Product Review: Quick Dry Men's Compression Tights (US Size)

I have been needing a new pair of compression running tights for a while now. However, I am also on the cheap side (well I call it economic side). That said, when I got a chance to review these I was all for it.



Let's start with price: These are selling for $21.99 on amazon. I believe that is a fair price for them, if you have ever researched compression tights then you know they can range from $10-$100 dollars depending on the quality, name brand etc... While, I won't say these are the best compression shorts ever I do believe $21.99 is a good price for them.

Comfort: These are definitely comfortable and fit well. I like them, really nothing bad to say about them at this point. The Parateck men's compression shorts are made from 82% nylon and 18% spandex. The compression level is 18-25mmHG and they provide support and reduce the muscle fatigue and soreness of muscles. 

They can be found here Parateck compression shorts    if anyone is interested in getting a pair. 

I didn't want to take a picture in them as I did not want to expose myself but they fit like the ones in the amazon ad.  

But to the seriousness, I received this product for free or at a reduced rate in return for this review. 
It is honest and my opinion of the mentioned above product. 

Thanks,

1st trackmeet of the year!

I've been saying it over and over and I feel like I'm making excuses but I'm just so disappointed that my season opener was a skewed event. Anyone that knows anything about track knows that you want to get atleast a 30minute warmup in to make sure your body is primed to run as fast as possible. Truth be told, an hour warm up is more like normal for most people. But here I am, learning that the event schedule had been changed on the fly and the 100m is being contested pretty much ASAP. Due to time constraints this was pretty much the main race I wanted to run, yeah I was contemplating running the 400 also but honestly, NOBODY wants to run the 400 on purpose, especially if you haven't really been training for it.  So for those 10 minutes I waivered between not running and running because hell, this was the reason why I came here right!

In my younger years, I'm sure I could hop out of the car and run 11 seconds with no problem. However, in these days I have some Achilles issues that require me to warm them up and hell, it just takes me an extra second to get going these days. Ah well, I went against my better judgement and ran anything. Not my best effort. But, I did finish healthy. No injuries and happy to get a competitive run under my belt. More to come! 12.33.

Product Review: Aqua Spa's High-power 9.5" Rainfall Showerhead w/ Individual Angle-adjustable Swivel Jets

Aqua Spa's High-power 9.5" Rainfall Showerhead w/ Individual Angle-adjustable Swivel Jets 

Want to upgrade your shower experience? You can for less than $20.00, well atleast before taxes and shipping and handling depending on if you have amazon prime or not.  I received this rainfall shower head with individual swivel jets at a reduced rate in return for my review. When I saw the multiple shower heads I was immediately sold, and the chrome finish was just the icing on the cake. I am always looking for ways to upgrade the look of my bathroom without breaking the bank so this was a good fit.  
Installation was very easy. It look longer to take the old shower head off than it did for me to install the new one. Best part is you can hand tighten it and walk away without having to worry about any leaking. Everything needed for installation was included inside of the packaging. 

At the moment, I really have nothing bad to say. If something arises I will be sure to update my review but for now, ease of use, the look, and the price are all win-win in my book. So if you are in the market for a new shower head, do yourself a favor and check this one out!

What's new in BEAUCOUPFIT WORLD

What's up y'all. If you are reading this I want to say thank you for coming through. I've been pretty dormant lately when it comes to the blogging but I have been active in indeed.

Dr. Sebi Diet-

It's probably been about 2 months now since we have been doing the diet. My wife admittedly has been a little more steadfast on it than I am, but I have stuck to the major tenants of it for the most part. Specifically, not eating meat.  I have been adding a little fish into my diet though and most weekends are the days where I will be eating either Drum or  Red fish.  Initially, I dropped down from like 208 to 194lbs. My weight has crept up a bit to a 200lb range but that in my opinion is due to the chips and chocolate candy, YES I DID SAY CANDY, that has been sneaking itself into my diet. Bad vices and a perfect illustration of how what you eat has a bigger effect on your weight than the amount of exercise you do.  I say this because I am still getting my workouts in and haven't really slacked off in my opinion.


Master's Track and Field Training-

My first eye balled meet is about May 27th here in New Orleans. I am nervous and anxious at the same time. I haven't even touched my speed training but I have been feeling pretty good in my workouts. That said, the consistency that I feel is needed when it comes to track and field has definitely been lacking.  As I train my clients 6-7 days a week, it is sometimes hard to find that time or energy or both to go to the track and get in a good 1-1.5 running workout.  I have been getting my track days in about a good 1 or 2 days a week but I remember the days of 5-6 days a week so I am questioning whether my conditioning is at competition level sharpness. I guess time will tell but it is definitely ticking closer to the deadline.



Group Workouts-
 My group workouts are still going strong.  Monday and Wednesday at City Park for $8.00
and Tuesday and Thursdays are free. If you are interested feel free to give me a buzz or email beaucoupfit@gmail.com



One on One workouts-
I had been meeting a lot of my clients at Planet Fitness however they are getting pretty serious about not wanting independent trainers working in there spot these days.  My work around had been to "workout" with the people I meet there as opposed to "training" them there but I feel my time over there may be coming to a head.  I am still available for City Park, Walnut Square, Joe Brown Park and other locations but the Planet Fitness option is now basically off the table. Sorry for any inconvenience this may bring. But you have to be able to adapt as life sometimes works that way.
