CNS (Central Nervous SysteM)
What is your CNS or Central Nervous System? The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. It is referred to as “central” because it combines information from the entire body and coordinates activity across the whole organism.
Here are some key points about the central nervous system.
- The CNS consists of the brain and spinal cord.
- The brain is the most complex organ in the body and uses 20 percent of the total oxygen we breathe in.
- The brain consists of an estimated 100 billion neurons, with each connected to thousands more.
- The brain can be divided into four main lobes: temporal, parietal, occipital and frontal.
On muscle building, you should understand that the stronger your CNS connection is with a muscle, the more you can stimulate a muscle to grow. Some of your muscles will already have a strong CNS connection because you’ll be able to feel them work when you train, others won’t and you’ll notice you never really feel a deep burn there. A couple ways to teach our muscles to be more responsive is to train more isolation exercises which really pinpoints the muscles individually instead or larger groups. The other way is to add intensity to your workouts, keep form good with shorter rest periods in between each set.
It’s important to remember this doesn’t happen overnight, time and patience are two big factors nobody likes to mention, but you must have patience. Your body isn’t a machine it has to slowly adapt itself and grow.
