It is unique because it works to “activate” weak muscles, rather than trying to make tight muscles relax. MAT does not force change on the body, but instead works with it to improve strength and flexibility so normal range of motion can be restored. It is an exercise method that tests for individual muscle weakness and when found, activates them through a simple technique to restore both their flexibility and strength. The goal of MAT is to improve the contractile capability of muscles to enhance athletic performance and to prevent injuries.
Bryson DeChambeau and MAT
If you are looking for ways to improve your strength and stability MAT is an excellent option that works on improving both of these aspects. MAT is can also be extremely beneficial for golfers as it works on improving the flexibility and stability that is necessary to have a strong swing.
MAT works perfect on rotational sports like golf since it targets and improves specific muscles required for a powerful and consistent golf swing. This tool improves your golf swing by increasing overall body flexibility, mobility, stability and strength all in one session. The hip pivot or hip rotation is a fundamental movement in your golf swing. MAT increases hip flexibility and strength producing better trunk and shoulder rotation resulting in faster clubhead speed in your golf swing. If the muscles are working effectively, they produce coordinated lower body stability, stronger core and faster clubhead speed resulting in longer ball distance. MAT restores the range of motion (ROM) and strength at these areas creating proper body movements during the backswing and transition making lag a natural by product.
MAT is a great way to improve your overall health and get you back to doing what you love.
