    This Cobra Has a Better Bite

    By Edward Stairs

    AMC TV is set to launch a new reality show like no other.

    It’s called the Game of Arms and it premieres this Tuesday night (Feb. 25, 2014), and millions of viewers are expected to tune in and experience the raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling. The makers of the new show, Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik, also produced the Deadliest Catch, which won a Primetime Emmy.
    One star of the show is world renowned arm wrestler, Andrew “Cobra” Rhodes – a true ‘top roll’ force to be reckoned with at the table.

    “This show is going to be huge,” says an enthusiastic Rhodes while taking a break from filming in Kansas City, Missouri. “Everyone is going to be tuned in and watching next week which is just awesome. The new show marks is an exciting chapter for the world of arm wrestling.”

    While the “Cobra” is excited to be featured in such a huge TV production, he is also eager to be talking about a new natural performance enhancer that is improving his performance at the table on many levels.

    You see, the world wide legendary arm wrestler is using a new sport orthotic that aligns his jaw – placing it in an optimal position. Most of the population has an overbite issue, and it’s proven than when your jaw is properly aligned it has positive benefits for the body.

    It’s called the New Age Performance Mouthpiece and he swears by it and uses it religiously.

    “It’s amazing how a small mouthpiece can make a world of difference,” he says while holding up the device. “I use this when I train and compete as it tremendously helps my range of motion and overall agility and strength. I am totally blown away with it.”

    “I call it my new secret weapon, but everyone sees me wearing in my mouth, so it’s no longer a secret,” he laughs. “I am now telling everyone that they have to get this mouthpiece and experience a new natural performance enhancer that’s like no other.”

    The world now seems to be biting on this new invention. Rutgers University recently even released a research paper on proper jaw alignment and concluded it has a definite positive impact on athletic performance.

    The “Cobra” himself experienced a serious car wreck not long ago and ever since has been looking for natural methods to heal.

    Then he met Dr. Anil Makkar, the co- inventor of the device, and his whole life changed forever.

    “I remember Dr. Makkar doing some simple tests on me and I was just floored,” he says. “I was sold on the device right away and ever since I wear it day in and day out while working out and competing at the table.”

    Dr. Makkar, who has studies jaw alignment techniques extensively at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dentistry, indicates that there have been a lot of scientific studies on performance mouthpieces and jaw alignment dating back to the 1950s.

    “Several research and scientific papers have clearly stated that when one’s bite is in the correct position, the alignment of your body is also affected in a positive way. Our new device, worn on the lower teeth, will allow everyone to experience immediate results with balance, increased strength, and flexibility,” says Dr. Makkar.

    Rob Charlton, co-owner of the company, is thrilled that the “Cobra” is giving the invention two-thumbs up.

    “While Andrew is blow away with our device, we are just as blown away with his sounding affirmation,” says Charlton. “His words are encouraging and we know he is out there educating others on the benefits of jaw alignment with our new natural performance enhancer.”

    The talk of natural performance enhancers is taking a more centre stage among bodybuilders, gym buffs and athletes alike as the sports world these days has been rocked with steroid scandals.
