OsteoStrong technology has been shown to trigger bone density growth, but why does this matter to an athlete? Other than protection from fractures, skeletal strengthening in many cases eliminates limitations to plateaus and muscle growth.
The central nervous system has a self-protecting process called neural inhibition. This process keeps muscles from engaging if a voluntary action is causing pain or discomfort. Under the high-impact activities, the central nervous system limits muscular power to protect the skeletal system and joints. The best way to illustrate this is by clenching one’s fist or flexing the muscles to their maximum potential. Under no circumstances can an individual break their own bones. Neural inhibition will not permit it.
As many have seen with OsteoStrong, bone density can be brought to levels more than two standard deviations above what is considered to be normal. This means your body has a more powerful frame, will allow more muscular engagement and thereby more muscular strength and power.
Consider this illustration. When comparing a Formula 1 race car to an economy car, other than the engine, there is a stark difference between the frame of each car. The framework of the economy car simply cannot support the power of the Formula 1 racing engine. In much the same way, the central nervous system will not permit the muscular system to become stronger than what the skeletal system can handle.
