"What is functional
Functional training involves exercises that utilizes motions in multiple planes, similar to motions used in sports, at work and in activities of daily living. Other exercises, for example, using machines at a gym, often use motion patterns in only one plane.
Functional training frequently implements medicine balls, stability balls, resistance bands and one's own body weight as the sources of resistance. This type of training can be used alone or in combination with traditional resistance training.
