A new approach to training, focusing on improving one or more interconnected body functions.
Involves performing specially prepared exercise according to specific algorithms, not on movement isolation or through concentration on one muscle group.
A specific function of the body is to be improved, therefore it is necessary to work through a holistic approach. By training this way, we can improve individual movement parameters such as strength, speed, endurance, coordination and mobility.
In functional training the most frequently used exercises are multi-joint exercises. In some cases, however, it is necessary to first improve smaller sections of the body in order to achieve the desired result.
Undoubtedly, the advantage of functional training is that we can achieve a significant improvement not only in strength and endurance, but also in overall functional performance, which is necessary in everyday life or when practicing a specific sports discipline.
