Functional training has become one of the most adulterated terms in the vocabulary of trainers and athletes. 99% of the functional training you see athletes doing is neither functional nor training.

If you disagree, answer this question for me: How is training on a bosu ball functional?

Consider that functional training is meant to help you function better. When (outside of a stupid training session) have you functioned on top of a bosu ball?

One of my favorite bloggers, Tony Gentilcore, wrote an awesome article about this today:
