PRODUCT REVIEW: EFX Sport Joint Support Topical Cream

image

image

I had never heard of EFX SPORTS before in my entire life.  I first came across them on a Facebook post. It was one of those contests that you always see entering by liking the page, commenting, and sharing in hopes to actually win something.  I have won stuff on Facebook, like from Tropical Glamour Boutique in Kennett, Missouri.   So when I got my package in the mail I was rather surprised! Let me show you what they actually sent me!

Yea! I know right! That’s a ton of shit! That tiny bottle in the center of the picture, that’s going to be the topic of this whole blog post!

This is a picture from their website. As you can clearly see they offer a package joint rehab support kit. It comes with joint support tabs along with the topical analgesic. I take Osteo Bi-Flex constantly, so I’m hoping at some point to be able to try their joint support and see if it works better than Osteo Bi-Flex. What I did get in my freebie pack from their online contest, was the topical analgesic that is also offered in their pack on their website.  Plus, as you clearly see in the picture it’s on sale and cheaper than buying Osteo Bi-Flex. 

I took a few pictures of their website to show what they say about this joint support kit. The pictures are below.

Now for my review.  I’m going to rave on EFX Sports prices on this one. I have religiously used Voltaren gel which is prescription for over 4 years.  It’s a topical NSAID. You cannot over use that product just like you couldn’t overuse ibuprofen or Tylenol.  Since receiving this product for free through the mail, my husband and I both have use this product religiously. We have used it so much that I’m almost out and I’m not happy about it. Hey, EFX I’m about out if you want to send me some more hook me up! 

My husband and I have both agreed that this product is better than Voltaren gel. I did not do the test just on myself but both my husband and myself did this experiment. He too has joint problems so I thought what a better way to see if the product really works is to let a second person have an opinion on the product. His opinion is exactly like mine.

I will be buying more of this product along with their pills in their kit. If the lotion works that well, then I want to see what the rest of the kit does also. 

The only thing different I can find in this product that makes it different than any other topical cream I’ve used is this….. somehow in this cream they have put a patented pH controled matrix containing kre-alkaline which is buffered creatine monohydrate bonded to Ester fat fatty acids! 

Below are the pictures of my product. Give it a try!

PRODUCT REVIEW: WOD Fitters Foam MFR Roller

image

image

image

I have been on my fitness journey now for 5 years. I have always seen those foam rollers, and wondered what the heck are they for? I started looking at them at Walmart. The basic foam roller with no studs or ribs on it wasn’t too bad of a price, but I wasn’t willing to pay it. I then noticed one that had some texture on the roller. The price on it was even more and I still deemed it not worth it. So I left Walmart with no foam roller in hand.

Recently the workout Gods dropped a WOD Fitters foam roller at my front door. I won it on their Facebook contests they run, so FYI THEIR FACEBOOK CONTESTS ARE LEGIT. It came with its own little bag to put it in for traveling. I also noticed that the foam roller itself was not only ribbed but also studded. I then did a little research over the foam roller itself from WOD fitters. I found that the material that this roller is made out of resistant to microbes. Not saying I don’t clean it, but the fact that microbes can’t attach itself to it is a pretty damn good selling point.

I used to my new foam roller post-workout the day after I received it. I had done much research on YouTube about how to effectively foam roll my muscles. I was very skeptical at how this would help me, but once I used it it was like a million little Chinese elbows digging into my muscles. The feeling of the deep tissue massage done by this foam roller left me feeling amazing afterwards! If it ain’t hurting when you’re rolling; it ain’t going to feel good when you’re done.

In my opinion, this is the best foam roller I have found on the market. Decently priced when I looked at their website, & they seem to stand behind their product! WOD Fitters also offers many other massage products for athletes on their website which I will be purchasing in the future.

My Secrets To Crushing My Workouts

image

VISUALIZE THE WORKOUT LONG BEFORE YOU BEGIN IT!

The intensity of my workouts demand a lot from me.  Not everyone’s workout will be as hardcore as mine, but no matter your level of exercise or fitness, the same focus I use to my workouts will also apply to you.  Your normal day to day life can never prepare you for the type of workout you will get results from. 

I prepare for a tough workout 60 minutes in advance, but I recommend at a minimum of at least 30 minutes before your workout.  Whatever I do, I will not wait till I’m staring down the barrel of a gun (the weights) to get mentally prepared. 

As I walk into any gym I get invited to workout at, I visually prepare mentally to what I’m about to do.  I visualize why I am about to do the workout.  I think about the $10,000 I could win in 8 weeks.  I visualize the beast mode engaging within me.  Then last, but not least, I think about how I want to feel after I am done with the workout.  Do I want to be proud or disappointed is the the question in my mind. 

I figure I have 2 ways to look at a workout.  I can either do it because I have to or do the workout because I actually want to.  Which sounds better to you?  I have done both with all honesty.  No one will ever want to do a workout because they want to 100% of the time!

PREWORKOUT INTAKE TIMING IS CRUCIAL!

We have all seen gym attendees chugging the preworkout either in the locker room or in the gym right before their workout.     Then those people walk out into the gym & are prepared to bust it. Drinking a preworkout then is entirely to late. 

Let me explain why this is wrong.  The caffine & enhancers have not had time to kick in.  The label on most preworkouts suggest 30-45 minutes before your workout.  I personally take my preworkout 30 minutes before I begin my workout.  Mentally, from habit it, it helps me also put me in workout mode by drinking it. 

Sometimes I feel down to some medical issues, & I will eventually disclose those issues in time in future posts.  For me, taking my preworkout & giving it time to kick in is key.  Cellucor C4 is crucial to me being successful in the most intense workouts.  I feel it kick in when the Beta-alanine, & makes my hands & feet tingle.

You can get Cellucor C4 at Walmart, http://www.flexitnutrition.com, or @bodybuilding.com.

MOTIVATIONAL MUSIC & VIDEOS ARE A MUST!

Looking for something to do while in the locker room getting ready or mentally preparing? Looking for something to motivate you during your workout?  Looking for something to listen to as you mentally prepare while sipping your preworkout? 

I listen to Rob Bailey’s music on Bootheel Fitness’ Rap Playlist or Bootheel Fitness’ Motivational Playlist. Rob’s music has changed my life for the better & has personally empowered me.  Sometimes you just need a good motivational talking to!  The motivational videos on Bootheel Fitness’ playlist are another key to my fitness success.

GIVE YOURSELF THE OPTION OF GOING BALLS TO THE WALLS!

My success was largely built by a few simple rules of ethics.  I operate by a few simple words.  The words speak for themselves.  My words of wisdom are: Consistency, dedication, sacrifice, resourcefulness, & disapline.  I will break down each word of wisdom in short.

Consistency in my training, my effective movements, my nutrition, & my living my life PERIOD!  My schedule is my best friend!

Sacrifice…. where should I begin.  I have sacrificed friends, family, and more than I care to ever explain.  If they bring you down or talk about you, they are not worth your time. 

Disapline was when I blocked family & friends because of unneeded drama.  If you aren’t bringing me up, you had to go!  When I did this act, I had nervousness, but once it did it,  I told my mom that it was like a 100 pound bag dropped off my back and I was free!  Disapline on nutrition, living style, & trainings should never be overlooked. 

Dedication is when life hands you those lemons.  What are you going to do?   Are you going to quit or are you going to say not today!  I have had derailments along my way that will all be posted eventually.  The key is if you get knocked down, by golly pick your ass up!  It might be 3 weeks later.  Reset & recover, then don’t let it stop you! 

Last is resourcefulness, & this is a key to not burning out!  The options of fitness never end.  Don’t burn out on 1 thing.  Variety is the spice of life!  A routine can kill sometimes.  Try at the beginning with something fun after your warm up.  A new exercise try is not only fun, but it is also educational. 

KNOW ALL YOUR NUMBERS!

Magic can happen for me when I do measurements.   I do my measurements once a week.  It makes me accountable to myself.  Not to mention, weight watchers success was the accountability by a number system!  I use my Bodyspace account for my tracking. 

ADD SOMETHING NEW ON 2 A DAYS OR THE MOST INTENSE OF INTENSE DAYS.

I add a cup or 2 of coffee in the morning.  Sometimes combined in my protein shakes for breakfast.  I use Cellucor’s C4 for preworkout.  Then multiple drinks made with Optimum Nutrition’s Pro BCAA Raspberry Lemonade drink mix.  BCAAs also help in the my delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

Be proud of what you achieve! You’re better than those not even trying.  You stepped in the gym.  Making fun of an overweight person at the gym is like making fun a an alcoholic at a NA meeting!
