Why Functional Strength & Conditioning?
A functional strength and conditioning workout generally
incorporates some exercises that involve compound
movements which activate several muscles at once. This
demands a coordinated effort from muscles and joints to
provide the desired functional movement. Additionally,
incorporating more muscles at once increases the oxygen
demand and therefore requires more from your cardiovascular
There is a direct transfer from a functional strength and conditioning workout approach to what you do outside of the gym. The benefit of this approach is that consistent training prepares you for daily life as well as any athletic pursuits.
