This week on the Exercise Is Health podcast, Julie and Charlie sit down with Kirk Bradshaw of Athletic Training Institute (ATI) in Bellevue, WA. Kirk and the team of coaches at ATI utilize Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT®), resistance training, and other modalities – including their ADAPT facility – to “callus” their clients’ neuromuscular system to environmental and life stressors. Kirk discusses this “callusing” concept, its role in preventing injury and disease, and how it allows the clients at ATI to live as active of a life as they would like. Check out all of the details in this week’s episode!
