Possible benefit from temporary change in LOT
I am wondering. Someone else has reported that while in workouts they experience a change in their LOT. I am wondering if using this change could be beneficial. I have been hanging OTS in my sets. Since BIB posted his LOT theory I have greatly benefited with the first gains I have had in 18 months. I have gained about a 1/2 in FSBPL and about the same in EBPL(THANK YOU BIB). My LOT has moved up a little bit from about 6:30 to 8, But what I experience is that if I do a OTS session for about 15 minutes and then for the last 5 minutes I do BTC I experience lig pull like I have never experienced. My ligs were begging for mercy at 10 pounds after only 5 minutes.
I am wondering, when it is said that someone has a low LOT like say 7 or lower then they should concentrate on applying stress on a plane above their LOT to stress the tunica. But is this said because it is no longer possible to stretch the ligaments? If it was possible to still apply stress to the ligaments and stretch them would this gain in the ligaments not be reflected in FSBPL? If someone with a low LOT was somehow still able to apply stress to the ligaments can they gain this way?
