Chaos and Pain: Super Supplements

I’ve been working out for a little over 10 years and have never come across a company or product like Chaos and Pain. Just visiting their website, ChaosandPain.com, feels like you’re stepping into an underground gyms built for men like “The Mountain“!  The names of their products for example inspire stuff of sick psychotic legendary villains! I mean right on their homepage is a banner for “Cannibal Genius” which is explained as a supplement “For when you feel like saying aloud, “I’m so f@#*ing smart that I make smart people feel like they are retarded.” This should give you just a peak at who this company really is!  They make products that go above and beyond and they’re designed to make you into a legitimate HULK!

The company does things differently than most supplement companies. They have decent prices! They don’t hide behind labels and are fairly transparent at what you’re ingesting. This is a very good thing. They offer multiple warnings that their products are not for the weak or timid. This is NOT a marketing tactic. Their products are no joke and will CHANGE you!  Some of their products have been controversial but they still fight to make legal supplements for those looking to make changes!

The company really does put out some extraordinary supplements that are really quite unique.

For example take a look at the Cannibal Permaswole:

Chaos and Pain Cannibal Permaswole Preworkout Supplement Product Review

The description alone makes you feel like you’d be a beast walking through doors instead of opening them and having a pump to make you feel like lifting cars…ALL DAY LONG! The truth it, it IS an amazing pre workout! I love the fact that its stimulant free too!

One other cool supplement is Helios:

Joint support health and fitness supplement Helios from Chaos and Pain

Some of you may be thinking “Joint support? Pshhh Who needs that?!” Well the answer is quite frankly those of us who actually lift heavy weight. Working out with heavy weight will give your joints a beating. This has an incredible blend of anti-inflammatory ingredients that will act fast and last a lot longer than those ibuprofen you’ve been popping. From someone who has knees barely intact after 16 years of soccer, this product is my saving grace in the gym and out!

Check out some of the other jaw droopingly awesome supplements that will blow you away! Oh and don’t forget to use code Fit4Life when shopping to get 20% off all Chaos and Pain products! Consider it a Christmas Present from Gear Guide for Men to you!

Why you should roll your feet out

Why should you massage your feet?

The old saying goes “kick off your shoes and relax”. There is a good reason behind this, your feet handle so much stress it feels good to kick them up and relieve some of the daily constant pressure they endure.  How come we don’t try to rejuvenate them more though? We roll out our entire legs, we massage our backs, necks, heck we even have scalp massagers…but are we taking care of our feet enough? Sure there are the expensive foot massagers and foot baths etc but they aren’t really getting in deep enough to work out the big issues. If you’re not rolling your feet out just like the rest of your body then you’re not taking care of the root of the problem.

Your feet are  the starting point of a line of connective tissue that run along the back of you up to the base of your skull!  This means that any issues with your hamstrings, calves, back and even neck can stem down to your feet! Now are you starting to see why taking care of the issues in your feet can make a big difference all over? If you need further proof here is this video showing the entire superficial back line of fascia, connecting from the feet to just above the eyebrows!  

Theres many different ways to roll out your foot and types of materials to use! Some people use a tennis ball or a golf ball, I like to use these Half Balls. It allows for me to really hit the spots I need and not worry about the ball rolling around. You are going to have to be your own masseuse just like when you roll out. Begin with the sole of your foot and work around monitoring any knots you feel and the pressure you can put on your foot. I personally recommend finding a knot and “sitting” on it for 30 seconds or until you feel the knot “break up”. Yes, this will hurt sometimes so much that you start doing a pregnancy breathing pattern while clenching your fists! When it’s all over though, you will feel a lot better because the base of your entire body has been relaxed and rejuvenated. Be careful not to do this too long or too hard as to damage your foot so please use common sense.

Be sure to add massage your feet into your regimen or do it while you watch TV and you’ll find yourself much happier!
