Strength testing for seniors

Uncategorized Nov 16, 2021

Strength testing is only for athletes right?

Wrong.

While naturally, we think of million-dollar athletes when strength testing is mentioned, every individual regardless of their age, gender, and the activities that they do requires some strength capacity to be able to do the tasks that make up their daily lives.

Older individuals are some of the most common client types that health and fitness professionals deal with on a daily basis, yet for some reason, we often don’t assume performance testing is relevant for them. Yet these older individuals are often still physically active, doing activities and hobbies they enjoy in their later years.

In this blog we're going to explore why strength testing is important to geriatrics and some of the considerations you should have when choosing strength testing equipment.

What happens to strength as we age.

It is well appreciated that as we age, we lose some of the mobility that we once had. Joints and muscles become stiffer and...

How to test Rotator Cuff strength in throwing athletes.

research rotator cuff Oct 20, 2021

The ICC T20 World Cup is underway and thousands of throwing actions will take place over the next 4 weeks.

Did you know, at peak rotation, maximum humeral internal rotation velocity during throwing may reach 7500 to 7700 degrees per second (Seroyer et al 2010)? That’s approximately 4 times faster than a helicopter's rotor spins.

It’s no wonder then that some of the cricketers taking part in the ICC T20 World Cup this month need to have strong and functional rotator cuff muscles to generate and tolerate the forces involved in throwing.

How do the rotator cuff muscles work when throwing?

The above from Oyama 2012 illustrates the complexity of the throwing action and the demand on the tissues.

From this we can see that the shoulder forces acting on the shoulder work in a deceleration - acceleration - deceleration pattern. It may also be surprising to see that the rotator cuff works mostly to compress the shoulder joint and provide stability during these movements,...

Building Bullet Proof Hamstrings With Strength Testing

Uncategorized Sep 10, 2021

Grand finals are upon us and regardless of the code 2021 has been a challenging year for most teams, with success seemingly depending on a war of attrition against injury amongst clubs. 

As usual, the most common non-contact injury remains the hamstring strain and is responsible for the most games missed for most teams

Unfortunately, these injuries are not exclusive to professional players, with many semi-professional and amateur sportspeople also missing portions of the season due to these complaints which can also be a determinant for whether or not a season is a success. 

So with all the money that is poured into professional sport, surely we have a better understanding of how we can avoid hamstring injuries and help players stay out on the field? 

What do the hamstring muscles do?

If you’ve ever read an anatomy textbook then you probably said “flex the knee”, and while you are partly right it probably does not tell the full story.
