Consideration 3: Excitation 04:30

Following Fluid Dynamics and Small Motor Unit Recruitment, the 3rd step in our Activation protocol is Excitation.

Excitation involves a rapid turning on and off of both phasic and tonic muscles with focus on being able to quickly turn off. This improves neuromuscular sensitivity, proper rhythm and timing around a joint or series of joints and increases sympathetic tone, preparing the body for stressful exercise.
