What is functional strength training about?

Getting results.

Overweight
/strength over show. Look at weightlifters vs bodybuilders. Who are the strongest. Who are steroid-puffed up creatures. So you have one of the two answers for "functional" strength training. The other is sports or activity related resistance exercise, specifically designed for competition in a given sport. The exercise for a rower rae inappropriate for a distance runner.

Is it possible to get abs while strength training?

Yes

Strength_training
Getting abs is a function of two things: losing body fat (which is probably 90% of it) and building abdominal strength. So if you are strength training and are in a "bulking" phase, you may get stronger and put on body fat at the same time and lose abdominal definition and be gaining abdominal strength. So it really depends on your definition of getting abs.

What are good strength training program for women?

Resistance exercise.

Go slow initially, if new to this. Some sporting activities such as cycling will put \quite a bit of muscle on legs, so you will need a combination of upper and lower extremity training. I like dumbells and machines for initially workouts to avoid injury. Push ups, sit ups, and a variety can help you meet your exercise goal. And eat plenty of protein, so you don't waste your efforts!

I have heart disease. Will strength training help?

Very likely yes

Strength_training
In many cases, after having a heart attack, etc, strength training can improve your exercise tolerance and circulation, decrease edema (swelling of your legs), and help you maintain a normal blood sugar and weight. However, it is important to make sure your your blood pressure is well controlled first and that your cardiologist approves (depending on the type of heart disease that you have).

How many reps should i do strength training per day?

Depends

Strength_training
It depends on your goal. If you are looking to tone your muscles, lower weight and higher rep such as 2-3 sets of 12-15 reps is generally recommended. if your goal is to enlarge the muscles, higher weight with lower rep such as 2-3 sets of 6-8 is generally recommended.
