Whiteboard Talks: Understanding the ASLR
Are you caught in the trap of making assumptions about how people move? If someone cannot complete an active straight-leg raise (ASLR) functionally, it has to be the hamstrings fault, right?
Many people who cannot touch their toes or cannot complete the ASLR do not have a structural limitation. But we get caught in the illusion that they do based on their feedback of “tightness” and our assumption it is a hardware problem. The FMS provides an honest feedback loop.
In this Whiteboard Talk, FMS Co-Founder Gray Cook uses the ASLR to demonstrate the importance of screening, not assuming, so you can be effective in making long lasting changes to movement.
