Every Athlete should have one in their bag at all times if they are really serious about recovery and reducing muscle soreness.
The Running Floss compression band encourages blood flow, increasing the circulation and warm up of the muscles. The bands help relieve pain that can be associated with runners and athletes, it accelerates recovery, promotes flexibility and increases the range of motion in tight sore muscles.
SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE MUSCLE SORENESS - Running Floss helps break up intramuscular waste to allow for greater mobility and blood supply to an area.
By squeezing the muscle in a tight wrap, then forcing it through a full range-of-motion, friction between muscle fibres helps break up scar tissue and adhesions.
HEALING AND CLEANSING POWER - When you release the band, a rush of blood washes through the muscle; this not only brings nutrients for growth and healing but also clearing out all that waste you just broke up. This is also true for injury recovery and can be used to aid the healing of strained tissue. For swollen areas, you want to promote lymphatic drainage.
STRETCH THOSE HARD TO STRETCH PLACES - To work shoulders, wrists, ankles and elbows wrap the Running Floss band tightly around the joint and put it through a full range of motion like push-ups, squatting, lunging, etc. For knees, wrap one band above and one band below the joint, then do some squats. This works all the small muscles and ligaments which can greatly improve joint pain and stiffness.
CHOOSE FROM 2 LEVELS OF COMPRESSION - The black bands are strong and offer just the right amount of compression for most athletes in most areas. The red bands are slightly stronger and offer an increased amount of compression for athletes with large muscles or those that need to work a little deeper. Or buy both so you can have progressions in compression levels to really hit the spot.
The Running Floss black band measures:
.051" Thick x 2" Wide x 7' Long and provides regular compression.
The Running Floss red band is thicker and measures .060" Thick x 2" Wide x 7' Long. This provides more compression and is better suited in difficult areas like the hips. This band is also great if you like a firmer compression experience.
Running Floss is designed to help runners and athletes recover from training or events aiding in reducing the chances of injury. The bands are also suited for Cross Fitters, Gym, Power Lifting, Tennis Players, Rugby Players, Cricket Players and all Athletes.
