Level 1 starts your engine. Level 2 kicks you into first gear. Whether the goal is to take your clients to 2nd, 3rd or 4th, skipping a gear will damage the engine. Level 2 is the foundation for your programming - the smooth transition from movement dysfunction to competency.
As professionals, you may already be equipped with training strategies, but how do you prioritize and adjust programming based on your clients' individual movement ability? FMS Level 2 delivers the roadmap for progressive movement outcomes. Learn how to cater to your clients' individual needs with customized exercise selection while simultaneously limiting the factors that inhibit their progress. The result? Self-aware clients and athletes reaching greater heights in lifelong movement health and vitality.
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Level 2 Course provides an opportunity to take results from the FMS and apply program design and exercise selection to improve your client's fundamental movement baseline. The Level 2 seminar will begin with an in-depth look at how to perform the movement screen and apply the scoring criteria correctly for best results. Then we will discuss how to interpret results from the FMS, decide what your training priorities are based on those results, and teach exercise applications and techniques to improve your clients training results.
The seminar will cover key concepts to understanding movement competency and its impact on exercise programming. There will be a highly interactive discussion and hands-on training opportunity to demonstrate key strategies and techniques used to improve movement patterns that have been identified by the FMS algorithm as a weak link.
This course highlights the FMS corrective exercise essentials: breathing, mobility, motor control, transitional postures, and functional loading. For each of the seven tests within the FMS, specific exercise progressions will be laid out in order to provide the best path to improve, maintain and strengthen those movement patterns. These training strategies broken down by movement patterns assist in determining where an individual should begin, as well as focus, within their exercise program in order to push clients to the best of their ability. Lastly, this seminar finishes with a presentation of case studies and group discussion on program design and integration for key training and rehabilitation environments.Course Objectives
