Gray Cook & Erwan Le Corre Exploring Functional Movement – Erwan Le Corre Video – What is Functional Movement
An Authentic and Natural Experience
Featuring Gray Cook & Erwan Le Corre
3-disc DVD set, a Functional Movement Systems production
This video was supplied by the presenter and is not an OTP production.
This video set opens with Erwan LeCorre putting Gray Cook through some movement basics. After their introduction, they’ll spend about 45 minutes going through a variety of movement drills that display postural integrity and quality movement patterning.
Gray Cook & Erwan Le Corre : Log Squat vs Weight Room Squat
Now that we have an impression of authentic movement, in Disc 2 we see Erwan putting two people through structured, progressively more difficult drills. In this disc, we’re invited to participate as he instructs us through a challenging set of ground-based MovNat maneuvers. We see the improvement in symmetrical movement over the course of the 90 minutes, and we get to listen in as Gray provides a few pointers. He’ll also give us his commentary to tie this work in with Functional Movement Systems.
How do you use this material in your gym or with your gym-based clients? For Disc 3 we move indoors, where Erwan shows how us to replicate these ground-based drills using common gym tools. Gray will teach us how to scale these movements as Erwan demonstrates, and through it all, Gray explains the connection with the movement screening model.
Disc 3 comes with the 41-page Exploring Functional Movement Exercise Manual. This comprehensive material defines the terms, separates the 37 exercises into movement categories, explains the practical applications, points out the important aspects of each movement, notes the relevant FMS tests for each exercise, and provides a concise table of the material by movement types and FMS patterns.
You’ll also find a 21-page introduction to Erwan Le Corre’s MovNat physical education system and movement efficiency principles, plus eight articles by Gray Cook, which he feels are important in learning the concepts found on the Exploring Functional Movement video.

Gray explains the “What & Why,” the relevance of breaking down the patterns, and describes the MovNat & FMS certifications.
The bulk of disc 3 is the comprehensive exercise library—exercises categorized by type discussion and the developmental path. These are indoor movement drills, demonstrated by Erwan in Gray’s physical therapy clinic.
