Functional training helps provide you with the strength, stability, and mobility you need to thrive in your life and sports.

You use basic functional movement patterns like pushing, pulling, hinging, squatting, rotating, carrying and gait patterns—walking and running—every day.

Regardless of your fitness goals, abilities, or limitations, functional training should be a part of your exercise routine.

Here are 5 functional exercises you need to master.

It is important you keep your belly button drawn to activate the core muscles so that the lower back can be supported.

And allow the movement to be performed from upper portion of the trunk, not the hips.

Perform each exercise for 8-12 repetitions and complete 3-4 sets in total and keep the tempo slow and controlled.
