The dynamic hop test is used to determine deficiencies in the structural balance of your lower body. It reveals information about the eccentric strength of the following muscle groups:
The dynamic hop test measures the lower body’s functional ability to absorb force quickly while maintaining structural integrity. The test requires that you hop off of a box of progressive heights and land on one foot.
Upon hopping off the box, your muscles are forced to contract instantaneously and forcefully. Deformations in the landing – hopping forward, heel bouncing around, knee caving inward, etc., are sources of eccentric weakness. When two distinct issues are identified, the test is concluded. These problems are corrected with the proper strength training program design and implementation.
