Next in our Red to Green Series we bring you the Rotary Stability Screen. When someone has a 1 on the rotary stability screen it’s a sign that their inner or “soft” core is not optimally functioning. The client may either have poor timing of the core, overall weakness, or an asymmetry.
In this circumstance, we want to make sure that we red light power movements like cleans and snatches, and anything explosive like jumping or running. It’s also best to avoid a lot of hard bracing exercises until the have the ability to easilty fire the inner core (reflexive firing) before the outer core (bracing for load). Honestly, is best to keep these clients on the floor as long as possible until you get the rotary stability dialed in to 2’s on the FMS.
The good news is, we have a few great exercises to get your rotary stability dialed in, and a few exercises to challenge it once you do.
