Who doesn’t love a good bicep curl or bench press, am I right? But let’s think about this…in the real world, unless something heavy falls on you or you have to pull something heavy to you, exercises like these don’t really serve a purpose.

Here’s the thing, I love it all – bicep curls, bench pressing, Olympic lifting, traditional bodybuilding, there’s a place for everything.

However, as a coach, it’s most important to me that my clients develop functional strength, which is defined as the strength that allows us to efficiently and safely get through day to day life.

Even though the days of manual labor for most everyone have come to an end, and many humans spend the majority of their days on a computer, functional strength is still important. Humans should be able to walk, run, push, pull, and grip. You should be able to do all of these things without pain, tightness, and restriction. But that’s easier said than done in the seated lifestyle we’ve created.

There’s just not a lot of day to day demand on our bodies to keep them healthy and capable of doing the above, so we have to create that demand for ourselves by sticking to an exercise program, having recreational hobbies that involve movement, and by simply being conscious of how much we move day today.

And another thing is that the necessary levels of function vary from person to person. An athlete requires a different level of functional strength than a grandmother who wants to stay out of pain and keep her bones strong. One of the best ways to determine how to attain the level of function that is best for you is by working with an educated and experienced fitness professional who can design a program to help you get there.

And that happens to be our specialty here at Sculptor Body Fitness, so let us know how we can help you get functional!

One final note, I’ve seen so many people neglect functionality when they were younger only to pay for it in the future. It’s never too early or too late to start your functional strength program. And when you’re ready, we’re here to help! Just comment below to let us know, and we’ll get back in touch to schedule a time to speak ASAP.
