In the recent podcast episode #9, I interviewed US National Swim Coach Jerry White, who spoke about the use of magnets during exercise. He introduced the theory that exposing the body to magnetic fields during exercise can enhance flexibility, improve muscular stability and enhance lactic acid clearance.
It turns out that 41 year old Olympic swim phenom Dara Torres actually utilizes magnets for sports performance! Check out the picture below, where she is wearing a magnetic bracelet. In the youtube video above, you can also see her working out with a magnetic bracelet.
I've actually found a source for the bracelets. Click here to check it out.
Also, there is an actual series of wraps that you can wear on your body after exercising, which I've started to utilize for recovery. Click here to check them out.
