I absolutely LOVE the movie Nightmare Before Christmas so I picked out the Jack Skellington sweater.  It may be under the heading “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” but I don’t think its ugly at all !  I asked my daughter Kaley to do a picture and then somehow she ended up claiming the sweater for herself… why does that always happen to me ? LOL

UCS-festivusFor the Seinfeld fans, they have this awesome “Festivus for the Rest of Us” sweater.

Another one I really liked was the “Fragile” leg lamp from The Christmas Story.  It is sure to get you lots of compliments !

The Bluefin Fitness 4D Vibration Plate will give you a full body workout in just 10 minutes.  The triple motors provide four dimensional vibration, oscillation & micro oscillation for the ultimate workout.

Along with the vibration plate, it comes with a wearable remote control, 2 resistance cords that attach to the unit, 4 resistance bands in different tensions, an exercise poster, a workout + nutrition guide and the instruction manual.

I really liked the wearable remote control.  It made it easy to start and stop it and switch settings while you are working out.

I do yoga several times a week so I decided to do some of the moves on the Bluefin Fitness 4D Vibration Plate to make my core and legs work harder.  Chair and Tree are great poses to do on it.  Some of the other workout moves that I like doing on the unit are bicep curls, tricep dips and shoulder presses using the bands and then calf raises, squats and lunges off the back.

If you are strong enough, you can do push ups off it or just hold plank like my daughter likes to do.  This adds a whole new level to what muscles are working to hold you up.

One thing I absolutely love (and kind of found by accident) is that you can connect your phone’s bluetooth to the unit and play music through the vibration plate’s speaker. You can then create a fun workout mix and play it while working out.

Make sure you check them out on their social media:

Kettlebell Kings Battle Rope Review

Disclosure: I was given the product featured in this post to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.

Battle Rope Review

Battle_Rope_Review

Recently I was sent one of the 1.5 inch / 50 ft Battle Ropes from Kettlebell Kings and given access to their Living.Fit website. After watching the Battle Rope continuing education videos which I talked about in my post here, I checked out the Battle Rope + Kettlebell Weekly Workouts. These workouts are divided into 5 types: High Intensity Interval Training which breaks each move into 20 second intervals and really gets your heart rate up, an ab workout using both the battle rope and kettlebell, “Strong Thighs Saves Lives” which also uses the battle rope and kettlebell to work your leg muscles, rotational strength which works your core and EMOM (every minute on the minute).

I then headed to the Battle Rope Challenge Workouts section to watch more ways to use my Battle Rope. I was shocked at how many different ways the trainers had come up with to use them. In total, there are 13 videos that show you techniques of various moves.   I really enjoyed this section a lot.

Finally it was time to go anchor the battle rope.  The site gave several options but we decided to use our fence post and a large screw eye.

Then we used a carabiner with a canvas strap (as suggested in their instructional video).  Using a strap around the rope instead of clamping the rope directly keeps it from fraying over time.  NOTE: the strap is a little longer than I would have ideally liked but I already owned it so we decided to use it and it works just fine.

I realized just how out of shape I am right now when I tried doing even the easiest of moves with the battle rope.  My boy friend did much better and got a great workout.  I am jealous that he got to do such fun things with it.

I am definitely excited to use the battle rope in my workout rotation to help build my cardio and muscle strength.  I may not be strong now, but in time I will be.  I promise to update this post once I get strong enough to do some of the moves on video !

The Kuma 8″ Stainless Steel Chef Knife is the perfect multi purpose cooking knife for slicing and chopping vegetables, carving meat, or even cutting through thin bone.  The ergonomic non-slip handle gives maximum control even with fine cutting and the 3Cr13 steel that they use allows them to create high quality knives that are affordable to all households.

The first thing Rich decided to cut with the knife was a pineapple we had sitting on the counter.  He absolutely loved how well it cut and how sturdy it was.  But you don’t have to take our word for it, 659 people have reviewed this knife and it has an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5.  The few 1 star ratings claim it wasn’t very sharp but we personally found it to be very sharp.
