Functional Training incorporates core strength and mobility. Instead of isolating one muscle group (Example - bicep curl), Functional Training incorporates the entire body moving through several plans. (Example - woodchop). The benefits of this style of working out include:
*Increases the ease of everyday life
*Increases your strength and endurance
*Time efficient workout - burns calories and builds muscle
*Increases flexibility, balance and coordination
*Helps to reduce risk of injury.
So whether you are marathon runner, weight lifter, teenager, mom or grandpa try to add some functional exercises into your weekly workouts.
