It’s a classic, but it’s one of those that can really get your blood pumping.
And you’ll be hard pressed to find a better one on the internet.
But how do you get your muscles to work harder?
That’s what Dr Nick Larkin and his team at the University of Melbourne and the Australian Sports Physiotherapy Group at Ballarat University are trying to figure out with the facial exercise.
In this case, the goal is to increase the volume of the muscles working in a workout and make them work harder to create the illusion of greater strength.
“One of the reasons why we’re trying to do this is to help athletes who are struggling with injury or a lack of strength and muscle mass and the idea is to get them to be able to get into a gym where they can do a full-body workout,” Dr Larkin said.
“And that’s the main thing.
And the other thing is to try and give the athlete a more dynamic, higher-intensity workout that can allow them to recover.”
This is a video of Dr Nick’s facial exercise, with the assistance of a video trainer, Dr Tony Smith.
It’s one that’s going to make you want to go for a run, but Dr Laderts group is working to develop more specific exercises.
“The main thing we’re doing is to find the muscles that are able to be working optimally in a high-intensity way,” Dr Anderson said.
Dr Ladert’s team has used a treadmill-type exercise that’s similar to an elliptical exercise.
“We’ve actually got an elliptically-paced version of this,” Dr Johnson said.
It looks like the body is trying to recover the muscles after a workout.
But this exercise, like many that Dr Lakerts has developed, is very hard.
The goal, Dr Lager said, is to do it for 15 to 20 minutes.
And when you’ve done it for that long, you can feel the muscles starting to recover and start to build back strength.
The key to success is finding the right muscle group.
“You can have a high amount of muscles in a muscle group, and it will not allow you to build a muscle mass that’s really strong,” Dr Smith said.
“You can’t do that at all, so the muscle will start to lose strength.”
