Yea, I hear the term all the time too! “Functional training”, heck, even my clients come in now asking me when are we going to work on their functional training. Unfortunately, it is a term they heard and don’t know anything about! I don’t blame them.

I was SUPER confused for a long time too. I mean, Olympic lifts were called functional. Kettlebells…functional, medicine balls…functional, crossfit…functional, powerlifting…functional, gymnastics…functional. It might have been easier to identify what wasn’t considered functional, but at the end of the day I still didn’t know how we develop functional training.

That is until I really looked at what my clients needed to be able to do in their daily lives. I’ll admit it, I don’t have anyone that will be suiting up for Sundays, or getting ready for Rio in the Olympics, but I have the trust and pleasure of working with people that really want to change their lives for the better! I take that seriously so let’s look at what functional training will mean for most of you.

The first goal of functional training should get you to perform the foundational ways to move, better. That would be squatting, lunging, pressing, pulling, rotating, and hip hinging. You see that is the start! You might hear a lot of other programs say something similar, but I’ll tell you why I was so drawn to DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training.

Tony is the Manager of Mia’s Tex Mex Restaurant on Lemmon Avenue, which is legendary in
Dallas for their excellent food as well as their history. Go Cowboys!!

Just a day for Tony means running around the restaurant. Dodging service staff, customers, reaching, lifting, and doing anything to make the restaurant a success. That may not sound like Game 7, but Tony puts his body through a lot and making him move better means not only does he not get hurt and miss work, but also allows him to come home after work and be able to actually do things with his family!

Functional training should also make you strong, well duh! No, I mean strong in all sorts of ways. Stressing the body in ways we would actually see in every day life. Tony almost never puts something on his back and goes around the restaurant. However, he may have something over his head, his shoulder, his hip, and often a combination of all these things. So, we have to get our people use to the stresses real life throws out at them. It isn’t try to copy his work, but rather PREPARE him for it!

Best of all, we can do all this with Tony’s super crunched schedule. It doesn’t take long to get really fit, but it does require planning, progression, and purpose! Right now we are building a lot of these qualities with Tony with the Power and Core Ultimate Sandbag. Push yourself to your own limits though.
