You may recognize names such as Tim Ferriss, Joe Rogan, Dave Asprey, or Ben Greenfield from their best-selling books or chart-topping podcasts. They’ve all invested a considerable about of time, effort, and resources into exploring the best health and fitness routines to keep their body in optimal condition. And Teeter Inversion has made the list for each one of them.
Inverting on a Teeter offers a variety of benefits, and each of the top performers below has explained their own personal reason for adding a Teeter to their daily routine.
Tim Ferriss, Best-Selling Author & Host of the Tim Ferriss Show
The EZ-UP Gravity Boots and products such as the P2 Back Stretcher provide compact alternatives to the Inversion Table. The boots work on most pull-up bars and the P2 can be used while seated or even lying down on the floor.
When you travel as much as Ferriss, an on-the-go decompression solution ensures you don’t leave back pain relief behind. When he’s not traveling, inverting on a Teeter Inversion Table has become part of his nightly routine:
“As a lifelong insomniac, I’ve tried everything for faster and better sleep, and hanging upside-down on a Teeter is one of the critical few that make the cut.” – Tim Ferriss
Joe Rogan, Standup Comic & Host of the Joe Rogan Experience
“I’ve suffered from several back injuries over the years (bulging discs) from jiu-jitsu and working out. One of the things that has helped me a lot is using one of those Teeter Inversion Tables. I strap my ankles into this thing and I hang upside down – it’s a great way to decompress your back and get rid of pain.”
A black belt in jiu-jitsu, Joe Rogan uses a Teeter Inversion Table as a part of his daily routine to move better, feel better, and live better. He has referred to the benefits of inversion on his podcast many times, including during this recent conversation with Jesse Ventura:
Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Founder & CEO
Dave Asprey considers himself a “biohacker”. What is that exactly? He defines it as “changing your environment from the inside-out so you have full control of your biology; using your body as your personal laboratory, finding the exact hacks that work for you.”
One of the ways Dave “hacks” his biology is by inverting. In fact, inversion is one of Bulletproof’s “Top 10 Biohacks” for increasing cognitive function, reducing stress, losing fat and increasing productivity:
“Regular inversion trains your brain capillaries, making them stronger and more capable of bringing oxygen to your brain. It’s pretty straight-forward – more oxygen to your brain means better brain performance.”- Dave Asprey
Inverting on a Teeter can help to restore healthy blood flow to your brain by changing your body position in gravity. This stimulates a physiological response to compensate for increased pressure by dilating blood vessels and capillaries in your head. In seconds, billions of oxygen- and nutrient-starved neurons are invigorated with an inflow of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients. With regular use, you may experience better focus and concentration and a newfound sense of energy.
Ben Greenfield, Best-Selling Author and Host of Ben Greenfield Fitness
When he’s not running brutal races, writing books, trying out new supplements or working out, Ben Greenfield looks for new ways to improve himself or his daily routine. Similarly to Asprey, he can be considered a serious biohacker. Lately, he has started to use the Teeter Inversion Table as a recovery tool:
I personally hang from an inversion table in my garage for about 5-10 minutes several times per week, especially after a long bike ride or run, and the “drainage” effect is amazing. Heavy, swollen feet and legs almost instantly become lighter and less swollen – and the inversion effect even works nicely after a long day of standing workstation use.”
– Ben Greenfield on his blog.
As you can see, there is a variety of benefits to adding Teeter Inversion to your daily routine for better performance – whether it’s to improve sleep quality, decompress the back and get rid of pain, increase blood flow to the brain for better cognitive function, or boosting recovery after a workout.
