There’s nothing like curling up with a book during these cold winter days. I’ve been reading a bit more due to quarantine, plus enjoying a good new book never goes out of style.
Here’s what I’m reading this winter:
Functional Training and Beyond
Inactive and stressful lifestyles. Many of us have forgotten how to move correctly. We live with muscular imbalances, constant pain, and low energy. Adam Sinicki is on a mission to change this. He is best known for his YouTube channel “The Bioneer”, where he provides expertise on functional training, brain training, productivity, flow states, and more.
Become better than just functional. Currently popular functional training is exercise as rehabilitation. It aims to restore normal, healthy strength and mobility using compound and multi-faceted movements. In Functional Training and Beyond, Adam reveals how we can become “better than just functional.” We can train so that we move better, think more clearly, feel energetic, and even live more efficiently.
An entirely new way to train. Up until now working out has been defined as having one of two goals ─ get bigger or get leaner. But why are those the only goals? What if there was a third, practical, healthy and exciting way to train our body as well as our mind? Functional Training and Beyond shows us how we can train our brains just like our bodies, and how to incorporate this into a comprehensive, well-rounded program
