This brings me to the most profound statement of the year for me which goes on to say, "That which challenges your assumptions breaks your existing mental frame."For example, you can believe with all your heart and might in something, but the moment y ...

What can't you do that healthy, pain free people can? Is it touching your toes? Is it being able to squat through a full range of motion? Is it being able to extend your arm overhead?

Stereotypically speaking, most civilians are willing lean into the notion of functional training, at least conceptually. Furthermore, they’ll often be willing do so without having a specific definition of what “functional training” might mean in the first place. "Functional training" sounds good.
