In small groups and using the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) developed by Gray Cook, assess the quality of two classmates’ movement in the ‘Big Three’ functional movement patterns.
FMS Scoring reminders: 0 – pain (referral), 1 – can’t complete either movement pattern correctly, 2- completed a less demanding variation or part of the movement pattern, 3 – perfect completion of movement pattern.
A split pattern is where the movement involves on one side at a time (e.g., 1 leg hurdle step). A straight pattern where the movement involves both sides (e.g., 2 leg squat). The split pattern will demonstrate asymmetry that may not be noticed during a straight pattern movement.
In split pattern movements, record right and left sides separately. Look for asymmetry (i.e. differences on right and left side).
Note: The seven FMS movement patterns require familiarity with the following bony structures or superficial landmarks: Tibial tuberosity, ASIS, Lateral and Medial Malleoli, Distal wrist crease, Joint line of knee.
Remember to save, then mark this task complete and move onto the next task.
