Developed by powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson and Spud Inc., the Formal Bowtie is a simple but effective accessory for helping athletes train and maintain superior posture. 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 reducing strain on the muscles behind the shoulders. When worn during warm-ups or as you move through your squats, bench, deadlifts, etc., the Formal 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.

The Thompson Formal Bowtie is designed specifically for serious athletes, and is made from a heavier, stiffer webbing material than the Casual Bowtie (which can be worn throughout the day over longer periods). Available in a wide range of sizes, the Formal Bowtie can have a noticeable effect on reducing common shoulder pain and pec tightness, while also reducing the risk of more serious injuries down the road.

Wonderful product
I bought these on Black Friday and they've been wonderful. Sometimes a bit of a struggle to get on and in place properly, but they work excellently at bringing my shoulders back and into a nice set place. I wear it for as long as I can tolerate it around the house to help keep me from slacking. After about 30 minutes or so I tend to get a bit of a pinch in my left arm, so I will take it off and let the blood flow through for awhile before putting it back on.

Bowtie great kit
Nice addition to the kit bag, I get more out of a knee wrap but it cant be lefy on too long as its uncomfortable and needs two people to do properly. The bow tie is convenient and can be fitted in no time, the rear strap can be anchored and that extra tension applied easily.

I purchased this because I had been having problems with an inflamed left trapezius muscle and some nerve pain. My left shoulder would always sit higher than my right, not contract properly, and on bench press especially I was having a hard time pushing through the mid part of the lift because I couldn't stabilize my shoulder correctly. I wore it for about 15 minutes and after taking it off the nerve pain and inflammation was gone and both shoulders sat evenly. I was skeptical about using it for lifting but it really did help my left shoulder retract properly in the bench and squat so I could do the lifts correctly. Now I've been wearing it 15-20 minutes at a time during the day and during lifting and there's a noticeable difference in my posture. It's not a replacement for mobility work or chiropractic therapy, but as a supplemental tool to keep your body in the correct position during daily activity it's fantastic.
