Functional Training

Functional Training


 Functional training is actually the opposite of exercise on isolated machines. It comes from the rehabilitation and use it, parents playing with children, as well as eliteathletes in their training. Functional training involves mainly the use of one's body asthe most natural

 booster machine that you have available. It teaches the body to use its own potential,which was given to him from birth. Are you training variable anywhere (fit area, playground, hall, park), and no classic gym machines, with only your own body weight.Park will become your gym and your body barbell.


    Functional training combines the benefits of several types of exercises in one piece so as to achieve the best results. It is especially unique in that it involved theexercise is the maximum number of muscle groups and train links throughout themovement. Unlike isolated unilaterally led movements that do not have suchimportance for every individual except bodybuildingových enthusiasts. It is thiscomplexity is functional training differs from other types of workouts.

       Naturally improves the functionality of the musculoskeletal system, overall fitness, effectively reduces weight, shaping character, minimizes the risk of injury, is the ideal prevention of back pain, improve motor skills and physical
It strengthens the stereotype of correct posture.
      Exercise comes of rehabilitation, during which the applied sets of exercisesimitating the movements of everyday life, it was affirmation of his own motion,increased performance and suppressing the negative effects of unilateral load.Today, functional training is also used in sports and basic functional
training us enough of our own body weight. For advanced, effective and fun exercisecan involve a variety of exercise equipment that will move us further.
For example:

  • TRX
  • Flowin
  • BOSU
  • Kettlebels
  • Powerbags
  • Medicinballs
  • CoreBoards
  • Teddy Bear Picnic
  • Runbiking


Unlike classical training:
      As a classical training, we could imagine sitting exercise, ie exercise the traditional solid machine with an isolated range of motion (often only in one plane)without the involvement of stabilizing musculature. Isolated exercises practicedunfortunately only muscle group, but not movement as such.
      Most activities in human life on the other hand contains a wide range of motion.Performance runner would certainly nevystačil isolated leg extension machine tocreate ... and burial movement patterns on the machines is impossible ... Basic squattype exercises are already one step further. When you try squats on an unstablesurface, we are suddenly exposed to very different stimuli.

It is another example of the practice:
      When engaging in the targeted training such as bags of sand, the whole bodymust quickly adapt to new conditions, working with a new focus of gravity,somewhere to add or remove muscle tension, etc.. Like mentioned balancing area.The more incentives the body gets, the more answers must be done ...
      The application of functional exercises we can use our weight in addition to theone-dumbbell, kettlebell, free rollers (and constant load), big balls, small balls,overball, medicine ball, exercise rubber bands, expanders, balance boards and platforms, with sand bags and today news as increasingly attractive TRX, Bosu,Flowin etc.

      Why is it so important functional training? Action and reaction do not participate in only the muscles you would without the assistance of neuro-muscular system, not knowing what to do. The main director of the CNS (central nervous system), wherethe brain and spinal cord responsible for all the muscle work. CNS perceives

each activity as a whole, not as a sum of isolated activities of individual muscles.Therefore, the functional exercise so beneficial and important! In addition to train themuscles that control the specific features that must find a way to perform exercises in difficult conditions, and while we take care of our entire articular apparatus. Thetherapy reinforce the ligaments and stabilize joints.

Functional training is effective, challenging and fun. It shows a whole new perspective on exercise, or you can just zakombinovat into your workout.
