We took this opportunity to change up our fitness testing and preceded it with a functional movement screen on every athlete. The concept briefly is to identify weakness and imbalance in an athlete's basic movement patterns before training on top of that pattern. Then we add appropriate movement prep and stretches to begin our training sessions and teach the body to fire muscles in the correct sequence, i.e. stabilizers first. Accordingly we removed a couple tests that are not functionally appropriate to our sport and added a couple that don't simply stress poor patterning while testing fitness or toughness. Some people think that if one can test well even with a funny pattern "than why change it?" but the consensus opinion is that this will lead to injury, "topping out" in performance and the great American sore back.
