Isokinetic rotator cuff strength ratios in overhead athletes

Do overhead athletes have an altered isokinetic functional deceleration ratio?

In this review, the authors found evidence of a lower functional deceleration ratio (FDR, eccentric external rotation/concentric internal rotation) in overhead athletes, mostly driven by an increase in internal rotation power. Despite this, there was no consensus about which exercise program is more effective regarding the correction of this ratio.
