Abstract

Inter-limb asymmetries have been a popular topic of investigation in the strength and conditioning literature. Recently, numerous equations have been highlighted that can quantify these between-limb differences. However, no distinction was provided on whether their use was applicable to both bilateral and unilateral tests. This article provides a framework for selecting the most appropriate asymmetry equation based on the selected test method, ensuring accurate calculation and interpretation. In addition, considerations for data analysis have also been included as a guide for practitioners on the relevance of monitoring inter-limb differences longitudinally.
