Build Your Own Functional Movement Screen FMS Kit

Recently built my own Functional Movement Screen kit after looking at buying a kit and feeling the cost was too high for its’ simplicity – plus I’ve seen the plastic version break a few times. Thought I’d share my plans for building the FMS kit:

Step 1. Get a 48″ dowel and 48 inch 2×6 piece of wood

 

Step 2. Mark of the entire dowel in inches.  Starting 12 inches from one end of the 2×6 mark off every inch (0-36). Be sure to write numbers down both the dowel and the 2×6 for easy measurement during FMS kit testing.

Step 3. Stand the wood up on its side. Use a drill to drill two holes ~2″ deep. I highly recommend using drill press to ensure the holes are vertical.

Step 4. Place 3/8″ dowel into the holes. Take theraband or rope/string to make the hurdle.

Step 6. Use velcro to hold everything together for easy carriage during traveling and better storage when not in use.
