Product Description

Movement Prep – FMS and Movement Prep – Correctives in Movement Preparation

This lecture is about using movement preparation to correct and improve movement deficiencies. Joe Sansalone links the FMS, corrective strategies involving joint mobility and core stability, and classic movement preparation drills into an organized format that corrects movement pattern weak links while preparing the body for the demands of the training session.

“We start with mobility. Get mobility first. Then, re-activate and insert some stability where it’s needed. Then, teach individuals to own and use that mobility and stability through patterns. This dynamically prepares for the day’s training. It brings the most efficient set of movement patterns to the training session.”~Joe Sansalone

  2. Karen A. Johnson, MPT, CFMT

    Joe Sansalone presented an outstanding lecture on the topic of movement preparation. After acknowledging the work of his mentors, he discussed ways in which he has been able to achieve improved results with his clients, based on his extensive knowledge and experience. He shares that in his experience, movement preparation is even more effective when the initial focus is on correcting the client’s movement dysfunctions. Once the movement dysfunctions have been corrected, preparation for specific sports or training sessions is much more effective. Additionally, improvements are held more consistently. Joe’s lecture is organized and easy to follow. I am sure that the information presented will be helpful to listeners.
