FUNCTIONAL TRAINING

FUNCTIONAL TRAINING

In the arena of physical fitness, functional training usually refers to simple exercises that burn fat and tone muscles. This training is usually performed using fitness balls, strength bands, and free weights.

Plyometrics are quick, powerful exercises designed to engage muscles and also are used in training for functional purposes. In sports, functional training may lead to better muscular balance and joint stability, possibly decreasing the number of injuries sustained in an individual’s performance in a sport.
