KT Tape - Product Review

10:00:00 AM

If you all recall, last year I was training for a full marathon (posts HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE). My first full marathon at that. I got hurt. My IT Band started acting up and I had to take a break. When I came back I knew I didn't have the time to sufficiently train for a full so I chose to go with another half marathon.

In doing so I needed to make sure my knee was protected. After speaking with a Physical Therapist I decided that KT Tape was the route for me to take.

This stuff worked wonders. I never had to worry about my knee, I knew that I was going to be pain free, and I was!

I trained fully with the KT Tape and was able to wean myself off of it towards the end of that training cycle. 

I have been fine ever since, until here recently. Trail running has created a tiny knee niggle that I can guarantee, if I don't take care of will turn into something more.

I've been using my KT Tape exclusively, stretching even more regularly than normal and making sure I am aware of the tiny bit of pain I feel from time to time. I will not allow the pain to get out of control and take over my training. I'll take days off and rest if that means I can run again a few days later. I'll use my KT Tape, I'll protect my knee!

This BibRave campaign was a no brainer for me. I've been using this stuff for over a year, it works, bottom line. Being able to rep this product as a BibRave Pro is such an honor. That coupled with the fact I have an AWESOME coupon code for a product I personally love, I mean what's better than that?!

Seriously, incredible, right?!?

SO, moving on. When using KT Tape it's extremely important that you use it correctly. There are multiple videos on their website showing you how to use their tape correctly for whatever area you are concerned with. Watch these videos, make sure you understand what you are doing. I watched the same video every day for a week before I felt confident doing it without step by step visual aids from the video.

Here are just a few tips as well..

Also, be sure to check out the entire family of products they offer. Depending on your pain level, your usage, you'll choose a different product. Educate yourself! My personal favorite is the KT Tape Pro... The original is solid as well but personally I like the Pro because it lasts longer and with my training cycle I would eat up a LOT of tape having to re-apply every single day!
