Required Equipment Before the start of the test, it is important to ensure you have the following items: Reliable and consistent testing facility e.
One of the following: Contact mat, force platform, linear position transducer, high-speed video camera and software, or an infrared platform. Performance recording sheet. With the test apparatus ready e. When instructed by the test administrator, the athlete must jump as high as possible and attempt to land in the same location on the platform as they took-off from. The athlete must perform a minimum of three jumps so that performance averages can be calculated. Scoring System Now you know what test apparatus you are using and how to calculate jump height, this next section is very straightforward.
Considerations Then conducting the test there are several factors that need to be taking into consideration before you begin — some being: Individual effort — Sub-maximal efforts will result in inaccurate scores. Varying take-off and landing positions. Arm-swing or no arm-swing. Countermovement drop depth.
Flexing on the ankles, knees, or hips during flight. Validity and Reliability The CMJ has been shown to be a valid and reliable measure of lower-body explosive power 3.

Int J Sports Med —, Preventative care provided by an athletic trainer has a positive return on investment for employers. ATs are able to reduce injury and shorten rehabilitation time for their patients, which translates to lower absenteeism from work or school and reduced health care costs. The Current Procedural Terminology CPT codes for athletic training services are: athletic training evaluation and re-evaluation ATs can find resources to help demonstrate their value in the Revenue and Reimbursement section.

They have been studying the process through which the sympathetic nervous system communicates with the vascular system during total body heating and cooling, particularly in aging adults.
As humans age, this communication process becomes less efficient and can cause an increase in cardiovascular risk. Stanhewicz and Greaney are studying this process in attempt to determine intervention strategies that may mitigate the cardiovascular risk.
ACSM is pleased to announce the release of the annual Team Physician Consensus Conference statement, which is a blend of research evidence and expert consensus providing guidance and teaching tools for physicians working in the sports medicine field, regardless of geographical location or level of team or athlete. The TPCC consensus statement focuses on Issues in the Female Athlete and covers a variety of topics related to the health of the female athlete. MYTH: It's "normal" for female athletes to lose their period, or stop menstruating. Mary Jane De Souza, Ph. Whether it's building knowledge, building networks or building careers, ACSM can get you there.
Together, we can make change happen.
