80lbs Turkish getup

"I see zero value in that. The shoulder capsule is under tremendous pressure and she is a small movement or slip from injury. Why would you risk your athletes safety for that. This profession just gets less intelligent as the years go by."

- A discussion about grip strength and straps

Functional strength is the type of strength athletes seek for improved sport performance and reduced risk of injury. Functional strength is also the type of strength that you would use in non-gym situations.
