CoreControl Glove

CoreControl Glove

About a year ago I read an article that came from Stanford lauding a new product they made. In the press released, one of the inventors, Dr. Heller, spoke of how his product could help in a gym setting. When testing a subject on pull-ups, in “six weeks he went from doing 180 pull-ups total to over 620”.

620! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! Crazy.crazy

How is this possible?

“Our major heat exchange surfaces are our palms of our hands, the soles of our feet, and our face” says Dr. Heller.

The body works best in a specific temperature range. When the body gets overheated, for example when working out really hard or being in a hot environment, your system shuts down certain functions to keep you safe. sweating

In the case of pull ups, after a certain amount the enzyme that regulates muscle function will shut off the ability to do more pull ups because your body got overheated. With this new product, the CoreControl Glove, that specific muscle enzyme will keep the muscle working safely.

Have you heard of athletes going into ice baths after practice? Well, this is a more focused and controlled version of that, with the science finally backing up the process.

How does it work?

The glove wraps around one hand and wrist, creates a suction which brings your blood to the surface of the skin, and flows cool water through tubes in the glove to cool down your body temperature.

In the year that I’ve been following this story the CoreControl Glove has gone from over $3,000 to $995. The price is still a bit high, especially for commercial use, but if you want to increase performance without the use of steroids, than this is the way to go.

By the way, the San Francisco 49ers, the Oakland Raiders, and Manchester United Soccer club have all started incorporating this device into their programs.

I’ll keep you posted on any updates for this product.

And remember:

In order to achieve something you’ve never done before, you must be willing to become somebody you’ve never been before
