The PainPill

What is Body Tempering and how does the PainPillwork?

Body Tempering focuses on two key areas that can greatly benefit athletes like you: overcoming pain and preventing injuries.

Firstly, it helps reduce muscle tension, which in turn lowers the risk of sprains and strains. By incorporating Body Tempering into your routine, you can safeguard your body against these common athletic setbacks.

Secondly, frequent use of Body Tempering leads to improved flexibility and mobility. This, in turn, helps you find better positions during your training sessions, whether inside or outside the weight room. By reducing soreness, Body Tempering allows for more effective and productive future training sessions. It accelerates your recovery, enabling you to push harder and achieve greater results.

Think of Body Tempering as a tool to complement your existing training and rehabilitation protocols. Too often, we wait until something is broken before taking action, neglecting the importance of routine maintenance. Body Tempering aims to prevent injuries and reduce soreness by improving range of motion and alleviating tightness. However, it's crucial to understand that optimal movement and training are essential for this modality to be effective.

Body Tempering offers a pathway to unlock your athletic potential. By incorporating this technique into your regimen, you overcome pain, reduce the risk of injuries, improve flexibility and mobility, and enhance your overall performance. Remember, it's not a quick fix, but a valuable tool for athletes committed to maintaining their bodies and reaching new heights.

This is a great tool for tapping into the power of the nervous system and a must have if you are, or, work with strength and power athletes. You will never be the same after you try it.

Unexpectedly amazing

This is one of the most useful tempering tools I didn't know I needed. I'd heard that the Theragun G2 Pro was the most aggressive massage tool out there, so I'd gotten it in order to get deep into my quad and hip tissues, but even that wasn't to standard. This thing is just damn heavy, well made, and is the only thing that I consistently get a good roll out from. If you want to just smash you quads or put 20kg's of pressure into a tight spot, this will do it. It's also worked wonders on my forearms when I've incurred wrist and arm pain from benching and pressing.

Went far beyond expectations

I train contortion for circus, so a bit different from the others haha! When I train Olympic lifting, my over-splits suffer. I hoped this would help roll out the tightness after lifting sessions. It worked wonders. Even with a contortion warm-up, my left quad and abductors were always difficult (my favored side from decades of hockey), but this took out the bias in one session. Broomstick is in my cart as I'm certain it will work wonders on smaller areas. Well done.

Top Quality

The pain pill is precisely manufactured in every wall possible. The dense weight is perfect for a deep tissue tempering tool you can use on yourself without any help. Or, have someone else use it to target specific areas. The texture is perfect from the very smooth outside to the tight knurl center. The smooth, rounded ends provide a perfect point (not too agressive to cause damage) to apply targeted pressure.

Exactly what the doctor ordered

This apparatus is hilariously effective.

Honestly, I am not surprised by the acute impact it has on pain and mob, aility. However, what I AM surprised by is how long the treatment "sticks"- there is, easily 5x differential between typical manual treatment methods and the pain pill.
