Have you ever heard of this term “Nutritional Biomechanics”. I know I didn’t until I got involved in researching about The Stick. I have posted a description of this interesting subject below.
By the way, I am a firm believer that nutrition and sleep are the top variables that a person can monitor and directly control. Most of us a born with some combination of speed, endurance, flexibility and power. Some people can increase their abilities in one area, but not others, no matter how hard they try. Some level of improvement will be seen with training. However, advanced levels of achievement come with years of training and hard work. Sleep and nutrition are directly controlled on how we take care of our bodies. Imagine how much harder or how fast a person can recover with proper rest and nutrition?
The Stick helps to strengthen your muscles by employing Nutritional Biomechanics.
Here’s a short definition:
“In principle, Nutritional Biomechanics exploits the unique biomechanical relationship between muscle and its nutrient delivery system. Patient care for fibromyalgia syndrome, trigger point pain, muscle strain and delayed muscle soreness is especially magnified by supplementing the patient with a balanced nutritional drink 20-30 minutes prior to therapeutic stretching and massage. Such a protocol will insure that the blood entering the newly relaxed muscle is nutrient-dense. A full complement of nutrients will provide the raw materials needed for healing.”

As you can see, The Stick can really make a difference in how nutrition is used in the body. Basically, ingest some nutrient rich substance 20-30 minutes before you use The Stick, then roll out your muscles to increase circulation and blood flow.
