Check out this quick little video on the Functional Movement Screen, also known as the FMS. I like to use the FMS as a first place, or a starting point for anyone that is about to start a new workout routine as it quickly provides me with a lot of information in a fairly safe environment. It’s appropriate for pretty much anyone whether you are just getting back into fitness, or coming back from a previous injury. Here’s a little bit about what I like about the test:
It’s relatively safe as a starting point for a first session
It provides a lot of valuable information for me to begin creating a program for a new client
It’s valid and repeatable so we can retest and compare
It gives me snapshot idea of how well you as a client can coordinate
It gives me a snapshot idea of how well you as a client can comprehend instruction
It’s a self limiting test meaning if you can’t do it, you generally will limit yourself and stop
Check out the video below to see what the test looks like, and let me know if you have any questions!
