History In The Making
As the author of the Roskopf Principle and the founder of Muscle Activation Techniques, he not only developed the MAT modality but also created a curriculum for this technique that has been taught to students all across the globe. Greg has over two decades of experience applying MAT to his clients and professional athletes, and developing students into competent and respected practitioners nationally and internationally.
The Development Of Muscle Activation
Other methods attempt to relax the muscles to lengthen or change them by stretching, heating, kneading, or foam rolling. In contrast, MAT activates your muscles so that they will become better prepared to handle the force applied to them through everyday movements and exercise. The MAT method helps the muscles hold the bones in alignment which improves mobility and reduces pain.
Cause & Effect
Jumping forward, today we see the results of his research in the modality we now call Muscle Activation Techniques. This systematic process is designed to evaluate and correct the muscle imbalances that contribute to chronic pain, injury and altered performance levels.
