Muscular Memory – is Real and How It Works?
Posted by cpaddon on May 15, 2017
Perhaps, any athlete, a fairly long time engaged in sports, is familiar with this concept. Thanks to so-called muscle memory, modern scientists were able to learn that a person who took a long break in workout and for this reason lost muscle tone, it is much easier to return past results than to an athlete trying to recruit them from scratch. Even with a high level of atrophy, the athlete is able to gain a relatively high muscular density.
The latest study, the main theme of which was muscle memory, allowed us to open the veil of secrecy in this matter. During these studies, scientists were able to analyze the distribution of HMC (heavy myosin compounds). Myosin, in fact, is the main component in the process of reducing muscle tissue (40-60 percent of the total number of all muscle proteins). Combining myosin with other types of proteins, for example, with actin or myofibril, it was possible to find out that the actomyosin formed in the process, is the main element in the process of contraction of muscle tissues.
Also, the components of the muscle fibers were examined, the scientists investigated the type of fibers their size and composition. Experiments, the main theme of which was muscular memory, were performed on elderly men with a sedentary lifestyle, men were divided into 2 groups; Those who have been training hard for several weeks and those who regained their form after a long rest.
Muscle fibers and research results.
For participants from the group intensively training, the content of HMC IX decreased from 9 to 2 percent, while the content of SCI IIA increased from 42 to 49 percent. Then, during a long rest, their level of SCI IIX exceeded, cured before and after the training process (about 17%). Scientists managed to prove that the second type of hypertrophy experienced by muscle fibers exceeds the norm after long training sessions and even after a prolonged rest, with a length of more than three months.
HMC can be attributed to muscle tissue of a shrinking variety – functional muscle fibers. HMC affects the muscle element, causing it to shrink violently, slowly contract or not to contract at all. Also, some SCIs have the ability to change or transform, as the effects of increased training.
In this case, it is impossible to determine the type of SCI, until the SCI begins its impact. After SCI is involved, they are classified as FCI IIAs. As a result, we get that muscle fibers containing protein, namely TCM IIX, are in their way reserve fibers, because Only they have the ability to quickly synthesize, during intense training.
Muscle mass and its features.
Actually, as in any more or less large study, the main theme of which was muscle mass, scientists managed to find out exactly what they expected. I turned my attention to this study because of the long-term changes in skeletal and muscle mass, during the period of intensive training. That’s what really was not expected, and what can actually make you wonder, is that a prolonged rest following intensive training, contributes to an increase, or so-called excess of the level of HMC IIX lysoform (their level is much higher, even compared with the period of training).
This is proved by the fact that the muscle mass in its majority is accessible to synthesis only during the rest period, and it is to that rest that follows the intensive training process. What I mean, and I mean to say that in fact all this research is nothing more than a confirmation of the logical memory of the muscular element.
Human muscles and the effect of training.
Of course, there are a couple of questions, the answers to which scientists have not been able to find. For example, it was not possible to measure the maximum HMC level. Although the explanation for this misunderstanding was still found, the scientists who studied muscles performed their measurements only at the beginning and end of the training process and at the beginning and end of the rest period. If the muscle measurements were carried out regularly, on an ongoing basis, this discomfiture would not have happened.
In fact, for athletes whose muscles are developed, for athletes interested in the latest news from the world of bodybuilding, these studies have become a kind of discovery in their own way. Let’s hope that the study of our body, muscles, under the influence of training will continue and we will be able to work out with them a couple of revolutionary training techniques.
