<![CDATA[Today we will be looking at functional movement by using movement screen and correctives. We will be using screen tests to determine where you are on the scale. Below is an image of perfect squat, this is what we did when we were toddlers. There are many reasons why this function becomes so difficult to do as an adult. Strength WOD Overhead Stick Squat Test Score: 0-3
2=1 Minor Fault
3= No faults
What are “Faults”? Feet externally rotate: This may indicate tightness in the soleus, gastrocnemius, peroneals, hamstring and piriformis and/or weakness in the gluteus medius. There may also be a restriction in ankle joint dorsiflexion, since the body will pronate the foot to gain more motion in the ankle mortise. If dorsiflexion is limited, there is a posterior chain extensibility dysfunction or ankle joint extensibility problem, or both. Knees buckle / hip internal rotation:May indicate weak/inhibited gluteus maximus/medius, tight adductor complex and iliotibial band. May be an inability to control hip movements, pointing to an underlying motor control stability problem. Low back rounds:May indicate overactive external obliques, compensating for a weak core. Arms fall forward:May indicate tight latissimus dorsi and /or pectoralis major/minor and weak lower trapezius, rhomboids, teres minor and infraspinatus.
