Body Tempering Part 1
by Donnie Thompson

Performing Body Tempering on an athlete is a process in which we use these mechanisms to break tissue out of its adhesive state by being placed under a crushing load. Promoting and increasing individual performance by allowing the body to work independently of muscle adhesion's. We roll every major muscle on the body we can get to: quads, hammies, glutes, adductors, IT-bands, erectors, traps, abs, obliques, pecs, biceps, triceps, tibialis, forearm exstensors/flexors and hands and bottoms of feet. The result is a much stronger body over time.
