Wikipedia defines triathlon as a multi-sport event involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance events.
It almost sounds easy when you say it that way.
Being able to withstand the demands of not one, but three sports sets triathletes apart from all other athletes. There are no time-outs, no substitutions, no rest between plays.
We understand. This is why our products no only pass the test of medical pros but also triathletes.
Julie Dibens won the swim and bike portions of the Kona Ironman Championships this year. She spent over 6 hours in the water and on the bike. Pretty impressive. Even more impressive given that she had a stress fracture on her right foot. And yes, Rocktape was there with her.
Rocktape not only works wonders for injuries but also assists in coordination and movement. When athletes fatigue, they lose form. When form deteriorates, athletes slow down. When we tape an athlete using our PowerTaping protocol, we help them extract every once of energy from their body and use it as efficiently as possible. Why? Because triathlon isn’t about being fast. It’s about slowing down slower than your competitor.
Rocktape isn’t the only weapon we offer triathletes. pHast Legs is our newest product and is designed to help athletes solve two important problems:
Muscle Burn – How many times has someone told you that lactic acid causes muscle burn? Guess what, they’re wrong. The latest research has determined that lactic acid, which is produced during hard efforts is not responsible for the burn. So what is? Hydrogen ions are believed to be the culprit. As you exercise, your respiratory system attempts to remove carbon dioxide. If your respiratory system can’t keep up, waste products such as hydrogen ions and carbon dioxide accumulate in your muscle tissue until they are flushed out though your liver. This accumulation is what is linked to ‘muscle burn’.
Recovery – As the cells in your muscle tissue fill up with waste, they begin to burn and more importantly, nutrients are prevented from entering your tissue which delays your recovery. pHast Legs works like a garbage truck – it increases your blood’s ability to naturally remove the waste which decreases the burn and speeds up recovery. How? In addition to key minerals which are natural alkalizing agents, pHast Legs balance the pH levels of your blood which helps optimize recovery.
