American Crossfit Coach Provides Masterclass In ‘Functional Bodybuilding’
Seeking functional strength? One American Cross Fit just shared an epic ‘between season’ workout that shows you how to attain it like a pro.
The coach, Marcus Filly, is the owner of (and head coach at) Revival Strength. He also has a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology (with an emphasis in Nutrition and Physiology) and has competed at the Cross Fit Games 6 times. To top it off, Mr. Filly also shares his outrageous workout routines on Instagram for his followers to see and learn from.
Of course, you should never attempt anything out of your comfort zone without consulting a medical professional, but if you live for fitness and are keen to find an epic ‘between season’ challenge, read on.
Mr. Filly last week posted a masterclass in functional bodybuilding, first demonstrating an Olympic lift routine, then a kettle-bell heavy ‘hamstring accessory’ workout.
“What is Functional Bodybuilding?”, Mr Filly captioned the post. “It is the blending of disciplines in fitness that complement one another to deliver a very purposeful dose. In today’s training case we are working on Posterior Chain speed strength and then accessory accumulation work.”
He then provides a breakdown of the workout for those brave (and fit) enough to emulate.
Part 1. Clean Complex every 90sec x 6 sets
Segment Power Clean
2 Hang Power Cleans
Part 2. Posterior Chain Accessory
20 Steps Death March
20 Hamstring Curls w/ Band
20 Banded Hip Thrusters x 3-4 sets – rest as needed between exercises
Need more inspiration? Mr. Filly posted another routine just this morning which shows you a whole new way of getting your sweat on, and building functional muscle like a true professional (see below).
Your summer body (or a trip to the physio) awaits.
