Functional Strength…for Building the BEST Body

Posted: April 18, 2014

Functional Strength is what you need for building the BEST body. We no longer only train by means of separating body parts, or going from upper to lower. Sure those workouts are good on some days, but who has the time to leave out a body part regularly? Besides, when you can use functional strength training to build the best body, why would you waste time on other methods.

Let’s get one thing straight. Functional strength utilizes all of your muscles. From the front to the back, the pushing and the pulling, the upper and the lower…you hit them all. Let us not forget the core, the stabilizers the antagonistic muscles and the cardiovascular system. What? The cardiovascular system? Yep. When you train the entire body as in with Kettlebell training, sandbags, explosive moves and exercises like these, you create an efficient machine. So why sit on one when working out?

Machines are good for a few things. Lat pulldowns and seated cable rows are my favorite. Cable crossovers for chest are also good, and you have to keep your entire body tight to maintain form so the core is engaged. However, if you want to really FEEL what an all out full body workout feels like with one tool, then grab a heavy kettlebell. Go from swings to deadllifts to rows to goblet squats. What you will get is stronger, leaner, more cardio efficient and more powerful. Instead of using a machine, you create one. YOU!

Most people that are trying to build the best body are concerned with the same things. Bigger muscles, and less fat. Most athletes are trying to get the same goals as well, being faster, stronger, having more endurance and more power. Both of these are created with functional strength.

Functional strength is for building the BEST body. Between lifting, pulling, pushing, dragging, twisting, jumping, carrying, bending, squatting, reaching, and throwing you will create all the things you are looking for when “shopping” for the best workout.
