8 Simple Ways to Drink More Water


With all this talk about Shin Splints and muscle soreness, you may want to know about this product.

The Cryocup ($5.39) is an ice-massage tool. Simply fill it with water and freeze before you run, dance or whatever it is you do that causes you to be sore. When you're done, rub the ice on the problem area. This cold resistant handle makes it a lot easier to hold than a large block of ice. Buy it here.

Fit's Tip: If you can't get around to buy a Cryocup, you can always make your own version by using a plastic drinking cup (fill it with water and freeze). The only issue with this option is that your hands will get super cold and you may not be able to massage the sore area for as long.

Sorry Purplesugar - I'm a bit slow today. Fit would like to publicly thank Purplesugar for inspiring us with her at home icing tip about shin splits. We love learning from sugar users. Keep on icing!!!

hey fit, I left a comment about this on your shin splints post - where's the love? By the way, that picture is kind of misleading... warm body + cold ice = water So, do it outside or over a towel!

I usually throw a cup in the freezer and to stop my hands from getting cold, I throw a koosie (those things that keep soda/beer cold, hands warm) over the top of the cup.
