911-kit

No pain, no gain or the art of recovery!

I’m a wannabe skateboarder and that doesn’t come cheap!

Muscle aches, bruises, road rash and cuts, … you name it, I got it!

Here’s the content of my 911-let’s survive the daily minor injuries!

1. Muscle ache and bruises? Let’s go for the Epsom salt in a hot bath.

Don’t have a bath tub? Just mix the salt with water and apply with on a compress.

2. Bruises? Try the green clay by the Clayers. Apply the clay, like you would spread Nutella on your soft taco and let it dry watching the TV.

3. Road rash? Here comes the green clay again. It works on burns, bugs bites and cuts.

It’s also antibacterial to avoid infection.

You can also use the bag balm on the cuts, road rash or even dry lips.

4. Lumps after a shock? Soak your Dr Cool compression wrap in the water, put in the freezer for 20 minutes and wrap it around the lump. Sizes and colors available!

The KT Tape, for the muscle aches … check their PDF guide depending on where you are hurt to apply the tape appropriately. Keep it 3-7 days. It gives you good support all day long.

5. Also to reduce muscle pain, the compression short from Skins is quite handy.

6. Regarding the shocks in the ankles, knees and hips while trying to land, I trust my PF insoles to reduce the vibrations by 95%!

I hope you won’t need all of this but if you do, you know what to do! Stay safe!

It’s a hot summer in South Florida!

14 Sep

It’s a hot summer in South Florida but I still want to do sport: run, race the pumptrack, … The temperature and humidity are rising fast … To keep practicing physical activities, I need to stay cool … And I t’s possible thanks to DrCool!

You remember them with their cool compression wraps, but not only as they developed a whole new range of products to help fight superheating: t-shirts, chill caps, caps, and sleeves are there to help. They are made with a patented chemical-free cooling material.

This chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material delivers three distinct functions

  • wicking,
  • moisture circulation,
  • and regulated evaporation

All this with one goal: to reduce the fabric’s surface temperature by up to 30%!

Does it work? Yes, it does! It feels great, the tshirt is not heavy with sweat, it doesn’t smell bad and I feel more comfortable for long hours of skating under the sun. 

There’s no going back to cotton!!

PS: because DrCool products are chemical-free, the cooling benefits never wash out.
