Functional Performance Tests in Active Adults

The purpose of this study is to compare functional performance assessment scores (scored with a rubric based on your performance of different exercises) between current athletes, former athletes, and physically active individuals. These assessments are commonly used in athletics to evaluate for injury risk or performance.

Participation in this study includes a single visit lasting approximately 1-1.5 hours.

You will be asked to report to the READY Laboratory, complete questionnaires regarding your demographics and health history, and complete a series of athletic tests such as planks, squats, lunges, and hops.
