Passive Training is something that sounds impossible within traditional patterns of what we mean by training. And it is because we often associate the train exercise and physical activity in order to develop and increase the size of our muscles, without going too deeply into other options for training.
But the truth is that there are many ways to work the body and Passive Training is an important alternative to consider. Also known as Regeneration Training, Passive Training works muscles at a less intense pace than usual, aimed at muscle contraction and elongation through work with stretching and flexibility development. This kind of training should be included in basic routines of exercise at least once or twice a week, and is highly recommended for senior, pregnant women and in general for all who want to work the body in a less intense form.
Stretching in a Passive Training can be of two types: Passive Stretching where your own body weight is used to stretch certain muscles to increase its of motion; and Active Stretching working opposing muscle contraction through certain muscles to generate a balanced muscle response.
The greatest contribution of Passive Training is that it helps return blood flow to the muscles, cleaning it of waste and toxins, providing nutrients and oxygen. It is essential that this type of training, like any other, is combined with proper nutrition and rest, so that we can get the maximum benefit.
From Valtrum we invite you to test the benefits of passive training, oxygenate your muscles and pamper your body, always with conscience, moderation and seeking an integral state of wellness.
