Functional Movement Systems Review

Functional Movement Systems Book Review

While very detailed in its explanations of movement, this book is tough to finish.  The information is good, but it’s very disorganized.  It will take a lot of work to learn the SFMA and FMS just from this book, but it can be done.  As for the screens themselves, I use them regularly in my practice.  While they aren’t perfect or comprehensive, no other screen is either.  If you make your way through the first five chapters, you will learn some of principles behind safe and effective training clients.
