Better Movement Resources

Posted Dec 19 2010 7:51pm

Someone in the comments asked about how to re-establish good movement patterns.  I don't claim to have all the answers on this, but I would point out a few resources:

  • Stability, Sport, and Performance Movement by Joanne Elphinston
  • Athletic Body in Balance by Gray Cook
  • MovNat

John also pointed out Scott Sonnon's Circular Strength Training, though I don't have any experience with that. 

A big part of Gray Cook's work is his Functional Movement Screen.  This is a simple series of tests that show movement deficiencies.  Wouldn't it be great if gyms offered a Functional Movement Screen (or something similar to it) for new members?  This could contain very valuable information if a person found out they had major asymmetries or mobility issues.  They could address these problems before piling on the weights or the repetitive aerobics.
