Anaerobic respiration occurs during high-intensity exercises when your body works so hard there is a shortage of oxygen for energy consumption. Due to the shortage of oxygen, your body breaks down glucose and phosphates stored in your muscles for energy. The byproduct is lactic acid, which causes muscle fatigue. Due to lactic acid buildup, your muscles can only sustain anaerobic respiration for short periods of time. research has shown that lactic acid isn’t completely responsible for muscle fatigue and soreness as most conventional wisdom would state. However it does cause problems when trying to speed up recovery and it is extremely important to flush the system with blood and oxygen after repeatedly throwing a ball. this was the reasoning behind pitchers running long distance poles after pitching performances.
Now Lets Take A Look At Fasciae:
Mfascia (/ˈfæʃə/, /ˈfæʃiə/; plural fasciae /ˈfæʃᵻ.i/; adjective fascial; from latin: "band") refers to a band or sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.
Fasciae are normally thought of as passive structures that transmit mechanical tension generated by muscular activities or external forces throughout the body. the function of muscle fasciae is to reduce friction of muscular force. in doing so, fasciae provide a supportive and movable wrapping for nerves and blood vessels as they pass through and between muscles. fascial tissues - particularly those with tendinous or aponeurotic properties - are also able to store and release kinetic energy. this is utilized in fascia training. basically fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle. fascia supports and protects these structures. osteopathic theory proposes that this soft tissue becomes restricted due to overuse, trauma, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and corresponding diminished blood flow.
In the last few years, myofascial soft tissue release has become an extremely important part of athletics. myofascial release (or mfr) is a therapy that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles. it began with athletes who were doing high intensity workouts and needed to recover faster and take care of their bodies. today, no matter what sport you play, foam rollers, lacrosse balls and athletic trainers doing manual therapy is an integral part of the recovery process. every collegiate and professional sports team recognizes the importance of this and utilizes these tools on a daily basis.
It's Really Simple
After throwing a ball repeatedly, the layer of fascia surrounding the muscles get tight. The muscles begin to do anaerobic instead of aerobic respiration. This means there is a lack of oxygen and blood flow getting to the muscles. After a throwing session we began to wrap the players shoulder, bicep/tricep area as well as the forearm. The results were amazing. By compressing the fascia surrounding those muscle groups and releasing the wrap, it stimulates blood flow through the arm and flushes all of that buildup out. Our players felt amazing and began to ask for the wrap before and after every throwing session. Today we have some of the heathiest and hardest throwers in the country. Now that you understand the science behind 108 flushbands, pick one up so you can start throwing harder, healthier and more often.
108 flushbands are guaranteed to make you looser and recover faster but it is only a small part of the throwing activation and recovery process. Every performance you have on the mound or in the field is going to be watched and evaluated at some point. When you are ready to get serious. When you are ready to start preparing for high school, college and pro scouts to see your performances. When you are ready to find out how good you can be. Having a pre and post game process can eb an absolute game changer. Not only are you telling everyone watching that this isn't jsut a game for you, you are showing them that you are invested in your own development. You are showing them that they can count on you to do everything in your power to play healthy and keep yourself on the field. This will put you in a different category than everyone else. Baseball players spend most of their pregame screwing around and talking about girls. Be different. Put yourself in a position to succeed. When you are ready to invest in your own development and take your process to the next level, please see our activation and recovery manual. It is a comprehensive program designed to give you all the tools necessary to figure out how to get your body prepared.
