Gray's premise is beautiful in its simplicity: Training movement can fix muscles, but training muscles rarely fixes movement. Since all of sport is movement, his 80/20 approach is then astounding in its effectiveness. For the time invested, the FMS and its cousins are the best tools I've seen for producing bullet-proof athletes and pain-free non-athletes in record time. Tim Ferriss, author of the #1 NY Times bestseller, The 4-Hour Workweek


Movement is a vivid discovery, a fundamental and explicit teaching in which the return to basics takes on a whole new meaning. In it, author Gray Cook crosses the lines between rehabilitation, conditioning and fitness, providing a clear model and a common language under which fitness and rehabilitation professionals can work together. By using systematic logic and revisiting the natural developmental principals all infants employ as they learn to walk, run and climb, Gray forces a new look at motor learning, corrective exercise and modern conditioning practices.

The discoveries, lessons and approaches you'll learn—
* How to view and measure movement quality alongside quantity
* How to ascertain dysfunctional patterns with the Functional Movement Screen
* What clinicians need to know about the Selective Functional Movement Assessments
* When to apply corrective strategies and how to determine which strategies to use
* How to map movement patterns and understand movement as a behavior and not just as a mechanical idea

This book is not simply about the anatomy of moving structures. Rather, it serves a broader purpose to help the reader understand authentic human movement, and how the brain and body create and learn movement patterns. Our modern dysfunctions are a product of our isolated and incomplete approaches to exercise imposed on our sedentary lifestyles.

A return to movement principles can create a more comprehensive exercise and rehabilitation model, a model that starts with movement.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ein wunderbar klar gegliedertes Buch, das von vorne bis hinten durchdacht ist. Für jeden der im Sport tätig ist ein einfaches und schnell nachzuvollziehendes System, das fast keine Fragen offen lässt. Die dezidierte US ist für den Manualtherapeuten nicht ganz ausreichend, und in diesen Teilen auch in der Beschreibung der US etwas oberflächlich. ABER trotzdem 5 Sterne für all die Arbeit ein schlüssiges System zu kreieren, dass Physiotherapie und Basistraining zusammenbringt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Changing Lives with Movement 30. Oktober 2010
Von John P. Nickelston - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
How does one go about writing a review of a Gray Cook book? I mean really, where do you even start? I have read the book about ten times by now and still wondered where to begin. Staring at a blank page, I kept thinking about the monstrous task of doing it justice. There is so much knowledge packed into these pages it boggles the mind. So I decided to do something a bit different and give you a perspective of this book and how it has changed the way I practice medicine. The application of the principles contained in this book has changed the lives of many people. The real world people I see every day in my clinic. People who have suffered in pain for years now have their quality of life restored because of the applied principles in this book.

`Movement' was a paradigm shift for me as a clinician. Gray opened my eyes to the wonders of human movement and the systems necessary to understanding it. This was the system I had been searching for in determining why people were getting injured, and why their pain syndromes kept returning. People would ask me, `why does my pain keep coming back?', and I never had an answer that made sense to me. That is until I discovered Movement. Here is a summary of my journey through `Movement.'

This introductory chapter sets the stage for the paradigm shift. It's an awakening to understanding human movement. The section on dysfunction, pain and rehabilitation is something to read a hundred times. The mobility and stability rules are powerful enough to change the clinical outcome of almost every client. I never learned this stuff in school. This one chapter taught me more than I had learned reading entire textbooks. Gotta look at the body as a whole. Imagine that?

In school I learned anatomy, physiology, origins, insertions, and disease processes. Nobody talked about movement. Gray does a nice job transitioning the reader from understanding how the body changes from anatomical function to movement function. The Functional Movement Systems are taught from the FMS (Functional Movement Screen) to the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment). From a clinical standpoint I can say this is the most superior and effective system I have found to evaluate clients. Gray teaches you the screening process, assessment criteria and a system of correction to arrive at your final destination.

There is something of value in this book no matter who you are; doctor, trainer, strength coach, physical therapist, chiropractor, exercise enthusiast or just someone wanting to learn more about getting healthy. The stages of assessments, correction and strategies are outlined so you know when and if your program is working to the benefit of your client. Every patient who entrusts me with getting them well is evaluated by the `Movement System'. I no longer simply examine the areas that hurt on a patient. I look at how well they move. When I get them to move smarter and move better, they begin to feel better.

The flow of the book is great at introducing you to understanding movement and then guiding you to the corrective strategies. Many books are good at teaching information, yet fall flat at the integration of that information into action steps. Gray gives you a flow chart system of ideas and principles which help you arrive at your final is a veritable list of `if this; then that.' So you are never at a loss of ultimately learning what you need in order to get the results you want. As a clinician, this is a goldmine of logic and integration. Most people fail in their quest for health because there is not a definable system to follow for success. A roadmap if you will. `Movement' will be your GPS.

I can say unequivocally that `Movement' has been the single most powerful resource to change and improve my skills as a health professional. I learned the material, absorbed the principles, and applied the methods to get results. Simple really. A heartfelt thank you to Gray from myself and my patient's.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A few good ideas ad nauseum 28. Dezember 2012
Von J. Primeaux - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Let me first say that I am very much inclined to be sympathetic with Gray Cook's overall message. It speaks to my existing disposition concerning exercise. Here's a brief sum up: Modern fitness culture is guilty of heaping attempts at strength and endurance gains atop dysfunctional movement. This tends to cause compensation in joints and muscles not intended to sustain loads which leads to inefficiency of movement, pain, discomfort, and often injury. A more proper hierarchy for developing physical ability is Mobility->Stability->Strength in basic movement patterns, and on top of this we can support more specific skills.

If you are looking for a technical book, something which will go through a variety of ways to view and interpret the FMS (Functional Movement Screen) along with appropriate corrective exercises, then this book falls short. The detail regarding the screen itself could be better and more concisely expressed as a pamphlet. Likewise, the corrective exercise section is very sparse, particularly considering the size of this book, and primarily is filled up with the repetition of Cook's main ideological explanation. While I was hoping for some solid exercises, he mostly encourages people to 'do what they know' within the very general framework of his idea (Mobility>stability>strength). This is obviously not helpful if you don't actually have a background in physical therapy.

So rather than a technical book, it is a sort of Philosophy of Fitness book, but even this it does poorly. For the first part, Cook is no writer, and this book is best when it is at its driest, clearly explaining the particulars of an exercise or details of the FMS. When talking philosophy, Cook cannot do much more than repeat himself, so the book can maybe be more likened to a Manifesto, a work of ideology, rather than Philosophy. There is no appeal to larger studies or to broader scientific principles. Part of this is understandable since Cook opposes the reductivist tendencies of much of biomechanics, which ignores the whole for the part. But an understanding of biomechanics clearly informs his understanding of his own practice and of his system, but instead of then informing the reader of how best to utilize an understanding of biomechanics, he basically leaves it out, with only one or two exceptions in the corrective strategies section.

I find it difficult to write this review without mentioning Moshe Feldenkrais's 'Awareness Through Movement', because much of what Gray Cook says regarding movement and correcting movement through sensory experience-- because we cannot correct it through pure intellectual effort--jives with Feldenkrais. Now ATM had its own problems, but the philosophical sections were written with wit and clarity of thought, while the sample exercises, which were implicitly written so that you could experience the inklings of what they were after, helped to illustrate his principles. I only mention that book because it seems like the sort of book that Cook 'should' have written. As it is, I came away from this book feeling as though I had just read an extended sales brochure for the rest of his system. Even Pavel's books I find to be entertaining in their shameless self-promotional, but reading Movement left me feeling like I had just watched 3 hours of the same Sunday morning infomercial about selling realestate, feeling confident that I should know a lot about realestate now, but pretty sure I didn't actually learn anything for the amount of time I spent on it.

With 400+ pages to read, I would have expected more time spent on how to interpret the screen and the majority of time to be spent on explaining corrective exercises. I will say that there were times in reading this book that I was inspired by what Cook said, whether that is reasonable or not, and it is solely for this and the few other tidbits of knowledge he was generous enough to share (if you have low back pain you probably have tight hips) that I give it two stars. Everything Cook says could have been fit into 100 pages, and even then there would have been room for more pictures to illustrate what he's saying. Then, if I'd wanted to, I could have reread the book. (I suppose people don't do that anymore; they read a book once so if you want to have your message resound you better make it a really long book). If you want to read this, definitely do not spend the money on the hardcover, and I'd say don't get the softcover either. I would suggest the kindle version, as it is not really a book you will go back to reread to gather new wisdom nor to reference. Its decidedly not a classic. I still think Cook knows what he's doing, and I myself plan on reading his Athletic Body in Balance book when I can get it from my library, but insofar as 'Movement' is concerned, its ponderous and not informative.

5.0 von 5 Sternen NFL Director of Athletic Performance 30. März 2011
Von Jeff Fish - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I'd like to begin by saying I am not one to go public with review of a product, I prefer to talk to the source personally with any feedback. While I have done that on a number of levels with Gray, I feel this book - and ultimately, this concept needs more recognition. We come from different backgrounds as strength coaches, athletic trainers and rehabilitation specialists. There have been different colleges and curriculums attended. There have been different motivations from performance based priorities to treatment and injury care. We have taken different paths to eventually get to a point of influencing athletes (professional or amateur, young or old, male or female, injured or healthy, and all sports or recreational activities in between). At the end of the day though, don't we all strive for the same enhance the quality of movement of the person no matter what group they fall in above? That, in my opinion, is our responsibility as fitness professionals. Let's not clutter the definition, the mission of the personal trainer, coach, rehab specialist, or injury care person is to help your client/athlete experience improved movement that will contribute in a positive way to the experience or success of that sport/hobby.

Having said that, I have designed and implemented thousand of protocols and programs to try to get the most from my athletes over the last 20+ years. I had always wondered early in my career why after 6-8 weeks of strenuous training why my players would begin to hit a plateau just before testing. To cut to the chase, I was unaware of their fundamental movement restrictions and asymmetries that were limiting potential to improve. So in my attempts to keep "pushing" the players to the end, I actually was not helping them...honestly, putting them at a greater risk of injury.

There was no FMS at the time. I was able to meet Gray almost 10 years ago and was subjected to the early days of the FMS. This changed the way I looked at total athlete development. While my methods to enhance strength, power, speed, and conditioning, I learned there were elements to overall movement that were needed before I could expect improvements in those performance areas. This education opened up a greater understanding of human movement, that in our traditional college curriculums of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics we did not receive.

Gray has pushed the standard high in terms of research in this area. To be able to set a baseline when assessing an athlete for the first time is critical for the above-mentioned professionals. A strength coach should know the red flags of a healthy athlete before starting increased activity, the athletic trainer should know them as well to help take a proactive approach to injury reduction (this makes his job easier in the end = less injuries), and the rehab professional should have a guide as to where to return the injured athlete to sport. This becomes a common language that all professional can speak intelligently and consistently about.

Gray has captured this in a tool that can be used to establish this baseline in under 10 minutes. I use it with every person that I will eventually train - I do not write workout programs anymore, I write individual based systems to enhance movement and reduce injury risk, and I reset the system every 6-8 weeks.

This book covers these concepts in great detail, please take the time to read each section multiple times. I have found the additional time spent on the front end to educate (this is not easy material to grasp at first glance), pays itself back more than you could ever imagine. It takes time to put the puzzle together - I know some of the negative things said about the concepts here are made from not understanding the depths of Gray's work. The book illustrates areas that unlock many questions we have had through the years regarding reoccurring injury, risk factors, and performance limiting variables. I have learned about movement and how to correct poor fundamental patterns through these concepts, and have witnessed movement changes in a matter of minutes that I never believed could occur. I have been able to break down athlete restrictions in a matter of weeks and make changes that no one else could find, let alone correct over several years previously. Think about the profound impact that will have on your client/athlete, when you change their lives on and off the field in terms of improved movement and less pain and micro trauma.

Gray has made a significant impact in the field of movement. His research is second to none, and his passion to provide the latest in movement based education is endless. There are thousands of books out there covering sets and reps, modalities, and speed, but efforts to improve those areas can be slowed and even counter-productive if we do not know the underlying individual restrictions and asymmetries. Gray has put together a total package of effective tools that encourages collaboration among professionals to make sound, evidence-based decisions. Gray is truly a leading resource in our field, and I appreciate him putting his thoughts into this book for all of us to benefit from. There are not many resources like this on the market that unites all fitness professionals as one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Rosetta Stone of Fitness, Functionality & Clinical Firepower 11. März 2011
Von Mark Cheng - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Gray Cook's MOVEMENT is the Rosetta Stone of the modern era in the fields of athletic performance, physical therapy, fitness training, and pain management & rehabilitation.

If you ever wanted:
* a way to understand how to find your way out of your aches & pains,
* a way to improve how your patients recover, or
* a way to improve your chances of making it through the athletic season without suffering a non-contact injury,
then you need to not only own this book, but put your eyes on it and keep your mind it in more than any other reference that you use as a professional!

Clinicians, trainers, and athletes all deal with the same essential issue - how to make the human body function at its peak levels of performance. The only problem is that all three groups have been speaking past each other for decades, focusing dogmatically on differences in approach because there was no lingua franca.

Clinicians chose to focus on chasing after painful sites, trainers focused on increasing output through programming, and athletes (& patients) just suffered and did their best to maximize their performance. Without a common language, without an agreed upon starting point, without a tool with which to calibrate the human in question, each profession just relied on its own schooling & often informal training to carry on.

Cook saw the plethora of shortfalls in this approach & wrote Movement to standardize a language for the physician, the coach, the athlete, and everyone else who wants to feel or move better so that they might speak a common language, operate from a common perspective, and measure improvement in a common manner.

Instead of each professional flying solo, Gray Cook, one of the brightest minds in the field of human performance, along with Functional Movement Systems co-founder, Dr. Lee Burton, came up with this master textbook to help us understand the powerful synergy that can result from getting every one on the same page. As a clinician, as a martial arts instructor and researcher, and as a strength coach, I have found no greater reference and no greater mentor.

Von MK - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is highly recommended by many strength coaches. And to be fair the kindle version costs not that much. Based on the recommendations I was keen to read it. While diving into the text I was waiting that the introduction ends and the content begins. After the x-th repetition of the philosophy and importance of the FMS I jumped to the exercise part. Unfortunately that part is short. Of course, it's need to have only a little more than a hand full of tests and those are not bad, but where is the part about how to fix problems? I searched and found nothing. Well, again a lot of text repeating the philosophy and importance of the FMS, but nothing concrete, nothing specific.
I did not see the DVD. Maybe it is better to purchase that one. The book, however, is awful. There is not much to learn expected that the FMS is really great. I could take nothing out of it. Probably one has to take a course by him, but why to write a book of 400 pages then?

Before "Movement" I read "Stability, Sport and Performance Movement: Practical Biomechanics and Systematic Training for Movement Efficacy and Injury Prevention" by J. Elphinston. This book is far less well know. Probably because the authors is Australien. However, that book is much more helpful for amateur athletes and coaches alike. You find a good introduction explaining problems with stability and the effects and perfomance. I actually bought the book after reading and excerpt and doing some of the tests and exercises. I was amazed by the immediate effect and the book is great in that the movement explanations really allow to follow along and to figure out how to do it. She tells what you should feel and what not. And it did add weight to the bar. So I strongly recommend that book.

The "Movement" book is, however, terribly written and lacks information for the user other that the FMS is really great.
