What are Functional Moves?

Gilad:

I have heard you mention 'functional moves' during some of your exercise routines.  What are 'functional moves'?


Answer:

'Functional moves' are exercises that involve several muscle groups moving synergistically to perform a task.  For example, in everyday life, moves like picking up a bag of groceries and putting it on the counter or stowing your luggage in the overhead bin are functional moves because they involve several key muscle groups to accomplish. 

This type of exercise is great because it teaches you how to perform strength and toning moves while your heart is in an 'aerobic state'.  And that will cause you to burn more calories over the course of your exercise routine.
Most importantly it is good practice and preparation for all types of sports activities.
