Conjunction Junction, what's your Function

Conjunction: The joining together or combining of two or more things.
Junction: Joining of things or their joined state
Function: An action or use for which something was designed
The other day a friend asked me why I put core and flexibility in the same category. They are two different things aren't they?


Why Warm-Up

I have mentioned several times the importance of having a balanced program that includes core stabilization training, strength training, power training, balance training and flexibility training. While everyone will agree with me that flexibility is very important, I often do not see it implemented correctly, or at all. I cannot count the number of times I have seen or see someone walk into a workout facility, put their things away, and head right to the weight room to start lifting. Or, I see a team get ready to hit the field or court and do very little to prepare themselves for what they are about to do.

Utilizing Stretching to Enhance Your Program by Randy Brandt, BA Kinesiology, NASM CPT, PES(c)2003

A well designed training program should include many components including, core stabilization, balance, strength, power, and flexibility training. This article will specifically address flexibility training and postural dysfunctions.

The body's basic functions are squatting, bending, lunging, rotating, pushing, pulling, balancing and changing directions. Once you establish the basic stability and flexibility needed to perform these tasks efficiently, your training program can go wherever you want it to go; functional, aesthetic or athletic.
