Functional Movement Systems:
Applying the Model to Real Life Examples
by Gray Cook
with Brett Jones
- know how to coach specific exercises, but aren’t always sure how to PICK the right exercises for your clients
- want to learn how to correctly screen clients across a wide variety of backgrounds so you can establish a baseline and build a corrective strategy
- are familiar with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS), but are looking for a greater understanding of how to apply it correctly with your clients and use it to develop programming unique to each person
… then you’ll love this presentation by Gray Cook and Brett Jones.
In Functional Movement Systems: Applying The Model To Real Life Examples, Gray Cook and Brett Jones will speed you through the learning curve and show you how to apply the FMS like a veteran.
They explain the important concepts behind the FMS. But where you’ll really find the most value is when they pick people from different backgrounds, take them through the FMS screen, and then make corrective and programming recommendations—explaining each step and their thought process along the way.
Here’s just SOME of what Gray and Brett go through in the DVD—
- What the Functional Movement Screen is, including its purpose and limitations
- Mistakes people make when training and coaching
- The seven FMS tests: how to perform them, what each test identifies, what order you should conduct them, how to score the tests, and how to interpret the scores
- Which order you should address issues identified in the FMS tests
Corrective approaches covering the age spectrum of fitness clients, post-rehab clients and athletes of all levels, including:
- A female triathlete who scored ‘1s’ on the straight leg raise and trunk stability pushup.
- A martial artist and powerlifter who has an asymmetry in the hurdle step
- A Highland Games competitor, strength coach and personal trainer who has an asymmetry in the rotary stability test
- A person with a flat foot and a partial clubfoot, who scores ‘1s’ on the inline lunge, active straight leg raise, and trunk stability pushup tests
- 50+ year-old woman who has an asymmetry in the shoulder mobility and in-line lunge test
- The one time you SHOULDN'T correct an asymmetry
- and much more
