Are you ready for a way to get fit, boost your performance and learn how to move and stay pain free?
A common functional move is a squat because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects. By training your muscles to work the way they do in everyday tasks, you prepare your body to perform well in a variety of common situations. When using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time you require more core stability. Through functional fitness training, you develop strength throughout your entire body.
Functional training rarely does single-joint movements and rarely uses motions focusing on equipment. This lets you focus on the the basic human movement patterns of
- Anti core movement patterns (stopping the body from twisting, bending, and crunching)
- Lose weight
- Increase performance
- Increase mobility
- Increase strength
- Increase endurance
- Can make everyday activities easier
- Help reduce your risk of injury
- Improve your quality of life
- Improve balance
- Muscle strength
- Reduce the risk of falls
Q: What is Functional training?
A: Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work, or in sport. Exercise use various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time.
Q: Is functional fitness only weird stability exercises on bosu and stability balls?
A: That is actually not functional fitness unless you get on a skateboard, surfboard, or where you have to balance on top of some object. Functional fitness actually should mimic daily tasks. For example, instead of doing crunches, twists, and side bends for your core. You would do isometric core exercises to counter-rotation, bending, and twisting. Functional training can even be something as simple as working on balance on one foot.
Q: Can I get in shape and even build muscle with functional fitness?
A: Absolutely, because true functional fitness involves olympic lifting, power lifts, plyometrics. squatting, hinging/deadlifting, lunging, carrying pushing, and pulling.
Q: What are the differences and similarities between functional training and CrossFit?
A: Functional training follows science principles with order selection of exercises, gradual structured progression, stricter form cues, includes more corrective exercises, and is a training session instead of a competition based workout. They both include functional exercises, and functional training can be done in an interval-style setting like CrossFit. CrossFit is constantly, varied functional movements, executed at a high intensity, and in a competition-based setting.
