Do you fear the dentist? What if it meant that you could improve your power output, decrease pain, and align your spine for optimal performance? This is what Dr. Greg Ueckert has been working on for over ten years. He has been assisting athletes with bite and mouth guards which have enabled them to train harder than they ever thought possible. The long list of pro athletes includes John [@JohnWelbourn] who has raved of the results since his time in the NFL.
The jaw is one major aspect of the postural construct which can greatly affect alignment. Those who suffer from pain, particularly in the head, neck, shoulder and back are seeing phenomenal results by using mouth guards specifically designed by Dr. Greg Ueckert. By using a very proactive approach in design, Ueckert is able to dictate the absolute ideal position for the jaw. This is leading to far less pain and a shitton more power and connectivity throughout the kinetic chain. Learn how you can take advantage of this subtle but drastic impact on performance.
You can find Dr. Ueckert on Twitter under the handle [@AustinsDentist].
And while the #ToesForward campaign is over, that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop promoting the Power Athlete Symposium. If you haven’t heard, it’s slowly replacing Christmas for most strong people. Sitting around in your jammies exchanging presents is some weak shit. Instead, think about throwing on some Zubaz and a stringer and doing work. What would Jesus do? Blast arms at a 24 hour fitness on his birthday.
