With roots in the Prague School, based on the work of Drs. Karel Lewit and Vladimir Janda, this handbook brings training and conditioning to a new level. Combining elements from prevention to rehab to performance, the Functional Training Handbook offers readers a foundation from a contemporary view of the way we approach functional movement.
The foundation (Part 1) for the functional approach begins with an understanding of Developmental Kinesiology (Chapter 4), the process by which we learn to move, and the process by which we restore proper movement. Proper assessment of function and faulty movement patterns (Chapter 6) is well explained as the starting point for functional training. My favorite section of the handbook is Part 2 - Sport-specific training considerations. This section features exercise and training experts from 14 different sports, each providing specific exercises and a functional approach to strength and conditioning. Part 3 provides a great section on "off-season" considerations, a critical component that sometimes misses the attention it deserves.
The Functional Training Handbook ends appropriately with the role of motor control and athletic development, bringing this book full-circle from our control of movement as babies to teaching athletes to move properly.
I thank Dr. Liebenson for bringing this book together, and recommend it for a variety of professionals interested in improving functional movement, including physical therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and strength and conditioning specialists.
What I wanted next was to like this book for the intermediate personal trainer. Someone looking to go from the general exercise fluff into a more research-based realm. Again, Liebenson pulls from lots of great minds in his meat-and-potato chapters. I don't think this book is right for the intermediate level trainer either because it lacks a guiding model for these trainers to work from. I remember back to when I was at that point in my career... digesting lots of information but frequently not knowing how to tie it together. The Functional Training Handbook contains many bits and pieces of information, with naturally less supporting information than in the original works, and still doesn't suggest how to use them as part of one system. It's still too good of a way to get lost. For the intermediate trainer I'd suggest reading the original works to understand them and one day be able to integrate the ideas together yourself.
I think this book could really be great if Liebenson focused on the intermediate personal trainer type, continued to pull in many great concepts in the functional exercise world and systematized them so the reader could go from 1. theory 2. assessment 3. exercise/stretch/intervention in a clear and unified fashion. I think he needs to pull many of the great concepts out there as I see he is trying to do and take the next step and add value by synthesing a framework.
This handbook provides a good grounding in science of rehabilitation in the early chapters and in ensuing pages gives you a solid framework for assessing and restoring function. Then later chapters detail sport specific or body part specific training and strength and conditioning guidance. Dr. Liebenson et. al. have provided us with a practical road map to becoming artists in the field of functional training. The Functional Training Handbook is a great tool for any DC, PT, ATC or personal trainer who wants to make powerful lasting changes in the lives of their clients. I can't wait to watch the companion DVDs!
