“Don’t ask for a light load, but rather for a strong back.”
Our functional strength classes focus on improving capacity through movements you need for not only performance and aesthetics, but also longevity. When it comes to longevity, one of the most telling physical leading indicators is posture and spine stability. To improve and maintain spine stability, the body must have the availability to activate the core and glutes while maintaining healthy posture through various movements. Shoulder and hip mobility are two important factors that will either help or hinder the body’s ability to maintain that muscular activation as it moves through those different positions. As we create mobility in the joints, we need strength to keep the body in that alignment, especially through the entire posterior chain. Assemble Functional Strength Programming indexes heavily on those concepts with each week reflecting a 1:2 push pull ratio.
