Unconventional And Simple Strength Moves For Function

Unconventional And Simple Strength Moves For Function

So I pulled today’s article from the archives and the original publishing date was back on October 27, 2016.

In today’s world the need for mobility and functional fitness is greater than ever. After coaching for almost 20 years I’m constantly finding myself helping people with movement dysfunction. Correcting movement dysfunction is something that takes commitment, but it is something that can be easily fixed if you just demonstrate a little commitment and creativity.

In today’s article my goal is to help you out in both of these categories. Make sure you read this and apply.

  1. Do you implement strength moves that are a bit unconventional and go against the status quo? 
  2. Does your strength program help to improve your overall physical function? 
  3. Do you like incorporating different strength moves to help challenge you in different ways? 

The key to a quality strength program is being able to utilize what tools and strength moves you have at your disposal to get the job done. This can range from equipment to knowledge, but regardless of the tools the principles of acquiring an optimal level of strength and mobility should be based on incorporating movements to benefit your body’s overall function. After all, form always follows function. Now buckle your chinstrap and get to work with these unique strength moves to elevate your functional fitness.

Are You Applying The Irradiation Principle For Optimal Strength Gains?

  1. When you’re performing your lifts are you properly firing the muscles involved so you obtain optimal gains?
  2. Are you lifting and performing movements to train your body to be stronger and more resistant to injury?
  3. When performing a movement are you establishing complete control over that movement for optimal function? 

I always I like to try to leave an impression on new trainees when it comes to teaching them strength. One thing that I’ve found that surprises people and raises a few eyebrows is when I talk about the irradiation principle.

Just How Powerful Is Sprinting For Your Fitness Program?

  1. Are you looking to either incorporate sprinting into your training for the first time in a while, or are you considering including more sprint work in general?

  4. Are you interested in building a more lean and stronger athletic physique?
  5. Are you looking to enhance your ability to function and recover faster in the weight room? 

Trust me sprinting is one simple, cheap, and effective way to optimize your body’s fitness unlike any other form of conditioning. In fact, if you look at the 7 foundational movements consisting of the push, pull, squat, lunge, twist, bend, and gait…your gait is one of those movements and sprinting is essential for optimizing your gait. This will make you more optimally functional from head to toe.
