Functional fitness training is freedom of movement training.
Functional fitness training is
movement training with resistance.
The resistance can be in one plane
two plane or three planes depending upon
which plane is loaded during which

movement can be a accelerated speed
movement or a decelerated slow movement
which require stabilization or balance.

fitness training helps you burn more
calories as most of the movements are
compound unsupported movements .Unsupported
movements result in engaging the kinetic
chain of muscles. More after burn in the
muscles=Increased cal requirement.
is safer form of resistance training as:
involved in functional fitness training are
natural every day movements which our body
is accustomed to, therefore there is inbuilt
muscle memory to these movements and also
the neuromuscular pattern is already inbuilt
for example you donít have to teach an
individual how to walk, push, lift, pull as
he is accustomed to these movements since
childhood. Therefore these movements are
functional fitness training movements
involve the core muscles and there are about
29 of them. Forced reps plays an important
role during weight training. Forced reps are
repetition of exercise movements after you
have reached point of failure. During forced
reps you can continue the exercise safely as
there is freedom of movement which
allows the kinetic chain of muscles to help,
which also include the core muscles. For
example if you are doing a standing shoulder
press your forced reps would involve your
lower body and core to help you unlike
seated shoulder press which is a supported
movement. Functional fitness training
movements are unsupported core involved
fitness training plays an important role on
the central nervous system.
Most of the
exercises done on the machines like the
rear- pec fly, leg press, smith machine,
lying leg curl, preacher curl, seated chest
press have a fixed ROM (range of movement).
Due to which most of the exercises can be
done eyes shut which means without
concentration, focus ,alertness which also
includes the most commonly used cardio
equipment the treadmill.
Most of the
functional fitness movements are movements
with resistance on one, two or three planes
where the entire body works as one unit.
These movement forms different movement
patterns which require a lot of
co-ordination, balance, and focus. Therefore
more mind body connect.
That is why
functional fitness training involves a lot
of balance and co-ordination drills on foam
rollers, wobble boards and fit 2 function
