Course update

Hello guys! We hope thet you are well!

We would like to tell you about our next course!

We have today almost finished the curricolum and where we will focus more in the strength and crossfit, due to the answers on our latest servey. Crossfit is a very broad training form. But we will begin with what we think is a huge part of injuries that we want to prevent and increasee your knowledge about.

In this course we will focus on a  1 hour course with strict focus on pullups without and with kipping, chest to bar, Muscle up and also ring muscle up and ofcourse much more! What to think about and how to scale the exercises down so that we can begin to train for them. with the goal ofcourse to do them with right technique in the future. We are all different, so therefore we need to tackle the exercises differently.

We will stay in touch! Til’ then, take care!

Get to know Robin

I (Robin) started riding motocross when I was 4.5 years old. As soon as I had learned to ride a bicycle my dad bought a motorcycle for me. Because motorcycles are in our family’s blood motocross came naturally to me. Hockey was also a strong interest in my early age when I played a number of years with The Lion in Landskrona in Sweden.

I quit very rapidly when I in first person found out that the changing rooms smelled disgusting from all the sweat, and started playing floorball instead. In that years to come we were by far the best team in our cohort. We won all that we signed up in, because we all had what we call the “winning skull”. We never gave up, and I think it has something to do with how I’ve always been playing or training for sports. It did not matter how difficult or hard a workout was, I just did it. And that’s the same mentality with motocross that I had with the team and I still do that. That is a part of me, a fundamental why on how I do things. Because of that, I have had a good athletic development that I benefit from today.

But my motocross career did not really start until I became 10 years old, when I and my father started training and compete in 80cc class where I was in the top for 2 years. We have always run 100% technology training and we have never been upset about how fast it went, our main focus was that the riding was technically correct. We knew the speed would come. So when I grew up and starter riding 125 cc in 2002, I received a request to join the team. The team gave us lots of more driving hours than everyone else got and with, we had a winning concept. That year would be the best and the worst year. In the coming years, it was really what we had hoped that everything would fall into place. I took the start and pulled away quickly. But after a tragic crash, I was scared, afraid and I did not finish that competition. I have never been mentally tough. As a kid I was bullied a lot. And I have had a hard time coming back from that. I feel now that I maybe ended my career to fast, But it’s hard to completely shut something down, something that has been your life for so long. So after three years I started driving again. After that, it has been back and forth a number of times. When I think back at it today I know I was a late bloomer. By that I mean that I was not mentally ready for riding and competing at the highest level. If it was today, it would have been a different kind of situation.

I was introduced to Crossfit Winter 2013 where I was warmly taken care of by one of the coaches who was a weightlifting and a crossfit coach. And it was like a completely different world opened up to me and I thought this is really my right element. Work hard with high heart rate while getting stronger, smoother. I began to think that this must be absolutely perfect for motocross drivers and decided to become a physical trainer.

Everything that I have learned about hard work, right work and when not to work. Is not meant to just stay with me. I want to educate the world about physical training and we have worked hard for this functional basics platform.  We hope that you will find this course interesting and that you take what was best for you and train on just that. Remember, it is not only how hard we train, it is also how hard we can rest.

Best Regards

maybe the best shoes out there.

My old shoes were so bad that I got huge blister under my feets, so therefore I decided to buy new running shoes. I reasently bought my own Asics Noosa FF. I was very exited because I knew that is was a quality shoe and could not wait to try them on. First of all they look so freakingly nice that I could use them everyday. I wanted to test them properly for my selfe and decided to run 10 km, that is concidered a normal run. I ran on 49,31 and afterwards I felt exausted and I realy went for it. But my feets were like i just have had a powerwalk. I was amazed how much shoes can help us perform and how important that it is with proper high quality shoes

Don’t get stuck in a rut 

Get out of the rut!
Not everyone’s willing to put in the legwork to become the best that they can be. Some people simply settle for a healthy enough lifestyle, and some can’t even be bothered to do that.

Frankly, it’s each to their own, but the reality is that many of us are also feeling trapped; we struggle to take the next step, reaching out for anything that could help us go on.

Solution
You may not be able to be the best in the world, but we all have the power to be best that we can be. If you find yourself stuck in a rut and you’ve no idea how to proceed, what you must do is look within yourself. The solution to your predicament is not somewhere out there in the world, but inside you. You need to ask yourself “why?” – Why do you want to improve yourself? What drives you? If you are able to find that fundamental answer, then it’s your way out and onto the road to success.
You don’t have to rely on external factors when the necessary motivation is found within yourself – the motivation that allows you to take the pain required to reach your goals and end up where you want to be.

Start with why
That being said, finding the answer can be tricky. Let me tell you how I did it.
The knowledge base for training was poor around the parts where I lived. When I realised this, I wanted to change it. I wanted to help my fellow athletes perform better, to reach their goals.
I started out with a group of fifteen people before I launched functionalbasics.com. To me, it was remarkably fulfilling to help other people chase their dreams. The website was essentially born of a desire to help educate people. Having finished an appropriate education, I began to write about what I had learned.
I expect there are more people out there, though, who are stuck in their training because they don’t know how to proceed. People that want more and are willing to work a little harder and take that next step. That’s where I come in. This is why I do it and why I don’t get stuck.

Best you can be
I’ve always said: “Be the best that you can be.”
Say you perform a sport of some kind. As you can imagine, there are some exercises that will help you improve in that sport, and there are some that are less suited to the task. You obviously want to do the right exercises for your particular sport. Doing so will increase your performance and make you better at it.
Don’t let anything stand in your way if you want something more, something bigger.
The harsh truth is that training incorrectly could potentially decrease performance instead of increasing it. For example, a sprinter wants to build muscles that are optimal for running really fast in short bursts. However, because they don’t have all the necessary information, they are thinking exercise is exercise, as do many people. So they decide to go for a 30-minute run.
Now, as a sprinter, you need your muscles to digest carbohydrates instead of burning them with oxygen, and by running for a long time you are adapting your muscles to the latter, which is not optimal. The purpose of Functional Basics is to provide you with this knowledge.
Head over to “http://functionalbasics.com/tests/cardio-test/” to learn how to increase your endurance and VO2max!

Right training
For the sprinter, running short intervals of 30 seconds, followed by a 30-second resting period is likely a better way to exercise.
Maybe you do a sport where you aren’t consistently running in a straight line? Then you might be better off running in a zigzag pattern. The more you tailor your training to suit the sport, the better you will be at it. You want to train for optimal performance!
