Tested: Yes4All AccuPoint Foam Roller

Upon first glance, you might think that the Yes4All AccuPoint Roller is a cheaper alternative to the Grid or Rumble Roller. After all, it has the solid PVC core for durability and the foam knobs for a deep massage, at a surprisingly low price. I needed something

Tested: YogaSmoga Nirvana Short (Finally Some Men’s Yoga Clothing!)

If you’re a man, you’re going to face two challenges when shopping for yoga apparel. First, it’s all really expensive. With running and cycling, you can get basic options, fancy stuff, or anything in between, depending on your budget. With yoga, the choice is between the high-end

Tested: Omnibar

Very few energy bars contain just a handful of ingredients. Even fewer contain sweet potatoes. And fewer still contain beef and sweet potatoes. Needless to say, the Omnibar is not your typical energy bar. Sure, it comes in a bright wrapper, and it’s a long and thin

Tested: Pure Provisions Turkey Jerky

How do you find snacks to take with you on your adventures? If you’re like most people, you grab whatever looks good at the grocery store. If you’re like me, you examine labels, run the numbers, research the sources of the ingredients, analyze the manufacturing methods, and

Tested: Bike2Power BikeCharge Power Pack

Before smartphones became so prevalent in our daily lives, there was only one reason to carry a phone along on your adventures. For emergency phone calls, obviously. Today, people are carrying their phones to help them navigate, to record their rides and runs on Strava, and to

Tested: Caveman Cookies (North Pole Flavor Out Now!)

Virtually everyone loves cookies. And even if you don’t love cookies, you probably can’t resist eating them, because it’s so easy to grab one – no utensils, no mess, no will power. It wouldn’t be a great idea to eat cookies on a daily basis, but the

Tested: Satechi Pro RideMate Waterproof Bike Mount for Smartphones

Carrying a smartphone while riding is not something I usually recommend, especially if you have an expensive phone that’s going to cost you a lot of money out-of-pocket to replace. But there are times it makes sense to carry a smartphone with you. Perhaps you need navigation

Tested: RockTape + RockSauce

Remember the 2008 Summer Olympics when Kerri Walsh came out with some weird tape all over her shoulder? Back then, hardly anyone knew about kinesiology tape. Fast forward to today, and you see the tape everywhere! Pro athletes and weekend warriors alike are using the tape to

Tested: Element Hatha & Flow Yoga For Beginners DVD

There was always a big disconnect between what I’d do when following along with yoga DVDs at home compared to what I’d do in an actual yoga class. The yoga DVDs I’ve used have typically been good workouts that also improved my flexibility and helped me relax.

Tested: CEP Progressive+ Compression Run Socks 2.0

It couldn’t have been all that long ago that there were just a few main sports companies offering compression socks and sleeves for improved race performance. 2007 or 2008 I think it was. I remember CEP, CW-X, and Zensah being the prominent brands when I was first

Book Review: The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances by Matthew Inman (The Oatmeal)

Running is one of those sports people hate. They hate it so much that they have to constantly talk about why they run, in order to convince themselves to go for another run. To hear some people talk about running, you’d think it must be the most

Tested: KOOEE! Super Snacks Jerky Trail Mix

I’ve had beef jerky, turkey jerky, elk jerky, moose jerky, and venison jerky, but this is my first time biting into Tasmanian Devil jerky! OK, not really. It’s actually beef jerky. But the cows are from Tasmania, and I grew up watching the Looney Tunes, so what

Tested: Nice Laundry Men’s Dress Socks

I see dress socks as a necessary evil. As much as I love socks, I’ve never been excited about them. And how could I be, with a drawer full of beautiful creations from Darn Tough, DeFeet, Sock Guy, Thorlos, Patagonia, and Balega, to name a few? When

Book Review: FASTER: The Obsession, Science and Luck Behind the World’s Fastest Cyclists

I always wanted two things during my racing career. One, to get more cute girls cheering me on. And two, to go faster. Generally speaking, I had to go faster in order to get more cheers, so I centered my lifestyle around making myself and my bicycle

Tested: Balega Socks

Thinking back over the years, I can’t recall buying socks from a running socks company. All my running socks were from companies that made my favorite biking and hiking socks. The one exception now is Balega. They make running socks. You go to their website, you see
