Review: InsideTracker

By |September 6th, 2018|

I used to think things like blood tests were only for athletes like those in large professional organizations or those preparing for the Olympic. Now, thanks to InsideTracker, that same data is available to everyone from the person finishing last that walks the entire length of Warrior Dash all the way up to people like World’s Toughest Mudder Champion and Spartan Pro Rea Kolbl.

Book Review- MRG Guide to Ultra OCR

By |August 23rd, 2018|

How do you take a sport that the general public sees as a bit extreme and take it to borderline insanity? How about you quadruple the distance/ duration and possibly add in wetsuit running and you have the sport of Ultra Obstacle Course Racing (OCR)!

Product Review: Elevate CBD Pain Relief Cream

By |August 23rd, 2018|

Over the last month, my testing regimen has consisted of 3 days of Elevate Pain Relief Cream (rotating heating/cooling) applied liberally over my entire shoulder from chest to scapula and extending down the arm to the midpoint of both right biceps and triceps three times per day: 8:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 4:00 pm. I then follow with 3 days of Ibuprofen use, 400mg taken at the same 8, 12, 4 intervals. How did Elevate CBD Pain Relief Cream compare to ibuprofen?

Gear Review: Agogie Resistance Training Pants

By |August 16th, 2018|

Athletes are often looking for progressive ways to enhance their training especially when it can save time. I found out about the Agogie Resistance Training pants at an Expo last winter and figured, "if they might be able to help then why the heck not!"

Review: CLIF Bar Fruit Smoothie Filled Bars

By |August 2nd, 2018|

CLIF sent me a couple boxes of their new bars in Tart Cherry Berry, Strawberry Banana, and Wild Blueberry Acai filled. The three boxes didn't last long in our house between a few adventures and a quick snack the boxes were quickly gone. They were so good in fact, I have already been to REI to restock. 

Product Review: Atomik Climbing Hold Peg Receivers and Holds

By |July 19th, 2018|

I have been a fan of Atomik Climbing Holds for about as long as I have been doing Obstacle Course Racing (OCR). One of the aspects that make OCR challenging is certain movements are hard to make progressive (it gets harder as you get better). Luckily for me (and you), I found Atomik’s Peg Receivers to allow for a versatile training solution that helps you prepare your forearm and back muscles for even the toughest obstacles.

How to Protect Your Car After a Workout or Race

By |July 12th, 2018|

A few months ago a company called Dry Rub contacted me on Instagram and told me about a new product they had. They told me that it was a car seat cover designed to prevent sweat, stains, and odors after a workout or a race. I was intrigued...

Gear Review: WarmUp Protein Coffee

By |July 5th, 2018|

After WarmUp showed some love on my Instagram page, my curiosity grew. Having already dabbled in protein coffee powders, I was curious how WarmUp would compare. I’ve run the entire bag WarmUp sent me through the ringer, testing all imaginable trials from the plain Jane black coffee to a frozen frap-style concoction that would put that popular corner coffee shop to absolute shame.

Gear Review: Human Octane Men’s Elite Compression Shorts

By |June 28th, 2018|

I have a confession to make: I'm not much for compression gear. I know that might sound strange, considering that I'm about to review it, but, honestly, that's why I'm the perfect candidate to do so. I've spent most of my four-plus years involved in OCR and trail running, wearing loose, comfortable fitting shorts.
