Resting Tenstion Question for Pavel

Joel Marion

New member
There has been a very heated debate (on a particular
bodybuilding forum) about resting muscle tension (i.e. tone) being improved through heavy training as you have stated on many occasions. I have experienced the phenomenon first hand, and know it is possible (but many others don't). Do you have an specific studies to validate this and/or could you possible explain in a very scientific manner as to how to alteration in "resting" tension can be achieved.

There is no debate that tension will be increased during the lift, but many individuals are of the opinion that alterations in "resting" tension are not possible.

Again, thank you for your time. I have read much of your work and it has greatly affected my training.
