The Benefits Of Functional Training
A functional fitness routine is one that prepares your body for the everyday physical stresses of life. Your specific weekly routine may include picking up a bag of dog food at the store, helping a buddy move, meeting up with friends for a game of ball, or loading and unloading groceries. All of these seemingly simple tasks hold the risk of injury. By adopting a functional training routine or adding these exercises into your existing workout, you reduce the risk of injury and benefit in the following ways:
- Improve Overall Strength
- Improve Balance
- Increase Coordination
- Increase Endurance And Agility
- Prevent Back Injury
- Increase Flexibility
- Improve Posture
- Reduce Joint Pain
A Stronger Core For A More Care-Free Life
Functional exercises are often done standing and incorporating multiple joints. By strengthening your deep abdominals, hip abductors and rotators, and the scapula, you add a strong base to more specific, localized movements. This gives you more balance and coordination and over time improves your muscle memory. So, when you need your muscles to work quickly and move in a safe, effective way while performing real world tasks, your body is more than ready to step up to the plate. Some specific functional weight training exercises your trainer might suggest include:
- Kettlebell Swings
- Power Clean
- Squat Jump
- Overhead Press
- Chin Ups
- Push Ups
Targeted Movements For On The Job
Personalized core stabilization can make sitting at that desk for hours, stocking those shelves, or loading that truck much easier. Maybe you’re just looking for a boost in overall everyday athletic performance. By working with a Sparta Academy trainer, you can develop a fitness routine that mimics movements you perform over and over each day. We will design individualized weight, resistance, and body weight exercises that strengthen your core, improve your posture, relieve bothersome aches, and optimize your range in a safe, strong, pain-free way.
