Jack Black’s Dragon Ice Relief and Recovery Balm ($23)

Jack Black’s Dragon Ice Relief and Recovery Balm

This balm is formulated with Dragon’s Blood; you read that right, a dark resin from the Upper Amazon that works to reduce inflammation. It also contains Willowherb bringing additional anti-inflammatory properties and MSM to combat joint and muscle pain. They come together to improve circulation and relieve aches and pains. If you’re headed back into the gym and still sore you can benefit pre-workout as well. It also contains menthol that will warm up overworked muscles.

Tiger Balm Muscle Rub ($7)

Tiger Balm Muscle Rub

Bring the heat like a professional athlete and pitch a tube of Tiger Balm Muscle Rub into your gym bag. Rub it on your aches and pains before or after strenuous workouts for targeted relief. It works just as well on everyday strains and backaches from stress or heavy lifting. You can reapply three or four times a day to get out in front of the pain.

Man Salt Muscle Soak ($18)

Man Salt Muscle Soak

Nothing beats soaking in hot tub after tough workout. Man Salt Muscle Soak is not your girlfriend’s bubble bath. Think of it as a post-workout supplement that will repair abused muscles. Fill up the tub and let the Dead Sea and Pacific Salts draw out harmful toxins and reduce water retention.
