The past few months have roared past me as I am sure you noticed. My latest projects have included ways to improve how I establish baselines and evaluate my clients progress. Recently myself and a few colleagues finished up an initial study on the Upper Quarter Y Balance Test which is "in process" for publication (next few months) in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. The Upper and Lower Quarter Y Balance Test(s) grew out of the Star Excursion Balance Test which originated from Gary Gray's approach to assessing movement as first written in Total Body Functional Profile.
The Upper and Lower Y Balance Test allow us to objectively measure a clients movement strategy and establish a baseline to measure our program design against. The YBT is a researched based test that has been shown to be predictive of future injury. To learn more about the YBT drop me a note and I'll tell you everything I know and direct you to available resources.
Look forward to my updated Shoulder Stabilization and strengthening program to be discussed on Sportrehabexpert.com in the coming months
