The Purpose of Functional Training

I see this all the time in the gym. Trainers thinking up ridiculous exercises to profit off the uneducated in the fitness field.

I can assure you nothing in your life will be improved by balancing on an object while lifting weights. How is this going to benefit you?

What will benefit you is training your body and muscles to improve your everyday life!

Benefits of Kettlebells and Sandbagso

Benefits of Kettlebell and Sandbag training.

As a firm believer in functional training and strengthening your body for everyday life and injury prevention, nothing does this better than the kettlebell or sandbag.

Aside from just being fun to train with these tools benefit your training in ways the simple iron won’t.

Both of these tools build grip strength. You have to be able to hold both tools while performing the dynamic exercises.

They train your bodies 3 planes of motion. The sagittal, frontal, and transverse. Isolated reps with barbells and dumbbells don’t.

Since the moves are mostly dynamic (kettlebell swings, clean and press) these tools combine cardio and strength training which means your workouts are also more efficient.

You’ll lose more fat since you’re building muscle and burning calories with cardio combined.

Most exercises consist of whole body movements so workouts don’t take as long.

Lastly sandbags and kettlebells are just fun to train with

Women shouldn’t lift weights! MYTH

I hear it all the time. I recently did a consult with a woman who said she didn’t do squats because she was petite and didn’t want to get “all big”

It’s HARD gaining muscle and getting big. It’s not even about what you lift or how often or how heavy but what you eat. Not only do you have to put the constant work in at the gym with the weights, you have to eat. And eat and eat and eat and eat. And it’s all gotta be protein. Then more protein and protein shakes and eggs and steak and chicken and fish and chicken and fish …etc.

Plus women lack the testosterone flowing through their bodies in the levels men do to help facilitate gaining all that muscle.

Basically women who lift regularly just get tight and fit and ripped and thin and strong.

So women grab the iron and start lifting those weights. It’ll boost your metabolism for longer periods than boring old cardio, it’ll strengthen your bones and basically make you bad ass!
