hmmm if you could go down in proper FMS squat form with the 2×4 under your heels, you should have scored a 2. here is the scoring criteria: http://graycookmovement.com/downloads/FMS%20Scoring%20Criteria.pdf
for the tests with left and right sides, any differences in scores between the left and right sides, or same score on both sides? by any chance did you video your test? going back and checking for details is always nice with video.
if you want to know more about the basic movements, see: http://www.functionalmovement.com/store/secrets_of_primitive_patterns. watch the video trailer on that page also. there are a number of people doing this now for exercise and also rehab. MovNat is another big one for exercise, and there are guys in Europe doing something interesting rehab work at the Prague School: http://www.rehabps.com/REHABILITATION/Home.html.
