Six Pack ABS Muscle Building
The process of muscle growth is essentially your body’s response to the stress of ABS training. When you perform resistance exercise such as Six Pack ABS Training, micro tears occur in your muscles. Your body responds to this ‘microtrauma’ by overcompensating. The damaged tissue is repaired and keep adding to become bigger and stronger so that the risk of future damage is minimized. This means you need to steadily increase the intensity of workout, because your muscles can quickly adapt to deal with the stress which they have been exposed. The damage to the muscle fibers is the reason for delayed muscle soreness resulting pain and stiffness in days after tough workout. That’s why you should rest at least 48 hours between session for the targeted muscle group. If you train those muscles again before they’ve had time to repair and rebuild, it will results in reduced gains and causes injury.
Stages of Six Pack ABS Muscle Building
As your heart rate increases, blood is pumped into your muscles, warming them up and allowing them to extend fully. The blood also supplies oxygen to the muscle fibres.
From the starts of Rep, your muscles are under tension and stretched. As a result more blood is pumped into the protective sheaths of the muscle fibres , supplying even more oxygen and nutrients.
As you workout such as Six Pack ABS training, your central nervous system relays this to the nerves in the sheaths around the muscle fiber, triggering the fiber to contract. Your muscles should activate in specific sequence, which your nervous system adapts. As you repeat the workout, your nerves get more efficient, allowing to do more . This is the first adaptation caused by the workout.
Adenosine triphosphate(ATP) is the immediate energy source for this muscle contractions. It is broken down within the body cells to release energy.The cells creatine, phosphate and glycogen reserves are also converted into ATP.Lactic acid is a by product of this process.
5.Feel the burn
Once the glycogen stores in your cells have been depleted and lactic acid starts to build up, the muscle can’t work efficiently at this point, so you have to rest.As you do so, aerobic(oxygen base) muscle respiration occurs, processing the lactic acid back into glycogen to propel energy for next set.
As you reach failure on the last set of given exercise, your stretched ABS muscle fibres are in fatigue mode. Micro tears occur in the myofilaments, the smallest fiber bundles in your muscle.
7.Repair and Growth
Your muscles start to grow during the post ABS workout repair process. Your body fixes the microtears by adding amino acids actin and myosin to the myofilaments, which causes them to grow. Your muscles adapt to store more glycogen too, providing more energy for next workout session.Your six pack ABS muscles increase in size.
Anatomy Of Muscle
1. TENDON Strong tissue that connects muscle to bone.
2. EPIMYSIUM A layer of connective tissue that encases the entire muscle.
3. ENDOMYSIUM Connective tissue that covers the muscle fibers and also contains capillaries (tiny blood vessels) and nerves.
4. PERIMYSIUM A layer of connetive tissue that bundles together between ten and several hundred individual muscle fibers to create facicle.
5. FASCICLE A bundle of individual fibers
6. MYOFILAMENTS The smallest fiber bundles, made up of sarcomeres which the basic unit og muscle.
7. MUSCLE FIBER Two types of Fibers: Slow Twitch which is more endurance and slow to fatigue; Fast Twitch is suited for fast and explosive movements, quick to fatigue.
8. BLOOD VESSEL There are 3 types of blood vessels: Arteries are responsible for transporting oxygenated blood from the heart to the tissues and organ; Capillaries enable the exchange nutrients and waste products between the blood and tissues and Veins which transport deoxygenated blood from capillaries back to the heart.
