    Very interesting and eye opening episode. I have been messing with KT tape for a little while but really didnt know too much about it. I am definitely making the switch to Rock Tape. Anything that gives an edge/injury prevention is worth trying and every penny. Keep up the informative content, its much appreciated!

    This was a highly informative show. Great information! I will never forget a lecture I attended presented by Dr. Capobianco several years ago at Richard Diaz’ lab., where I was initially not all totally convinced about the effectiveness of this Rock Tape. I was wrong…so so so wrong. Now I am never without my Rock Tape! Less is more, but it DOES work. Thank you Dr. Capobianco for an outstanding product! And, thank you Richard for the Listen and Learn podcasts…we are listening, and learning!!!

    Another great podcast Richard! I love the information provided about overstriding and cadence. I’ve been using kinesiology tape for awhile now, partially per your instruction for injury, and also for my knees when doing a lot of downhill running, but I’ve never heard of this kind of application with it. So if we can use this tape to kind of coach correct running form, is there a way that it could also because to teach proper form in other fields such as weight lifting or functional training? Anyway, really interesting stuff! Keep it up!

    Another very informative Podcast. I’ve used KT tape in the past and never liked it. My chiro recently applied (properly) some Rock tape on my left shoulder, and it really helped. Thanks for these awesome podcasts. I look forward to them every week!

    I’d like to first thank you Richard for being the person you are and helping others improve their athletic careers by giving us great information and training techniques via podcasts and social media, can’t wait to see where we go from here.

    Thank you for this great podcast! I have tried using different tapes in the past for knee pain due to running, but what a great perspective to target the ankles, and correct mechanics, rather than, or in addition to, directly treating the pain! This is the first podcast i hear from you, and am looking forward to the next one!
