100% functional vs. body-part training?

I've got a couple dozen great workouts designed by a trainer for me that I think are all "functional" - meaning either 3 sets or 1 superset of exercises like burpees, squat thrusts, lunge jumps, box jumps, push ups, shoulder taps, wall squats, bulgarian split squats, shoulder press, tricep...

Unhappy Early AM Training
