PS, hated the Brain pad
I just use the $5 shock doctor ones from Sports Authority. Haven't had a tooth knocked out yet, and I take it a lot in the mouth.
this is the one i use. I love it and they are really easy to form. I got one of the expensive shock doctor ones and that thing was a piece of shit for forming.
Do you cut off those little hexagons? I trim the back of my mouthguards cause they make me gag.
I have a Gladiator custom fitted mouthguard and love it. Best $60 I spent on training gear.
you can, i dont.
I trim just a tad on the top front of it because it is just a little too high for me and it can cut the inside of my mouth if i eat too many shots.
oh, and stays in place perfectly. Thing fits like a glove with or without water in your mouth.
hey hey, I've got that same one. I never use it, even though I should. Every time we roll and someone really puts the pressure on me or puts on a sloppy choke I always hear my teeth grind and feel like my mouth is about to crack open. It's no bueno but I hate juggling around a drool covered mouthpiece.
why take it out?
I also have one of their mouth guard cases which is nice to have.
I'll give it a shot, thanks
What's so great about it?
I use the same one and love it. I started off with the cheap ones from walmart, then tried everlast. Shock Doctor is the best that I have used so far.
I actually chew gum sometimes. All my fucking teeth are chipped anyways.
I have a few, but the smaller 2 tone shock doctor seems to work ok, I like to trim the backs off so I dont choke on them when im on my back.
and cheap. i think its only $15
gladiator pro. they're $50 and worth it, it's the exact same quality as the mouthguard i had my dentist make.
I got the $5 shock doctor one and I love it. Slim but works. I think once my retainers and shit get done with the final mouth adjustments I'll get a custom gladiator.
Custom fit with a dental kit, not a boil and bite. Multi layered plastic. Check their site for the details I guess.
how's breathing with this mouthguard?
i got the same one as checkii
hard to breathe with it? my cardio already sucks
not at all. its a normal single mouthguard. so with a little water it will suck up and stick to your top row teeth. Then breathe like normal when possible. and things like that are unrelated to cardio, you probably have a deviated septum.
you'll learn to adapt.
I have one and Im gonna start BJJ soon.... what can I expect ?
well i have a respiratory infection right now, so my cardio is even worse lol
go to a dfauciking orthodonstist or dentist and hget the custom modled one nigger. shit works wonders.
its like 70ish BONES but shit work REAL well. doesnt restrict berathing or anthing. REALL decent.
i used that nagger for hockey, and it wass real fukcing dece. then i jacked it and used ti fofr teh bjj, and rworked even more dece.
true story. take my word for it.
at least for me its harder to remember to breath. I dont do bjj so i wouldnt know. in MT i just had to learn when to breath in through my mouth and when to just hold it and breath out. its amazing how fast you'll gas when you are breathing in correctly.
I also take a sudafed 12 hour decongestant antihistamine before the gym and spray some nazonex up in there too. Usually gives a little helping hand.
