That’s the first thing that I thought when I heard the term, “Anabolic Stretching“.
But the main problem with conventional stretching programs is that they often work against your body’s physiology, rather than with it.
So when I learned more about the concept, it started to make SO much sense.
You see, if you take a tight, cold muscle and expose it to prolonged “standard” stretching, you could incur scar tissue and micro-tearing, which could then lead to muscle weakness, inflexibility, and injury.
Obviously that’s not what we want.
What we want is to use stretching to supercharge your muscle, and bulletproof your body.
And that’s what Anabolic Stretching is all about!
I am now a big fan. I have started to implement these techniques to get even better results myself, and with my training clients.
The “big idea” of the anabolic stretching concept is to hold a moderate weight in the fully stretched position of an exercise for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds.
An example would be to hang from a pull up bar for 30-60 seconds.
Or, to hold the bottom position of a KB pullover for the same amount of time.
You’d do this immediately post-workout, focusing on muscles you worked that day.
I will be back soon with more info on the method, with more sample routines and details on how to incorporate it into your training, etc … but if you are interested and think you could benefit from this, I highly recommend you just drop the 9 bux to get the full Anabolic Stretching program, using the link below:
