Our third video in the Performing and Scoring the FMS series we bring you the Rotary Stability. The rotary stability screen is one of the hardest movements to score a 3, and also one of the screens that is most commonly scored incorrectly.
This one isn’t as easy as the Active Straight Leg Raise Screen and Shoulder Mobility Screen because it’s more than just a measurement. Make sure that you are scoring the rotary stability screen correctly by checking out our video below.
It’s that simple!
We make sure that all of our clients have at least symmetrical 2’s before doing most major lifts and especially any dynamic or power exercises. Inability to perform 2’s on the rotary stability is an inability to control the “soft” or “inner” core, and the client would need more ground based core training before moving on to advanced exercises.
Check out the blog next week when we will bring you the Trunk Stability Pushup Screen to check that “hard” or “outer” core firing.
Although getting FMS certified is the best way to learn the active straight leg raise and the FMS, we understand that some people want to learn more about it before making the commitment. With this series we will show you each movement on the Functional Movement Screen so that you have an idea of how the Functional Movement Screen is done. If you want more information on the FMS check out www.functionalmovement.com or www.movementbook.com
With our first installment of Performing and Scoring the Functional Movement Screen we have the Active Straight Leg Raise.
The active straight leg raise is the first movement that needs to be corrected on the FMS movement hierarchy so this is where we will start.
Each week we will release a new video with each movement on the screen, followed by a series of how to red light movements based on the FMS, and corrective stategies to get your clients from Red Light exercises to Green Light exercises, this will be HUGE for people that are want to use, or are currently using , the Functional Movement Screen.
So stay tuned for much more info an how to use the FMS, and how to incorporate the results into your small and large group training. This is something that we are truly passionate about, and love to teach to others.
