Introduction: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks functional training based on functional impairments on the scores of 9+ test in active men
Methodology: The current research design was a randomized field trial. For this purpose, 30 active men with movement impairments whose 9+ test scores measured with FMS kit were less than 14 were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria Then 9+ tests were measured from them and then they were randomly divided into two equal experimental (15 people) and control (15 people) groups. The experimental group performed functional exercises based on functional defects for 8 weeks (3 sessions per week and each session lasting 40 minutes) and during this period, the control group continued their normal activities. After 8 weeks of functional exercises, an 9+ test was taken from the subjects as a pre-test. Paired t-test was used to evaluate the results within the group and analysis of covariance was used to evaluate the results between groups at a significance level of 0.05 in SPSS version 22.
Results: The results of paired t-test showed that in all 9+ tests, except the shoulder mobility test (p<0.05), a significant difference was observed in the post-test compared to the pre-test only in the experimental group. (P <0.05) in the post-test compared to the pre-test only. Also, the results of analysis of covariance showed that there was in all variables, except the shoulder mobility test (p=0.22), there was a significant difference between the two groups (p<0.05). So that the scores of all variables in the experimental group improved compared to the control group
Conclusion: Based on the obtained results. we conclude that performing 8 weeks of functional exercises can probably lead to improving functional movement pattern and improving the movement impairments of active men, and these athletes and coaches can use these exercises to reduce movement impairments.
