Example text

Primarily, passive restriction by muscles during SS is not supposed to result from contractile fibres, but as a result of membranes and fibres connecting sarcomere, which consist of long chains of proteins possessing no contraction capabilities, but having good stretchability. Titin protein has been shown to cause most resistance in the passive stretching of muscles. It forms the internal support fibres (endosarcomeric cytoskeletons) by transversely joining muscle fibres. Titin joins myosin filaments at the line (M-bridge) and travels transversely to join to the Z-line located at the ends.

S5 was held for 15 sec and repeated three times with IS-sec intervals between. Time between different stretches was 1 min. Stretching routine was repeated three times per week for 10 weeks. Forward reaching while in a sitting position improved by an average of 3 cm while the results of those in the control group, who did not stretch, remained the same. Stretching did not affect oxygen consumption. The study does not imply that stiffer muscles do not return more elastic energy for a given length change, but rather it implies that flexibility exercises did not alter stiffness in the study group.

Stiffness in general increases although the rate at which it develops may vary from joint to joint. Lack of exercise is a proven factor affecting the developmen t of stiffness in connective tissue and poor mobility in generaL Aging will weaken all aspects of muscle function: strength; speed; stamina; flexibility and coordination. Degeneration of the periphera l nerve supply in muscles and the central nervous system will weaken function, as does the shortening and depletion of muscle fibres. Muscle cells will be replaced by fat cells and fibrous connective tissue.
