How to Know if Your Client Sucks at Functional Movement (Part 3)


Are you getting what this 3-part series is all about? The key  is that to excel at Functional Movement Training you need to have a really good grip on the 3 Layers of Dysfunctional Movement and what they mean...

A great picture that just came to me this morning is that of an American prairie where three tornadoes threaten to wreak havoc on the Functional Movement house. Dysfunctional Movement is usually a combination of one or more of these tornadoes that slowly moves a client towards injury, and you need to be prepared to take on at least one (1) of the three points (3 Layers) in order to begin coaching them out of it. 

So - it’s not enough to use a VIPR or Kettlebell or Battling Rope, or be able to prescribe the most relevant exercises for a particular client – they will most probably do it poorly (with the odd exception!).

A client is guilty of Dysfunctional Movement, until proven innocent, don’t you agree? There is always an injury whirlpool happening to a greater, or lesser degree. That is, they WILL have some Pain somewhere creating havoc, or they are likely to have a hidden Biomechanical Blockage from an old injury, or they will at least have some of what we look at today: they are possible going to be guilty of ….
 
Part 3: BAD MOVEMENT HABITS 
Of the three elements that create dysfunctional movement, this is the most common and least likely to directly cause injury. Many people with poor posture alone never suffer pain, or even have knees that move medially during squats, or some winging of the scapula – yet don’t get injured or suffer pain. 

However, this is firstly the easiest way to screen Dysfunctional Movement from a distance, and secondly if there is pain or injury, it is also the first place to begin what we call “Injury Prevention Coaching”.

[By the way, this material is all covered in depth in our upcoming online educational tool called the “Injury Prevention Kit” (IPK) - developed in conjunction with our close partners at Functional Training Institute. More info when it’s ready, I promise!]

In our third eBook How to Know if Your Client Sucks at Functional Movement (Part 3) let’s count down from #8 to #1 to gradually discover the most powerful life elements that contribute to Bad Habits of Movement, with #1 being generally accepted as the greatest contributor to on-going injury, and also the strongest predictor of future injury. 

Seriously - don’t you want to know who in your group, or which client, is most at risk of future injury?
