Synopsis

The Complete Guide to Functional Training by Allan Collins

As well as being THE concept in fitness and strength and conditioning, functional training is also probably the most poorly understood concept in fitness. Functional training is any exercise that improves your ability to perform tasks required in your day to day life, job or chosen sport - so that each movement included as part of your workout mimics a range of motion or engages muscles that are necessary to impact on performance - whether it be on the rugby pitch or simply the ability to lift small children out of car seats. Includes over 100 functional exercises and detailed pictures and descriptions of all the techniques show you clearly how to apply them into your training programme.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
