Do they have awareness when lowering themselves to the ground? It can tell you a lot about the habits and daily behaviors of a client. Do they sit or lie down for extended periods of time or do they move around and test the limits of their flexibility, strength on a frequent basis. We noticed a very captivating thing today after assessing a client. He presented with scapular instability and pain in various upper body pulling patterns. Yet his low body was highly functioning, relative to his upper body. His upper body pushing was also relatively developed as well. Strength imbalances are annoying at best and can limit functionality at worse. If you are a fitness professional and are not assessing your clients and do not have a model for addressing your findings, you are doing your clients a disservice and may even be harming them. As a fitness professional it is our job, to help guide and provide the necessary tools for our clients. Does what you offer align with giving the most value to your clients?
