Functional training is preferred by many because it allows natural movement during your exercise program. You can mimic regular tasks or everyday situations during your exercise program. To build strength and endurance using natural movement allows you to adapt your exercises specifically to your sport or your everyday activities.
As Fabio Martella says. “Functional training is the utilization of exercises which involve complex, multi-joint movements of the upper body, core and lower body. These movements enable greater overall bodily functioning and performance enhancement through improved coordination and the proper stimulation of muscular firing patterns.
This can lead to better muscular balance and joint stability, decreasing the possibility of injuries. If you are an athlete wanting to improve your performance or a parent that wants to safely carry their children, functional training is designed to assist you.
Exercise devices that do not employ functional training, such as fixed training equipment that you may see in your local gym, restrict movements to a single plane of motion. This is can be simulation of unnatural forms of movement. Functional training builds strength and endurance using natural body movement.
