What is Functional Training?
In contrast to weight training machines that isolate specific muscles producing non-natural movement patterns, Functional Training integrates the interaction of associated muscle slings and joints used in sports and daily activities. Furthermore, Functional Training is fun and challenging due to the variety of weight bearing exercises and the use of equipment. Functional exercises are as complex as sports specific movement patterns and daily activities as they target full motion sequences, rather than single isolated muscles. This kind of training includes using stable and unstable bases or resistance to increase and maintain stability during given movement tasks. Focusing on natural movement patterns, Functional Training is a significant part of high-performance sports, as well as rehabilitation, using varied intensity.
