I never win contests. Or raffles. Or giveaways. Especially if it's an item that I really want. So I was quite surprised when I received an email from 110% that I won an OVERDRIVE Compression Socks + Ice Kit. At first I thought it was spam. Then I thought it was a ploy to get me to sign up for something. Then I remembered I had entered their summer giveaway and I ACTUALLY WON!
I was even more excited when I received the kit and realized how freaking cool it is.
Basically, it's a pair of gradient compression socks with a sleeve that goes over top. You then place the included ice packs (that you can custom fit to the area) in between the compression sock and the sleeve. So you're getting the benefits of a compression sock and ice all at the same time. No more plastic wrap or being confined to the floor with ice packs and dishtowels (which is basically how I've been spending every night for the last month). You can actually walk around your house, cook dinner, or even venture outside if you're brave while helping your body recover. Genius.
My husband struggles with Achilles tightness and soreness so I saw his pain as a perfect opportunity to model this great product for my blog.
I am so in love with this concept that I'm five minutes away from ordering the Blitz Knee Compression + Ice.
Trust me, if you're using ice more then once a week and have problem areas that need some extra TLC - you NEED this product. I'm not even getting paid to say that people - it's just the truth. So head over to the website and hook yourself up. You will not regret it.
