is Muscle Memory Real?
Learn the Pros& Cons

 The myth that your muscles have memories is one of the most persistent in sports. But, is muscle memory real? Your muscles don't have brains, so they can’t remember anything. However, repeating a movement hundreds of times in a row does create fatigue—which decreases motor skills. The real process that occurs when you repeat a movement over and over is adaptation: Your body changes in response to exercise. To prevent the negative effects of repetition, change up your workouts and get better results!
