Muscle Activation Brighton Getting to the root of pain and muscle tightness.
Do you have inactive Glutes?
Are you suffering from inactive Glutes...?
If your Glutes are inhibited it doesn't matter how many Bridges, Clamshells or other so called "Glute Activation" exercises you do, they'll remain inhibited until you get them properly activated with an intervention such as Muscle Activation Techniques® or MAT® for short...
My client Anna had inhibited Glutes for years despite training them frequently with all kinds of exercises - until now, after about 10 minutes of MAT® treatment they're finally working!
BEFORE: Anna's right side Glutes were not firing and she could barely lift her leg off the table (approx. 7° at best!)
AFTER: I treated all 3 divisions of her Glutes and her Glute Medius Posterior fibers which took less than 10 minutes and her mobility increased by 2.5 times. We still have 7 more muscles related to hip extension to treat so I'm expecting even more range of motion will be achieved by the end of next session.
You may have been struggling to get your Glutes firing despite doing endless Glute Bridges, Clams, Donkey Kicks, Bird Dogs and so on...
The reason is because there's a piece of the puzzle (an initial step that's absolutely essential *before* doing all this other stuff) that almost everyone is missing, even most Physios!
The term "Muscle Activation" is very loosely used in the fitness and rehab world and can mean a whole bunch of different things to different people but the common methods used to "activate" muscles yield mostly short term results at best (short term potentiation) and over the long term usually only reinforce compensation patterns (the strong muscles get stronger whilst the inhibited muscle stay weak and the muscle imbalances are magnified).
Whether you have inactive Glutes or not, you might be interested to find out the root cause of pain and muscle tightness and how to fix it, so why not come along to my event on the 20th July to learn all about true "Muscle Activation" and discover the techniques that we MAT® Specialists use on a daily basis to get clients back to pain free exercise.
