Every muscle in your body is enclosed with connective tissue fascia.. Fascia keeps the muscles in place over time training, ye our muscles grow but nothing happens to the fascia. There is no protein powder that targets fascia growth and your muscles grow until they become too compressed along the fascia. At this point your muscles are limited in growth by the rate of expansion of the fascia, which is very slow compared to what it could be. Stretching can also be overlooked by the fact that some may think it seems to decrease muscular size… like you just finished an arm workout your arms are pumped, they’re a inch bigger, you look boss last thing you want to do is rid yourself of that feeling by stretching. We all know that pumped feeling doesn’t last long at all the blood and lactic acid leaves your arms. …Because of the intense workout and no stretching your arms stay in a semi-contracted state for hours and this very slightly decreases the range of motion in your arms …So Multiply this by 500 arm workouts and imagine how much range of motion you lose. and in 4 /5 years time you could scratch your middle back but today you rub your back against a corner wall. It not because you’ve gained muscle, it’s because you lost flexibility. Think about the importance of all aspects of what stretching and gaining and maintaining flexibility does for your body in the long run!
