The Heat is Here! Combat it NOW!

Summer has arrived and it's time to attach the Spruzza Mist unit back onto my ride. 
It is a misting system that is mounted and used on my bike. The bracket can be mounted to the underside of the stem on any bicycles handlebars, road bike, tri bike or even a mountain bike. Summer is upon us here in the Sonoran Desert. 



Spruzza is a misting device you squeeze the trigger and allows you to angle the head of the unit so the mist hits your face, neck, or chest, cooling your body down.  The five ounce water reservoir can provide up to 300 squirts of the water mist, so there is plenty usage before having to refill.  After initially setting up the Spruzza on your handlebars, which is very quick and easy to install and comes with all necessary parts to do so. The Spruzza can be removed quickly if you decide you don’t need it for the ride you are going on.  A small “cleat” still stays on the bike with the zip ties attached to it, but the water reservoir and trigger sprayer come off.  The water reservoir is also easy to remove and refill.  The Spruzza delivers a two to three inch diameter spray pattern. 

                       

Check back, as a group ride, with the sweet option to test drive one of these units is right around the corner.

A little rant about headphones, and when not to wear them



 I can relate to listening to music gets you motivated and the time go by faster I guess. 
I just don’t get it.  Why would you risk your safety by wearing earphones while riding a bike in traffic or with other cyclists?  This may seem like a rant and I guess it is.  It could be compared to riding with with one eye shut.  It’s just dumb.  If you have an important phone call your waiting for and that is why you are wearing a headset, then I suggest you don’t ride and wait for the call to come in. 
I often wears earphones while swimming and indoor cycling on a trainer.  I even wear them running, while keeping the sound down in order to hear my surroundings.

U-GYM PRO with discount code for ordering



Along with foam rolling and ice treatments I often combine using a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) to increase healing or help recover from either a day to day workout or injury. 
U-GYM PRO is a portable deep tissue massage device that I use to effectively treat my sore muscles. The U-GYM PRO digital massage mimics massage technique. Connected through Bluetooth, you can control the device through an APP. 



Four modes of operation. 





The device comes with two different lengths of cord as well as using the device with two pads or all four pads.  The APP’s modes are 1. Multipurpose 2. Padding 3. Relaxing and finally 4. Exercising. Yes during exercise you can use this device to help contract the muscle you are working out.  On the unit itself, you can determine the intensity as well as on the APP. 







I would love for you too to use the U-GYM also and increase your recovery time and increase the intensity of your workouts. U-GYM is offering a 5% discount when you use the
