  • Muscle Activation

    So---can there be TOO MUCH muscle activation???

    I keep wondering if I'm activating "too much" and making it harder for my adrenals to recover.

    I was at the Grand Rapids clinic this weekend and Kat (the trainer) had this suggestion regarding adrenal fatigue:

    To address adrenal fatigue, PBS, Oil-Wells, and TTT stretches (not the entire TTT) work well because they drain the thoracic area which help heal adrenals. Only do these 3 moves until able to do more.

    Disclaimer: I was doing my best to pay attention, but may have misunderstood and have the wrong information in my notes. Trainers, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks Lori French for the PM on this one.

    I *knew* Nickole wrote it down! That is exactly what Kat said and also said that she got it directly from Teresa, because so many seem to be experiencing this.

    I wouldn't think you would want to activate less, then you would just be going through the motions and that won't get you anywhere.

    Seems a better option would to do less reps or just select moves as Nickole posted.

    Thanks for posting this! These moves could also be done on off-days and not stress out the adrenals.

    Keep in mind that there's muscle activation and there's going to 200% and "clenching" the muscles, so to speak. You don't need to go to 200%. It's easy for me to think I need to push myself harder since I'm a trainer, and then I end up wearing myself out.

    Thank you, Nickole (and Lori for giving you the "heads up"). Can these moves be done every day or EOD? It is so hard to not be discouraged that I can't get through MORE once or twice a week!

    Yes, Jennifer, these moves can be done every day. Be sure to do PBS first before doing any twisting movements (like TTT) to warm up the spine. Just listen to your body. If it feels like too much, just do PBS or even skip a day if necessary. That's the beauty of T-Tapp!

    Thanks so much, Vicki! And your previous response was what my concern was initially! I was really beginning to think that I was going just that little bit "too" much.
