No! Try it out and and let us know how it works. You already have it might as well try out right? Try doing the spits while doing a handstand and see how long you can hold it. That covers all the areas it's supposed to improve right?

-Improves Flexibility
-Better Balance
-Longer Muscle Stamina
-Increased Core Strength

Lol I'm just fucking with you. Hell if it makes you "think" it's doing something then it's worth it. The mind is the hardest thing to figure out. I've gone into the gym fucking psyched up and lifted awesome. I've also gone in with a "just get it done" attitude and lifted like shit. My strength was no different my frame of mind was. If the Bracelet puts you in a better frame of mind and "tricks" your body into thinking it's working don't sweat it.

Berz out.

Is it the hologram sticker that makes you think it works, or the fact that it costs $40 (!)?

If this thing is such garbage, then why do they have so many big-name athletes signed. Surely, these athletes would not want any affiliation with a scam as it's bad for their rep, right?

When I saw this shit in stores, I obviously thought "this shit is garbage", but when I saw so many superstar athletes making testimonials about it, I became unsure. Yes, I know they are obviously getting paid but I'm sure these athletes wouldn't put their rep on the line in order to make some money, considering their rep is what makes them half their money...

You're a fricking moron.

Then again, the placebo effect does work well.

PS: Want to buy some magic spells? For only $100, I can get a witch doctor in Nambia to cast you a spell that will make your life better.

Exactly why I bought it, plus I remember something like the hologram magnets mess with the iron in your blood and improve flow.

BTW DaFonz I have nothing to lose so fuck you and your smart-ass posts. You are probably going to reply with some "educated" philosophy shit, but don't even bother keyboard warrior.

While the idea of a bracelet optimizing your body's performance may be hard to swallow, the general idea behind it's technology isn't. Being in touch with our body's natural energy, and working to optimize it, is at the foundation of many ancient Eastern philosophies. Frequencies from items we use daily such as cell phones, radios, televisions, and microwaves can damage the naturally free-flowing energy in our body. These wristbands claim to be the answer to restoring that energy back to a normal level.

I'm not saying it does or doesn't work, and I couldn't tell you personally that there are any pros or cons of wearing it until I was to wear one. I am open to the idea, that it COULD have some effect. That said, I would never buy one for $40 when I have no idea if it truly works or not.

You have $40 to lose you dumb shit.

In our advertising we stated that Power Balance wristbands improved your strength, balance and flexibility.

We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims
YAY! You're a fucking moron!

PS: Srsly though. Wanna buy some magic spells?

You have 40$ to lose. I dont care if you dont think that's a lot of money. You could have gotten an injection of Dbol with that much.

Nothing to lose? LOL you are a sucker, straight up.

And as far as "OMG ELITE ATHLETES ENDORSE IT" they will endorse ANYTHING If you pay them enough money.

Products like these make me hate humanity for being so stupid.

Fuck you guys and your judgmental posts. I only asked if anyone had experience with it and I wanted to try something that could possibly assist me in the gym. Next time I'll do my research before I buy...


FYI I already returned it and won't make the same mistake to ask you guys for your "opinions". You bunch of fucking smart-ass 30 year olds.

so you can't take negative criticism?

You should wear it around your balls. Is more effective that way.

my cousin plays for HK baseball team and i see everyone on his team using these. The ones they use are from Japan called Phiten something and they all tell me that after a long day of baseball it actually helps relax their muscles. I know they sell these in hk for 300-400$hkd for a bracelet and 1000-2000$hkd for a necklace. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
