Our Top 5 Blogs That Will Help You Improve Functional Movement and Live a Healthy Life

At StrongTek, we’re committed to helping people of all ages and abilities live longer, happier, and healthier lives.

In addition to providing a range of products that can help you improve your balance and fitness, we also offer advice in our Fitness Academy.

As we close out 2021 and look forward to 2022, we encourage you to explore all the ways you can improve your functional movement in the new year.

To help you with that, here is an overview of some of our favorite blog posts that were written over this last year with the intent to help people of all abilities achieve their wellness and fitness goals.

Functional Movement

Let’s start by uncovering what functional movement is and how you can tell if you need to improve it. Functional fitness training helps you strengthen the muscles you use doing everyday activities, such as walking, picking things up off the floor, and standing up from a chair.

Learn how to do a functional movement screen from home to gauge your level of functional fitness. Then, work on improving your functional fitness with seven different exercises that will work your entire body and help you do everyday activities without getting tired, sore, or injured.

Add these exercises to your existing exercise routine to get even more out of every workout.

Aging Adults

There’s no reason to slow down just because you have another birthday. We strongly believe that adults of all ages should have access to information and tools that can help them stay strong and balanced, so they never have to miss a moment.

Current guidelines recommend that adults who are 65 or older should get at least 150 minutes of activity a week. But, of course, there’s no reason to stop there if you are feeling good! The more you can move your body every week, the better.

 No matter what your current activity level is, we’re here to help. First, learn how to reduce your risk of falls inside the home  by doing a few strength and balance exercises every day. Then, if you’re ready for more of a challenge, try these strength and cardio exercises for seniors that can be done from home.

Balance for Everybody

Balance exercises are essential for everyone, not just seniors. Improving your balance can help prevent falls and injuries. It can also help your athletic performance.

We strongly encourage everyone from aging adults to elite athletes to incorporate balance exercises into their day.

 Learn more about the importance of balance for everybody. Then, see why StrongTek’s balance pads have been rated among the best balance pads in the U.K.

Work at Home Lifestyle

In 2021, a lot of people spent time working from home. Our blog explored many ways you can still get a quality workout without spending money or time at the gym.

Try this morning yoga routine that can help you set your mindset for the day. Then, when you hit that midday slump, these lunchtime stretches can get your blood flowing and help you get through the rest of the workday.

After a long day of work, you might feel like sweating. These strength training exercises can be done without weights from anywhere in your home. All you need is enough floor space to do a plank.

Whether you’re still working from home or are back in the office, you might not be ready to head back to the gym in 2022. Make sure to review our advice for working out from home to get results without spending a fortune.

Sport-Specific Advice

It’s crucial for athletes to properly stretch before, during, and after their workouts to prevent injuries. This year, we offered advice for swimmers, runners, and hockey players who want to stay flexible and strong throughout their seasons.
