Reset, Reinforce, Reload
Here Gray Cook explains the concept of resetting, reinforcing, then reloading, and tells us why it’s a mistake to get these in the wrong order. This talk will also give you an idea of the difference between the FMS and the SFMA, and how the same exercises can be used for different results depending on the situation.
“When we find dysfunctional movement either in the screen or the SFMA, we don’t just see that as substandard biomechanics where we’re forced to compensate because a body part doesn’t move. When a body part doesn’t move well, it also imparts impaired sensory information into the system. You don’t feel the same way, so you don’t move the same way. Don’t just think about it as an output problem. It’s an input problem.” ~Gray Cook
