Slothy Exercises - Smart Physiology For Easy Exercise
Still under construction - but, we'll be discussing a routine (& methods) for easy, no huffing & no pain exercises using walking & resistance bands. There are smart ways to warm-up, stretch, flush, strengthen, recruit muscle & recover for improving everyday activity - all to avoid trauma, soreness & spilling your coffee/tea onto your pyjamas.
Below are two video snippets from Dr Sten Ekberg & Dr. Doug McGuff. These videos discuss manageable intense exercise & the role of muscle in health .
The use of momentary muscular failure (MMF) is explained. It doesn't mean causing trauma, sprains, pain, etc. To be clear, MMF during exercise means either feeling a lactic acid build-up or loss of smooth movement (not pain). MMF also includes (though NOT recommended) being unable to commence/complete a movement.
>Dr Sten Ekberg - Types of resistance training (Apologies, awaiting update)
I (me, Gabriel) personally use elastic resistance bands to perform Slow Loaded Intense Movement (SLIM). Resistance bands allow safe exercise by slow loading & slow movement of muscles. It is a controlled method of reaching MMF. This method gives enough intense movement to enable myokine signaling & growth hormone release. These factors promote health & mild muscular hypertrophy (increased mass).
