Acido Lactico ¿qué es el ácido láctico? El ácido láctico es un producto intermedio del metabolismo, principalmente del ciclo de los carbohidratos y deriva principalmente de las células musculares. (medinePlus Americana Acreditación HealthCare Commission, URAC: El Ácido Láctico (C3 H6 O3) es una molécula monocarboxílica orgánica que se produce en el curso del metabolismo anaeróbico láctico (glucólisis anaeróbica). El lactato o ácido láctico, es un producto orgánico que ocurre naturalmente en el cuerpo de cada persona. Dejando de un lado temas que no nos interesan, como composición química, historia de sus descubrimientos o como se sintetiza artificialmente, nos centraremos (de forma ligera), en las interacciones que provoca según la acumulación que tengamos en la sangre.

Hardcore Stretching - Part 2 by Mike Robertson In Part I, I discussed the rationale for adding static stretching into your program. I also gave you some specific tips to improve the quality of your stretching workouts. Now, on with the program! Now this wouldn’t be a true flexibility article if I didn’t give you some stretches to get you started. While the program given below is quite thorough, it doesn’t stretch every single muscle group. Beyond that, not every person is tight in the same area of the same muscle group. The calves are typically one of the most overactive muscle groups. To begin, pull the left toe up and press it against the wall. Tight hip flexors and hamstrings are the result of our activity-resistant society. Stand up straight with the chest held high and the hands on the hips. A lot of the lower back injuries I see are due to excessive tension and poor ROM in the gluteal muscle groups. Lie on your back and flex your right knee/hip to a 90 degree angle. Ever had a groin strain or tear?

Directions Enter daily Calorie goal amount. Results show exact number of Calorie and grams required for each nutrient. How Does This Work? If you have figured out your ideal daily calorie intake, the Macronutrient Calculator helps you convert this into grams of food. Food are grouped into Carbohydrates, Proteins, and Fats. Various diet regimes propose different ratios for each macronutrient. Figuring Out the Macronutrients in Food Packaged foods have nutritional information posted on them, but fresh foods or restaurant meals have to be figured out manually. However, there are a few great tools that do all the work for you. There are many other options. Do Macronutrients Matter? It's not all about calories.

Delayed onset muscle soreness Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), also called muscle fever, is the pain and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise. The soreness is felt most strongly 24 to 72 hours after the exercise.[1] It is thought to be caused by eccentric (lengthening) exercise, which causes microtrauma to the muscle fibers. After such exercise, the muscle adapts rapidly to prevent muscle damage, and thereby soreness, if the exercise is repeated.[2] Delayed onset muscle soreness is one symptom of exercise-induced muscle damage. Characteristics[edit] The soreness is perceived as a dull, aching pain in the affected muscle, often combined with tenderness and stiffness. Although there is variance among exercises and individuals, the soreness usually increases in intensity in the first 24 hours after exercise. Cause[edit] The soreness is caused by eccentric exercise, that is, exercise consisting of eccentric (lengthening) contractions of the muscle. Mechanism[edit]

"Well, you need to strengthen your rotator cuff." "It hurts when I reach overhead or do barbell presses." "You're probably impinging your rotator cuff." "I hurt my shoulder pitching and now I can't collect my million dollar performance bonus." "Sounds like you tore your rotator cuff." We've had it up to our shoulders with the rotator cuff! Allow us to introduce the real star of the show: the scapula! The scapula is our favorite bone and we're not afraid to admit it. When you really examine the scapulae (plural for scapula), one of the first things you'll notice is that it's position on the body, and it's function, are almost entirely determined by the function of the muscles attached to it. Class, what does all this mean? Protraction to retraction: 1.

What Causes Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness After Exercise Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) describes a phenomenon of muscle pain, muscle soreness or muscle stiffness that occurs in the day or two after exercise. This muscle soreness is most frequently felt when you begin a new exercise program, change your exercise routine, or dramatically increase the duration or intensity of your exercise routine. Although it can be alarming for new exercisers, delayed onset muscle soreness is a normal response to unusual exertion and is part of an adaptation process that leads to greater stamina and strength as the muscles recover and build hypertrophy). This sort of muscle pain is not the same as the muscle pain or fatigue you experience during exercise. Delayed soreness is also unlike the acute, sudden and sharp pain of an injury such as a muscle strains or sprain that occurs during activity and often causes swelling or bruising.

Primal, MD • Evidence-Based Practice: Coffee one hundred push ups You should be a little stronger than you were a couple of weeks ago and able to complete considerably more push ups than your initial test. If you managed 16-20 push ups in the latest test, follow column 1. If you completed between 21 & 25, column 2 is for you. More than 25 consecutive push ups? If you're struggling with the program, don't lose heart. Hopefully you made it safely through the third week and you're ready to move on to Week 4. Let's continue with the program take a look at Week 4.

For your muscles -- in fact, for every cell in your body -- the source of energy that keeps everything going is called ATP. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the biochemical way to store and use energy. The entire reaction that turns ATP into energy is a bit complicated, but here is a good summary: Because ATP is so important, the body has several different systems to create ATP. ATP comes from three different biochemical systems in the muscle, in this order: Phosphagen system Glycogen-lactic acid system Aerobic respiration Now, let's look at each one in detail. Phosphagen System A muscle cell has some amount of ATP floating around that it can use immediately, but not very much -- only enough to last for about three seconds. The phosphate group is removed from creatine phosphate by an enzyme called creatine kinase, and is transferred to ADP to form ATP. The cell turns ATP into ADP, and the phosphagen rapidly turns the ADP back into ATP. Glycogen Lactic Acid System Aerobic Respiration Overview
