Awesome! Sounds great. I look forward to putting it to use. Thanks again.Quote:
Diesel, we do recommend Battle Balm for iron palm training. Our formula contains traditional Chinese herbs used in bone healing dit da jows. Also, our combination of herbs improve circulation, open up the channels and strengthens the sinews. These are important aspects of iron palm. Battle Balm is also a slightly warming formula, which are good for preparing the joints for heavy work.
Of course, there are many different ideas about what constitutes a good iron palm formula. Ask a bunch of different herbalists and you're bound to find just as many answers. We believe that Battle Balm is an excellent adjunct to iron palm training.
Will Battle Balm work for your iron palm training? Maybe. Maybe not. There are many outside factors. Here's one. The climate of your training location can play a huge part in the type of formulation you need. Suppose you train in Siberia because you want to be like Rocky Balboa in Rocky IV. You never wear gloves in the winter time and you shovel snow with your fingers. Then Battle Balm could help you with your iron palm training, but it may not be enough. You'll probably also need a "hotter" formula to offset the continuous cold you put your fingers through when you are not iron palm training. Does that make sense?
Of course, that's an extreme example. But, it's true that the way you treat your hands outside of the gym will also affect your training inside the gym. In most cases, Battle Balm is great for iron palm training and will help you through the bumps, bruises, strains, sprains, and even hairline fractures. It will also keep your hands and skin in great shape from the scuffs and scratches you get along the way.
For all iron palm training, we suggest some daily qi gong exercises for stretching the tendons to help move the qi and blood. That's just how we roll.
BTW, I sent you an extra sample. You can give one to a friend or just keep it for yourself. Enjoy!
