So in continuing my month of giveaways, this week I am giving away 3 prize packs from Body Glide! I’ll get to that in a minute…unless you don’t really care about what I have to say and just want to enter…then scroll on down.
Good, you’re still here. So I’ve been having some back pain the past few days, so it’s been hard to get motivated to run. So instead, I thought I’d talk about some extra curricular activities I’ve started. Here ya go!
Pushups and Situps
Back in high school there was a guy I knew who was pretty athletic and pretty built. Based on his frame, I figured he spent a few hours in the gym lifting each day. One afternoon as I was icing my shins after cross-country practice, I over heard him say that he didn’t lift at all! All he did was push ups and sit ups, every day. Seeing as though he had the reputation of being a very honest guy, I had to believe him. And why not? For centuries people have gotten into great shape without a modern gym, just their bodies and the world around them.
Me, on the other hand, I need a little motivation. I need to see the numbers, be able to track it, so it stares me in the face and lets me know that despite the fact that my body hasn’t changed yet, the numbers are racking up. So I was glad when I stumbled upon the 100 push up and 200 sit up Android apps. I’ve tried the programs before, but just using the paper print outs…which you can easily slip into a drawer and forget all about. The apps, however, are there on your phone every day…and you can even set reminders. They track your stats and keep you going.
So, the journey has begun. My wife and I both just finished day 2 of each program, and we’re feeling the burn. Hopefully once we hit the goal we’ll be able to share the news and our awesome new bodies!
Body Glide Review & Giveaway
The past few weeks I’ve reviewed some great products, with a complete unboxing and narrative to go along with them. This time I thought…I’m not going to do that. I’m just going to tell you how it is, without the fluff.
As a runner, I chafe. I chafe between my legs. I chafe under my arms. Even my nipples chafe sometimes. Be honest, you do too. As if muscle fatigue and stomach issues weren’t enough, we have raw skin with which to deal after a long and taxing run. But it doesn’t have to be that way! There is hope!
Enter Body Glide. Body Glide makes “technically advanced balms, for comfort, for life.” In short, Body Glide is awesome. Simply apply (like a deodorant stick) to the problem areas, and viola! No more chafing. It’s fast and easy with no mess to worry about. Put it on before your run and you are good to go.
But wait, it gets better. Body Glide also makes an Anti Pain balm. Similar to Icy Hot and other like products, you apply it to sore muscles and it helps alleviate the pain. I like that it goes on just like regular body glide, so you’re not getting it all over your hands. The only thing I don’t like is that it doesn’t have a vanishing scent…so not something you can wear to the office. But it definitely does the job. Thankfully, this one has a red lid…it would be very unfortunate to mix this one up with the anti-chafe balm…..
