The purpose of this study was to examine the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) scores in a group of recreational middle-distance runners and determine whether a 4-week specific training intervention improved the initial FMS scores. A pre- post- intervention test was conducted. This study showed how 4 weeks of additional specific training can improve FMS scores and motor control in recreational runners. The present FMS scores and training intervention can be used as reference for strength and conditioning specialists to address identified musculoskeletal imbalances which may predispose an athlete to injury.
