- Screens vs. Evaluations.
- Medical clearance vs. exercise “preparedness”.
- Putting the cart before the horse – don’t use exercise as your assessment.
- Evaluation – Yielding diagnosis – specific answer to a specific question
- Screen – General answer to general question: Does this person have the mobility and stability to do the exercises we’re going to do?
- Keep it simple – Pass or fail. Don’t freeze frame the movement.
- Paralysis of analysis. Dissecting muscles vs. screening movements - Take the big picture view.
- Don’t let the fleas argue over who owns the dog!
- Getting your feet wet – Only way to learn movement is to watch movement.
- Looking at the whole and working backwards to the parts.
- Screen movements are screen movements – not loaded exercise movements.
- Investing time in exercise techniques only vs. learning screens and assessments – like the difference between being a drug rep and a physician. Become a “physician” of fitness.
