This is the kind of functional training I am trying to preach at my gym that I train at. The old school guys don't want to hear it but when they see my tone and definition not to mention my edurance it speaks for it self.
When people ask me how do I work out, my answer is I train for body effiency so my body can withstand high stress levels weather its my grappling or my kickboxing/karate and boxing. Functional training is the way to go and this article is great for opening eyes to this form of training.
