Michael Boyle, one of the world's leading sport performance coaches, presents the concepts, methods, exercises and programmes that maximise athletes' movements in competition. Self-reinforcing progressions in exercises for the lower body, core, upper body, and ultimately total body give athletes the balance, proprioception, stability, strength and power they require for excelling in their sports.
Sample programmes assist in the customisation process and ensure each aspect of preparation for physical performance. Goes beyond traditional exercise descriptions and explanations, incorporating full-colour, high-definition composites of foundational movements as well as online access to video demonstrations, commentary and analysis of key exercises.
Function is, essentially, purpose. When we use the word function we are saying that something has a purpose. So when we apply that term to training for sports we are talking about purposeful training for sports. The idea of functional training or functional exercise actually originated in the sports medicine world. As is often the case, the thoughts and exercises used in rehab found their way from the physical therapy clinic and athletic training room into the weight room. The most basic thought was that the exercises used to return an athlete to health might also be the best exercises to maintain and improve health.
Since the concept of functional training was first applied to sports it has been misunderstood and mislabeled by many athletes and coaches. Terms such as sport specific, which implies that certain movements and movement patterns are specific to individual sports, have been used to describe some functional training concepts. But sport-specific training takes place with the athlete on the mat, field, or court, whereas in strength and conditioning we work to get the athlete stronger and to improve specific conditioning. Indeed, functional training may be more accurately represented by the term sports-general training than by the term sport-specific training.
