Analyzing test results absolutely makes a big difference in athletic training. I tell all the doubters that if you can’t test it, you’re just guessing. Many trainers will utilize squats, bench press and deadlifting to determine strength gain. That’s important if you’re involved in power lifting. By all means, you have to see if you’re getting strong. But to this day, I have never seen a bench press, a squat rack or deadlifting plates on a football field. I’ve never seen them on a track. I’ve never seen them on a tennis court.
If you could actually quantify and measure the amount of explosive force that someone is producing, if you could quantify and measure the VO2 capacity of an athlete, if you could view patterns, if you could assess their body composition – then you could actually have really valid results that actually will help improve the performance of an athlete. The physiology and movement patterns must be tested to really achieve true performance gain.
