Alright….maybe badass isn’t the appropriate description for these products.
None of them are going to smack you around for being a pair of idiot skinheads starting trouble on a public bus.
But they will help you :
- make your feet work better
- reduce associated pain
- pack on muscle faster than cheap internet steroids
Dr. Ray McClanahan (podiatric physician) believes that the best way to treat most foot problems is by allowing the foot to function exactly as nature intended. Unfortunately, the shoes you are wearing right probably don’t do that. This realization is why so many people are giving barefoot / minimalist shoes a try. Unfortunately, if you have been wearing “normal” shoes for most of your life, switching to a barefoot shoe isn’t going to fix your feet.
This is where the Correct Toes spacer can help. They are designed to spread your toes into their natural and correct position…improving “proprioception, which then allows the brain to better promote balance and optimal muscle function”.
Paired with a quality pair of barefoot / minimalist shoes, Correct Toes returns your foot to its natural state, treating most foot problems, and by extension, many musculoskeletal problems.
Sidewalk Surfers from Sanuk
There is no point in buying the Correct Toes spacer and fixing your gnarly old feet if you’re going to keep shoving them into a pair of “normal” shoes and scrunching them together like some masochistic Chinese foot binding experiment. What you need to do is buy a pair (or two) of barefoot / minimalist shoes that allow your feet to move as they were originally intended.
And that’s one of the reasons why I have been wearing a pair of Sanuk Chibas all summer long.
Some of the other reasons are…
- they are comfortable as heck,
- can be worn on the beach AND with casual clothes,
- they look pretty darn good
- and they come with an antimicrobial additive…meaning they won’t stink after hours and hours of barefoot wear.
A few months back, I started working with two different 40+ year old clients who wanted to add some muscle to their “slender” physiques. In addition to a complete restructuring of their diets and an introduction to a truly nasty training program, I put them both on Gaspari Nutrition’s SizeOn product.
Instead of taking a bunch of different products, I wanted one supplement that would service their workout endurance demands as well as help them pack some meat on their hardgainer bodies. And SizeOn turned out to work perfectly.
Both clients had already started gaining muscle with SizeOn, but when we added it into the mix, things really took off.
- Both gained significant muscle mass
- Subject #1 gained 14 lbs of muscles while losing 7 lbs of fat
- Subject #2 gained 11 lbs of muscle while losing 22 lbs of fat.
Pretty significant transformations…especially when you consider that both of these guys were both ectomorphs and lifelong hard-gainers.
