Purpose: Detect observable muscular deviations related to overactive and under-active skeletal muscle.
Equipment: (2) Dowels or 25 lbs dumbbells
- Begin by instructing the participant to stand with feet shoulder width apart and arms at their waist in a neutral position.
- The dowels should be placed on the floor just to the outside and parallel with each their feet.
- Instruct the subject to hinge at the hip, and while keeping posture, squat towards the ground and grasp both dowels. Have the participant maintain position for a two-count before returning to a standing position in order to accurately observe each checkpoint.
- Repeat as many times in order to fully observe and record each checkpoint.
