Stuart McGill, Gray Cook Video — Stuart McGill Functional Movement Screen Review — Stuart McGill and Craig Liebenson Video

Today, a movement-based approach is used by a wide array of professions and occupations, including physical therapists, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, and athletes.

One of the most popular assessment tools that has come from this movement-based approach is Gray Cook and Lee Burton’s Functional Movement Screen (FMS).

The FMS and the SFMA, the related medical-based assessment tool, have gained popularity due to their simplicity and ease-of-use. They allow many professionals to screen and assess their clients’ movement patterns, and make subsequent decisions on further assessments, rehabilitation or programming.

Though the FMS and SFMA have been both been the subject of academic research for years, there still remains a lot of debate and controversy behind the validity and value of a quick, simple and general tool like the FMS, especially for injury prediction.

In particular, many people have highlighted a supposed difference in approach to screening, assessment and spine stabilization between Gray Cook and Stuart McGill, one of the world’s leading low back experts.

Craig Liebenson realized this, and proposed for these two giants in the field to present their approaches, clarify their positions and critically analyze the FMS.

The result is what you’ll find inside this DVD, Assessing Movement: A Contrast in Approaches & Future Directions.

In the DVD—

  • Gray explains the principles, intent and incorrect assumptions people make about the FMS
  • Stuart reviews the literature surrounding the FMS, and highlights areas of agreement and disagreement
  • Stuart outlines his approach to assessments in Developing the Ideal Screen or Assessment
  • Gray demonstrates the FMS tests, and Stuart demonstrates some of the assessment tools he uses with clients
  • Craig discusses the history of human movement in medicine and patient care
  • Gray and Stuart take questions about both their methods
  • …and much more

This full-day presentation spans across six discs, totaling 5 hours and 40 minutes. The event was held by Stanford Sports Medicine at The Cemex Auditorium of Stanford University. Tickets to this event were originally $400.

Whether you find yourself in the more restrictive environment of the clinical side, or the strength and conditioning and fitness end, Assessing Movement: A Contrast in Approaches & Future Directions will dig deep and help you think about the principles that will guide you in bridging the gap between rehabilitation and performance.

You will walk away more informed about the movement approach, the FMS tool, and how to critically analyze the tools available for you to help your clients get a better end result.

    One of the more insightful DVDs I have viewed. Professionals in their elements providing us with a constructive analysis of one of the most common underlying elements of exercise prescription. Another great tool for the “coaches toolbox” and definitely gets the brain ticking!

    Excellent video and loved the different approaches by each presenter. Different perspectives with a respect for each others work. Powerful combination. Highly recommend.

  3. 5 out of 5


    The videos are exceptional in there content, presentation and production values. This is clearly an event that those of us involved in rehabilitation, performance enhancement and teaching will benefit from. The extra “stuff” is also a great and favored bonus.

  4. 5 out of 5


    Better than this, only attending in person! This has been so far the most understandable lecture I have taken online. Full of mindful information. I would recommend movement lectures to everyone looking for better understanding and fulfill knowledge on this subject. Better than this, only attending in real life, and listening to this great sharing experiences from 3 key specialists Stuart McGill, Gray Cook and Craig Liebenson.
