Have you ever had a functional movement assessment? Do you know whether you are using the correct muscles when you exercise? Chances are your movement patterns are way off and you are making compromises without even realising it. Personal Trainer Greg Brookes of gbpersonaltraining.com believes that when it comes to exercise, most gyms and personal trainers don’t focus on what is of prime importance – functional movement assessment and screening for movement dysfunction.
Why is good functional movement so important?
Because if your movement patterns are incorrect then you are using the wrong muscles when you exercise. For maximum impact you must use your large muscles, your prime movers. It is your large muscles that help you to create optimal calorie expenditure and prolonged afterburn or EPOC. Plus if you are using the wrong muscles you will tire easily leaving even less time to burn fat. You may be thinking, ‘ Oh, I move OK, I’m not in any pain. Well remember your body is a master adapter, it will compromise to get the job done. Most of us do this, even Greg! Chances are you are doing it everyday without knowing it.
The point is, unless you get your functional movement patterns corrected you will not be able to lose weight and burn fat as easily, you will tire and struggle to focus on the larger muscles that really get the job done. This is one of our secrets with fat loss.
Greg Brookes functionally screens all his clients. He corrects bad movement patterns and ensure that the correct muscles are engaged. He will make you bomb proof to injury so you can workout for longer and harder.
