How functional are you really?

How functional are you really?

August 15, 2019

Are you a specialist, or does your functional ability provide value to your life?

It’s great if you’re exceptional in one area, if that is for your sport or chosen career, but what does that mean for everything else? Does it simply mean you’re a novice in many others?

Here’s a great way to find how functional you really are:
  • 1.0km (weighted) run, directly into:
  • 10 sets of Cadence Exercises at a 4 second cadence, moving at the beep.
  • 5x heaves, 10x push ups, 15 squats (No cadence)
  • Directly into: 1.0km (weighted) run.
Under 30 minutes, you’re a jet. Over 30 minutes? Easy to tell what part needs work. Because that’s the beauty of cadence work, there’s no where to hide. You’re either capable, or you’re not.
Don’t run with weight if you’re not accustomed to it, running without is just as effective. Hot debate this one, so step up to the plate if you disagree.

Looking for an app to set your cadence so you don’t have to count? Maelz Sport.
