Every year, we spend approximately a bazillion dollars on all manner of treatments for pain in our necks, backs, feet, shoulders, etc.
Sadly, most of that pain is due to inactivity, poor posture, sitting too long in front of tvs & computer screens, poor training form, etc.
If only there was a way to quickly and inexpensively eliminate those aches and pains?
VooDoo Floss Bands
Way back in 2011, I saw the following Youtube video (with Dr. Kelly Starrett and uber-strong man Donny Thompson) highlighting the use of DISTRACTION and COMPRESSION to help repair shoulder dysfunction…which I happened to be suffering from at the time.
The very next day, I…
- Ordered a pair of compression bands, and
- Started rehabbing my bad shoulder with the distraction technique.
After 6 days…
- My shoulder felt a LOT more stable and was noticeably less painful. I had also resumed resistance training with my focus on rehab.
- The compression bands arrived in the mail.
After 2 days of compression & distraction rehab…I was able to press an 80 lb dumbbell overhead with ZERO pain in my formerly-bad shoulder.
In another week, my shoulder felt better than it had in a long, long, long time.
In the 5 years since then…Crossfit exploded in popularity…helping Dr. Starrett become THE mobility & athletic performance guru…and compression bands became very popular amongst weightlifters, crossfitters, powerlifters AND physiotherapists.
Fast forward to today…and it’s just about time for compression bands (and associated rehabilitation techniques like Donnie Thompson’s distraction technique) to enter the mainstream.
Instead of spending big bucks on massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, etc, it’s time for “normal” people to take advantage of this amazing rehab technique and…
- drop $25 on a pair of compression bands
- pony up another $40 on Kelly Starrett’s amazing book : Becoming a Supple Leopard
For $65, you will be getting the knowledge and the gear required to keep your joints healthy, strong and pain-free.
And if you don’t want to drop the extra $$$ on Kelly’s book, I have sourced the best “how-to-use-compression bands-to-fix-my-busted-up-body” videos from the Youtubes. They are organized by joint/bodypart.
Note: If you follow the above links (and make a purchase), Rogue fitness will give me 5% of the purchase price as a finder’s fee. It won’t cost you any extra and the dough will go straight into my daughter’s education fund.
