New Age is the only mouthware available utilizing patented dimensional stabilizer technology. This corrects, aligns, and stabilizes your jaw instantly providing enhanced body performance benefits, with less fatiguing and injuries.
Rutgers University research studies state, that proper jaw alignment has a definitive positive impact on athletic performance, helping activate muscles, improve grip strength, enhance leg press performance, and lead to increased muscle activation during weightlifting, ultimately making athletes feel stronger and less restricted.
"New Age Performance protects my teeth and improves my performance. And for me, that's the name of the game. That's why I use the 6DS mouthpiece for all of my training and all of my competitions."
"When I was deadlifting and squatting, I was kind of lopsided. As soon as I put the 6DS mouthpiece in, the differences were amazing. I felt stronger and my performance was better. My teeth were safe as well."

- STUDY 1: Creating Tension Through Jaw Clenching - "Jaw clenching is a valid way to help you activate your muscles."
The study concluded that clenching the jaw helps with improving strength and is a valid way to help you activate your muscles.

- STUDY 2: Grip Strength Performance - "There is a significant effect on handgrip force when the jaw is clenched."
A 2016 study on jaw clenching specifically concluded that it would be advisable to have a bite-aligned mouthpiece to improve strength and performance. They looked at isometric grip strength and found a significant effect on handgrip force when subjects clenched their jaw.

- STUDY 3: Leg Press Performance - "There was significant improvement in leg press performance when using a mouthpiece."
A 2018 study looked at the differences in various types of performance while using a traditional mouthguard used by contact sport athletes, no mouthguard, and a bite-regulated mouthpiece. The most relevant finding for strength athletes would be that there was a significant improvement in leg press performance when using a bite-regulated mouthpiece when compared to just a generic mouthguard.

- STUDY 4: Power Cleans & Muscle Activation - "Athletes reported feeling stronger."
A 2015 study looked at a number of mouthguards and their effect on weightlifters performing submaximal power cleans. One finding was that there was more muscle activation present when wearing one of the tested products. Athletes reported feeling stronger and less restricted when wearing a custom-fitted mouthpiece.

Improved focus and stability during lifts and allows me to train to absolute failure while not worrying about permanent damage on my teeth or me accidentally biting my tongue. For beginners or moderate lifters this may seem extreme and unnecessary but to my more experienced lifters who understand the meaning of training to absolute failure and the effects it has on you. Y’all should understand my pain from the intense biting down on my teeth or accidental tongue bite on those last few reps.
This is a game changer. Added balance and can definitely get an extra 3 reps out!
Saves my teeth during heavy and lighter lifts alike! Very durable along without losing comfort.
I was very skeptical at first. But after using it I actual feel more solid and stronger. My only problem is my gag reflex, I have to stick my tongue through the mouthpiece until I start lifting and remove it as soon as I complete the lift. I guess I will get used to it though. I will definitely buy more of these when this once this one wear out.
This thing is great and will help save my teeth over years of clenching.
I love my mouthpiece, training with it has made my lifting performance so much better and easier.
This is an awesome product. It’s taken my gym workout to next level. Simple and easy to fit product. The instructions are simple to follow. The fit is great.
Makes it easier to train beyond failure
My favorite Mode guard. I actually use it for contact sports bjj But of course doesn't provide any protection for your friend teeth. Absolutely be sure to fit it right.
The New Age Performance 6DS is truly noticeable when training at 80% or better. I highly recommend the use during those hard working sets.
6DS always helps pull thru my workouts. I can’t workout without it.
Will give a review when available, broke foot in two places the day I received my order🤪
