Passive to Active Tissue Lengthening


Passive to Active Tissue Lengthening

Brian Fox


[Description below.]


Affect connective tissue architecture by training at length for 2+ minutes.

Intent: Passively acquire length then actively try to maintain that length and internally load the bioflow. Straining the connective tissue at length.

A two minute stretch specifically intended for the anterior knee and thigh in hip extension and knee flexion. Followed by two sets of RALs efforts (passive range liftoffs) to maintain length of the anterior thigh. Loading the bioflow continuously by rotating my tibia relative to the femur. Trying to use as much tissue as possible in order to maintain knee flexion (length of the anterior thigh).

*Training time was 4min. Video speed sped up.*
