4 Best Foundational Exercises For A Functional Workout Program :Squat, Lunge, Plank, Row



Personal trainer, Kai Wheeler out of San Diego, CA demonstrates 4 of the best exercises for a functional workout program. Squat, lunge, plank, row. 1.) The squat is a very important exercise because it trains the muscles of the legs, glutes and core. In addition, the squat trains proper weight distribution through a range of motion. 2.) The lunge is a very beneficial exercise because it trains pibedal movement patterns that we use on a daily basis as humans. 3.) The plank is a very useful exercise for core stabilization, especially when done correctly. 4.) Last but not least, the row is a very important exercise to strengthen the back muscles responsible for pulling along with the core muscles during trunk rotation. Although these exercises are basic, they should not be overlooked. All exercises in the gallery on my website are progressed from these 4.
