The Functional Continuum explores how functional an exercise is by determining the amount of movement required to complete the action. As all sports and most activities in life (functional) require multiple joint movements, the more functional an exercise, the more transferable it is to sport and everyday life. The functional continuum also allows exercise prescriptors to understand whether the exercise selected has a high movement focus or a high muscle focus and explains how to increase or decrease this focus. However before we move into discussing the functional continuum, here are a few reminders as to the role of skeletal muscle.
