Functional Strength Training


At Perfect Postures, we pride ourselves on our clients’ successes. We feel that our program’s success is a comprehensive, two-part process. The first is by helping our clients’ pain concerns through our corrective exercise program and the second is through our functional strength training program. With this program, we are able to continue helping our clients by selecting and sequencing the correct strength training exercises and making sure they are performing the exercises correctly. In doing so, we are ensuring that our clients are strengthening their muscles in the correct planes of motion and executing proper joint movement patterns. This is a critical step in preventing future injuries as well as maintaining all of the work our clients have done with our corrective exercise program.

Benefits of Functional Strength Training:

  • Improved Quality of Life: Prepares body for activities of daily living, such as carrying groceries, moving furniture, climbing stairs, etc.

  • Overall Health & Well-Being: Exercising in all 3 planes of motion reduces risk of injury. Humans are designed to move in 3 planes of motion: frontal, sagittal, and transverse. When you move consistently in only 1 or 2 planes of motion, you are more susceptible to injuries. Training in all 3 planes develops strength, fitness, balance, agility, and flexibility.

  • Neuromuscular Adaptations: Full body workout that targets upper and lower body at the same time. This increases the number of muscle fibers being recruited to perform a specific task, leading to both prime and small movers performing their muscle actions more effectively and appropriately.
