It’s not just a buzz word and while it can sometimes look buzzy or complicated it is purposeful.
Functional exercises transcend into real life, they mimic everyday movement patterns to help you move better and prevent injury.
Example? Turning to pick something heavy up behind you. Either you will injure yourself or you won’t and often the difference is having built muscle to protect yourself and knowing how to move well.
The keys are
– Hinge (deadlift or the likes)
– Push (up)
– Pull (up)
– Twist (rotational movements)
You can get fancy and have fun with it as you progress.
