Usually I go to the “functional” area for my warm-up and he goes right into the weight area for a chest and arms, or legs and back, or shoulders and ears workout. But this time, as I went to warm-up he said he would come stretch too. I tried really hard not to stop in my tracks from the shock. Great! We Vainos are not what you’d call a flexible bunch, which in my opinion means it is really important for us to do a proper warm-up.
Functional training is an often misunderstood concept. I have heard people say that functional training is training with a Bosu and stability balls. Not exactly. Functional training is literally training for function. It means that we train movements instead of muscles.
