Powerlifting, Mobility & Recovery

People call me Super D, but my full name is Donnie Thompson. I'm a retired powerlifter and now I specialize in physical therapy and helping other athletes be strong and mobile, and to prevent or recover from injury. I'll be sharing a video with you each week from now on, showing you my favorite exercises, for strength and/or mobility.


This week I show you how I handle my knee injury. Like many of you, I have knee problems, but I don't want to stop training. Using a particular spiral wrapping technique followed by exercises with a rubber band I can drive the swelling out of my knee, increase circulation and mobility, and get back to regular training in a relatively short time.
