Asset Details

  • Description:
  • Examples of how mediating and moderating variables explain the association between a workload spike and subsequent injury. Top, neuromuscular fatigue is shown as a mediator (ie, domino) of the effect of workload spikes on injury. In this example, a spike in workload causes an increase in neuromuscular fatigue, and an increase in neuromuscular fatigue leads to an injury. Bottom, aerobic fitness acts as a moderator (ie, dimmer switch) of the relationship between workload spikes and injury. In this case, a given spike in workload will elicit a different injury risk dependent on an individual’s fitness level.
