You probably know that we do FMS (functional movement testing) with our players

 

Its one of the tools we use to assess where they are physically

 

We feel its important to test the fundamentals as well as capacity

 

For so long most of the importance has been put on capacity testing

 

So things such as YOYO or bleep, sprints, jumps, skinfolds ect have been the things that players and coaches have at the forefront of their mind

 

And of course they provide some great data, and can help steer us into the direction we need to go with players

 

But for me you can get outstanding value from using a movement test such as the FMS

 

It informs you exactly where the player may be struggling

 

And when you have a backroom team who work closely together, can really help coaches with knowing if the player is actually physically capable of doing the things that they want them to do

 

There cant be much more soul destroying, for the player and the coach, then them trying to work on a change to their action but them just not being able to get it

 

Frustration is huge, when it could be put to bed pretty quick

 

Now the real value of the FMS for us is that you just don’t get a score

 

It’s the easiest thing in the world to give someone a score for their movement screening

 

But it can be just an arbitrary figure

 

Unless you have something behind it

 

Which is the gold in the FMS

 

The software they have to input the score, and have it spit out an individualised program is fantastic

 

Just doing any testing, but not having the knowledge or help to fix it is pointless

 

And that’s where S&C really needs to improve

 

At the moment a corrective for a squat seems to just be a different squat

 

We’ve got to be smarter than that

 

IF you want your movement analysed then we have the FMS as the first stage of our online 1 to 1 programs

 

Then a strength phase and bowling specific
