ROCKTAPE is great for sports where fatigue is a factor, it promotes circulation, reduces muscle fatigue and enhances performance. Similar to the Kinesiology tape Lance Armstrong wrote about in his book, “Every Second Counts”, ROCKTAPE is used by professional athletes like 2008 US National Track Champion/2012 Olympic Hopeful Shelley Olds, Canadian Olympian/World Record Holder Doug Consiglio, and US National Track Champion/National Record Holder Steve Peleaz.
When applied over an elongated muscle, ROCKTAPE creates differential surface pressure which promotes the acceleration of blood flow. This acceleration increases the amount of oxygen available to the muscles.
Additionally, this increase in circulation promotes lymph drainage which helps endurance athletes manage swelling and recovery. These combined effects are powerful; they allow the athlete to go harder for longer periods.
