Another StrengthCrate, another month with awesome stuff. If you read the blog, you know what I think about this box, so let's get into the stuff. The first item is these bar grips from Harbinger ($24.99). I've recently started a new training program that includes heavier weights (this might be a theme of this month's post), and I'm noticing my grip getting fatigued sometimes before I'm done. I plan to incorporate these into my workouts to help.
I think I was supposed to get the men's version of this shirt, but Whitney got the tank top version ($25). She really likes it and says its lightweight and comfortable. Win win for me because I'm still rocking the StrengthCrate shirt from my first box.
As I've ramped up weights, I've been relying on whey protein from past StrengthCrate boxes and needed to order some glutamine. To fill the gap before the glutamine arrived, I used these BCAAs with glutamine from Eat the Bear ($45), which seemed to help quite a bit. Also, I now keep a shaker in the kitchen, in the pantry, and at my desk, so the extra one definitely comes in handy.
The box also included Black Widow liquid chalk ($14.95) and Icon Meals protein cookies (2 pack for $15). I'm still using an older liquid chalk, so I'll admit I haven't tried this one yet. The protein cookies have about 280 calories per cookie, but they do taste pretty spot on.
This month, out of 10, I give StrengthCrate a 10 on quality, 10 on cost (The G.O.A.T. crate costs $75 plus shipping; I found the products online for about $132), 9 on appropriate for us, and 10 on fun. This month was all stuff that I have already begun to use or plan to use on a regular basis.
