Eccentric training positively affects the strengthening of tendons. It is a strong stimulus to improve muscle mechanical functions and morphological and architectural adaptations of the muscular and tendonous units. Strong connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) increases resistance to injuries.
Static stretching increases mobility temporarily and can be injured. Using eccentric training with load, muscles stretch and also improve their movement in the fascia, while increasing mobility in joints more effectively than in classical static stretching.
In addition, inertial exercises improve the performance of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, without charging them at the same time.
Eccentric exercises are effective in treating, among others, damage to tendons. Oxygen consumption in tendons or ligaments is 7.5 times smaller than in skeletal muscles. A low metabolic rate causes the tendon to heal after injury. Inner work requires less oxygen consumption than concentric work, which is why eccentric exercises can be ideally suited for the rehabilitation of tendinopathy.
TestYou GYRO is a great tool for rehabilitation, because it strengthens the tendons, improves the range of mobility in the joint and positively affects the nervous system. Thanks to it, we are able to not only prevent injuries, but also to optimize the regeneration and rehabilitation of illnesses.
