Kinesiology Tape: Is it worth the hype?
Kinesiology Tape, sometimes known as K-Tape, might feel like just another “specialist” item on a long list of stuff you’ve heard people banging on about and encouraging you to buy – but sometimes it’s hard to know what equipment is actually worth it and what’s just the latest fad that’ll blow over in a month or two. At the end of the day, it's important to remember that what might not work for you, may just be the solution for someone else.
Here at Mammal Strength, we understand that investing in good quality products that will work wonders to improve your gym sessions, and your general fitness, is really important; so here’s our little helping hand when it comes to K-Tape. What is it, when should you wear it and why you really, really should give it a try!
But first and foremost, what actually is Kinesiology tape?! Well, it’s pretty simple really: it’s an adhesive, flexible tape that sticks specifically to skin. It is used to provide support and relief when you’re dealing with muscle injury and/or going through rehabilitation.
The great thing about a good quality K-Tape is that it allows you to continue with exercise; just pop it onto the injured area before you get started with your workout and it’ll not only last throughout but also ensure stability and comfort during movement, not to mention helping your injury along in the healing process in the background. But K-Tape is also going to make sure you don’t push your muscles to places they don’t want to go in their vulnerable state; it protects you, so you don’t have to worry. It’s kind of amazing that you can continue with a lot of your normal exercise motions whilst ensuring your condition is improving and that you won’t injure yourself further. Right?!
Decent K-Tape is extremely long-lasting and high-quality – you can use it on so many different parts of your body, so its versatility is another great selling-point! And if you buy it from the right company, your Kinesiology tape will also be hypoallergenic and suitable for even the most sensitive of skin.
And, as it happens, we know the perfect place to purchase your K-Tape from…us!!! Our K-Tape is premium quality, made from the most comfortable material; it’s long-lasting, provides ultimate protection and boosts performance like you wouldn’t believe! Not to mention, it looks pretty sick too.

But, as ever, don’t just take our word for it. Try it out for yourself…
Trust in the tape and find it within.
