Our Approach to Sport Specific Exercise Tests
The physician, while helping the athlete to improve the sports performance level prefers to examine his functional abilities in well defined laboratory conditions. In this way mostly parameters of the general fitness can be obtained. But particularly in élite athletes the assessment of the special training state changes by sport specific tests is of a high importance. For this reason the athlete should be examined either by field tests in sports facilities or in the specific exercise simulated in the laboratory, as it was so impressive demonstrated by Dal Monte (1,2).
