Gray Cook, creator of Functional Movement Systems and Board-Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, Strength & Conditioning Coach and USWLF Weightlifting Coach, takes some time to talk about why asymmetries are important to identify and address. In this video, Gray speaks about how functional movement capabilities dictate the access to strength your brain will allow for certain muscle groups. “If you have dysfunctional movement patterns in your hips, you can’t actualize all of your glute strength, because giving those muscles 100% contractibility would injury you further.”
He states that the neuro-muscular relationship is what allows strength to be utilized and that core stability, which is essential in nearly every functional movement, is pattern specific. Meaning your pelvis needs the neuro-muscular “bandwidth” to support several different movement patterns.
Enter the Core Laser, a proprioceptive teaching aid, which utilizes direct visual feedback training to re-educate multi, 3 dimensional movements patterns. The Core Laser assists in the reeducation of neuro-pathways so your body can functional properly and realize its full strength potential.Tags: asymmetries, Brett Jones, core laser, direct visual feedback, FMS, functional mobility, Functional Movement systems, Gray Cook, laser gym, Orthopedic Specialist, proprioceptive
