Written by Brandon Hetzler Case Study
<== Video for l9k0NRAa ==>
- How do we progress from start to finish? Case study of a 16 year old cross country athlete (trained over the past 2 years)
- Plagued with common runners injuries
- Multiple asymmetries in Functional Movement Screen
- Unable to perform dead lift, push up, or pull up
- Training sessions began with corrective exercises to address her Functional Movement Screen.
- After ensuring mobility was maintained, more stability was introduced before moving into a vertical stance.
- The program eventually introduced the athlete to squatting and was able to progress to a loaded overhead squat.
- Athlete was screened every 2-3 months
- Most recent Functional Movement screen was 17 with no asymmetries.

Thank you Brandon. As a runner I found this podcast to be most helpful. It is so great to see these asymmetries being caught and corrected at this young age. No doubt this gal will go on to run uncompensated into college and beyond!
