Donnie Thompson Formal Bowtie

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.

You can also track your package each step of the way using the Rogue Shipping Tracker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Relief Bought this product about a month or so ago. Any time I really start feeling that shoulder rotation forward I put it on. It helps fix my posture and open up the blood flow to my arms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing is terrible Im 5'8 145lbs female. I bought the small in black, it was too small. Bought the medium in red, it was too big and the material is different then the black, more scratchy and overall uncomfortable. Love the idea of the product but poorly executed. Try it before you buy it if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected The long-term effects of this product are yet to be observed. But so far so good. I have not worn this while working out (yet) but I do wear it during the times that I notice that my posture is less-than-favorable: while working at the computer and while driving in traffic. I am 74" tall with a 44" chest (220 lbs) and the X-Large size bow-tie seems to be a good fit (slightly snug). It firmly pulls the shoulders outward and holds them there without causing pain or discomfort. I am so glad I bought this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Never Right Reviews! I bought the Casual bow tie about 3 months ago and I must say it is great! I didn't tell my wife and I wore it under my clothes. My wife noticed instantly that I was standing up straight which I have never done since I've met her 25 years ago. I've weightlifted off and on for years and that hunch in my back was always there. It does not make you sit up straight but it makes you very aware and you want to stand up straight! My shoulders were tight and leaning forward. This puppy pulled them back and stretched them out nice and right. I can't say enough good things about this piece of equipment. I wore it all day for the first couple of weeks and for the last month once a week. It continues to stretch my shoulders as they tighten from workouts. Even if you don't think you need it you should try it as I've found nothing that relieves trap/pec tightness like this. All I can say is Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product In my experience, this has really helped me focus on proper form on the bench and incline. With that comes the benefit of better muscle isolation and an reduced potential for injury. I’ve also noticed that as an older athlete this has helped reduce the post workout ache I can get in my shoulders the day after. small investment for a quality performance product.
