Chris and Sam sat down with Ben Ashworth to discuss athletic shoulder strength testing. Ben is a physio, coach, high performance consultant, and PhD candidate specializing in shoulder rehabilitation, monitoring, and performance. We dive into: the conception of the ASH test, differentiating short versus long lever testing, reliable testing setups, rate of force vs peak force, specific numbers and percentages to use as rough standards, frameworks for return to practice and sport, and much more.
