What is functional training?
Functional training is not a new training method and has existed for sometime. Functional training methods are used in a variety of ways such as rehabilitation from injuries or surgeries through to occupational therapy and return to work strategies. Functional training quite simply is utilising everyday movement patterns and placing them into an exercise format.
So what movements are functional?
Functional movement patterns include; squat, lunge, press, pull, twist, bend and gait (walking/running). All of these movements translate into patterns we undertake everyday in activities of daily living (ADL’s). It is important that as individuals we perform these functional movement patterns fluently to lessen the likelihood of sustaining injury. Applying these movement patterns into an exercise program and placing the movements under loading creates and promotes strengthening of the muscles, bones and joints. This offers stabilisation and better joint range of motion. Regardless of your current fitness level, age or health conditions functional training is very beneficial and it is never to late to commence.
