Functional Fitness Exercise by FitFarms' Andy (Video)
In this video we have Ian commentating with Andy demonstrating. Ian is our oldest trainer at the weight loss retreat and has the most experience in the health and fitness industry. Andy has 10 years of experience and has worked as a Manager for a well known health and fitness club.
Andy's favourite style of exercise is functional fitness and in the video he is demonstrating good technique and body movement. This is a difficult exercise and you will need to focus on balance.
There is a bicep curl mixed in with a forward lunge and then just to end the fitness exercise Andy moves into a windmill technique at the end.
If you wish to practise stability this is a great exercise and we often use it on the FitFarms weight loss holidays to aid weight loss. The exercise also concentrates a lot on the core area and is known to have a great functional pattern for all round fitness.
This style of exercise can be practised on both sides and it is important to do so to keep your strength even on both sides.
