Bye, bye cellulite - fascia training helps
by John Harris Fitness
Fascia training is the trend that is currently being sold to us as a rejuvenating cure for the whole body. What is it? Is it really the new miracle cure for unloved cellulite?
Not long ago, fascia, the human connective tissue, was completely disregarded in training. However, as we know today, the connective tissue is enormously important for our well-being. It is responsible for our flexibility as we age, protects tendons and ligaments, and avoids friction in joints. Fasciae thus protect our muscles and joints from injury. They are our elastic supporting skeleton, flexible and strong at the same time. They provide firmness and stability inside us. Over time, however, collagen production in the body diminishes, resulting in slackening of the tissue and an increased risk of injury. We're all familiar with the unsightly outward manifestations of weak connective tissue, stretch marks, cellulite and spider veins. It doesn't matter whether you weigh a few kilos or less, it is the number of collagen fibers under the skin, not your weight, that decides about orange peel skin.
Important for the formation of collagen fibers is sufficient vitamin C and lysine. If the body has too little of it, it is first used for vital processes and there is nothing left for external firmness. The new production can be positively influenced with alternating showers or special massages. To revitalize your connective tissue, however, the right training is also essential.
In our course "Dynamic Fascia Fit" you will learn the most effective exercises for your fascia workout, which is also really fun. Fascia training includes stretching and springy movements. It's about a holistic workout. The workout can be supported with a fascia roller, which can release internal adhesions and tensions and offer new training possibilities.
Fascia researcher Dr. Robert Schleip put it beautifully, "We are as old as our connective tissue," so let's go for a rejuvenating workout at one of our clubs.
