200: Understanding Muscular Assessment and Function: An Introduction to Muscle Activation Techniques™
As trainers, you’ve been exposed to several assessment techniques and training regimens that can simply be plugged in to any client’s program. Many of these concepts appear to be contradictory to one another and may leave you wondering how they all fit together. We will explore the physiological foundation behind MAT and the distinctive concepts that enable objective analysis of the information uncovered by current assessment practices. In addition, you’ll learn and practice techniques that will allow you to assess the contractile capability of muscles and their ability to handle force.
This course is an abbreviated version of the Muscle Activation Techniques’ Jumpstart (upper extremity) program.
