Functional Resistance Training
Training to improve functional strength involves more than simply increasing the force-producing capability of a muscle or group of muscles. Rather, it requires training to enhance the coordinated working relationship between the nervous and muscular systems. Functional strength training involves performing work against resistance in such a manner that the improvements in strength directly enhance the performance of movements so that your activities of daily living are easier to perform.
- Enhance Performance
- Improve Strength
- Restore Proper Muscle Balance
- Improve Range of Motion
Simply stated, the primary goal of functional training is to transfer the improvements in strength achieved in one movement to enhancing the performance of another movement by affecting the entire neuromuscular system.
