Weekly Theme: Summer Workouts

Summer workouts can be the best and the worst. They’re the best because it’s easy to warm up, and running outside is way better when it’s warm out. They’re the worst because when it’s too hot, it’s easy to over heat, get sweat in your eyes, and it can take a lot longer to cool down afterwards. So to help with the pitfalls of working out in the summer heat, we have items this week that will relieve some of the issues. To start off, let’s keep the sweat out of your eyes. Hats can be too hot and get in the way during overhead workouts, but headbands, like this one from Junk (an industry standard), is a perfect way to keep your hair and sweat out of your eyes and face. Don’t stop mid-workout to wipe your face every 30 seconds, keep the sweat above your brow with a high-performance headband.

Weekly Theme: Gettin’ Sandy

What else is left to make sure you make the best out of a beach trip? Where you’ll sit for the majority of your venture- your sandy throne. This 5 position beach chair from Rio Brands (the company that makes Tommy Bahama and Margaritaville furniture) is the ultimate beach companion. Not only does it have backpack straps for carrying it to the beach (which is critical), it has an arm rest pouch for your phone and drink, a cooler pack attached to the back for your beachy brews and snacks, and an extra pocket for your speaker, sunscreen and sunglass case, so you don’t have to bring a beach bag with you. We also like this one because you can throw the back of this bad boy all the way down for a nap without worrying about the coming tides. Be the king of your patch of sand this summer with the throne that helps you get there with the least amount of hassle and makes beach life the most convenient.

Sun Bum Sunscreen Review

Weekly Theme: Gettin’ Sandy

Of course if you’re going to be one the beach, in the sun, looking cool, and feeling warm, you need to protect your skin from the sun. More than that, you don’t want to dry out your skin in that intense summer heat. Sun Bum helps with both of these, it is a moisturizer and a sunscreen. You will need both to keep the burn away, and the peeling at bay. An added bonus is that Sun Bum doesn’t have that classic Coppertone chemical lotion smell, but a summer scent with a hint of coconut and pineapple.

Blue Crown Pocket Tank Top Review

via Tillys.com

via Tillys.com

Weekly Theme: Gettin’ Sandy

When it’s hot, you gotta let the shoulders out, 1. to avoid the dreaded t-shirt tan, 2. for temperature control, and 3. to show off all of the Winter and Spring gains you collected at the gym. If you are going to rock the beach-day tank anywhere but on the beach, make sure that it fits well, isn’t too busy with a wild graphic, and is in a color that won’t make too much noise because your newly jacked delts and triceps should be doing all of the talking. In addition, the pocket and the contrast hemming add just a little bit of character for the tank not to be boring in the case your upper limbs aren’t saying what you want them to.

Weekly Theme: Gettin’ Sandy

How else do we start a week about getting sandy than with some killer sandals. You’ve likely heard of Rainbows back when you were in high school, they were the cool kid flip flops. Well, they are coming back to the forefront, and are just as comfortable as ever. They don’t have any bells and whistles, but they offer great arch support (which is rare in a sandal) and are one of the few sandals you can wear all day that don’t mess up your feet or your back. Save the $1 old navy flip flops for the communal showers at camp grounds, and grab these for your days and nights near the beach or out in the park.
