"In functional training, strength is developed with the intent of improving sport skills, not for the sake of more strength. Size is developed in areas that will benefit from greater size, not for aesthetics. Although many coaches glorify strength and flaunt the one-rep max of their athletes, strength should be judged with the knowledge that the only valuable strength is functional strength. Although many people train for appearance, functional training views improved appearance as a by-product of performance enhancement training."
