If organizing a movement screen to improve functional movement with athletes is something you have wanted to do, but never thought possible because of time constraints, it’s time to re-think your approach.

dynamic warm up routine
  • DWMA is a new movement screen strategy where an entire group or team’s functional movement gets determined at once.
  • The DWMA dynamic warm up routine bypasses the weakened efficiency of a one-on-one athlete movement screen.
  • DWMA allows you to establish movement screening for athletes and movement assessment with a high rate of frequency without sacrificing time training.
  • DWMA movement assessment guides exercise selection and direct what functional movements the athlete needs fixed before they proceed into more advanced exercises.

What Coaches Say About
DWMA Functional Movement System Courses

"Before, our athletes viewed their dynamic warm up routine as the 'crappy stuff' we have to do before we get to the 'fun stuff.' Now, the athletes understand the DWMA Functional Movement System as their 'performance prep' and appreciate its involvement. As a coach, the DWMA serves as an iteration or daily snap-shot for approximating an athlete's functional movement needs."
Gary Schofield
Emeritus Founder, NHSSCA
2012 NSCA High School Strength Coach of the Year
"I serve as the strength coach and athletic trainer, and the DWMA Functional Movement System has been awesome for us. With DWMA, we can record and see how our athletes are improving daily. DWMA corrective exercises directly target what the athlete needs. DWMA has been amazing with how quickly and easily it clears up our athlete's functional movement issues."
Jon Girton
Head Strength Coach
Lee High School
2014-18 NSCA Strength of America Award
"I have large classes and teams limit time and resources to incorporate a traditional movement screen effectively. Mike's DWMA program changed my mind. Not only is DWMA a dynamic warm-up routine, but also a functional movement system in how to use corrective exercises to address areas of concern for athletes. Functionality and application are critical to all of my workouts, and the DWMA works perfectly for our program as warm up before we exercise."
Ryan Johnson
Head Strength Coach

2017 NSCA High School Strength Coach of the Year
"We were doing FMS once a year, and it was hit or miss. The time to screen and re-screen was too involved. DWMA has been a game changer because I never considered making a dynamic warm up routine a movement screen. The DWMA Functional Movement System lets us know how the kids [athletes] are moving and how to pinpoint what corrective exercises they need to move better.
Mark Hoover
Head Strength Coach
York High School
"DWMA allows us to evaluate how well athletes are moving every day, which is always changing due to daily training loads and competition. Essentially, the DWMA lets us auto-regulate training based on how well the athlete is moving and performing. The best part is the DWMA Functional Movement System empowers the athlete to recognize how their limitation impacts their performance, which helps create immediate buy-in."

Physical Education Teacher of the Year
"DWMA Functional Movement System lets us asses our athlete every single day before training. Initially, we used FMS which was great individually, but once we tried to implement it onto a bigger scale with a team or group, it proved impossible because we were spending an entire day screening at the expense of training. Plus, pre and post movement screen time gaps limited the athlete and us with knowing what and if effective changes were occurring. DWMA changed all that for us and our athletes."
