Sweating, or perspiring in response to an exercise activity is actually healthy as it secretes a hormone known as endorphins; a chemical that reduces stress, boost self-esteem and improves sleep. With that being said, it is likely to know and notice that endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, thus makes us happy or euphoric.

However, when we sweat, we also release some bacteria that is why sometimes our body-sweat is accompanied by a foul-smelling odor.  Some ladies just sweat a lot! I mean literally, excessively sweating; And it’s just too uncomfortable for them while working. In this article we gathered some of the best deodorants that could help with our fellow CrossFitters, and not just that! They are all natural 😉paraben free and no other cell damaging ingredients involved. So, let’s just jump right into it! 😀

  • Native Coconut & Vanilla Deodorant. This particular deodorant gained rave reviews online. I will not be surprised! Just look how moisturizing and gentle the formulation is. They’re paraben-free, leave no residue, and won’t get clumpy under your underarms, so liberating when you raise your arms 😉. Our one reader recommended this and she said, “I also ❤️ Native. The vanilla coconut smells soooo good”.

  • Tom’s of Maine Natural Strength Deodorant, Fresh Powder. “Our Passion is Natural. Your care is personal”, wow! that one is a good slogan! They are one of the best and most love deo out there!

Incredibly impressive! This brand only releases two years ago, 2017 but it is actually giving us reasons to love their product. Paraben and aluminum free, and the first deo that is safe to use in other parts of the body! And if you are concern in having rashes, don’t worry no more! As it has no baking soda ingredient involved! Yuppieee! One Cross Fitters commented, “LOVE Lume! Honestly the best deodorant I’ve ever used. I didn’t experience any sort of ‘detox’ period’.
  • Primal Pit Paste.” I love my primal pit paste deodorant! There was no detoxing phase for me though. Best change ever next to changing to their tooth paste!”; this is the comment of one reader/CrossFitter in the group. This brand has received tremendous awards including: VEGNEWS Magazine – Best Fitness product of 2013, Best SKIN CARE – Paleo Magazine 2014, CosmoProf Beauty Pitch winner – 2016, Best Paleo Body Care – Paleo Magazine 2016. You see guys this brand has been proven out its content already, this is not just your typical “natural, aluminum-free deodorant” but this one actually works!
Primal Pit Paste
  • Routine. Everything in our list is purely natural and safe for our body to use but one thing that this brand caught our attention is that it is one of the deodorants who doesn’t test on animals. So much respect for this brand! Of course, we all want to look good that’s why we all have this beauty products here and there, but being mindful of our whole environment including animals’ safety should be our concern too! Another thing, they have packaged their deodorant in glass jars, meaning less plastic (plus they’re beautiful and can be reused!). The commitment to the environment is very visible as you can see how they manufacture their products. “I’ve been using Routine. It’s an all-natural charcoal deodorant from Canada. I love it and I sweat a lot as well. Takes time to transition to chemical free but worth it!”.
Routine Deodorant
  • Secret, Clinical Strength. “Clinical Strength Secret….the only thing that works for me!”. There’s no secret in secret; Just like any other natural deo, it is aluminum free yet it refreshes you all day long. It defeats both sweat and odor at the same time. Most antiperspirant just minimize the odor of your armpit however; secret minimizes your sweat flow too! Amazing combo!

  • PiperWai Natural Deodorant. Famous for their stint on Shark Tank, here comes the original as the PiperWai was one of the first to bring natural deodorant to the masses. For better application this deo comes in a pot, so you’ll need to apply it with your fingers, like you would a face cream. I personally preferred this way!

Made out from the owners’ kitchen herself; this brand makes sure to deliver the best product for our underarms so they even partnered with small farms to ensure that they receive the best materials, without compromising their dedication to the environment. They do not just offer deo’s, but they do also have other organic face and body products including cleansers, toners, moisturizers, bath soaking salts, hand and body wash. It contains superfine vegetable powders and clays to absorb sweat, along with lavender, peppermint, and tea tree essential oils to mask any odors. A good pick for me!

It uses pure essential oils to omit bad odors. “It’s free from synthetic preservatives and fragrances, colorants, and raw materials derived from mineral oils.” For its worth, essential oils have been proven to restore and cure certain body concerns; With that being said, Weleda is a real deal here!

Does using a weightlifting belt mandatory? There is no rule actually whether it is required, but when we think logically, every CrossFitter should wear weightlifting belts because it has a good purpose for such activity; belts are meant to use to brace against and support your core and spine and if used properly, it gives your core the reminder to stay tight when lifting or squatting weight that is heavier for you. Therefore, it reduces low back stress by compressing the contents of the abdominal cavity. This increases the intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), providing more support in front of the bones of the lower back.

We gathered the best weightlifting belts recommended by our CrossFit readers, these are the weightlifting belts they have proven to be effective and have loved using over the course of time.

Calluses are layers of skin that the body builds up to protect itself from friction and pressure. They are the result of friction in a long-time/consistent basis; so as long as your hands are doing the hard work every day, most likely you have higher chance of getting a callus once in a while. You can identify lots of activities that can cause having calluses but the most common causes are from manual labor, and working out.

As someone who loves working out, this lifestyle is inevitable and you’ve got to embrace everything it encompasses but it doesn’t mean that you can’t handle any hurdles along the way.

Here are some expert tips on how you can take care of your hands and prevent those itchy whitish bulges whilst still doing your workout routine.

  • Do not over-gripping. For a starter, sometimes we tend to execute too much from what is being asked us to do. Workout rule, observe and learn the proper alignments of your body and the proper execution. If we over-grip, our hands will suffer in the long run.
  • No to having any accessories while working out. Some may say that they feel more confident having their ring or any bracelet with them, I’ll tell you, they are just distractions. It’s better to take them all off so you can just be yourself, and you’ll feel much more lighter during the time of your workout.
  • Moisturize your hand daily or you can use a protective balm. Skin is the largest organ in our body and the most expose too. Moisturizing lotions keeps our skin soft, smooth and gentle, giving our skin added hydration and protection from outside factors, one of which is friction since we are talking about workout related; Meanwhile other potential harms that could affect our skin are: polluted air and too much exposure from the sun.
  • Wear protective gloves. Gloves is a gear and it is very important to be complete with our gears especially if you are having CrossFit and other strenuous activity that includes your hands. Be mindful however to be picky in choosing a glove pair, as sometimes other CrossFitters find it difficult in having a good grip, so I think it all boils down again on which type of gloves suited for your hands and the material being used to fabric it.

And when all else seems impossible to halt the growth of the callus, don’t worry as we have some treatments and remedies, we can do to lessen it and prevent it from growing further.

  • Soak the rough areas in the water. Soaking your calluses in warm water for 20 minutes or so will soften the tissue even further and eventually help you to exfoliate it. The objective is to soften the tissue and prepare the callus, so that you can slough off dead skin cells easily. Just like when we are cutting are nails, it is easier to trim our nails after a shower. Add Epsom salts for better results.
Callus Shaver
  • Exfoliate the thickened skin. Once you have softened the calluses, you can begin to reduce them by exfoliating the thickened skin. Using a pumice stone, callus shaver, or microplane (a gentle grater designed for skin); Work gently to avoid going too deep or cutting yourself. Don’t be that aggressive. Rubbing to hard will only cause another skin problem; patience is really a must.

Take note: Do not use a pumice stone if you have diabetes. Doing so can increase your risk of infection.

Some of the readers comments and suggestions are:

“Soak mine in the bathtub or hot tub and then use a pumice stone. I use Pumie from the cleaning isle in Home Depot. The salon pumice stones are way too smooth so they are useless. I use it about 3 times/week so callouses never get too thick. Leaves them nice and smooth. Don’t cut them. If you over do it, it will take too long to heal and interfere with your training”

“I use nipple cream. Sounds weird, but helps instantly”

“I wear barehand gloves and love them!!”

CrossFit hand repair : Our readers recommend the best ways to take care of your hands after a workout.

Any workouts wouldn’t be complete without the use and help of the perfect gears. One main concern on the side, all of us loves to travel- and who doesn’t? –, during this time, it is a lot more difficult to incorporate workouts or keep on track our fitness routine especially if there is no any nearest gym in your area while you are on tour. Whilst working out is a lifestyle of most of us already, we don’t want to miss getting our body moving and making such an excuse not to work out just because we are traveling is absurd.

Some activities that doesn’t require that much of equipment and basically some of its needed gears are travel friendly 😉 such as: running, doing yoga, dancing, resistance training without the use of the equipment, and jumping rope workouts.

For this article we will be focusing on the recommendations of our readers on what brands of jump ropes they actually love using and which they think are the best in the market!

  • Double Under Wonder– Many of our readers loved this brand as you can have it customized, designed by you; they’re super-fast, super-stylish, and they don’t get lost in the crowd when you’re in a group workout. One of our CrossFitter reader said, Double under wonder! Super cute and custom made. Great customer service too!”

They are the maker of the RX Jump Ropes, which they claimed to be “custom sized to each individual athlete’s height and offers five different cable variations to support multiple tempo and resistance levels; Every rope comes with a patented swivel axis bearing system, custom wrapped handle and pvc coated aircraft cable”.  Our CrossFitters comment to this brand, “I love that I can change the cable as I get better at double under. The weight makes me feel the movement even though I struggle daily”. Some of its awards are:

“The Official Jump Rope of USA Boxing”,
“The Official Jump Rope of USA Wrestling”,
“Voted by Men’s Health Magazine as top 5 Best travel fitness tools of 2016”.

Come on! What are you waiting for! It’s pricey but you’ve got what you paid for.

RX Smart Gear Jump Ropes
  • RPM This cater and gives you four different jumping ropes classification based on your specific activity. They are called as: 1. Sprint, 2. Competition, 3. Scout, 4. Session. Depends on what you need based on the type of jumping exercise you’ll do. If you want the light weight and super easy to carry on, which makes an awesome travel buddy, go for Sprint. For a more aggressive gear which will give you a better A-game, the fastest rope is the Competition. For the middle kind of feels, a smooth buttery RPM feel but with enough amount of weights to let you spice up a bit any double under workout, head over for Scout. Our member said, “I love my RPM Comp rope! It’s uncoated and super-fast. I learned my DUs on a heavier coated rope at the gym but ever since I got this one my DUs have gotten so much better”.
RPM Speed rope
  • WOD Nation speed rope- This particular brand offers an array of workout equipment’s such as Double Under Jump Rope, Resistance Bands and other more Fitness Equipment.

Comes w/ 2 interchangeable cords that can be cut to your best length for your height & doesn’t get tangled or bent up easily. Also has groves in the handle to know where to place your hands for a better grip.” Another one, WOD Nation speed rope. It’s the bomb! Light weight so my forearms last longer before dying on double unders”.

Crossfit Jump Rope : The 7 best ropes chosen by our readers

Weather you prefer either gymnastics, high intensity interval training, olympic weightlifting, calisthenics, having an intense workout (CrossFit), will keep all our body parts moving, and in correlation to this we tend to sweat a lot. A LOT. And as woman, we want to keep and maintain great hygiene. One concern in working out is when our hair gets on our way on our face while doing the exercise; not only it is a hindrance, it can also cause skin damaged or breakouts to our skin especially when we are sweating all over, our oils mixed up with the dirt from the air and once our hair mixed into them, it just gets worse.

Being physically active, we also value our skin as much as any beauty and wellness enthusiasts do. We also care for the overall health and well-being of every CrossFitters. Investing in a good headband suited for you will geared you up completely and pulled up all your hair in your face, for a better performance throughout the workout and of course prevent having skin breakouts.

We gathered up this data based on what our readers and followers think is the best headband for all CrosFitters out there!

  • JUNK bands– Their tagline is “Headbands for every adventure”, which we do believe their claim can be trusted based on what our readers have said. They cater and offer different forms and styles of headband based on your preference and personal use. The best band in their collection is the wide ones, it covers up the entire front and does holds your hair into place. They have medical bands design, rainbow, MLB, florals and some statements bands. Junk bands!! The only ones I’ve found to stay in place. They are the best!”, One reader said.
Junk Headband
  • Sweaty bands– Each headband comprised of velvet backing which comfortably grips hair, while the back has an elastic portion that stretches enough to create a secure, flyaway free hold. Sound really good this headband brand, isn’t it? From the given material used, as someone who loves running and working out, I can picture out myself having a clean face, looking and feeling great while staying active for the entire activity. A comment from one Crossfitter in the group, she said “I like Sweaty Bands. They have a material like velvet on the underneath side so it doesn’t damage hair. They have super cute designs and stay put really well”.

  • Lululemon– This is like any regular headband but it does its work!

They do have different collections too that caters to what you need personally; you can even design your own! What an awesome idea! Their bands are made from their own exclusive technology, Bondi-Max. You can assure of no slip- no drip, as they are known for having a moisture wicking headband. A member and her friends said “My friends recommended Bondi bands and they seem to hold up nicely.”
Bondi Headband
  • RazzyRoo Headband Simple band with playful designs, stylish! I am loving it! this band is enough to pulled up your hair but I am afraid if you have baby hairs go for something wider as it will cover up and secured your entire head. This I can recommend for people who doesn’t have baby hairs and just want a smaller band, because some people are irritated for having a wider band, which seems like pressuring their head. So, this band is better for counted people only.
RazzyRoo Headband
  • MandaBees Headband– Wow! This brand offers a wider and thinner band, which seems like a thin clothing material. It covers up literally until the top of your forehead and due to its thin clothing, it is very light like an air, keeps your hair in placed and at the same time gives you comfort and ease. If you want to be active, looks good and at ease while you are running or doing some active activity, you better try this one!

No matter what type of workout you’re doing — high-intensity cardio, slow paced yoga, or anything in between — working out with your hair in your face is always a nuisance, and a regular ponytail just doesn’t cut it.

Your hair can somehow miraculously wiggle their way out and into your face, and even if the hair survives the whole session without breaking free – the hair under your ponytail can turn into a rat’s nest. We know, ladies – that the struggle is real.

Here are six best (and cheap!) hair ties to try instead.

They work wonders in keeping your hair in place and it doesn’t snag your hair. Quoting from one CrossFitter – “Blax are my favorite. They stay in place, don’t break hair, and you can get clear ones.

With its unique design, it is said that it helps prevent annoying ponytail bumps and hair headaches too! One CrossFitter said “I have long, thin, fine hair, and these work wonders!! I’ve always had an issue with the normal pony tail holders actually holding my hair up (they would always slip or fall out during a workout and I would have to either deal with it or try to put it back up), but these “phone cords” as my husband calls them, works awesome at keeping my hair up during workouts!
