Also known as Sport Performance Training, Functional Strength Training involves various methods of strength and conditioning which maximize an athlete’s performance. Traditional weight lifting, “Old School” exercises such as bodyweight exercises, Olympic and Strongman lifting, Outer, Inner, and Neuro-Muscular training methods, balance and off-centre exercises, reflex re-conditioning drills, are all included in good functional training.
Functional training goes way beyond the one-dimensional exercises familiar to most poeple. True athletic performance requires multiple planes of movement, while simultaneously engaging compound muscle groups. These multi-planar, compound movements are at the core of solid functional training.
