Description The aim of the paper was to assess the condition of H/Q ratio amongs the students from Faculty of Sports Studies at the Masaryk University in connection with the risk of damage to the anterior cruciate ligament. 49 % of boys and 70 % of girls does not achieve at the level H/Q = 0.6 (at an angular velocity of 300°/s). This group has the critical values of H/Q, which should be solved (in terms of the structure the musculoskeletal load) during the studying at MU FSpS through strength compensatory interventions.Although the strength and proper activation of the hamstring is only one of the several factors which ACL corruption may affect, it must be reflected within fitness training.
