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

Fuel

Make sure you’re eating clean food. Have a cheat day but if you’re serious and disciplined eat clean veggies and protein. Don’t worry about calories if you’re eating well. Have a cheat day tho live your life! Cut sugar and cut way back on alcohol. They both cause inflammation in the body which leads to all sorts of health concerns! You should be trying to drink a gallon of water a day which is a lot! But just breathing on a daily basis your body uses 2 liters of water.

Stress

Working out! The stress you’re putting on your body is only healthy because of the adaptation it causes. Like stressing your body on a long ride. Your body uses the calories to fuel you and it will adapt by changing muscle tissue and your metabolism because it thinks you’re gonna keep stressing yourself which you are.

Recovery is KEY.

Sleep is when your body recovers and heals and adapts so 7-9 nightly is imperative!! Don’t take that lightly!

Keep it Simple!
