This video should be especially helpful for those tasked with developing and running exercise programs, here is an awesome discussion between Gray Cook, developer of the Function Movement Screen (FMS) and Kelly Starrett (Mobility WOD) on responsible strength training using the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) as a tool to determine whether a particular exercise is wise to continue training, or whether more work on strength and mobility is required before engaging in a particular exercise.


Gray Cook calls this “Programming constriction” which basically means that if you have an ugly body weight squat for example, you need to earn the movement competency (through mobility and strength work) before putting a bar over your shoulders or above your head with weight on it. Continuing to train a bad movement pattern with increased loads will eventually set you up for injury.
