There are 2 types of muscle fiber in every muscle... skeletal and intrinsic fiber. 33% of all muscle fiber is intrinsic muscle fiber.
Tight intrinsic fiber creates instability & dysfunction. STANDINGFIRM® rotation activates intrinsic fiber rebooting muscle spindles for optimal muscle function.
While skeletal muscle fiber is about strength. Intrinsic fiber is about movement.
Skeletal muscle fiber makes us bigger and stronger...intrinsic muscle fiber improves timing and coordination.
Skeletal muscle fiber is contracting muscle fiber. Intrinsic muscle fiber is proprioceptive muscle fiber.
Injuries, over-use and muscle imbalances turn-off intrinsic muscle fiber and lead to muscle tightness.
The only way to restore the tight proprioceptive muscle fiber is to activate intrinsic muscle with diagonal isometric force.
