Functional training has been a fitness industry buzzword for some time now, although it’s hard to define exactly. The problem lies with what does and what does not constitute a functional exercise. This is not always a simple question to answer, and what is deemed functional for one person may not be for another.

Short on time? Want to Increase your fitness? Looking to Burn Fat?

When setting out on the quest for tone and shape it all comes down to the finer details of training and nutrition. To gain visible muscle tone you will need to have a combination of a small amount of muscle growth, and a decrease in body fat percentage.

If you want to lose fat, you need to start eating a little less and a little more healthily. This will create a calorie deficit. Your body will make up this calorie shortfall by burning body fat. The result? You’ll get leaner and will probably lose weight too.

Training for muscle growth can be hard. You need to hit the gym consistently, and with plenty of intensity. You also need to pay attention to what you eat and what supplements you take, and then make sure that you get enough rest between workouts to recover and grow. It’s a full time job!

There’s a bunch of reasons people give up too soon, but here are the most common excuses....

It is imperative that a person maintain their fitness levels year-round. Many great exercises can be performed at home, with little or no equipment. Here are the top cardio and strength training exercises to do while indoors.

Look around your gym, and you’ll see a lot of ineffective warm-up routines. You’ll see people doing 20-plus minutes of cardio before strength training, riding an exercise bike before an upper body workout, or static stretching before starting a dynamic training session.

Workouts don’t have to be long to be effective. In fact, when time is against you, you are much more likely to work hard and fast. Short, sharp workouts are more intense and productive than workouts that are done with less urgency. Yes, they hurt more too but that pain is over in minutes rather than hours! If you dread long, laborious leg training sessions, give this workout a try; it’ll be over before you know it!
