In this mat workshop, Michael Johnson demonstrates how adding leg weights to your sessions can create a massive boost in muscle activation. You’ll learn a complete workout with loads of variations for hip strength, mobility, spinal extension and stability and so much more. Michael’s direct cues are so incredibly informative you’ll feel as if you’re there learning alongside him. Check out Michael’s Instagram page, where you can contact him to teach workshops or private lessons. Our thanks to The Art of Control™ in Stamford, CT where this was filmed.

    This Gentleman is quite special to my mind, in that he is probably the only Romana Trained Teacher, to the best of my knowledge, who has devoted so many years practicing and Teaching the Matwork. His understanding and capability is immediately apparent, as I follow him through on my mat with the 2lbs leg weights he has described. I am intrigued to learn his knowledge of the Anatomy of the movements, and how the exercises work within the body.
    One of the Best I have ever seen.
