Myofascial Lines. What the heck are they?? First off, everything is fascia. To some degree, we could consider all material in the body to be some kind of fascia: skin, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, etc basically they are lines of connective tissue that run through our body.
Fascial research teaches us a number of things when it comes to training and conditioning the human body. These lines help the body to move as a unit. Keeping fascia lines in mind when executing your training program design has incredible benefits including firing order to create a better contraction on the targeted muscle. There are several groups of fascia lines.
Understanding the fascia lines and priming and training in accordance with these groups can greatly improve your posture, pain, poor firing order and muscle contraction thus resulting in better muscle growth and results
There is a posterior (back) line, anterior (front) line, spiral, and lateral lines, superficial arm line, deep arm line,
In these 2 videos I demonstrate priming exercises before my back workout.
The lats are apart of the Back Arm Lines which include a muscle firing line of - flexion of the finger extensors, wrist, biceps, forearm, bicep, depression of the shoulder, lateral spinal rotation and up to lats.
After a few of these priming exercises you should feel your lats cramping. If during your back workout you loose engagement in the lats than add these to your superset and those lats will be sure to be in fire 🔥 #programdesign#training#backdayworkout#fascia#musclegains#fitness#fitchick#girlswholift#personaltrainer#coaching#results#fatloss#weightraining@coachkoencastelein@coachjakecarter
GETTING BACK INTO IT. Had to take last week off from heavy lifting because of a hamstring pull. It up by my butt so I’m adding I’m more glute work with a flexed knee. I’m thinking it will help. Should be another week or so before I get back into really heavy stuff. I’m hoping to stay healthy for a while and tie together some good strength cycles. I think I may add another phase to my lifting and hopefully cut down my body fat for the summer. LIKE IF YOU HAVE SIMILAR GOALS!!!!
