BodyHelix

The good people at Body Helix reached out to me and asked if I’d like to trial one of their products.  I run about 25-30 miles a week and suffer from shin splints from time to time, so I decided to try their Full Calf Helix to ease my pain.

QUICK REVIEW:

Appearance: B-

Quality: A

Comfort: A

Price/Value: B

Overall: B+

The Full Calf Helix form Body Helix gave me the compression and comfort I’d expect from a high-quality product.  It didn’t slip whether I was agility training or running 6 miles.  The pain in my shin subsided while wearing the Full Calf Helix, and I felt great post-workout, too.

My main knocks on the product are the appearance and price.  The logo is pretty feminine looking, and at $45, the Full Calf Helix is pricier than other options I’ve used.  Bottom-line, though, the Full Calf Helix from Body Helix gets the job done.  I’ll wear a Hello Kitty sleeve on my leg if it means I’m going to be pain-free after an hour on the treadmill.

Body Helix offers several other products, which are made with high-quality materials and do what they’re supposed to.  If they’re not out of your price range and other products have failed you, give them a try.  You can browse the items on their website here: https://bodyhelix.com/

mcgregor diaz ufc 202

After Conor McGregor defeated Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Saturday night, there were a bunch of questions thrown his way in the post fight presser about what his plans are going forward. Will he fight Jose Aldo again and defend his Featherweight title, or maybe jump up to 155 lbs and maybe fight the newly crowned champion, Eddie Alvarez? McGregor said that he has “many things in the “pipeline”.

Let’s take a look at some of the options he has going forward.

5 characters no one's ever heard of and that chick everyone dressed up as for Halloween.

5 characters no one’s ever heard of and that chick everyone dresses up as for Halloween.

 

Fresh off the heels of the somehow successful “Batman V Superman”, DC continues to expand it’s cinematic universe with a movie about a bunch of characters that even a hardcore comic book fan such as myself is not even entirely sure he’s ever heard of. “Suicide Squad” is a movie, and that might be the best statement I can make about it.  OK, that’s a lie.  It certainly wasn’t bad, in fact it came close to being good. Unfortunately too much Jared Leto and a villain that made no freaking sense ruins everything.

Votto

The Major League Baseball trading deadline has come and gone. Multiple players have shifted from team to team and this always puts added stress on the players who are on the “trading block”. Did that stress get to Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto? Maybe. Votto wasn’t exactly on the trading block, but his teammate Jay Bruce was.
