OK, so you are new to the world of Triathlon. Good for you and welcome aboard. We're happy to have you as a colleague, fellow racer and friend. Now off to the shower with you to get rid of all of that excess body hair.

What? I know, this may sound a little intimidating at first, but when you realize the benefits of shaving off unwanted leg, arm and body hair, then you'll be reaching for LEG LUBE® Performance Shave Gel in no time flat. Trust me, I was once hesitant like you.

I started shaving my legs several years ago mostly to fit in. I would go to races and feel a little out of place with my 'gorilla hair' so I took the plunge and shaved it all off one day. Then I realized that there were some real benefits to being a 'hairless wonder.' One of which is that prior to shaving, I hated putting on sun screen. The lotion would get all 'gooked up' in my hair and it was a real pain. Since you will be doing a lot of training, you will quickly learn that sunscreen is really important. After shaving, I find it much easier to use and I avoid burning which makes my skin look healthier.

Outside of making sunscreen easier to apply, there are a number of other practical reasons why a triathlete might want to shave.

First, shaved body parts heal quicker after a crash and tend to be less susceptible to infection, ingrown hairs, etc.

Second, scarring can be minimized as antibiotic ointment and salves are easier to apply and wounds are easier to clean.

Third, Kinesiology Tape is easier to apply, holds better and comes off with less pain on shaved skin.

Fourth, wetsuits and compression socks / sleeves go on easier and don't pull on your hair.

Fifth, massage is more enjoyable

And finally, you’re muscles look stronger when they are shaved, which in turn makes you feel better and perhaps, maybe ride and run a little faster. Don’t believe me, then why do bodybuilders shave their entire bodies? You get the idea.

So, if you haven't taken the plunge already, then I encourage you to give it a whirl and don't forget the LEG LUBE®. It was created by athletes - for athletes and we won't let you down.

Best.

LEG LUBE® Founder and President, Austin Baskett, is probably a lot like many of you – a competitor but not a professional.

In 1989 his passion for cycling was brought to a new level after he and a friend biked 5,000 miles down the West coast and across the entire United States.

Since then, he has been an avid cyclist, marathoner and triathlete participating and competing in a multitude of events. It was during this time when he started to notice that there weren’t any products specifically aimed at taking care of an athlete’s legs.
