    Gray Cook - FMS: Applying the Model to Real Life Examples

    This live workshop, filmed in HD video using four cameras, took place during Perform Better's Long Beach pre-conference workshop, August 2011, and features Gray Cook assisted by Brett Jones. Their most recent DVDs, Kettlebells from the Ground Up, Kettlebells from the Center and Club Swinging Essentials, covered how to do specific exercises right. This one flips that idea and instead covers how to pick the right exercises. It's a comprehensive 4-disc DVD set that will fill in the blanks and answer your questions about using the Functional Movement Screen when working with your clients, athletes, and patients. Although different people have a variety of programming needs, we all require a baseline movement map to enhance safety and maximize results, and this workshop lays down that foundation.

    A properly executed movement screen provides a unique perspective, and in this workshop Gray shows us how to use the basic technology as a tool to develop programming unique to each individual. But it's much more than a movement screen discussion, because what Gray is best at is seeing how people move, how we learn to move, and how we re-learn movement. He's gifted at explaining what most of us don't even see, and you'll find yourself pausing the video over and over to stop and ponder concepts that he makes sound obvious, but that you've never considered.

    Only about a third of the room had been through the Functional Movement Screen workshop. You don't need to be FMS certified or even use the screens to benefit from this material. Certainly people who use the screens will get more practical use from the workshop, but Gray's off-the-cuff pearls and insights? Over and over I found myself stopping to think through these simple-sounding ideas.

    I was at the live event, listened to the audio file, edited the text file and worked through the video seven or eight times, and each time I discovered something new, something I missed the other times or that had a deeper meaning as I got more familiar with the ideas. For many trainers, strength coaches, and medical professionals, this material could be the key to how you work with clients, patients, and athletes in the years to come.
