The Best Compression Recovery Boots

This article is a long time in the making, over a year, and many thousands of dollars of “research” money was spent to make sure I tested out all the machines possible. I went ahead and bought compression recovery boots from all the levels of legitimate and semi-legitimate manufacturers I could find to see if […]

TomTom Cardio Review

I write this review with a somewhat heavy heart. I almost never write reviews that are of products that I would give less than 3 out of 5 stars to but the TomTom Cardio watch breaks the mold in my heavily researched buying. I’ll be keeping this review relatively short and mainly using it as a […]

Hyperwear SandBell Review

Recently it came to my attention once again that I need more work on carrying weight for long distances. So I said to myself, “Self, you really need to get something more comfortable to carry on your shoulder for hours at a time.” Off I went in search of a sand bag type product that […]

Dryrobe Review

When I was recently catching up with Spartan Race World Champion and OCRWC winner, Jon Albon, I saw that he was sponsored by a company I wasn’t familiar with. So I started looking into Dryrobe to see what they do and I was instantly floored by the fact I had never heard of what Dryrobe makes. […]

They even have the slogan, “Because warriors are not made on treadmills.” This speaks to their entire approach to creating tough enduring garments that have all the needed features for a long wet and muddy race. For this review I’m going to […]

You need to be racing in compression shorts (spandex)

Everyone has what they think is the silver bullet for the racing and training gear needs but we often will shy away from some of them because we aren’t sure we want to be that guy (or gal). Things like nipple tape, tall compression socks, hydration packs, or Spandex are what some people look at and say, […]

Moxy Monitor Review

The Moxy Monitor uses one of the coolest technologies that I’ve seen in a long time. What the Moxy monitor does is measure the levels of oxygen in the blood of whatever muscle it is attached to. They have made this technology work by using light emitting infrared diodes that pass through the skin and reflect to […]

Spartan UP! – review

I was lucky enough to find myself with a copy of the new book by Joe DeSena, Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life, before its release for a review. I didn’t know at all was what the book would consist of. My initial thought was that this […]
