Plots showing the mean ± standard error of rotation/twist of the 8 athletes in the lowest quartile of LT (left) and 8 in the highest quartile of LT (right). Peak twist was lower in athletes in the highest quartile of LT (8.5 ± 2.9 vs. 12.9 ± 2.6° P = 0.008) which was secondary to a loss of apical rotation (1.0 ± 3.3 vs. 6.0 ± 3.1° P < 0.001). Basal rotation was not different between the groups 6.5 ± 1.4 vs. 6.1 ± 2.6° P = 0.75
