When you do omni-directional sub-maximal loading, you create layers of fascia around muscles and joints that just give it more stability and integrity. When the body senses more stability and integrity around it, it allows higher recruitment patterns, which results in more strength.
The Whole Body System
The muscle-bone concept presented in most of our standard anatomical descriptions gives a purely mechanical model of movement where levers and other things tend to exist. But in reality, there is a seamless picture of integration that is viewed in the living body. What moves joints is not just a muscle and bone concept. It …
Healthy Fascia vs. Dying Fascia
Healthy fascia is rich with bonded water proteins that allow for better shape stability and more dynamism within the tissue. The aging process is a process of dehydration. We want to fortify the issues with your training, but also good nutrition and good hydration strategies, good movement strategies throughout the day to keep this tissue …
Weight Training vs. Isokinetic Training
Studies have shown that the human anatomy has the ability to generate greater force at the end ranges of motion when the muscle is at its shortest length while using isokinetic machines, as compared to traditional weightlifting. When we use traditional weights, mechanical advantage and momentum of the weight play a big role. It’s like …
Active vs. Inactive Fascia
ACTIVE FASCIA is lattice-shaped, and becomes more DYNAMIC, STRONG, and more effectively stores and releases ENERGY??? LESS ACTIVE FASCIA becomes very matted and leads to a higher chance of INJURY?
The Catapult Mechanism: Elastic Recoil of Fascial Tissues
(Excerpt from “Fascial Fitness: Fascia oriented training for bodywork and movement thereapies” by Divo G. Muller & Robert Schleip) Kangaroos can hop much farther and faster than can be explained by the force of the contraction of their leg muscles. Under closer scrutiny, scientists discovered that a spring -like action is behind the unique ability: …
