This is a program I wrote for a client several months ago. It has several of my favorites and go to exercises for both the beginner and intermediate to advanced individuals. So many people don’t know what personal trainers, massage therapists or physical therapists are talking about when we say people need to do functional exercises. This means simply moving your body in movement patterns that helps you do every day tasks without getting hurt. Simple tasks such as lifting a kid from the floor or up and twisting, picking up groceries and navigating up steps or around objects in the way on the way to the kitchen can present a challenge if there are body or muscle imbalances.
The video is only a demonstration of one program in the 2 set program design I did for this runner. I give these and similar exercises to many of my clients and they don’t even have to be athletes.
How well can you perform these? The video is less than 7 min. so give it a view. If you are going to make it a workout then go for 2-3 sets of midrange reps 10-15 reps.
