Pannel Yoga Pants with Pockets, Utopian Bliss Women‘s Power Flex Yoga Pants High Waist Tummy Control Workout Yoga Capris Pants Leggings with out pocket

Being a gym rat, I love having great workout clothes, that I look and feel good in.  I am happy to say that the Pannel Yoga Pants with Pockets, are on my favorite list.

First off they are so comfortable.  Probably the most comfortable pair of Capris I have.  The fabric is 87% nylon, and 13% spandex, which makes them fit like a glove, but have so much stretch in them.  They have a deep pocket on the front left leg, and also a secret one in the waistband.

I have worn them while boxing/kick boxing, lifting weights on an upside down Bosu ball, several high intensity Zumba classes, and circuit training.  The stay in place, and stretch in any direction I go.  They are excellent quality, and the finish is perfect.

From the Amazon website:

  • Yoga capri legging also feature all over interlock seams to reduce irritation and eliminate chafing, allows for maximum comfort and wearability.
  • Soft, breathable four-way stretch fabric, moisture absorbing, quick drying and non see through.

You can see in

the video, also photos how well made they are, and the small fits like a size 4, so true to size.

I did receive mine for free, and after thoroughly testing them in the gym, I can honestly say that these are the nicest Capris I have.

Fitness Answered Training Products Resistance Bands _ 23 Piece Fitness Band Set _ 7 SNAP PROOF Stackable Workout Kit

I have several sets of resistance bands, but am really loving the Fitness Answered Training 23 piece band set.  They are snap proof, and also stackable.

First off they are so colorful. You get vivid red, green, orange, yellow, black, blue, and pink.

Kit Includes:
 5  lb Band              4) Carabiners
10 lb Band              4) Workout Anywhere Anchor Straps
15 lb Band              1) Door Mount Anchor

25 lb Band              1) Pair Of Orange Handle Attachments
30 lb Band              1) Pair Ankle Attachment
35 lb Band              1) Mesh Carrying Bag

The scrunchy tubing allows for total safely with these bands.  As bands get older they can snap, and injure you.  At the end of each one they have the the weight in lbs. and KG.

If you are new to using them, start light, and gradually increase the weight.  Remember on some exercises you are doubling up the bands, and also the weight.

These can be used at home, or outside, as they have the anchor straps and carabiners.  I love that there are 2 sets of handles, as both my husband and I can workout together.  I haven’t found another set that doubles up for you.

We have had fun trying them out, and I love the door mount anchor, which means I can use them on vacation.  Yes, I walk in the water’s edge

for hours at the beach, but still need to tone my arms, and strengthen my muscles.

These are a fantastic whole workout experience product, and I can highly recommend them.  I am sharing their video from YouTube so that you can see how they all work.  It runs for around 13 minutes, and really helps to get to know the equipment.

I did receive mine for free, and have really tested them, so that I could be totally honest with you.

Keppi Unflavored Collagen Peptides Powder Non-GMO Dietary Supplement for Healthy Skin, Hair and Joints.

I have a Whey protein shake every day, and now add the Keppi Collagen Peptides dietary Supplement to it.  It comes in a 16 fluid ounce can.

The reason for this is that it helps to strengthen bones and improve joints.  With me working out so much, I have knee braces, wrist wraps, etc., for all the wear and tear that I put on them.  It is also great for the skin, and immune system.

As you can see from my photos the scoop is small, and I put one in my shake, with whey protein, Spirulina, fat free/skimmed milk, and half a banana.  The Collagen Peptides is unflavored, so I enjoy chocolate whey protein, with the fruit, to give it a great taste.

From the Amazon website:  ‘Sometimes referred to as the skin’s glue, collagen helps give it strength, plumpness and smoothness. It may also help thicken hair, boost the immune system, regulate sleep, and reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. As you age, natural collagen production wanes. Keppi Collagen Powder contains high levels of protein, offsetting collagen loss for a variety of benefits such as weight management and good gut health. Sourced from the bovine collagen of pasture raised cattle, Keppi is gluten-free, non-GMO and Halal certified.’

I have been using it for a week now, and have had no adverse effects from it.  I am hoping that I will be able to do boxing, and lift weights without my braces, and wraps, but if it happens, it 20170922_161359will take some time.

I was lucky enough to get mine at a discounted price, and if the benefits start showing, then I will buy it, and use it for the rest of my life.

Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E.

I do believe in anti-aging/anti wrinkle products, and use them daily, that it why I wanted to try the Vitamin C Serum Face And Skin Rejuvenation With Hyaluronic Acid And Vitamin E Battles Signs Of Aging By Moisturizing And Boosting Antioxidant Levels For A Wrinkle-Free, Younger, Healthier Look (2oz).

I love that it has Vitamin C and E, as well as Hyaluronic Acid.  All of these help with wrinkles, and aging spots.  If you have seen photos of me, you will see at age 69, I have both, but what I feel this serum does, is to slow down this process.  I know it is not a miracle product, and do not expect to see improvement.  However, anything is better than not using an anti-aging product.

From the Amazon website:

• Vitamin C – This is one of the most essential vitamins to keep the skin protected and healthy. Its main function is to maintain high collagen levels which help to repair damaged skin such as acne scars or sunburn.
• Vitamin E – Aids in the removal of toxins from your skin. It provides advanced environmental protection from damaging free-radicals and repairs the cells to give the skin a healthier look. Vitamin E is a key in keeping your natural glow and to ward off signs of natural aging.
• Hyaluronic Acid – Helps increase firmness and replenish lipids to visibly reduce wrinkles by boosting antioxidants and stimulating the synthesis of collagen production. Collagen helps to keep your skin tight, fights off wrinkles and age spots.’

It comes in a 2 ounce brown bottle with a dropper.  The serum is thicker than water, but a little too runny for my liking. It tends to drip down.  It has a pleasant smell, that disappears quickly.  I use a moisturizer on top of mine.  I am happy with it, and will continue using it.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, and chose to write a review about it.

Get relief from the HOT & COLD THERAPY GEL PACK – Reusable Freezable Microwavable by Foxxgel

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I am a fitness fanatic, and often that causes pain.  I do have a heat pad, and also freezer bags to use, but neither work that good.  Therefore I wanted to try the Foxxgel Hot & Cold Therapy Gel Pack.

For hot relief it goes in the microwave for 30 seconds, and then le

t it cool for 30 seconds before applying it to the area.  Depending on the power of the microwave you might need to do it for a few seconds more.  Mine is 1,100 watts, and that works out good for me.

From the website: ‘HOT & COLD THERAPY GEL PACK – Reusable Freezable Microwavable for Injuries and Pain Relief – Adjustable Elastic Velcro Strap for Neck Shoulder Back Arm Wrist Hand Thigh Knee Calf Ankle Foot’.

My pain is usually in my left shoulder from boxing.  It feels really good with the heat. I find it difficult to apply a heat pad to it.  The Gel Pack has straps with Velcros, so you can adjust it as you need to.

For cold therapy it goes in the freezer for a minimum of 2 hours, and can stay in as long as you wish.  Before use, wrap it in a towel, and then apply it to the area that needs relief.

I have tried both, and they work great.

I did receive this product at a discounted price, and wanted to share my experience with you.

Boxing on an upside down Bosu Ball

This was me today.

https://www.facebook.com/susie.34668#

My trainer tells me that there are only a couple of videos of Advanced fight training on a BOSU ball, so wanted to prove to you all that it can be done.  This is my first attempt, and I can only get better, and faster.  Also planning on doing more moves too.  I have always loved doing squats on it, while lifting weights.

I was asked it I had another other videos for people not on Facebook.  This is one I took as a selfie.

 

For Severe Dry Cracked Heels Urea Cream 20% – Intensive Fast Healing -Safe For Diabetics – Exfoliates Thick Dead Skin On Heels, Feet, Hands & Elbows Too – Soothes, Softens, Hydrates, Renews 3.6 oz

My husband has been a diabetic for 43 years, and has neuropathy of the feet.  This causes pain, numbness, tingling, cracking, and sometimes open sores.  That is why I keep trying new creams for him.

The day we received this cream I passed it over to him.  He had a couple of sores on the bottom of one foot, and both of them look cracked.  As you can see in the photos, there has been much improvement.

The cream is fairly thick, and a small amount is plenty for each foot.  It rubs in easily, and isn’t greasy.  Hubby wears socks 24/7 as his feet have

little circulation, and this keeps them warm.

He has tried R/x medications, and they don’t help his feet.  I am pleased that the Foot Finish Ultra Moisturizing Cream with Urea, has at least helped with the cracking, and sores.

I did receive this item at a discount, and chose to write a review about it.

One Elevated Vital Ultimate Pre-Workout Supplement with Organic Booster, Mango-Peach Flavor, 270 Grams

I have been using the VITAL Pre-Workout now for several months. I take the full scoop of powder with my water, and can say that it has really upped my performance. I now feel like a real boxer, and can do full rounds with my trainer. He pushes me all the time, and my body can take it. I love my bigger, firmer muscles, and put a lot of it down to this great product.

I firmly believe in it, and just opened another container of my favorite pre-workout supplement.

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t workout.  Therefore I need to both fuel my body as well as using a pre-workout supplement.  That is why I have been using the Vital Ultimate Pre-Workout Supplement with Organic Booster, Mango-Peach Flavor, 270 Grams.

I really have to be careful what ones I use, because many have given me shaking in my stomach, made me throw up, and given me a headache.

I am 5 ft 6 inches, weigh 110 lbs., so instead of using the 1 scoop with 6 –  8 ounces of water, I went with a quarter of a scoop.  That was 5 days ago, and I was at the gym, in the boxing room.  I took it 30 minutes before working out, and by the end of my session I was sweating.

On the Monday, we had doctor’s appointments, and lots of errands, so I…

Not a one size fits all product – Adjustable knee brace support – GROOFOO Non-slip & Human mechanics Knee Brace Sleeve Wrap

I am a gym rat, and workout every day.  Around 5 months ago I injured my right knee.  I didn’t want to have shots in it, so used creams, and a knee brace.  When I saw the  Adjustable knee brace support – GROOFOO Non-slip & Human mechanics Knee Brace Sleeve Wraps for Outdoor Activities, Tear, Bursitis, Arthritis, Joint Pain Relief, Injury Recovery – GF033, I figured it was worth a try.  As you can see in my photos, you place it on your knee, and then pull the Velcros straps across the bottom, and top.

The first time I did it they were loose, so the next time I pulled them tighter, and had a little bunching in the front of the wrap.  I am 5.6 inches, and weigh 110 pounds of muscle, so maybe it wasn’t made for me.  When my husband tried it, and he is 60 pounds heavier than me, it fitted him perfectly. Therefore I would suggest that if you are medium through extra large, this should be perfect for you.

It is a little thicker than the one I have been wearing, so the quality is excellent. Please note that on Amazon it says wraps, but there is only one.

I did receive this product at a discount, and this is my honest opinion.

Alpha Omega 3: Free Fatty Acid Form Omega 3 EPA & DHA – 4.5 Times More Effective than Fish Oil – Contains Omega 3 EPA & DHA, Astaxanthin, L-Lysine, Vitamin D3 & Vitamin B12

I take 3 maximum strength fish oil each day, so was interested in trying the Alpha Omega 3 capsules, to see if they work as well, or even better.

I have been taking them for a week, and the suggested amount is 2 a day, so one in the morning, and another at night.

As you can see in my photos, the fish oil is bigger, and I take more.  Because the fish oil has liquid in the capsule, sometimes I get that fish taste in my mouth, and it tastes awful.  With the Alpha Omega 3 capsules it is powder inside, so that can never happen.  That is such a big bonus for me.

Fish Oil really does lower my cholesterol, which always used to be around 220.  It is supposed to be 200 and below.  I am pleased to say that my last blood work showed 189.

A little from the Amazon  webpage about this product:

‘THE PERFECT FORM OF OMEGA 3 EPA & DHA; 4.5 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN FISH OIL: – Free Fatty Acids form has 95% or Higher Absorption Rate and Is Instantly Dissolved, Eliminating Stomach Discomfort and Burps. Only 21% of standard fish oil is absorbed.’

After my next blood draw, I will update this review, and let you know how it is working.

For more information please check out the link below.

I did receive this product for free, and as you can see from above, it works so much better than I one I was taking.
