What is Functional Training? Within each individual’s lives unique unexpected barriers are bound to occur. Those barriers can range from something as small as getting out of a chair or something more drastic like taking an unexpected fall. Preparing for those instances should be a part of everyone’s fitness program. This will help prepare the body to handle those situations with less of a chance of injury. We have the ability to perform a variety of movements including walking, jogging, sprinting, lifting, pushing, pulling, jumping, twisting etc. and all of them require different muscles to help with that particular movement. In functional training it is as important to train that particular movement, as it is to train the muscles involved in that movement. For example, an individual that executes a squat will have a greater effect on improving your ability to rise up out of a chair more so than an individual practicing a knee extension would. Your brain thinks in terms of whole motions, rather than individual muscles, and while doing a knee extension you are still working the muscles of the quadriceps, but you not working on that particular movement. Therefore, the squat is going to prepare and strengthen the necessary muscles throughout the entire movement of rising up out of a chair better than a leg extension would. This makes a squat one of the most functional movements that you can do. It is important for everyone to learn the movements that they use most in their lives so that you may design exercises like the squat that are going to make you stronger and more efficient each and every day.
