I love functional fitness workouts.
What is functional fitness you might be asking?
Functional exercises are moves which aim to allow for the body to adapt to daily activities with proper form to prevent injuries while building strength, improving strength and coordination.
Even if you think that utilising workouts designed to enhance functional strength and agility are not going to help you reach your goals, you might want to re-think it. According to the American Chiropractic Association, low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide and is also the number one reason for calling out of work as well as the second reason for doctors visits.
One of the best ways to prevent back (and shoulder and neck) pain is to engage and strengthen the muscles throughout the body. And one of the best ways to work on building stamina and flexibility is to engage in workouts that use functional exercises to ensure that even those of us who sit at a desk for most of the day can do so with proper posture.
As you continue to read this blog, you will discover that I am a massive fan of boot camp and circuit training styles of workouts. Even as a fitness professional, I like to get through my workouts and put them behind me so that I can move on with my day. Boot camp workouts are a great way to keep things fresh, exciting and challenging all while getting in a fabulous workout without spending hours on a machine or at the gym in general.
Give this functional workout a try the next time you’re at the gym or want to fit in a quick and effective workout on your home treadmill. I have even done this workout at the park using wrist weights.Short on time for your workout? Try this 30-minute functional boot camp workout! #HIIT #Fitness #Coach Click To Tweet
