I watched your YouTube video on GTO. One point I wanted to get clarified. If GTOs are found in muscle tendon junction why would you do work on muscle belly to stimulate it ?

GTO’s respond to tension where spindles respond to length changes. The mm belly is where most of the tension occurs. Also, by working in the belly, you have a longer lever arm for stimulation and since they are higher threshold, this seems to work better.

Hope that helps. The Gait Guys.
