Breast Foot Forward; Optimizing Performance with the Right Gear

SPONSORED POST

According to the National Runner Survey, female runners compromise an astounding 63% of all running event participants surveyed in 2017. The average miles per week reported were reported 21 miles. With over 6,000 participants surveyed, that translates as thousands of boobs bouncing, slamming, sweating, and sloshing during training and events. And while there is no shortage of marketing campaigns surrounding gear for female runners and gym-goers alike, the modern day sports bra has changed dramatically since the Jockbra of 1977. Gone are the days of two jockstraps sewn together in an attempt to hold the girls up.  Despite the fact that modern sports bras are seen as an adornment, the sports bra has become an essential piece of gear for optimized performance and not just for busty girls either! You spend good money on the perfect pair of shoes to protect your feet and ensure optimal performance, so why would you skimp on a sports bra that protects an equally important asset?

Regardless of your chest size, gravity is working during exercise and I hate to break it to you, but it is NOT in your favor girl. Supporting your chest is crucial to not only performing the exercise correctly and as efficient as possible but also to allow you to focus solely on the exercise without having to worry about being uncomfortable up top. Whether you are performing high impact or low impact exercises, finding the right support is crucial. If you are busty up top and are performing higher impact exercises such as running or jumping, you may need to find a sports bra that provides a bit of compression to keep the girls in place. If you are reading this and think you don’t need to worry because you have a smaller chest, hold that thought! Before you reach for any old sports bra, think about your nipples! Running with a poorly designed sports bra can cause nipple chaffing. Ouch! Some women also experience chaffing from the bottom of their sports bras when they aren’t designed properly. Bottom line is no amount of chaffing cream before a race or event will outperform a quality sports bra, such as those made by Knix. So make sure you choose a sports bra that fits properly that provides support with performance-enhancing material. Your boobs will thank you!

Giant Gear Guide: OCR Clothing Tips for Tall Athletes

The Giant Abominable Snowman

Height seems to have a corner on most of the sporting world. From football to volleyball, track to….what’s that sport again….oh yea..basketball. Height seems to be a central topic in most of the sporting universe. There is one nook within the wide world of sports, however, that appears unconcerned with the topic altogether. Yes, our wonderful world of Obstacle Course Racing. It just makes sense; OCR athletes need to be nimble, agile and compact. Not necessarily the descriptions used to portray those of us that are a tad more “extended” than the rest. As a result, most of the best OCR competitors are not extremely tall.

So where does that leave those of us who are likely to drag our feet while hanging from the monkey bars? Perhaps, the reason that we haven’t seen more giants in the sport is even more simple than physiological parameters. Maybe it is because the Giant OCR athletes just aren’t able to find the right sized gear! We are going to change that. As probably one of the world’s tallest OCR athletes and as someone whose nickname around the office is “The Bumble,” I have spent 5 years curating and crafting the ultimate Giant Gear Guide.  Today, I’m going to share my top OCR Clothing Tips for Tall Athletes with you and the real Bumble alike! Let’s bounce right into it!

About The Giant Author

For reference and for the purposes of this guide, my vital measurements are as follows. I am 6’7” (2 meters), I wear a size 15 shoe (49 UK) with a 38-39 inch sleeve length and have a 36-inch inseam. I am a certifiable, if such things were possible, giant.

Giant OCR Shoes

Having an elongated frame tends to lead to feet in proportions that resemble those found on the cast of the iconic McDonaldland commercials.

To put it less eloquently, tall people tend to have large feet. At times they are called boats, sometimes shoe boxes, other times clown shoes…you get the drift. Size 14 and 15 large.  Coincidentally,  the single most important purchase Obstacle Course Racer’s of any variety can make is the combination of cloth and rubber that covers those lengthened hooves. So far, three brands stand above the crowd and provide amazing solutions to our unique requirements.

Altra Running

A staple in the Ultra Runner community and the recently announced shoe partner of Spartan Race, Altra shoes are a part of the “maximalist” movement that provides unbelievably cushioned shoes combined with a roomy footbed and ridiculous drainage capabilities. Fortunately for the giants, they are available in sizes 14, 15 and 16! (Pro tip: Altra’s Fit extremely true to size)

Hoka One One

The founding architect of the hyper cushioned, maximalist genre, Hoka One One is a brand that offers shoes with top-notch cushion, super flashy colors and a more traditionally shaped toe box. The only reason they don’t receive top-billing is because when it came to hooking up the tall OCR athlete, they didn’t go the distance and go to a size 16. The good news is that their 14 and 15‘s are beyond amazing!

Merrell

On the other side of the “stack-height” conversation is a brand made famous for creating minimalist, lightweight footwear. Merrell now offers a wide variety of options for those of us who prefer to roll, jump and sprint in the mud. As an Official Sponsor of Tough Mudder and a brand with a history of innovation, Merrell offers up a slew of options in the size categories that readers of this article would be interested in. Size 14 and Size 15, respectively.

Giant OCR Socks

A great pair of socks makes a world of difference in the sport of Obstacle Course Racing.

If they are too short, it can lead to dirt building up in the footbed.

When they are too thin, it can lead to discomfort, blisters and a painful week following a race.

Should they be too small, they are simply too small and we live in a world where we no longer have to wear things that are too small!

The following brands understand and create giant-sized solutions to erase the aforementioned issues from existence.

Stance

Enter Stance, they specialize in high-quality socks of all varieties and types. From licensed NFL, NBA and MLB teams, to specific Athletes such as James Harden and Klay Thompson and musician Rihanna. They even have Seinfeld and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air socks, if those properties are of any interest. Suffice it to say, when it comes to gear for your feet, Stance has you covered. For running they offer a ton, but the type that rises above the rest of the fray is their selection of XL-sized, perfectly cushioned and stylish stockings. Stance XL Socks

UNCOMMON SOLIDS WOOL CREW

Stance Uncommon Solids Wool Crew – $22

Injiji

This stalwart in the Triathlon, Ultra, Trail Runner world should also be a constant part of your pre-race gear checklist. Injiji socks are unique in their design due to fact that they have individual sleeves for each toe. The hypothesis for this concept is that the design reduces the potential for blisters and helps to increase the breathability between toes in order to ensure a dry, comfortable and cushioned experience through whatever activity you are into. Lucky for us, these things are as a good as advertised and better yet, are available in over 23 glorious XL versions.

Outdoor Original Weight Crew NuWool- $18

Giant OCR Compression Shorts

Underwear. Most everyone wears them, but only in the sport of Obstacle Course Racing is it completely socially acceptable to frolic through the woods in them alone! If we giants are going to go this route, we need to protect ourselves not only from chaffing, but also our fellow racers being traumatized due to the gangly appendages on display while wearing traditionally sized offerings. That’s where these compression shorts for giants come in!

Under Armour

A brand built on making better undershirts has also perfected underwear. Under Armour’s Boxerjock line includes a version with a 9-inch inseam that is vital to helping us accomplish the aforementioned concerns. Wear them under shorts or as shorts, either way, your comfort is literally guaranteed. My personal favorites can be found at UnderArmour.com

MudGear

With a name like MudGear, it comes as no surprise that this brand is focused on all things muddy. No Gear Guide for Giants would be complete without mentioning their 9-inch inseamed compression shorts! Find them here!

Giant Bonus Tip:

Giant Problem Solver: Lock Laces

If you are over 6′ feet tall, you know how difficult it is to bend over and tie your shoes on a non-race or training day. Now imagine your shoe comes untied in the middle of a race. The mud, water, and fatigue combined with bending over is sure to make you completely light headed and add costly minutes to your results. Lock Laces has the perfect solution! Simply install them before your run, slide the lock into place and never worry about your shoelaces coming untied ever again! That is, of course, unless that pesky Jack comes around to say otherwise.

Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk

Thanks to this Guide, the giant is ready to chase down Jack!

 

The Giant Finish

I hope that you, my fellow giants found this guide to be of use. Go gear up for a race in the near future and begin the inevitable process of Giant domination in Obstacle Course Racing! And if that domination never materializes, that’s o.k. too. At least you will compete in more comfort, more stability, and more confidence as a result of having the right sized gear! And if you have found anything that I should add to this list, please shout it out in the comments!

When you come to Obstacle Races, you always come by driving your huge vehicle that is built specifically for adventure. It’s lifted, which is awesome, but not needed because races almost always have these really fancy parking lots that barely get your car dirty at all. Races are also one of the best places out there for cleanliness- every race spends so much time and energy into building these glorious showers. The showers are built in a way where the ground doesn’t re-muddy up your feet or shoes when you’re done. The water is always warm, and of course, you’re always able to get completely clean the first time.

If you couldn’t tell, that entire paragraph was sarcastic. This is BARELY the case.

If you’re anything like me, you straight up dread the drive to races. I drive a Corolla, which, for those of you who aren’t familiar with cars, this car is pretty low to the ground. I always get stuck in the grassy lots. My car looks like a total disaster, and it makes me cringe. I feel like after I run, not only do I need to clean myself extensively, but my car too.

Of course, let’s talk about the actual race, too. In some races, the directors HOPE to get you as muddy as possible. Sometimes they don’t, and it still takes about 5 showers for you to feel normal again. Most races provide showers, but the water is usually freezing, and often just over more grass, so you’re just hosing yourself off in another mud puddle. Basically, the world’s least effective showering system. You can rinse off a hundred times over and still not feel great. Then you’re wet, and freezing too.

So, you get back to your car in the muddy lot. Since you may still be wet, you’re completely covered in grass again…sigh…

Once you’re there, you look at your seat cover. You remember what it used to look like when the car was still new while you put down your handy-dandy car seat towel, and hope for the best. When you get home, you remove said towel in sheer agony because you can see a big spot where your butt has been sitting, and your car is still wet. Not to mention, you may need to consider throwing away the towel.

My friends, these days are over.

Summary/ Purpose

I’d like to introduce to you Dry-Rub, a car seat cover for athletes.

I had the pleasure of talking with one of their employees throughout the duration of my purchase, and might I begin by saying that this person (whose name I don’t know) was very pleasant and easy to work with. I received quick responses that were polite and reasonable.

Might I start off my product review by saying, this product totally makes sense. Towels aren’t thick enough to do the job. They fall over, even if you tie them. Then, they get stinky and gross. So, the fact that someone has created a product specifically to deal with our muddy butts, well, to you, I say thank you.

Product Features

Dry Rub is sold in a few different colors: red, blue, grey, and pink. I got the “mild” version, which covers the seat, the back of the seat, and the head rest. It does not cover around the foot area, but some of the upgraded versions do. I was really surprised with how quickly the product shipped to my house. It was on my door step two days after I had discussed the order with them. It shipped neatly in a box, labeled dry rub.

The box itself comes with a little handle, and it’s very light weight and easy to transport. Inside the box cover is another box that opens easily. Inside of that is a list of directions to help show you how to put the product on your carseat, and a drawstring bag with the dry rub inside of it.

The head rest of the seat cover in cinched, so it stays on comfortably and doesn’t wiggle. The back of my seat was completely covered, and the bottom is patted for extra support.

 .

Product Usage

I recently did the Green Beret Challenge XII, and decided to test this product after this event. What would be the point of testing a product that claims it can keep your car clean while you are also clean? So, after the event, I went straight to my car. No shower, nothing. We had been swimming in a pond a lot before I got in the car, too. I had about a 45 minute drive to my next location.

I was really excited when I removed this and found no butt stain on my car! The picture below was taken immediately after I took this seat off. Granted, the seat was stained before from said “OCR butt.”

I have used this product when I train also. I do a lot of trail running and you just never know what you are going to find on your way home. You especially don’t want to find things while you’re driving. It’s something that I can use on a day-to-day training basis when I don’t have time to shower in between doing the fitness and doing real life.

Another thing? No smell. When I got up, there were a few things of grass that stuck to the cover, but I was able to just brush them off. No problem. It was awesome.

Pros/Cons

Pros: It’s light weight, easy to transport, doesn’t smell, and can save my car from whatever swim, mud, or sweat stains I bring to it. It also comes in a variety of side colors so you can still be unique. The extra padding on the bottom is extra efficient for making sure that your butt covers the seat. Ships fast, and customer service is pretty great.

Cons: It’s not as attractive as you would hope it would be, and if you buy the “mild” model, below the seat isn’t covered.

Conclusion

Thoughts? I like this product.  The biggest thing was the model that I had did not also have the portion that covered up the lower part of the seat. But, Dry Rub has already made improvements on this model available. If you’re looking to purchase, I would go ahead and get the Medium or more upgraded versions. But, a definite recommend for people who are looking to get out of the towel method.

Top 5 Shoes For Obstacle Racing – 2018

We often get questions like:

What are the best shoes for a Spartan Race?  What shoes are best for a Tough Mudder? What shoes are best for Rugged Maniac, Warrior Dash (or insert almost any race name here)?

You want to take a peek at the new New Spartan Shoes, click here. (review pending)

icon

At some point this is a question 99% of Obstacle Racers have asked. What we have done at ORM is round up the best shoes we have used, and other OCR Pro’s have used, to give you a simple list of the top 5 Obstacle Racing Shoes from our experience. Here they are, not in order of one to five but, just the top 5.

 

Hoka One One Evo Jawz – Hoka’s first foray into creating a mud shoe is an instant success. The Jawz has a flyweight nylon upper, a surprisingly cushioned midsole, and a heavily lugged Vibram Megagrip outsole. To keep the weight down and keep the shoe flexible, Hoka made cutouts in the outsole which, unfortunately, drastically cuts down the durability of the shoe.The forefoot is a little bit wider than a standard trail shoe but once you get used to it you’ll love them. You’ll also get kudos from Steve Hammond, which makes it worth every penny.
The Evo line is Hoka’s Research and Development team in France working in conjunction with their athletes to quietly pump out some of the highest performing shoes out there.
See our in-depth review here.
(Drop:  3mm  Lugs: 6mm  Weight:  7.2 0z)

Salming OT Comp-They are fresh to the OCR world and have come on strong. Savage Race has made them the official shoe for their race series. They made this shoe just for mud runs and wicked terrain.  The Michelin soles and their extreme lugs hold their own to any shoe out there to the metal while maintaining traction through the mud.
See our in-depth review here.
(Drop:  4mm  Lugs: 7mm  Weight:  9.0 0z)

Merrell All Out Crush 2–  Merrell really hasn’t pushed it very hard and created a better looking version with BOA. This shoe has decent lugs and it runs pretty well. Honestly it doesn’t do any one thing exceptionally but does everything reasonably well. If I was to get one shoe for training and racing everything between a sprint and a 24 hour race this would be it.
*The BOA version unfortunately has experienced issues with the BOA clogging up and loosening or no longer working altogether.
(Drop:  6mm  Lugs: 6mm  Weight: 8.5 0z)

Inov-8 X-Talon 200 –  This shoe was developed for obstacle course racing after inov-8 botched the update to the classic 190. This super heavily lugged shoe excels in shorter races with lots of mud and grass. It probably isn’t enough shoe for most people in races over an hour.
(Drop:  3mm  Lugs: 8mm  Weight:  7.1 0z)

Altra King MT– If you need a really (really) wide forefoot this is the shoe for you. With a velcro strap across the top of the foot this shoe looks a little funky but goes downhill better than the rest of Altra’s lineup. This shoe has a full length Vibram Megagrip outsole which makes it feel pretty firm and a little rigid.
See our in-depth review here.
(Drop:  0mm  Lugs: 6mm  Weight:  9.7 0z)

Honorable Mention

Inov-8 X-Claw 275 – The 275 is the longer distance version of the 200. More cushion, a little more durable, and a little wider toe box. This shoe would be better for someone looking for more of a traditional trail shoe with some OCR grip.
(Drop:  8mm  Lugs: 8mm  Weight:  9.7 0z)

Salomon S-Lab XA Amphib– Salomon designed this shoe for swim-run races in Scandinavia and accidentally created a phenomenal OCR shoe. A non-removable insole coupled with open mesh drainage ports this shoe drains better than any other shoe on the market. The midsole is on the firmer side and geared for slightly longer races. The outsole is Salomon’s Premium Wet Traction Contra-grip which is not quite as grippy on wet obstacles as Vibram Megagrip. The fit is a little bit on the snugger side in the forefoot and the shoe sports Kevlar Quick-lace to guarantee your laces won’t come untied. This shoe would hold up great for racing and training.
(Drop:  4mm  Lugs: 6mm  Weight:  7.8 0z)

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Review

I was sent the Rehband 5mm knee sleeves to try about a month ago. They came in at the perfect time because I had just started to have some knee “stuff” happening. I wouldn’t call it pain, but hill runs, leg day, speed work, etc. had all become a little too much for my knees, particularly my right one. It just so happened that the Peachtree Road Race was just a few weeks away so my running volume was steady but I played it safe on runs so as to not exacerbate the problem. When I first slipped the Rehbands on, they fit like a glove and provided almost instant relief. These particular sleeves also were branded with the Spartan logo, which gave me even more motivation for my first Spartan Sprint in October here in Atlanta.

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Features

Fit- The knee sleeves contour the leg and fit the knee better than any other sleeve or brace I have used. Once I slide them on, I don’t have to adjust them. The material isn’t as breathable as I would have liked particularly when paired with the Georgia heat, but in order to get the amount of support that these bad boys offer, it is an understandable compromise.

Compression – Just the right amount of compression to provide support without feeling like you have tourniquets on each leg. I was able to run, jump, squat, hip thrust, lunge, and carry heavy buckets without feeling any strain on my knees at all. While the compression is tight, I still had optimal range of motion and never noticed wearing them.

Versatility – Most of us don’t training for races by running alone. To train for an OCR, you are running, lifting, carrying, etc. These sleeves transitioned incredibly well from runs to gym and vice versa.

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Usage

I used the sleeves during runs, Crossfit style WODS, traditional bodybuilding splits, and OCR workouts. Each time I used the sleeves I was impressed at how well they transitioned from one style of workout to the next. Unlike most sports specific gear, such as a lifting belt or wrist straps, I didn’t have to constant take them off and put them back on, and despite the compression I hardly noticed they were on. The only time they were slightly annoying was in the midday Georgia heat. They got a little sweaty but didn’t retain any moisture, they just made me a tad more hot.

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Durability

The durability of these sleeves aregreat. I had them on throughout workouts where I was on the floor, on ropes, etc. and they still look brand new. They also haven’t stretched at all and I haven’t washed them yet (and no they don’t smell).

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Amazing compression
  • Fit anatomically around the knee for optimum comfort
  • Transitioned well between sports
  • Felt the benefit the first time I wore them

Cons

  • In 90+ temps, they were a little hot

Rehband 5mm Knee Sleeves Conclusion

All in all, I loved how the Rehband Knee sleeves instantly relieved the pressure when running. I had a hard time recovering in between lifts and runs and wearing these made a huge difference in recovery. I was worried that running without them would be difficult since I had gotten so use to using them, but I ran and lifted without them for a week and while I had to work harder to stabilize, wearing the sleeves doesn’t leave you dependent on them. I ran without any nagging knee tension. The technology in the sleeves has me excited to try other Rehband products, particularly their compression pants when they come out. If the sleeves have this much support and contour, I imagine their pants will be well received. These sleeves are a staple in my workouts now for both OCR training and strength training.

I first saw these blue beauties on an Instagram picture Ryan Kent. I thought I must get my hands on them. They are gorgeous, have giant lugs, and are made by a name that I trust in, Hoka.  

I have been hearing about ultra runners swear by Hokas for years and had a great experience with the last pair I reviewed in the Hoka Challenger ATR.  I was ready to try my next pair, this time with some that are made for grip, the Hoka Evo Jawz

HOKA ONE ONE Evo Jawz Features

Vibram outsole with multidirectional lugs.  – 6mm, multi directional mega grip outsole. These things are clearly made for some serious trail running and mudding.

Thin upper – This is a “stripped down” Hoka, rather than feeling like the massive bubble of protection like most of the “moon boot” line, these are super light at 7.2 oz (204 grams). It also drains water very fast while being breathable as well.

HOKA ONE ONE Evo Jawz Usage

I first tested them at the Red Bull 400 in Upper Michigan. As soon as my feet hit the long grass at the base of this event, I felt these shoes dig in. I ran around to get my legs warm and a smile was immediately brought to my face. Brand new shoes can feel like driving a brand new car (or even a rental car on the newer side) that you really enjoy. You can’t put your finger on it, but it just feels great. On this day, feeling my feet tear up the grass felt amazing.

While a 400 meter race straight up some grass and ski slope aren’t the ideal test, the trails and an OCR certainly are. Upon returning to my home town, I went out on the Sweetwater Trails, which are some of my favorite local technical running trails, and the shoes performed super well. Next up was the Jailbreak OCR. It has water crossings, various types of muds including some slippery hills, and all of the other accoutrements one needs to test out shoes at an obstacle race. The Evo Jawz performed well in every aspect.

HOKA ONE ONE Evo Jawz Durability

These shoes are brand new to the market, having been rolled out for the Spring 2018 line. So far, I have had no issues, nor have I read of any from other early reviews, or other OCR friends who have been running in them. There is a strange issue that I have encountered and that is bleeding of the blue color after any time in them. One downside is that the blue from the upper material did discolor the socks I was wearing and even all the way through to my feet.

Pros

  • Light weight
  • Killer lugs
  • Drain well

Cons

  • Smurf Feet
  • Very Little cushioning if you looking for that “Hoka feel”
  • non speed laces (which I prefer whenever possible)

HOKA ONE ONE Evo Jawz Conclusion

I love these shoes, easily my 2018 favorite. I give them a slight nod over the 2018 Merrell All Out Crush 2.0 and they definitely overtake the Reebok All Terrain, my previous favorite. I am a huge fan of aggressive lugs when done right, and they certainly did these right. I found these shoes to run true to size, unlike brands like Salomon and Icebug where I have to buy a size up, these worked great for me at an 11, which is my preferred trail shoe size.

People often cut out the toe boxes for Hoka as they run too narrow for them. I get that “hot spot” on the outer part of the right food regardless of shoe brand for any runs in the 20 plus mile range. I will update this article if these shoes become “must cut” above and beyond my normal hot spot.

The Hoka Evo Jawz is certainly a must buy for the 2018 obstacle racer.
