Factors that Affect StrengthThere are different ways to measure muscle strength. There are variables like endurance, muscle coordination, and maximum force are some of the ways to assess the health and strength of the muscles. Factors that can influence strength include:
- Functional neural signal sending and the response of the muscle/s
- The number and size of the muscle cells
- The ability of the muscle/s to generate appropriate force
- The way the spinal cord responds to stimulation
- Being able to sense the joints moving in space
- The ability of the nervous system to coordinate proper movement and generate muscle force
Spinal AlignmentMuscle strength involves the nervous system. Muscle health is important, but the input and output of each muscle transmitting from the nervous system is the control center for proper movement and strength. When the connection is healthy and strong, the nervous system and brain can effectively generate movement and regulate the right amount of muscle strength. When increasing strength, the focus should be on proper nerve circulation, which starts with spinal alignment. It enhances the effectiveness of strength training. Even small changes/disruptions can lead to the spine shifting out of alignment. These changes over time begin to affect the signals being sent between the spinal cord, brain, and muscles.
- Increasing the intensity of the workout
- Exercising more
- Lifting heavier
- Increasing reps
- Boosting endurance
