Have you been working out regularly and seem to have a certain muscle group that just won’t grow? Have you been doing all sorts of exercises and diets but unable to get cut? What about those stubborn fat pockets that you just can’t get rid of no matter how much you work at it. Fascia is the often-overlooked component to health and fitness and is the root cause of issues.
Fascia is the connective tissue that is under your skin, encasing your body and webbing its way through your insides like spider webs. Fascia is made up primarily of densely packed collagen fibers that create a full body system of sheets, chords, and bags that wrap, divide and permeate every one of your muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs. Every bit of you is encased in it. You’re ensured by belt, associated by sash, and kept fit as a fiddle by belt.
Why didn’t anyone indicate fascia could be your problem before? Because until recently, not many knew about this tricky function that may be your body’s most important system! When fascia is tight, it restricts the nerve signal. Nerves are the emissaries that send signals from the cerebrum to the muscles. When the signal is interrupted, or choked out, the muscle output is lessened. Fascia can also encase muscles, not allowing the definition to show through.
The FasciaBlaster® can loosen the fascia that is restricting the nerve signal and increase blood flow, causing muscles to be unable to fire correctly. If the mind-body connection is weak, you will not be able to effectively target the muscles that you want to grow and the correct muscles won’t fire as they should. Therefore, the FasciaBlaster® is an essential to any workout regimen.
The FasciaBlaster® can also loosen the fascia that has tightened around the fat and forced it into a fat pocket. This is how you can “spot reduce” those pesky trouble areas that many thinks are impossible to get rid of. With the FasciaBlaster® you can target specific reaches (under the back, the additional layers, inward thighs, saddle packs, tummy “pooch”, and so on.) and truly shape the body.
Fascia doesn’t just affect the appearance of fat; it also affects the ability to mobilize fat (FasciaBlaster.com/blog/weight-loss). Let’s start with some very simple fat burning basics. We all know that diet and exercise are important, but think about the fact that all the systems of the body function via blood flow and nerve activity.
Breaking down fat and building muscle require BOTH! Fascia is also the also the encasing for the veins and nerves, so if the casing is restrictive; the blood flow and nerve activity will be somewhat restricted as well. If you take the time, energy, and effort to diet and workout, and you aren’t seeing results, tight fascia might be restricting your success—literally!
