October’s Barbella Box did not disappoint!
The Chestee Sports Bra
A padded bra but not in the way you might think. These sports bras have extra padding on the chest (not boobs) to help prevent bruising during workouts. Think doing front squats and cleans. The chest and collarbones can easily get bruised during those movements and Chestee helps keep that to a minimum.
We were asked specifically to provide measurements to make sure that we received the right size. Chestee says that they want their bras to be snug and a little on the tight side. I provided the proper measurements but there was a part of me that thought I should have gone up a size. I was right. The bra fits but it’s super snug, so much so, that I had to have Scott help me take it off. Fun for him, not for me. I’ll have to try it again once I lose a few inches.
These are little sleeves that go over your thumbs to help prevent chaffing and blisters during workouts where you’re using a hookgrip. They are fantastic! I use them for deadlifts and love them. Seriously, I’m such of fan of these guys. They do take some getting used to because they make your thumb a little bigger, so there is some adjustment but it doesn’t take long.
Bruise-Be-Gone by Pulse Skin
10ml roll-on bottle made with essential oils along with good for your vitamins. This stuff is perfect and the roll-on makes it easy to apply. I had just got done doing a crap ton of front squats and rolled this guy all over my shoulders because that’s where I tend to bruise up. It didn’t take the bruises away but helped make the area less tender and the bruises didn’t stick around as long.
Koios drink by Mental Titan
Energy drink infused with MCT oil to help provide energy and mental clarity. You guys know, I don’t drink supplement or energy drinks so I don’t have any feedback to provide you.
Ginger Tea and Candies from Prince of Peace
There’s no website for this company (that I could find) but a google search will bring up places that you can purchase it from. The candies are hard ginger candies and tea is crystallized ginger pieces that make a quick tea. I haven’t tried them out yet but am really curious about the tea!
I loved this box! Aside from not being able to use The Chestee right now, it’s a great bra that I can’t wait to try out. The nubs are always in my bag ready to go and the bruise be gone is great stuff!
If you’re looking to treat yourself or someone you know this holiday season, snag a Barbella Box! It’s such a great variety of goodies for the female lifter.
