What actually says is that after 6-8 hours daily tendons plateau in elongation. It is clear enough. Wishfull thoughts are not facts. You tend to make confusion between the two. A lot.
No confusion here. 6-8 hours of visoelastic elongation or creep before further elongation more or less stops. Something upon which your very own source comments on saying, “Creep deformation is not permanent, and the tendon will slowly resume its original length.”
My point is that this viscoelastic elongation causes your body to make more connective tissue depending on the magnitude of elongation, it is not in itself something that produces gains.
Marinera, I have never insulted your reasoning. If you would like to know more about fibroblastic connective tissue remodeling/synthesis, mechanotransduction, or viscoelasticity, just ask. I have been researching this stuff for almost a year working on a thorough description of connective tissue mechanics and growth processes. I would be happy to describe those things I mentioned in my above post in greater detail or provide references, I just didn’t have time to post the entire thing fully cited above - or I would have already posted it on the forum in its own post.
