How does it work?
Well trained and developed inner muscles provide essential support for the spine and the shoulders.They also improve core stability, posture and leg balance , which results in smoother and stronger body movements. ASICS Inner Muscle is a breakthrough in Sportswear , and helps increase athletic performance through improved technique.
The difference between outer and inner muscle.
Outer muscles can be more easily developed and trained through traditional weight training and exercise. The bodies inner muscles, however , are hidden deep within the muscular-skeletal system and have the crucial role of stabilising the joints between the upper and lower body. These muscles are far more difficult to train and develop but just as important as they are in charge of the core stability of the body.
Why core stability is so important.
The ASICS Inner Muscle range improves sporting performance in many different ways. One of which is to target the core stability of the body. Here we’ve given you a quick run down of what exactly core stability is, so you now exactly how your inner muscle garments are helping you.
The body’s core stability is crucially important for effective sports performance and also staying injury free.
The deep rooted muscles of the trunk, pelvis, hips and abdominal muscles along with the smaller muscles that are located along the spinal column all work together, creating force used used to hold the body in the correct alignment and posture.
The body’s core muscles are tasked with providing a solid foundation for all movement. As these core muscles lie so very deep they are often neglected within regular training. Inner Muscle garments actively train these deeper muscles and therefore help to improve the core stability of the body.
Within the top:
The ASICS Inner Muscle top stabilises scapula movement, provides higher uper arm lift and, due to improved posture, sees an average of 5% increase in recorded breathing volume and oxygen intake efficiency.
The tops have a diamond shaped panel built into the upper back. This panel is made of a tighter two-layer system and pulls the shoulder blades subtly together, straightening the spine and enhancing posture.
Within the tights:
The ASICS Inner Muscle shorts improve spine shape, lengthen stride , increase ease of movement and effectively train the Psoas Magnus muscular-skeletal system, the Psoas Magnus is the key linking muscle between the lower and upper body.
The tight has an ‘H’ shaped panel located on the rear pelvic area at the points where the skin naturally stretches the most during exercise. This tighter area is continuously training the inner muscles of the lower body during exercise, contributing to greater joint stability and increased efficiency in movement of the lower limbs.
