FUNCTIONAL TRAINING

Classical forms of training in the gym more and more becoming extinct, unless you are bodybuilder, preference is given various combinations of cardio, circular, functional training … Today we explore the concept of functional training and give some examples of exercises and way of performing.

The roots of functional training come from the application of rehabilitation. Therapists use this form of rehabilitation to restore the regularity of certain movements in patients, the name functional is because they were used to install the proper and independent movement that before was irregular in the midst of an injury or surgery. They were movements that were used in everyday life, movements that have a function in everyday activities. So in sport we doing some part of exercise and movements which are typical for a particular action that is constantly practiced in a particular sport or physical activity.

The benefits of functional training is better joint mobility and stability of the whole body. Improving these factors reduce the possibility of misconduct. Although the machines at the gym seem safer, they actually limit the degree of movement and thus do not involve stabilize muscle of movement, but only a certain muscle that is rightly triggered. As a result, it takes a lot of time to strengthen all the muscles, which is not the case with functional exercises where they require a lot of different and large muscle groups.

Basics of functional training. Choose a couple of exercises from 2 to 8, it represents a one circle in training. Training should have from 2 to 4 laps. The exercises are performed with the shortest breaks, and between parts of the training is pause of 2 to 6 minutes. Pause can be active, skipping rope, running or something else. The number of repetitions of exercises can be fixed and may be limited in time, Ex. 4 exercise, each running 30 seconds submaximal intensity followed by a break of 4 minutes and moving into a new round. In essence, combine themselves but by following these guidelines.

Examples of exercises

PLYOMETRIC PULLUP PUSHUP

CLEAN AND PRESS

JUMPING SQUAT ON STEPPER

DECK SQUAT

Very important thing is to determine the intensity of training to withstand the whole session and not interrupted in half because you increase the intensity from the beginning. Also, pulse and control over the belt and hours or simply checking on artery on the neck, should be frequent during breaks. Functional training requires high endurance and strength, it also features the upgraded and improved.

Equipment used in functional training may be different, but I can run and exercise without apparatus. About them we have been already discussed in this Text: TOP 5 PROPS FOR FUNCTIONAL TRAINING

MUSCLE CRAMPS

Severe pain in the muscles, a sudden and painful muscle contractions or cramps, you certainly had the opportunity to feel, a very unpleasant phenomenon that does not last long but may have an effect. The causes of this phenomenon, the symptoms, how it manifests it self and prevention clarify we will explain the following text.

athlete-with-muscle-cramp

Causes of muscle cramps is:

  1. lack of water or dehydration
  2. lack of electrolytes
  3. muscle fatigue in the long march, intensive training or downtime
  4. weak circulation and bloodstream
  5. lack of potassium, magnesium, calcium …
  6. certain drugs 
  7. excess alcohol and caffeine
  8. deficiency disease 

As for the athletes, cramps is begin in endurance training, where efforts are being made to that body is not normally used to. Hypertonic muscle cramps is a state of chronic, excessive muscle tone, tension in the muscles – contraction when a muscle is inactive.

Recovery:

  1. Try to massage or rub Areas of spasm. This can help to relax muscles and increase blood flow
  2. Use the muscle gently, walking or gentle stretching, no sudden movements
  3. You can put a cold compress
  4. Take the fluids, because the water contains vital minerals electrolytes that can help muscle contraction
  5. Controlling diet and intake nutrients: Magnesium relaxes your muscles, Sodium helps retain liquid and postpone dehydration, Calcium plays a role in muscle contraction, Potassium deficiency causes cramps, vitamin E improves blood circulation, Carbohydrate deficiency can exhaust the glycogen stores, which may cause muscle cramps.

Any over-exercise physical activities with inadequate food and inadequate recovery of the organism, manifested as a phenomenon that will slow your progress and achieving your goal. CRAMPS is one of the consequences and causes.

MUSCLE INFLAMMATION – CAUSES AND RECOVERY

Inflammation of the muscles (muscle soreness) is the result of intensive muscle training load at the start of training period or after a period of reduced work or brake. Acute inflammation of the muscles occurs at the end of the training, while the deferred inflammation develops day or two after training. Muscle inflammation, whether it is an infection of an individual muscle or muscle groups hoped, in fact arise when a particular muscle or muscle group formed by excess secretion of lactic acid.

Lactic acid is a product of metabolism, which occurs due to an insufficient supply of oxygen in muscle tissue. This phenomenon occurs due to strenuous exercise, since blood vessels through which oxygen delivery to muscle tissue, do not achieve to provide and transmit sufficient oxygen. In proportion, it is clear that the inflammation of the muscles stronger and more painful, if in them a greater presence of lactic acid and lactic acid secretion degree, directly depends on the pace of physical activity or exercise and whether the oxygen supply to the tissues is sufficient or not. When intense muscular effort, the pace of creation of lactic acid is much faster than the pace of removal and therefore its concentration in the blood rises.

Accelerating the elimination of lactate from the blood, created during exercise, would have positive effects in terms of faster recovery of the body. The concentration of lactate in the blood decreases rapidly during the recovery phase, if it continues with muscle exertion of lower intensity. Active recovery in the form of moderate physical activity more effectively speeds up the removal of lactate than passive recovery, due to the fact that the dispute is activated muscle fibers that metabolize lactate generated during exercise.

It should take into account the interval workout that can maintain low levels of lactate, to reduce muscle fatigue and increase the quantity of labor. Warming up before and stretching after training are still one of the recommendations. Also, a moderate walk, resulting in the elimination of inflammation, will help and adequate intake of fluids in the body and enhanced intake of magnesium, which acts to prevent the occurrence of spasms and muscle spasm, which often accompany painful inflammation. Sore muscles can heal and cold compress. On painful areas can put some ice or something cold, but always make sure for frostbite.
