Fire and Ice- Hyperice GIVEAWAY

 

I planned on getting on the treadmill early for some speed work this morning. I always dread speed work. I’m fairly certain I’m not the only one though. Well, the speed work or the double digit run I had planned didn’t happen.

I’ve had a little pain in my right achillies the past couple of days so decided speed work was not that great of an idea. It doesn’t hurt when I run at an easy pace so that’s what I did instead. And, if I’m being totally honest, I just wasn’t feeling it this morning.

2014-02-10 09.15.15

I’m going to stick with the Wave Inspire 10s this week too instead of trying to run more in my other lighter shoes as they give a little more support which helps the situation a bit.

2014-02-10 09.16.32

The bright yellow is just fun anyway. Obviously I slept in my Handful last night too for a little extra motivation.

2014-02-10 09.11.50

By the way, tan is my favorite to wear under “normal” outfits (like tanks and jeans and such). It’s just so multi-functional.

 

Some fun things from the weekend:

Saturday night my bro went all out and made me a belated birthday dinner fiesta style with authentic  carnitas and everything since he missed our festivities last week. He even made special spicy habanero sauce just for me.

2014-02-08 18.27.14

How nice. I made sure to put it to good use.

2014-02-08 18.43.36

 

I brought some muffins home for the boys from the race Saturday. They’re always excited to see what kind of special goodies I bring home for them from races. They thought they’d show me the proper way to eat a special race muffin. Without hands of course.

2014-02-09 10.53.22

It’s a skill.

Last night we ended the weekend with a family trip to the park. It was awesome.

2014-02-09 16.59.062014-02-09 17.33.012014-02-09 17.37.23

Yeah, the boys even made me a special salad that I got to carry all the way back to the truck.

2014-02-09 17.34.01

The best end to the weekend.

Oh and the best snack I had all weekend was this one.

2014-02-09 11.14.20

It was done more than once and I think you might need a closer look.

2014-02-09 11.13.58

A baked purple sweet potato with coconut butter, Penzey’s cinnamon, unsweetened dark chocolate sauce and peanut free NuttZo.

Perfection.

 

Oh and while the boys and STUFT Daddy have read their new book quite a few times, we have not taken the whole family paleo plunge (obviously since I brought home those special muffins).

I even made a pretty spectacular healthy version of a manly homemade pizza last.

Next time I’ll sneak a grain free crust in there. Ha ha.

Okay, so let’s talk ice.

Specifically Hyperice.

Hyperice is a portable ice compression device to use for running and sports recovery. They offer a knee, shoulder, back and multi-purpose device that each simultaneously deliver compression and cold therapy to help athletes not only recover quicker, but enhance muscle and joint performance and also aid in injury prevention.

I was recently sent the knee device to try out and review.

IMG_2421

I don’t generally ice my knees after I run as luckily I don’t currently have issues with them. But, I did try this out a few times and really like quite a few things about it.

Icing can be messy. We’ve all done the frozen peas or whatever we can find. I even have a pair of compression pants that have special pockets for putting ice pads in. I love them, but they can be a bit tedious and messy sometimes.

Hyperice makes icing super easy and convenient by combining the compression wrap with a reusable ice cell that even has a special Air Release Valve.

IMG_2423

The Ice Cell uses air release technology to ensure that you can still get maximum compression and comfort while icing.

IMG_2425

The wrap is very easy to use and snug, yet comfortable and still allows mobility.

IMG_2426IMG_2427

I was actually smart enough this time to read the directions first. They weren’t too complicated. Fill the Ice Cell 2/3 the way with crushed ice. Remove as much air as possible before putting the cap on, then put the cap on and insert it into the wrap.

IMG_2429

Once the wrap is in place, you can remove more air with the Air Release Valve and tighten the wrap as needed.

IMG_2428

It was very easy to put together.

IMG_2662

Somehow I thought I might look like Hope Solo when I was sporting mine though.

image004

I was wrong.

Smile

IMG_2665

Ha ha.

I was thoroughly impressed though with the comfort and mobility of the compression wrap and how it kept the ice in place.

I’ve worn it around the house for quite awhile a couple times

IMG_2664

and even outside today for some play time with the boys in between classes (notice the snazzy spin pants).

IMG_2667

Not only is the ice evenly distributed, but it really stays cold for awhile. Today actually I took it off and left it on the fireplace while we went to the gym to teach my class and when we got home it was still sitting there without any leaks or anything and full of ice. Impressive, right? I put it right back on.

Smile

On their website they explain the technology behind their products a bit more and have some easy instructional videos like this one.

They also have the other products they make for various muscles and joints.

image

 

I really like the product I was sent. I even think that I can use my knee wrap on other body parts as needed since it wraps so easily with the velcro and everything. I’ll have to experiment a bit with that.

 

But, for now I have a GIVEAWAY for you.

Woot!

One winner will get to choose a Hyperice product from the ones pictures above.

 

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here answering one or all of the following:

What product would you choose?

What body part, if any, do you usually ice the most?

What do you usually use to ice? (Frozen peas, ice packs, etc.)

 

*Giveaway will be open until Thursday night, February 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM PST. Winner will be announced Friday on the blog. Open to US residents only.

Coolio.

It’s a little past my bedtime and I haven’t done my nightly reading yet, so I’m off.

See you tomorrow.

    I would choose the knee. Lately I’ve been having pain in my right knee, don’t know if its from my mileage or pace or both. I self diagnosed it as runners knee and have been taking anti-inflammatory meds and icing it using mostly ice packs. Rest seems to help with the pain but well…it sucks! Sometimes its easier to deal with the physical pain than the emotions. Anyway, great giveaway that I would love to win!

  2. 2
    Lindsay K says:

    I would choose the one for the knee, since that is what I generally have to ice. Right now I just use a reuseable ice pack with an ace bandage to hold it in place.

  3. 3
    suzie says:

    I would choose the back one. Both my husband and I have tight lower backs so this would be awesome to have!

  4. 4

    I always use a big floppy gel ice pack. But bags of old frozen veggies are great too when I can’t find the ice pack!

  5. 5
    Betsy says:

    I use any type of frozen veggies to ice and typically ice my lower back.

  6. 6
    Tess says:

    One of my sons plays college football the other college LAX and the other high school football and LAX!! We always need ice packs and it’s usually for the knee!!! But sometimes I need a back ice pack so I’m torn….probably would go with the knee ;)

    I’d choose the knee! Usually I use an ice pack.

  8. 8
    Jen A. says:

    I don’t normally ice but I really should now that my training season is on the horizon. My knees are what give me the most pain after a long run so definitely the knee one!

  9. 9
    Kristen E says:

    I don’t ice anything regularly, just anything that starts giving me trouble…I think the utility one would be great for that! Thanks for hosting! :)

  10. 10
    Krisren says:

    I would use it on my knees. I try to take ice baths once and a while but it’s been so cold out I haven’t been able to bear it!

  11. 11
    Christy D. says:

    I would probably pick the back or knee, I actually usually ice my hip flexors most, but as I get older, the knees are getting some love too! As a PT, these look awesome, would be a good product to recommend to patients!

  12. 12
    Tammy P. says:

    Both my daughter and I would use it for our knees. She is a dancer and I am dealing with patella tendonitis. For now, we use ice packs or frozen veggies. I am so happy to see these!

  13. 13
    Toni @runninglovingliving says:

    I would love the one for the knee! Looks like an awesome product!!

  14. 14
    Joell says:

    I would chose either the back or utility one

  15. 15

    My knees give me problems sometimes so I’d choose the knee brace! The peas aren’t working so well ;)

  16. 16
    Karen Atwood says:

    I would like to try the utility one on my heel. Suffer from chronic inflammation as the result of a heel spur.

  17. 17
    Holly says:

    I would definitely choose the shoulder Hyperice wrap! I separated my shoulder years ago and sometimes overhead lifts (like OH squats and jerks) can aggravate my shoulder…and talk about an awkward area to keep ice on :(

  18. 18
    Lisa says:

    Knee of course.

  19. 19
    Kristie says:

    Unfortunately, I was rear-ended by a car going pretty fast a couple years ago, and my back still isn’t the same. I find myself icing my lower back quite frequently, and with ice packs, I feel like I am stuck on the couch until I am finished, so it would be awesome to have the back Hyperice wrap so I could still maneuver around while I ice it!

  20. 20
    Kathryn says:

    I would love the knee ice pack! I usually use plastic baggies of ice, but this is so much more efficient and doesn’t leak!

  21. 21
    Whitney W says:

    I ice my knees constantly!

  22. 22
    Jacqueline says:

    I would use the knee one!! I’m constantly having to ice my knee/hip with a frozen bag of blueberries. Not only is this annoying but I have to sit in one place and ice it. I usually don’t have that time after I run because I go straight to work or just don’t have the time! This product would be extremely useful for me :)

  23. 23
    Vicki T. says:

    I could definitely use this for the knee!

  24. 24
    Carol H. says:

    I usually ice my knees and ankles the most, so I think I would chose the knee wrap. Neat idea!

  25. 25
    Haley E says:

    The utility one would be my choice! Elbow problems….. Peas are the go to ice pack for now though!

  26. 26
    Gretchen says:

    I would definitely choose the one for the knee. Currently, a bag of frozen kale in my freezer is being used as my icing tool.

  27. 27
    Jen says:

    What product would you choose?

    I would choose the utility one

    What body part, if any, do you usually ice the most?

    Definitely my ankle

    What do you usually use to ice? (Frozen peas, ice packs, etc.)

    I have an awesome wrap around icepack I use

  28. 28
    Nikki says:

    I would choose the utility to use on my feet and lower legs since I ice them the most. I use ice in a bag or an ice bath (sort of) by filling a big bucket with ice water and sticking my feet in there.

  29. 29
    marti says:

    I would use the utility model. I had comartmentsyndro,e in the past so if I don’t wear my compression socks my right calf and ankle swells…. I have a reuseable icepack butthis would be awesome to use!! I have considered just sticking it in a snowbank up here in mn :)

  30. 30
    Anne says:

    I am always icing my calves/achillies/heels with frozen corn bags. Maybe the utility one would work for that?

  31. 31
    marti says:

    *compartment syndrome

  32. 32
    Jill A says:

    I would use the knee wrap. My knee generally bothers me after a long run, although I do occasionally have hop pain. Too bad they done make one for that! I currently use an ice pack and ace bandage.

  33. 33
    Erin says:

    I would LOVE a knee wrap!! I struggle with knee pain after long runs or squats, and icing has been very effective for me. I usually use ice packs and wrap then on with one of my daughters scarves, or a long sock. It’s fine if you lie there immobile! This looks like a definite step up!

  34. 34
    Lesli says:

    I would pick the knee wrap.

  35. 35
    Leah says:

    I am the queen of icing body parts with frozen vegetables! Right now my go to is a bag of frozen lima beans. It is such as cheap option!

  36. 36
    kate says:

    My ankle because I broke it pretty badly a few years ago.

  37. 37
    jill says:

    i ice my hamstrings!

  38. 38

    That is a really tough choice but I probably would go for either the knee or back!

  39. 39
    Kelli says:

    I would choose the knee! I am blessed with having osgood schlatter in both knees! :) I ice my knees and calves after I run with a gel ice pack usually.

  40. 40
    Rene says:

    I’m torn between the knee or the shoulder. I would most likely go with the shoulder because its hard to keep the ice in place when resting. Typically I ice with the typical lunchbox style icepacks.

  41. 41
    Cassi Spigle says:

    Hook me up with the one for the knee! I have big knee problems and pretty much ice after every workout. Being stuck on the couch with the old bag of spinach (that’s what I use) is a bummer. Being mobile would be awesome!

  42. 42
    Morgan L says:

    I would pick the utility for the knee. Sometimes my IT band needs some icing and that looks like the best way to do it!

  43. 43
    Sally says:

    I haven’t really needed to ice anything yet, but would probably go for the knee one since I’m going to start upping my mileage and doing more speedwork soon. Thanks for the giveaway!

  44. 44
    Autumn Isleib says:

    I would choose the utility one or the back one. I haven’t had to ice in quite awhile (just lots of stretching and foam roller fun!). If I need to ice, there are plenty of frozen bags of veggies in my freezer along with an ice pac . I really like a method we did back in college: fill a small paper cup with water and freeze it. When ready, take out of freezer, peel some of paper cup off, and rub in circular motions on sore muscles/injuries. You could also stick a tongue depresser in it to have something to hold on to while rubbing it on whatever you needed to ice. I had several of these little cups in my freezer during college!

  45. 45
    jenn p says:

    I ice my ankle all the time. I am recovering from a horrible ankle injury and I reuse a bag of peas everyday…. hahah if it ain’t broke don’t fix it, right?

  46. 46

    Oh very cool. Too bad they don’t make one for the glutes! I would have to go for the back b/c I think that’s where some of my pain is stemming from.

  47. 47
    Carson says:

    I would choose the knee. It’s the only body part I really ice (except for my hips on occasion) and when I do I usually use the gel ice packs they sell to put in lunch boxes.

  48. 48
    Ali says:

    I just haven’t found a great way to ice, or a great product to ice with. I’ve tried the frozen veggies, homemade ice gel packs, regular ice packs, etc. This product seems really convenient and useful! I would love to try out the utility model.

    Thank you :-)

  49. 49
    Shannon says:

    Definitely the knee ! I usually use an ice pack and tie a towel around it to keep it in place. This product looks awesome!

  50. 50
    Stephanie says:

    I would probably get the knee one! That is usually the spot I ice if I am having problems! Usually I use ice packs, but I have definitely used frozen vegetable packets as well!!

  51. 51
    amanda says:

    The knee would be great. I usually just line my both of my legs with frozen veggies

  52. 52
    Molly says:

    I’d choose knee. I’m just stuck with an ice pack when I I’ve them now.

  53. 53
    Carolyn says:

    I’d probably get the back one!

  54. 54
    Becca N says:

    OMG I definitely need the knee one! I’m doing quite a bit of icing for my knee and calf right now with ice packs… This usually involves compression socks, ice packs, and lots of duck tape to hold the ice packs in place so I can still move around and get some stuff done.

  55. 55
    Amanda Yetter says:

    I would pick the knee one – I definitely have to ice my knees more than other body parts. I usually use frozen peas or ice packs – depending upon what my hand grabs first in the freezer! My favorite is to sit in front of the fireplace after a super cold run, icing my knee with a huge cup of coffee in my hand!

  56. 56
    Breanna says:

    I really would love the knee ice pack. I’ve had issues with my knees on and off over the past several years and so I’ve had to do the whole icing routine quite a bit in order to keep running. I would love to try this out as I usually just use a ziplock with ice cubes in it and a rubber band – ha ha.

  57. 57
    Emmeline says:

    I’d pick the utility wrap! I ice my calves the most, they love to tense up, especially after a race. It’s deceptively difficult to ice your calves unless you feel like lounging on your belly!

  58. 58
    Paige Callahan says:

    I would pick the knee ones, I usually use the ice packs I got for my wisdom teeth to ice

  59. 59
    Clare says:

    I would use the Knee or Utility. I use a clay ice pack so there is no mess and you can use it as a heating pad as well. Only problem is that it doesn’t stay cold for too long.

  60. 60
    Pearl says:

    Knees! I have two gel packs for my knees to maximize efficiency. The packs come with a Velcro strap, but they aren’t secure enough to allow me to walk around when I’m icing.

  61. 61
    Erica says:

    I could definitely use one of those to ice my knees! my ziploc bags are always springing leaks

  62. 62
    Kaitlin G says:

    As I am currently icing my knees and water is leaking all over my couch, I would LOVE to try the knee product! What perfect timing to learn about this…

  63. 63

    I would love love love the knee ice pack. After long runs I normally ice my legs in a ice bath. I really does help recovery a ton but it is not fun freezing your buns off off those 20 min!! Another thing I do if I’m starting to feel sore in the shin area is ice massage. I just freeze water in Dixie cups and rip the to part of the cup off so the ice is exposed then rub it along my shins. That works wonders for shin splints too!

  64. 64
    Allie says:

    I would choose the knew, utility or back. I’m either icing my knees or back or hip. I have a nice pack or peas :)

  65. 65
    Alexandra Edge says:

    Hi STUFTMAMA!

    First off your IG is brilliant, and like you I love to run. I just graduate college and will be heading off to law school in August and have given my self the challenge to be in the best shape of my life by then. Running has always been a family event and currently my mum and I are training for our first half marathon this summer. However, my knee is always holding me back and the “knee hyperice” would be such a help. I currently (much to my mothers disdain) use any frozen bag of veggies I can find (peas, broccoli, cauliflower, etc) or will make a rice sock for heat. My sister also has had knee issues since she was quite young and has already had one of two necessary knee surgeries so the Hyperice would get much use from both of us.

    God Bless and happy running :)

  66. 66
    Allison Turley says:

    This looks like a great product! I would choose the knee ice pack because I’ve had issues with my knees on and off for years. I usually use whatever ice I can get my hands on… Frozen veggies, water frozen in a paper cup, ice packs, etc. the part I hate most about icing through is the puddle of water I leave behind most times

  67. 67
    Abe says:

    I don’t ice a lot. Normally when I do its towards the peak of summer marathon training. Usually my calfs are on fire. I have a bad calf that no matter what I do it always flares up after hard long runs. I’ve used a combination of ice methods such as frozen veggie bags, Ice blocks that look like a ball (use this to simulate deep tissue massages) and products like mojie. They all have their benefits and RICE techniques have helped me recover quickly.

    This product looks very interesting. I would probably select the knee wrap..I figured I could somehow use it on my calf. :) I’m all for any product that can help and athlete recover and get back into action. Thanks for the review/give away. :)

    Abe

  68. 68
    Anel says:

    I had knee issues a few years back and sometimes if I’m not being mindful it will come back. With that being said I would choose the knee pack. Usually I just put ice in a bag ; it gets messy and wet!

  69. 69
    Kelly Jo says:

    I would choose the knee pack, I always ice after my long runs for about 7-10 minutes and this would great, becuase if needed I could get up and move around. Now I use either a re-usable ice pack or a bag of frozen veggies from the freezer!! I would love this!!!

  70. 70
    Lisa Jones says:

    I would get the knee one for my IT band issue. I usually use a frozen gel pack.

  71. 71
    Steffany R. says:

    I have an awful IT Band. That knee one would be perfect for me! I usually wrap a bag of ice up in an ace bandage and around the knee. This would be an awesome alternative!

  72. 72
    Alyssa Morris says:

    Hey! This product looks really great. Would love to have the knee one for myself because I suffer from chronic patellar tendionitis due to having a torn PCL in my right knee that I suffered playing soccer. Unfortunately, this injury is something that they don’t normally operate on like the ACL because there usually isn’t much improvement seen with surgery. I struggle with running consistently and any lifts that puts strain on my knee due to the pain. I think that this product would definitely help because of the combination of the compression and ice as opposed to the normal ice packs that I usually use.

  73. 73
    Karli says:

    Extended shoulder!

  74. 74
    Laura says:

    What a cool product! I would choose the multi-use one so I could use it on my Achilles and shins (the areas I ice the most).

  75. 75

    I would use the knee or utility pack! I’m pretty bad about icing because I don’t have something that is easy to use. A Ziploc baggy filled with ice usually leaks everywhere and isn’t reusable. Plus I cannot move around with it!

  76. 76
    Hillary says:

    I would probably get either the utility or back. I’ve always had back problems when driving for too long or uphill runs. In the past I’ve taken ice baths or used one of those freezer packs that you have to hold in place.

  77. 77
    Diane says:

    I would use the knee one. I have other compression sleeves but none with ice built in.

  78. 78
    Beth says:

    I usually ice my knees with an ice pack and a towel tied around my knee to keep it in place so I can still get things done while I’m icing :)

  79. 79
    Emily says:

    Oh my gosh!! I would be so beyond happy if I won this. I’ve told you this before but you’re the reason I got into running and am now training for a half marathon! I used to not be able to run a mile without stopping. I’ve had a few setbacks because of pains in my knees and this summer couldn’t even walk without braces. Thank goodness, I’ve learned to take it lighter, run slower, and avoid squatting, but after some runs I just need to ice them! The other day I resorted to icing with a frozen Chobani yogurt cup…not the most effective. I’ve been looking for a product like this for so long!
    I would definitely choose the knee one, since I ice that the most. :) Yay!

  80. 80
    Shannon says:

    I ice my back….would love to try!

  81. 81
    Kathy says:

    So awesome!!! Definitely the knees…for the whole family to use….this would be great!!

  82. 82
    Denise says:

    I usually ice my knee with good ol frozen peas, but end up a wet drippy mess. I would LOVE something that doesn’t make a mess and allows me to get off the couch!

  83. 83
    Katie Jackson says:

    I would choose the back! I work out a lot but I also have a daughter that is in a wheelchair, so all the carrying of my daughter (7yrs old) plus lifting her wheelchair in and out of the car, my back takes a beating. I usually ice with ice packs and a ace bandage.

  84. 84
    Leah says:

    This is AwEsOme!!!! I would do the knee…. Both my husband and I have problems. Me mainly when I run, I really am waiting to push my 1/2 marathon training up a notch and I do ice but have heard such amazing reviews of these products!! And sick of the mess left behind after the bag starts to leak :) . Would be awesome!:)

  85. 85
    Samantha says:

    I would definitely use the utility! Such a great idea!! I currently ice my shins and calves with frozen veggie pack. However when I want to eat veggies Im have to make sure I have at least two packs left for icing.

  86. 86
    Miss Irina says:

    I always end up icing only my shins! Darn shin splints…such a curse!

  87. 87
    Laura says:

    I would use the knee pack, because I always have to ice my left knee. Lately, it is whatever is frozen – peas, mango, strawberries… which, is messy and doesn’t stay in place :)

  88. 88

    I would use the back hyper ice pack for sure.

  89. 89

    I actually ice my IT band the most.

  90. 90
    Claire says:

    I would use the knee one, since that’s usually what needs icing after long runs. I currently use a bag of frozen corn since I always have some lying around, but that’s gotten sticky in the past from being right next to ice cream in the freezer haha (not a fun surprise to have melting ice cream dripping down your knee!).

  91. 91

    I would love to try the one for the knees, I’ve had some aching in my left knee for a couple weeks now, and have trouble finding good ice packs!

  92. 92
    Christine D. says:

    I’d definitely choose the one for my knee! My knees and shins have been giving me some trouble lately because I’ve been upping my mileage..I usually use ice packs put this would be so much easier!

  93. 93
    Wendy says:

    I need this in my life!! I would choose the one for the knee because I have to put ice everytime I run..I use an ice pack..
    btw love you blog :)

  94. 94
    Angie says:

    I would definitely choose the one for the knees. I have really bad knees, have had a couple of knee surgeries, cracked a kneecap, etc. I have used everything from Ziploc bags full of ice to those blue packs you keep in the freezer and then put in a cover and wrap around your knee like a heating pad.

  95. 95
    candy says:

    I would use the extended shoulder unit the most. I have had three shoulder surgeries and still keep pushing, so I need to ice regularly. This would be awesome to have!

    Joy says:

    I ice my ankles and knees the most, and I use a number of different ice packs to get the job done, although frozen peas and corn have done the job many times.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Angela says:

    I would love the knee product! I don’t often ice, I too, find it to be too messy to bother with. Sounds like a great product. Thank you for sharing!

  98. 98
    Sarah says:

    I have some knee issues so I would go with the one for knees. I have actually found a DIY ice pack thing on line where you mix rubbing alcohol and water and store it in a ziploc bag…or 3 in my case because of the leaks. My other options usually are frozen veggies, which my husband hates when I do that.

  99. 99
    Smitha says:

    I would get the knee pack! Right now I use one of those blue ice pack bags and gave myself frostbite! Ugh! :-(

  100. 100
    Kayleigh says:

    I need the knee one to try!! Injured it when I used to compete in dancing when I was 16, and years later it still plays up. I usually elevate it and ice it after long runs and it helps a little, but this would be fun to try! :) I also ice my left ankle/foot pretty frequently since I did some damage to it wearing heels during college (not worth it in the slightest :( ). I have ice packs and a little ‘sling’ for them that I got for my face when I got my wisdom teeth out – just improvize and wrap it round my knee/ankle now! hehe

    Also, “Giveaway will be open until Thursday night, February 14, 2014 at 8:00 PM PST” Is the day wrong or the date wrong?

  101. 101
    Juls says:

    I would choose the knee wrap as I find myself icing my knees the most. Especially after my long runs. I currently find the bag of peas works best for me so I would be super excited to upgrade to this!

  102. 102
    Holly B says:

    Extended shoulder to help with sore muscles after arms day!

  103. 103
    Lydia says:

    I would love to try the knee compression wrap! I’ve been experiencing some knee pain recently and have been using hot/cold ice packs. Although the pain doesn’t seem to be anything too serious (Dr. says it’s “runners knee’…come on, I’m no Kristin!!!) The knee compression sleeve would really help!!

  104. 104
    Nicole says:

    I would choose the HyperIce built for the back. I tend to throw that out more than anything….I tend to just use ice packs and heat packs on my back.

  105. 105

    I would definitely choose it for my knee! I’ve been having some pain after running sprints and this would be perfect.

  106. 106
    Rachel says:

    I would also choose the knee sleeve since that’s what I ice most. Usually I use frozen peas.

  107. 107
    Amy says:

    I would choose the knee one. I seem to have trouble with my knees when I run too many miles.

  108. 108
    Johanna Santiago says:

    I would absolutely choose the back one!!! I have been dealing with a bulging disc for six months now… and pregnant, it is causing crazy sciatica! I am a new follower of you… and look forward to a day of healing and being able to run again! Till then I will file your advice and inspiration. Thanks:)

  109. 109
    Bekah Sweat says:

    I would use the knee one. Sometimes my right knee gets a little tight, especially after speed work. This would work perfectly for my knee!! :)

  110. 110
    Kaarin says:

    I would choose the knee sleeve. This is the area that I ice the most and my problem area whenever I am training.

  111. 111
    Jenna says:

    I would have to choose the Knee ice brace because my knees always need some icing. If there was a ice brace for my HIPS, I would be ALL ABOUT THAT, my hips always KILL after a long run and I ice them, but the packs never stay put! I generally use ice packs, but have been known to use whatever freezer item is available for use, like frozen dinners and ice cream that needs to be melted for consumption LOL

  112. 112
    christine says:

    I would probably choose the back ice pack because I have a lot of tightness/soreness issues there and I could also see using it for my IT band since mine tends to hurt more in the hip area. I usually use ice packs that we have accumulated over the years, but they tend to be TOO cold and not flexible, so one of these would be really nice!

  113. 113
    meredith says:

    I always use frozen vegetables, but then I get too grossed out to actually cook them later!

  114. 114
    Sybil says:

    The knee! I ice my knee the most. And I just grab what ever veggie is in the freezer, but if I could wear my ice pack around that would be so awesome. The peas are not portable friendly.

  115. 115
    Dani says:

    This is so great! I’d definitely pick the knee. As a runner, runner’s knee is something I definitely struggle with! What a brilliant design.

  116. 116
    Deb E says:

    My right knee also hurts after a workout so I would choose the knee product. The back one would be nice but I can tolerate and am used to back pain. It’s knee pain that sets me on edge and makes me not want to work out. I don’t usually ice it but use a wrap for compression. I have a kid’s ice pack I use occasionally but maybe I should keep some frozen veggies on hand!

  117. 117
    Sybil says:

    I would ice my knee and would love the knee pack! I usually use a pack of veggies from the freezer, but I would love to have the knee brace so I could walk around!

  118. 118
    Sybil C says:

    I would use the knee pack! I usually use a package of veggies from the freezer, but having the ice strapped on would make it a lot easier to move around!

  119. 119
    Gina says:

    Hi Kristin! It would be a toss up between the knee or the back HyperIce pack. I usually ice my knees after a longer run but my back (and my husband’s!) sometimes gives me trouble as well. I usually use ACE ice packs but they just don’t stay cold or put for very long. These look awesome! Thanks for this opportunity!

  120. 120

    I would probably choose the utility pack. I ice my hips/IT bands the most right now. I usually use ice packs when icing.

  121. 121
    Stephanie says:

    I’d ice. My ankle :)

  122. 122
    Ellie says:

    I would go with the knee; this looks like it would be WAY better than an ordinary ice pack (I always make such a mess with those)!

  123. 123
    Michelle C says:

    I would probably pick the back icer but the utility would be nice to have too. I tend to ice my lower back the most but occasionally a tight or sore right quad. I had a really nice ice pack that had gel in it that I dearly loved but my wonderful 20 month old son bit it one night and made a small hole in it:(

  124. 124
    Kristen says:

    I would pick the knee for my IT band syndrome. It would be a nice replacement for all my bags of frozen peas!

  125. 125
    Courtney F. says:

    I would absolutely love the one for my knee!! I ice my knees daily and it’s always leaves my bed, couch, floor with a puddle from the melted ice!!

  126. 126
    Lisa says:

    I ice my back most of all (currently no knee or other joint problems, knock on wood). I used to use some nice frozen peas (carefully labelled DO NOT EAT) but then I got a little gel pack thing that you can freeze or heat up in the microwave. It works pretty well, but it’s too small – though I can’t complain since I got it for free in a race goodie bag. These HyperIce things are cool! I’ve never seen them before.

  127. 127
    Sarah says:

    Love your blog and follow you on Istagram too-you are so inspiring!! :) I would LOVE the one for the knee!! I usually have a nice bag of frozen edamame in the freezer to ice my knee(s). I recently moved to Alexandria, VA from Denver, CO and my body is taking a beating trying to adjust to colonial cobblestone/brick :( I’m also training for a few races in the near future, so this would help tremendously!! xo

  128. 128
    Mark says:

    I would choose the back wrap. These seem like really great products. As I have aged it seems like the body part that aches most after a hard (relatively) workout is my lower back.

  129. 129
    Jessica Magnant says:

    I’d definitely use the knee option. I actually do have problems with my knee, so after long runs I have to ice it so it doesn’t get stiff and helps soreness for the next long run. I currently go the ghetto route. I put ice in a large freezer bag and wrap it with an ACE bandage, this is WAY more convenient!

  130. 130
    steph says:

    i just injured my shoulder yesterday so this would be key!
    its so hard to keep the ice bag in place..especially when i try to sleep with ice.

  131. 131
    lauren says:

    The knee wrap for sure! I ran my first 50k last December and was dealing with a knee injury that started about a month before the race and am still struggling with. I signed up for my first 50 mile race so icing my knee will definitely be a regular thing. Currently, I just use frozen ice packs but they don’t sit on the knee well.

  132. 132
    Caitlin Elliott says:

    Ohhh this product looks awesome! I would pick the one for your back because I have several back problems as have had 4 back surguries in the last 8 years. I usually alternate between ice and heat on my back when it’s bothering me. For icing, I use those cheap ice packs you get in hospitals and doctor’s offices because I have to a of them around.

  133. 133
    Kari says:

    I would love the back one! My SI joint gets very tight and sore. They should make one for the hamstring! I usually use frozen peas to ice sore spots!

  134. 134
    Michelle Kim says:

    I would get the one for the knee. Though I don’t ice it much after training, I definitely feel like I need them after racing a marathon!

  135. 135
    Kim says:

    I would def use the knee one! My right knee has been bothering me since I ran a marathon last Fall. I’ve been using an ice-strap thing that I found at Walmart. It serves the purpose, but I would love something high-tech like the Hyperice!

  136. 136

    I’d probably like the one for the knee, because I had IT Band Syndrome with most of my pain at the fibular head. My PT gave me an ice cup to use when I needed an ice massage.

  137. 137
    Melissa R. says:

    Definitely get the knee one! I’m in training for Boston and tend to use a bag of ice instead—annoying!

  138. 138
    Susie says:

    I would love the one for the knee! I usually use frozen veggies to ice them!

  139. 139
    Julie says:

    WOULD DEF CHOOSE THE KNEE ..HAVING A LOT OF IBT PROBS LATELY AND THIS WOULD BE PERFECT FOR WHERE THE PAIN IS…!

  140. 140

    I usually just use a baggie filled with ice so this would be a great upgrade! If I ice anything, it’s usually my legs or back.

  141. 141
    Tasha says:

    I use a ziplock bag filled with ice, but it usually creates a mess! I would definitely use the utility ice wrap.

  142. 142
    Allison says:

    I have a torn ACL, so definitely the knee.

  143. 143
    Stephanie says:

    I need this! I usually use frozen veggies but I need this every since I hurt my IT band!! :)

  144. 144
    Ashley B. says:

    The knee Hyperice would be wonderful–I try to ice with an ice pack, but usually it’s such a pain to keep in place that I end up going without ice (and with more pain).

  145. 145
    Rachel says:

    I struggle with shin splints so I feel like I am constantly icing my shins! I would chose the multi purpose product which would probably work much better than my usually frozen veggies :)

  146. 146
    Laurel C says:

    I usually use whatever is in the freezer! Peas, corn, anything

  147. 147
    natasha says:

    Back or utility one though I HATE to ice! Probably beats the frozen veggies I would usually use though (:

  148. 148
    cindy todd says:

    I would definitely choose the utitlity. My shins and achilles are the spots I end up icing the most. I use ice packs, frozen hash browns or stand in the garbage can filled with ice water!!

  149. 149
    Tiffany says:

    I would love the knee hyperice! I’m always icing my knees, I usually just use some ice in a bag.

  150. 150
    Jessica says:

    The back one for sure!

  151. 151
    Pam says:

    I would probably get the knee one. I had ACL reconstruction last year and although it really doesn’t bother me too much anymore, it does swell from time to time.

  152. 152
    Sammi says:

    I could definitely use it to ice my calves! I get terrible calf knots:(

  153. 153

    Whoa!!! These look awesome! I would get the back one–primarily for my husband he has a lot of back issues and this would be amazing for him!!

  154. 154
    Jen Ressler says:

    I ice my heel with a frozen bag of corn

  155. 155
    Salvador Corona says:

    I would definitely choose the knee. I’ve been icing my knee everyday since I got my ACL reconstruction surgery. I usually use ice in a bag or if I forgot to buy more ice, I use whatever is in the freezer usually some frozen chicken patties. Thank you

  156. 156
    Jennifer says:

    I am currently sitting on a ice pack icing my piriformis muscle!

  157. 157
    Chris says:

    I have been looking at these for a couple of months now and would chose the one for my back. I aggravated an old back injury back in November and have been discussing Hyper Ice with my physical therapist. He suggested the usual less expensive ice packs, etc. I definitely believe Hyper Ice is the way to go! Thank you for the review!

  158. 158
    Donna says:

    I would like to try the one for the knee. I did a 90 day program and in the end of it there was alot of jumping, I iced my knees ALOT, I used a ziploc baggie, classy I know. So, now after I do any deep sqats or jumping I ice my knees :( This would be great!!

  159. 159
    Lyndsay Hocker says:

    I’d choose the knee wrap. I ice my knees and quads with just regular ice packs all of the time so it would be great and so much easier with this wrap!

  160. 160
    Kyle says:

    What product would you choose? The Back for sure!

    What body part, if any, do you usually ice the most? Back

    What do you usually use to ice? (Frozen peas, ice packs, etc.) Ice Packs or baggies of ice cubes.

  161. 161
    sam says:

    I’ve been doing a lot of lifting lately so I’d probably use it for my sore shoulder!

  162. 162
    danielle says:

    Knee for sure! I have a Velcro strap rice bag thing…which only works when I’m sitting. lol

  163. 163
    Hayley says:

    I have been icing my hammy and foot so much lately!!

  164. 164

    Am I the only one who had trouble finding where to comment. Well dang, but I thought my chances to win would be great if everyone else had the same trouble finding the comment place. Heh heh. Anywhoooooo I would choose the knee product as I have had two knee surgeries after a long and barely stellar soccer career injury. I would also choose the knee ice product if it guaranteed my legs would look like yours — slippers included!

  165. 165
    Tawnya Majeski says:

    I would definitely pick the knee one. I’ve had an overuse injury that has kept me mostly sedentary for the past 10 months! I ice my knee daily, after physical therapy exercises and stretches and could really use a mobile pack. Because of my injury (and past various ones) I typically use an ice pack.

  166. 166
    Megan says:

    I would love the knee one! I have to ice my knees a lot after runs and I’m always using random frozen vegetables/fruit from the freezer.

  167. 167
    Diana says:

    I’d love to try one of those on my knee. I usually use those gel ice packs, but they unfreeze too fast

  168. 168
    Tracy says:

    I think I would choose the extended shoulder wrap. It looks like an awesome product – definitely going to check it out!

  169. 169
    Donna says:

    I would choose the shoulder one, for my daughter. She is a softball player and ices her shoulder after every game and practice. We bought the round bag ice bags from the pharmacy and have even used baggies with crushed ice, wrapping them on her shoulder with saran wrap, yeah that is fun! This would be perfect for her.

  170. 170
    Beverly Aragon says:

    I’d go for the knee wrap as my ‘ol, aching knees have been screaming at me lately! Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway.

  171. 171

    Oh my gosh…that thing is something I could completely and totally USE!!! As you know I had to have knee surgery a year ago (a year ago today actually!!!) and I continue, and plan to continue, to ice my knee. It isn’t as necessary now as it was a year ago, but I find that it really does help keep inflammation down and that is critical for me.

    Right now I use a compression bandage and two freezable ice bags – the kind like you might put in your lunch box. However, I can’t put it in the freezer because then they are too hard to mold around my knee, so they go in the fridge where they get cold enough to help, but don’t have the full benefit of being SUPER cold. It’s a workaround that could definitely be improved upon with something like the HyperIce product shown.

    So to answer your question – it would definitely be the knee brace. :-)

  172. 172
    Angie Jerde says:

    I could put the back, shoulder or knee wrap to use right now! My workouts have been a little harsh on my body lately..time to fix that!

  173. 173

    Sweet sweet sweet pics & fun with family!

  174. 174
    Libby says:

    I would get the one for the back!

  175. 175

    I ice my calves or my knees the most, and I usually use ice packs! But it’s hard to keep them on :) .

  176. 176
    Keri says:

    What a great giveaway! I usually use ice packs, but this would be great.

  177. 177
    Rhonda says:

    I would pick the knee one. I have been icing after my long runs so this would come in very handy!

  178. 178
    Stephanie Hansen says:

    I usually just use a ziploc bag full of ice cubes on my knees or calves. This would be awesome to win!

  179. 179

    If I ice anything, it’s my shins. I use reusable ice packs. My daughter is a fastpitch pitcher though and steals all my ice packs for her shoulder! The shoulder hyperice would be amazing for her!

  180. 180
    Heather C says:

    I would LOVE the knee one! 7 knee surgeries later after 20 years of playing soccer and I am training for Ironman Chattanooga! Currently I use a large gel pack for my knees and I love an ice bath for my feet and ankles!

  181. 181
    Jen W. says:

    I would choose the back wrap. I’m always injuring my lower back and needing to ice it. I usually use frozen vege bags and gel packs but they are so messy and uncomfortable. These wraps look awesome!

  182. 182
    Mia says:

    I usually ice my knees and shins using ice packs that have a wrap around Velcro sleeve. And sometimes knee socks to keep them in place while moving. These sound like they would be easier.

  183. 183
    Jessica jones says:

    I use a ice pack but the Velcro sack no longer sticks so I have to safety pin it together and hold it against the couch to hold it in place. I always ice my shoulders, I have weak rotator cuffs which causes me to over use my shoulders. I would love to win the extended shoulder wrap, for after heavy lifting days and nights after a long day in the hospital.

  184. 184
    Amie says:

    I’d choose the utility one. I usually ice with frozen veggies or ice cubes.

  185. 185
    Wendy says:

    I would chose the back. I usually ice my lower back with a flexible cold pack.

  186. 186
    Pam says:

    my knee because i took a spill in the fall on some uneven pavement :(

  187. 187
    Angela W says:

    what a great idea for icing!! i would use the knee compression :)

  188. 188
    Erin Anderson says:

    I think I would probably use the knee one, but the back one looks pretty neat too!

  189. 189
    Alissa A says:

    I would definitely use the one for the back!
