Potential Mediators of Load-Related Changes in Movement Complexity in Young, Healthy Adults.

J Athl Train 2019 Jan 18. Epub 2019 Jan 18.

Department of Kinesiology, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Context: Movement screening has become increasingly popular among tactical professionals. This popularity has motivated the design of interventions that cater to improving outcomes on the screens themselves, which are often scored in reference to an objective norm. In contrast to the assumptions underlying this approach, dynamical systems theory suggests that movements arise as a function of continuously evolving constraints and that optimal movement strategies may not exist.
