My quads are an ongoing nuisance but I’ve been throwing everything at them and hoping that something helps. Lucky for me, I’ve found a few things that have allowed me to keep training (sadly, not for the duration or at the intensity I would like).
KT Tape was one of the first things I tried because it’s easy, quick and relatively cheap. I swung by Fleet Feet and picked up a few strips to try it out.
Next, I watched this handy, dandy YouTube video on how to apply it:
There are helpful videos for just about every body part!
I used it for my race and it definitely helped. I’ve pretty much been using it ever since. Not only that, you can keep it on for up to a week – although I’ve been keeping it on for a little bit less because it gets a funk.
Have you ever tried KT Tape or a different kind of tape? How did you like it?
