ABSTRACT RECENT TRENDS IN WHOLE-BODY MOVEMENT EXERCISE HAVE LEFT MANY CLINICIANS DEVOID OF DYNAMIC MOVEMENT PROGRESSIONS FOR WARM-UP OR WORKOUT PROGRAMS WITH CLIENTS. SUCH DEFICITS CAN HINDER PERFORMANCE GAINS AND QUALITY OF MOVEMENT IN THESE POPULATIONS. THE CORE MOBILITY SERIES (CMS) IS A SEQUENTIAL MATRIX OF MOVEMENT PATTERNS THAT STARTS IN A STANDING POSITION, TRANSITIONS TO THE GROUND, AND BACK TO STANDING, MIMICKING SPORT SKILLS THROUGH MULTIPLE PLANES AND RANGES OF MOTION. MOREOVER, THE CMS DOES NOT REQUIRE THE USE OF EQUIPMENT AND CAN BE USED WITH ANY LEVEL OF CLIENT OR ATHLETE FOR DYNAMIC SKILL IMPROVEMENT OR PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT PURPOSES.
