They say exercise is a great way to ensure that when you’re in your golden years, you can still rely on your muscles to help with your daily functioning. It’s not just about fitness and good health, it’s also about the quality and longevity of life, which is why functional training is increasingly coming into focus, especially among the middle-aged.
It’s nothing but a set of exercises that simulate common, everyday movements to train your muscles to work together, and prepare them for daily tasks. Simply put, they enable you to do your chores, and indulge in daily sports and recreational activities effectively, even as you age. Besides that, they also give you a great burn and focus on core stability.
Squats, lunges, deadlifts, bicep curls and some simple step-ups with weights are examples of functional training exercises that you should master. After all, you want to be able to help yourself and go grocery shopping, lift your own bags, and even keep up with your grandchildren when the time comes, don’t you?
