Developed by powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson and Spud Inc., the Bowtie is a simple but effective accessory for helping athletes train and maintain superior positioning. In a time when the average person spends much of their day working at a computer, looking at a cell phone, or stuck driving in traffic, the problem of slouching—and the shoulder pain that comes with it—is all too common. The Bowtie attacks this issue by applying firm compression to the pectoral tendons and biceps tendons reducing strain on the muscles behind the shoulders.

When worn during warm-ups or as you move through your squats, bench, deadlifts, etc., the Bowtie not only helps limit some of these aches and pains, but also trains more consistent form. Along the way, your muscle memory is rewired, as the brain encourages better posture in your day-to-day life.
