Welcome back to this week’s edition of 2-Minute Tuesdays where we are talking about one exercise topic for two minutes and giving you three reasons why you should follow our advice. Now this week, we are talking to those of you who are about to hit the links with your golf game. What can Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT®) do to help you with your golf swing in order to make sure that your game is as smooth as can be?
1) MAT® Can Assess & Address Your Muscles
Tip number one – MAT® is a fabulous tool to help you assess and address muscle imbalances that you have in your body that may be affecting your trunk rotation. If you are a golfer, you know that trunk rotation and rotation through your spine are so important for golfing. Make sure the muscles that are supposed to help you do that are well-maintained!
Action Step: Connect with your local MAT® practitioner here to get your trunk, hips, shoulders, knees, and feet assessed so you can have all of your muscles working well.

2) MAT® Can Help Your Joints Move Better
Tip number two – the goal of MAT® is to figure out where your muscles are not working as well as they should. When your muscles start working better, your joints are going to be able to move better. So, the cool thing about incorporating MAT® with your golf game is your swing is going to be so much smoother when your joints are moving better.
