Rocktape experiment

So thought i would update you guys and let you know how rocktape has been hanging on. So shaving the legs was a bit weird, but don't tell my wife, i kinda like it.

So i had it on the first time for 3 days. I slept twice, showered 3 times, biked for an hour, swam 3000 yards in an hour, ran 3 miles with it on and it never failed. never came off except a little bit at the edges. But that might of been due to me wearing jeans on the first day. i eventually took it off manually just cos i felt like it. i re-applied it yesterday as im going to have a busy few days. ran this morning, on the bike again tomorrow, run saturday morning, bike in the afternoon and then bike again on sunday. there will probably be a swim in there somewhere as well.

So, i would say, if you have any little pains or niggles, give this stuff a try.

  1. Shhhh, I enjoy my legs shaved too, shhhh dont tell anyone.

    I got a free sample from them, I do not know how to apply it. I am a fan of compression personally, but sounds like its the real deal. Once I learn to apply it, to my calves since I have issues with them.

  2. hey BDD

    Check their website, there are videos of how to apply it. its pretty easy and works well. i use it on both my calves as i was experiencing calf pain when i run. after just two applications the pain is gone for now.

    im actually so impressed with the tape, i am hoping to become a re-seller for them. let me know if you want to get some more.

  3. Like the blog! keep up the good work. I'll be reading

  4. what the hell is this stuff

  5. ROCKTAPE is the only Kinesiology tape engineered to meet the demands of endurance athletes like runners, swimmers and cyclists. Unlike other products, ROCKTAPE can be used both to apply compression to promote recovery, or decompression to relieve pain and swelling. Similar to the Kinesiology tape Lance Armstrong wrote about in “Every Second Counts”, ROCKTAPE is used by professional and amateur athletes everywhere.
