5 Ways MAT can help your body feel better

Traditional training and performance training sessions have a very similar outlook on how to get strong, that is to increase strength you must increase the weight that you are pushing. In other words, to increase the strength of your bench press you have to push more weight. Now, while that is true, we have to understand that there is a communication that goes from the brain to the muscles to tell it to contract and also to let go. This is where Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) comes in, think of a MAT Practitioner as the electrician for your body.  A MAT  

Practitioner helps increase the communication between the brain and the muscle which helps increase the strength and stability of that muscle, and in turn, this increases the overall strength of that muscles function. 

The good news: MAT training and Certified CES can identify weak muscles or those that aren’t properly communicating with the brain, and walk you through exercises that target those very specific areas. Fixing the way that muscles contract and more evenly distributing work among muscles in a group can do a lot for the body. Here are five things you can expect from MAT training

1. Increased Strength

Train Smart Method Strength TrainingYou’re not working at your full potential if all of your muscles aren’t communicating effectively with your brain. If only 50 percent of your muscles are functioning correctly, then you could literally double your strength with implementing M.A.T and Corrective Exercise Specialist training into your Strength Training program.

2. Improved Coordination

Your brain wants to keep your body safe from injury, but in doing so it sometimes formulates “blind spots” in the way you move. Your brain tells your body to use the strongest muscles to get from point A to point B, even if those muscles don’t function together in a clean line of movement. MAT helps strengthen the muscles that move in a direct path, making your movements quicker and more coordinated.

3. Improved Flexibility

4. Lower Risk of Injury

MAT increases stability by strengthening weak muscles. If you find yourself landing wrong in a sport, you’ll be much less likely to tear a muscle or injure yourself. MAT may just save your ACLs! 

5. Less Pain

Pain is usually the result of long-term muscle dysfunction or bad movement patterns that have been repeated for years.
