❓WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL BODYBUILDING❓
Updated: Feb 15, 2021
As always this is an abbreviated explanation but, simply put, it's the thoughtful combination of Functional Training and Bodybuilding Style training.
🔱 FUNCTIONAL TRAINING - Focus is on PERFORMANCE. Preparing you for your “Function.” For some that's just everyday movements like picking things up off the ground, throwing the kids around, or moving furniture. For others it's their sport - Crossfit, Basketball, Soccer, Golfing, etc. This style of training gets all your muscles to work together at the same time - Lots and lots of compound movements. “...using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability.” - Mayoclinic
💪🏼 BODYBUILDING - Focus is on AESTHETIC. This style of training focuses on developing muscle fibers to make muscles grow in strength and size. Bodybuilding style training utilizes some compound exercises, a ton of Isolation exercises, and rest to achieve this goal. Always chasing the most and the best muscle contractions.
Both styles are awesome and have a ton of benefits and depending on your goals, your training will include varying percentages of both styles of training!
For most people, we want to look better, feel better, and improve health so that's going to be a pretty even split. A healthy mix of quality muscle contractions and crossfit style metcons that raise your heart rate and get you sweaty without pushing your body into the red zone every day.
I believe this is the best way to pursue the goal of looking sexy and feeling fantastic. Let's get after it.
