I am super excited to announce that Eric Cressey and I’s latest product, Functional Stability Training for the Lower Body, is now available! Last year, we released the first module in our Functional Stability Training system, FST for the Core, which was hugely popular. Since then, Eric and I get weekly, almost daily, emails asking when more FST products were going to become available. Well, FST for the Lower Body is finally here!
Functional Stability Training for the Lower Body
FST for the Lower Body is a comprehensive program that combines the way I approach my rehabilitation programs with how Eric approaches his strength and performance programs. We talk about a ton of topics that merge our philosophies.
Functional Stability Training for the Lower Body takes a hard look at the lower extremity and how to most effectively optimize function. By addressing alignment, strength, mobility, and dynamic motor control, you can maximize your rehabilitation and training programs to reach optimal performance.
The lower extremities work in conjunction with the core to provide mobility, strength, and power to the entire body. Any deficits throughout the lower body’s kinetic chain can lead to injury, dysfunction, and a decrease in performance. FST for the Lower Body aims to help formulate rehabilitation and training programs designed to optimize how the lower body functions.
The FST for the Lower Body program can be applied to rehabilitation, injury prevention, and performance enhancement programs.
For the rehabilitation specialist, the information will help you restore functional activities faster. For the fitness and performance specialists, the information will help you achieve new progress with your clients to maximize functional and athletic potential. For the fitness enthusiast, the information will help you gain control of your lower body, maximize functional movement, and reduce wear and tear due to faulty movement patterns.
Here is the outline of presentations and lab demonstrations in the program:
- Training the Hip for FST for the Lower Body
- Assessing Lower Body Alignment and Movement
- Preparing the Adductors for Health and Performance
- Hip Internal Rotation Deficits: Why You Have Them and What to Do About Them

I honestly feel the FST for the Lower Body may be our best product yet, so if you have seen FST for the Core or Optimal Shoulder Performance, you are definitely going to want to go through the FST for the Lower Body program as well.
