What is Muscle Activation Techniques?

The goal of Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) is to optimize muscle function so that your body is able to better tolerate external forces or stress. A MAT assessment is step number one in ensuring that you are ready for performance training.

The MAT assessment targets asymmetries in range of motion from left to right. Without addressing this naturally occurring dysfunction, strong muscles get stronger and the weak get weaker. Training without the right foundation only magnifies these muscle imbalances, causing potential injury and slowing progress towards your goals.

In order to run faster, jump higher, and perform better, the muscular system needs to be optimized. Muscle Activation Techniques is the solution, giving us the ability to address muscle dysfunction to help your body work at peak efficiency.

Muscle Tightness May Indicate A Need for Muscle Activation Techniques

Muscle pain or tightness is oftentimes a signal that there is another underlying problem with your body. When you experience muscle tightness, it may indicate that one of your muscles on the opposite side of the painful muscles is weak or inhibited.

When your muscles are weakened, the opposing muscles will tighten as a protective mechanism to prevent you from going into a range that is or may be unstable. Once the function of your weakened muscles is restored, the body will give you all the range you need for peak performance.
