Is Muscle Memory REAL?

Yes and no. There is no literal memory in the muscles, but the thing people call “muscle memory” exists, though the name is a misnomer. What is Muscle Memory Anyways? When you strengthen your muscles (even if the last time you strength trained was in high school) your muscles, which are made of multinuclear cells, grow.
The more you strengthen them, the more they grow in size. When you stop working out, you have what’s called ‘muscle memory’. Actual muscle memory. While this research is still in the early phases, it joins other studies that have found evidence of muscle “memory.”. Last year, a study that involved eight human.
Muscle memory is real, but it’s probably not what you think. The term can refer to two different things. Many have said there is no such thing as muscle memory.
However, research is now showing that it does exist and how helpful it can actually be. Muscle memory is a bit of a misnomer, since the muscles themselves do not remember anything. Muscle memory really refers to us storing memories of muscle motion.
It is also called Motor Memory. We do have special facilities in the brain to “chunk” motions into groups of motions and memorize these groups of motions together. Muscle memory is definitely real. Pro players are super experienced with their hand-eye coordination, so they can apply that universal experience to any sensitivity. It is better to stick with one sensitivity though.
Muscle tissue does not have a “memory” of past exercise training, new research suggests. Muscles that have trained hard in the past and those that have not trained show similar changes in. Yes it’s real. I think the major contributor is polynucleation. Basically the size of your muscle cells is limited by how many nuclei they have in them (it’s crazy but each of your muscle cells has multiple nuclei-“polynucleated”).
When you build muscle, you force your muscle cells to build more nuclei. Muscle memory is the act of completing a particular physical or mental task with such repetition that your body then learns to complete the task more efficiently, using less brain power.
