My concept of a fortunate person is one who, after an entire life of physical activity and able to get out of the bed without feeling any muscle soreness, no moaning, creaking or slouching. It's a truly fortunate athlete who can exercise their muscles for decades and not feel the effects of age, such as tightness and inflexibility.
A majority of us come to an age where we aren't able to keep up with the speed. It's impossible to continue running the miles we've grown accustomed to running with no cost to pay each morning when the alarm is set to go off. The sensation you feel is normal muscle soreness, but it's also the normal buildup of lactic acid which accumulates as from Facial Rollers. Everyone is familiar with the sensation when you rush up a set of steps and get that slight ache in your thighs which could spark an open flame. However, I am talking about an entirely different type of pain that goes beyond the short discomfort of an additional exercise.
If climbing an incline was the only thing that made me was aching, I'd be one content camper.I've also been known to continue exercising, even during the quad burning. However, I'm talking about another, more pervasive type of tightness. The inflexibility I am referring to is still present in the afternoon. It's felt at times when you turn to secure your seat belt or reach to tie your shoes. In my experience I was able to tolerate this restriction in my bodily movements for around six months, exploring all sorts and types of stretching Pilates as well as a myriad of yoga lessons.
But I was still limited. I felt flexible, yet tight. I began to conduct some searching on Internet by searching for a few terms that explained my symptoms. I found a brand-new term. The reason for my body's rigidity was something I learned about as FASCIA. Fascia is one of the types of connective tissue which surrounds and generally protects muscles, joints, bones and even organs aiding us in maintaining our posture. Everyone has fascia.
Think of it as the wetsuit that covers our body's interior, just beneath the surface of our skin. Some people are more hefty in their "wetsuits " than others. The more active that you're, the more thick the skin Facial Rollers will be. This is an action your body uses to keep itself in shape during increased activity. The jocks who I have been envious about earlier have a minimal feeling of tightness due to the fact that their fascia deposits don't seem to be thin or thick.
Certain people are more likely to have more fascia growth than other people. Numerous experts think that this higher layering of fascia is due to dehydration, and not the kind that is a result of" I'm thirsty" dehydration and a lack of fluid , and consequently fluidity in connective tissue that no amount of water consumption can sate. That is, fortunate jocks who are pain-free are more hydrated throughout their connective tissue.
The unfortunate "stiffs" have the opposite tendencies. Our bodies tend to create more fascia due to of less hydration within the connective tissues, particularly in the regions of strong working horse muscle groups, such as the lower back, buttocks and thighs. Consider that when we get older, our bodies naturally decrease their ability to sustain hydration. Consider how many middle-aged men you read about who have injured their Achilles tendon as they jumped to lay-up during basketball. This kind of injury only occurs in children, which is due in a large way to the lack of fluid in connective tissue.
That's where stiffness in the morning begins. If you continue to exercise in the same way as I did, the facial tightness will become restricting to your fitness routine. That's where I learned the wisdom behind the expression "Stop, Drop & Roll" and not only when you're on fire! I purchased an inflatable roller, following the fitness tips provided by New York City expert, Facial Rollers, owner of Longevity Fitness, Inc in New Yourk City and creator of the M.E.L.T. Method. M.E.L.T. is an abbreviation that stands for Myofascial energetic length Technique. Certain experts also refer to this method as Myofascial Release. She informed me that the deep compression of these regions of tightness in the fascia could restore the elasticity of these body parts and bring a feeling of relief to my tired but athletic body. Not is Ms. Hitzmann correct regarding her foam roller. She also lived up to her promises of instant ease from stiff muscles. She clarifies that foam rollers helps to rehydrate connective tissues by compressing the area. This reduces the tissue and allows the hydration of the area to take place. It's like trigger point therapy, but this method is more effective. My opinion is just my own however, having tried Trigger point therapy and MFR
