Week 9, Day 6: After a full week of doing isometrics, working out on the elliptical trainer and my first 3 mile run, I am super pumped about getting a bit more aggressive with the training, now that the shoulder’s a lot more stable and feeling good. Today I went in to see Ian, my athletic therapist for another MAT session. Going in, I was able to move my arm about 175 degrees but whenever I lifted my arm overhead I had problems keeping my elbow from coming out to the side. After an hour of treatment, not only was I able to move my arm a full 180 degrees, but I was also able to keep it straight when reaching overhead so that the side of my arm would touch my ear. To say the effects of Muscle Activation Techniques are incredible and far reaching is an understatement. I’m a believer!
Time to party~
