Fighting against the cold with kinesio tapes

Was talking today with a pro in cross skiing. For very low temperatures they are using tapes in the face to protect the exposed face areas. Smart idea. Maybe the colour is a bit “loud”. For all those running up at 90°N it’s worth to try in your trainings. Combining it with a breath right tape under the kinesio tape could help to breath through the nose.

  1. No question about tape bracing an elbow, a knee or a wrist is useful especially if you are a shot putter, a handball player or something like that. The funny thing about the kinesio tape is that it’s often not bracing such weak joints but instead just sticks to a open area of skin.
