Abstract

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.
