If you ever think of gaining muscle, stretching is something that you may have not thought of. Stretching in fact plays a vital role in muscle building.
Each muscle present in our body is enclosed with a tough connective tissue which is known as fascia. Fascia is an essential thing in holding our muscles in place in our body.
However, there’s a good chance that our fascia is holding back the growth of our muscles. Simply think that you are training your muscle and feeds it and in return our muscles wish to grow, but something is holding it back. They end up not having room to grow.
Due to the fact that fascia is tough, it simply will not allow muscles to expand. Think of the case where you stuff a big pillow to a small case. So, the muscle in this case will not change even if you are training hard or take care of your muscle because its connective tissue of the muscle does not permit the muscle to grow.
Our lower leg is riddled with fascia due to the reason where there’s a tremendous weight-bearing duties in our body. It is likewise because of fascia that a lot of trainers have the difficulties in developing their calves.
The fact is, it is through stretching where you could find a solution for this. Remember the example of the pillow case, imagine where you can actually expand this more by stretching it. This gives the pillow inside more room to expand and for it to fill in the new space. When you are going to stretch your muscles on certain conditions, you can stretch your fascia and this is going to give the muscles some room for growth.
One of the most effective fascial stretching is the pump. The best time for you to stretch in expanding the bags which hold the muscles in place would be when your muscles will be pumped full of blood.
When muscles are fully pumped, this will press against the fascia. If you stretch hard at that time, you will be increasing the pressure on the fascia which would lead to its expansion.
Fascia stretching is actually more rigorous compared to the regular stretching methods and the results are truly amazing. When stretching hard, it will cause the fascia in expanding more and you will definitely feel this. If you are going to stretch your fascia, this will make you feel a powerful pressure and sensation because your muscles are working against it in order to expand.
