This assessment is meant to look at the adductor muscle group endurance and to compare your dominant to the non-dominant side! Please watch the video to get a visual demonstration of how to perform the test. Below you will find a description of how to do so.
Start by laying on your side with one leg up on a box or chair at about 2--24 inches. Place your elbow and forearm on the ground so your elbow is in line with your shoulder joint. Next, while maintaining a position where the side of your trunk is parallel to the floor/ceiling, use the top leg to lift your lower leg and trunk up off the floor. Return to the starting position and complete as many reps as you can until the form is compensated or until the top leg adductor reaches max fatigue.
Some rules to remember with this assessment. The test ends if and when (1) the body is unable to maintain a position in which the side of the trunk is parallel to the floor or if the trunk starts to roll forward/backward (2) unable to reach a position in which the top leg, ankle and hip are in a straight line.
Prehab Goals & Normative Values:

Prehab Goal: Non-Dominant leg within 93 percent of the dominant leg
