Facial Muscles – Exercise or Build ?
The majority of facial exercise programs today are either toning exercises (Isotonic – no use of hands) or the simple anchoring of muscle (holding the muscle in place) before contracting. FlexEffect Facialbuilding offers progressive resistance training as found in bodybuilding; hence the name Facialbuilding®. This type of training calls for elongating the muscle before you contract it; giving you what is known as a concentric contraction*, more importantly, Facialbuiuilding also uses eccentric contractions* commonly know as negative-phase training. This particular type of contraction renders huge results. The combination of these two types of muscle contractions offers the trainer maximum potential for building muscle.
FlexEffect Facialbuilding is an extension of bodybuilding so not unlike bodybuilding it addresses far more than the mere building of muscle, Facialbulding also targets what is probably the most aging phenomenon of all… facial bone atrophy and the breakdown of collagen and elastin.
*eccentric contraction: When the resistance is greater than the force generated by the muscle i.e., the individual fibers of the muscle contract but the force (pull) is so great the muscle actually lengthens.
*concentric contraction: When the force of the muscle contracting is stronger than the applied resistance.
