While reading Precision Nutrition's recent blog post, I came across a video put out by Nike which shows top coaches using the Functional Movement Screen to assess some NFL players readiness for training.
This is the same tool I use in my initial assessment process and it just goes to show the importance of movement screening. If it's good enough for the best NFL guys...
Whether you want to run a 5K or play in the Super Bowl, you NEED good fundamental movement patterns. It isn't a matter of IF you get injured, it's WHEN. If you try to run or perform any other higher level activity on top of a faulty movement pattern, eventually you are going to get hurt!
Check out the video. Sure seems like the pros are buying into the concept!
