Do you care who gives you CPR?

Might be a strange title for an article

 

But hear me out big fella

 

Now there is a lot of scepticism about the FMS out there

 

Maybe it’s a case of not quite knowing what its role is

 

For me it’s pretty simple, it’s give us an indication of the movement abilities of a player

 

And it can provide the tools for S&C’s and physios to have a common language

 

Now it can get bashed a lot by people saying that it can be administered by someone who hasn’t done a degree, has no sports specific experience and so shouldn’t be given too much value

 

But I like that

 

Because we aren’t looking at sports specific movement

 

We want to just know how you move

 

Whether you struggle with and overhead squat, or that there is a big disconnect between upper and lower body on the stability press up

 

Or you struggle to keep your heels down on the in line lunge

 

These all feed in to an overall picture of the player

 

Just like capacity scores like a yoyo, 20m sprint or counter movement jump

 

When you have the whole picture then you know where to start

 

And you know what their movement capacities can thrive on when loaded

 

Could be that for you the squat will be more beneficial than the deadlift or hip thrust

 

Or you’ve got a big upper body asymmetry and so barbell lifting overhead would probably be a bad idea

 

But it shouldn’t matter who gives the tests, as long as they know what they are doing

 

Like I started with, you wouldn’t be bothered if the person giving you CPR to save your life was a dr or a cleaner

 

As long as the job got done
