Fascia training is a special exercise program. It aims to mobilize the so-called fascia in the body. These are connective tissue structures that permeate the entire body. Among other things, they cover the organs and muscles like a thin skin. They harden and stick to the fascia, restrict mobility and cause pain. Read here which functions the fascia has, what fascial training can do and how to train the fascia effectively.ArtikelübersichtFaszientraining

Faszientraining - that's behind it
Fascia training has become a trend in recent years. But what exactly does fascia training mean?
Fascia is part of the connective tissue. In the form of elastin and collagen fibers, they span muscles, nerves and organs as silvery shells. Because they also connect bones, joints and even the brain, they are virtually omnipresent and affect many body functions.
Only when the fasciae are neatly aligned and filled with fluid, they glide smoothly past each other and movements succeed without effort. Stiffened, porous or adhesively bonded fascia make it immobile and tense and can cause considerable pain.
During fascial training, the matted connective tissue structures are broken up, loosened up and fill up with new fluid. This is to promote mobility, improve some athletic performance and even relieve pain.To the table of contents
Fascia training - the equipment
In fascia training courses and also at the Faszientraining training at home one uses frequently roles or balls from hard foam. The pressure on rolling is intended to release adhesions that occur when the body repairs small cracks in the matrix of the fascia.
Necessary are such aids but not, even common gymnastics exercises with resilient or oscillating micro-movements (lolling, wide lunges with upwards or laterally outstretched arms, etc.) have a positive effect on the fascia-fitness. Some experts are even convinced that special fascia training - with or without aids - is not necessary if you regularly perform dynamic stretching exercises.
