PUBLISHED in the Journal of Sports Sciences! @dr.robyncapo you queen!!!
It’s like this. Rolling on #yogatuneupballs in combination with stretching gives an increase in range of motion AND a surprising boost in maximum voluntary contraction (MVC torque). ___
Doc. Capobianco used @tuneupfitness#yogatuneupballs in this study that looked at rolling PRIOR to stretching and found that the rolling overcame the force deficit that stretch creates.
She also studied MIDDLE AGED adults, not just college kids. There is almost no data on your mom and dad, but now we know, the findings are not isolated to healthy young adults.
Robyn also found that rolling significantly increased torque in ONLY the group that rolled. This means that rolling prepares the muscles to do some work...Hey, it’s ok to roll as a warm up prior to movement/exercise/workout/performance. You’re not going to LOSE force production, you’ll actually going to GAIN motor control and optimize your system.
So psyched for these findings. I know the study well, as I read a draft many months ago and attended her PhD defense along with her husband @fasciadoc

Marshmellow Fellow the Cat supervises my afternoon Backyard Pilates Ball Workout. Take your time to breathe into the back body when you drape over the Ball, and draw it into your lap--it's a great "traction action" moment! Once you shoot out to Plank, the Knee Ups and Circles give you a great obliques workout! (See Bio for more info registration for my online Ball Workshop)
