Muscle Fever After Workout




Muscle Fever:

If it happens to have muscle fever after a workout doesn’t mean you trained wrong, the contrary is a sign that muscle has been stimulated in a new way and they will grow. So, muscle fever can be considered a good indicator of an effective workout.
Let’s get little more details for those interested in the subject. There are several types of muscle fevers and several theories related to them. Each type of fever is caused by another type of stress imposed on muscle and theories issued by specialists say that each has a different impact on muscle growth. How to get muscle fever?
The most common type of muscle soreness is caused by a new exercise, which runs more or from a new angle the muscle fibers subjected to effort compared to previous exercises. An extreme stretching, under the effort, can induce a feeling of muscle soreness immediately, and you will feel more at the ends of muscles, tendons and less near the middle of the muscle.
As a general rule, you should know that the higher the muscle fever is located on the middle of muscle's, which is more to the tendons, means that the exercise was slightly less stimulating in terms of muscle mass. But you will be stimulated than if you miss muscle fever.
A feature of muscle soreness caused by stretching the muscles in a new way or a new angle (with a new exercise) during exercise is that if you repeat the same exercise, next time with even more weight, the new fever muscle will be much diminished in intensity or completely eliminated.
Studies have shown that if a similar stimulus (exercise) is repeated two times in a row, the muscles become immune to it. This is because muscle fibers were most stressed were developed to handle the new stress and are not so vulnerable. In essence, this is the easiest type of muscle fever gained, you must change only exercises with some that were not used for a long time or have never been used but is a less productive muscle fever.
Best exercises for getting this type of muscle fever are obviously those that require a lot of muscle to stretch during exercise: straightening bar with legs straight and close to the neck, and waving with dumbbells for chest are good examples.
Muscle fever induced by negative reps is better since you know muscle was stimulated to grow more than in the case of muscle fever caused by new stretching exercises or a new angle.
This is because stress is present again the entire length of the race, not only at its ends, as described above.
This type of fever does not disappear so quickly, as described in the first case if you repeat the workout. This means that the muscles have more difficulty in adapting to this type of stimulus that is stronger.


There will be muscle fever to muscle ends, but the most will be affected the center of muscles, which is a good sign. In general, exercises with dumbbell are more traumatic for muscles and therefore more effective as the pulley exercise or any other executed at the gym devices.

During exercises on machines or pulley, the resistance muscle is linear, i.e. constant over the entire length of the exercise, while exercising with the dumbbell the resistance opposite muscles decreases or increases during movement.

The best example is the flexible bar for biceps. When the bar is down, biceps effort is minimal. Increases as the bar go to the point where your forearms are parallel to the ground and then start to decline as they climb exceeding that point. Why cheating execution is so efficient at this exercise is that in descending muscle trauma is much increased due to increased speed brutal, with a condition to make a minimal effort to slow the movement. In essence, by cheating can use more weight for more reps, which will be felt on the negative movement.

Muscle fever generated by free weights is superior to that generated by machines or pulley exercises. A source of muscle fever is the lactic acid generated by a large number of repetitions. This accumulation during exercise is indicated by a strong burning muscle.

If you do super series, for example, using average weight, which you can do 10-12 reps, accumulation of lactic acid in muscles will be significant and you will have a muscular fever. This form of muscle fever induced by this strategy is very different from that induced by mechanical trauma techniques that generate small muscle tears. You will feel this fever in the middle of muscles, which can be good for muscle stimulation.

The most productive form of muscle fever is considered that induced by (the weight) on the positive movement. If you manage to get a muscular fever generated by such a stimulus, forcing the muscles to contract so strong (stronger than in the past), it means you automatically triggered a major increase in those muscles.

Keep in mind that muscular fever can be dangerous since too much can be a negative factor, while a moderate level must be obtained or sought vigorously.

Do not forget that it’s not recommended to train a muscle when it’s affected by muscle fever since this means whether there are lactic acid or the microtrauma generated by the previous workout is not healed yet.
