Thought you maybe interested in a new website, Frankies Training Lab, launched yesterday by Strength Coach Frank Addelia.
He is an advocate of functional training, using non-traditional tools, such as rings, ropes, kettlebells........the list goes on. The reason I am keen to promote this site, is because I have the same philosophies about exercising. Functional training, in Frankies words; "mimics what we do in life and sport. Muscle isolation style of training is great for the sport of body building and early phases of physical therapy, but it doesn't translate well in the real world! When we do basic chores we squat, bend, twist, reach, so should we when we train".
You will find some fun videos of Frank doing workouts that you will find both inspiring and exhausting to watch!!
