    The fasciae stretch with these exercises.

    But what does the musde tissue do? Does it stretch too?

    For instance, the arm is extended out to the side, the fasciae stretched, or smoothed by Bruce – and the arm gets ‘longer’ or reaches its proper extension.

    But does muscle tissue stretch too? Or is it really the inter-penetrative fasciae that do all the stretching in ‘muscle stretching’ ?

    Thank you.

    Dan.

    Short answer the muscles are deactivating and stretching in relation to what give the muscle fibers have.
    Long answer there is no clear divide between muscle and connective tissue just the percentage of make up. A muscle unit is a contractive segment held together by the lengthening fascia. stretching will separate muscle fibers within a unit by breaking down and reorganizing the connective tissue between them this allows the muscle fibers to distribute more evenly along the plane of movement. This over time makes the muscle longer in that direction when at rest.

    A visual and simple explanation might help. Try this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdRqLrCF_Ys
