As a former Yin yoga instructor I know the ligaments, tendons and joints are the "coldest" parts of the body meaning they have the least blood flow. Embrocation pre warms these structures even before you turn the pedals. This is a gentle introduction to embrocation compared to others I have used. I don't notice the heat for hours after a ride which is sometimes uncomfortable. This product also does not have and overpowering smell. This does a good job of warming and protecting those knees. I have also used it on my shoulders before rowing. Do be careful not to get the stuff in your eyes wash your hands thoroughly after applying. The same is true for any other sensitive areas. I put my bib tights on keeping them just below my knees. Chamois cream first and do not keep the jars next to each other please. Then rub a small amount on from just below the knee joint to just slightly above. I might dab a small amount on the outer side of each quad (think IT band) on very cold mornings. Pull up the bibs and go wash your hands. I am a big embrocation fan.
Iï¿½d been riding for a while without chamois crï¿½me and was just enduring saddle sores. DZ Nuts Pro was a lifesaver! Not only did it help clear up the saddle sores, but it has helped keep them from coming back; making it possible to keep on riding each day without a pain in the butt.
Love this product. No weird tingle sensations like some creams give you. Even after a long ride on a hot day things still don't stink! Trust me, I bought more. I used a couple other brands prior and didn't like them near as much. Don't hesitate, just buy it. Plus I used to ride without cream, but it's a night and day difference riding with it applied. Anything over twenty miles it gets applied. No more shorts sticking after the twenty five mile mark etc. absolutely love it.
I've used just about every chamois creme out there. Most of them do their job pretty well, but I have found that the Euro style Chamois Butt'r, works particularly well for my body. Long rides are tough on me with the chafing after the chamois creme breaks down. The Euro style is a bit thicker than most so it seems to do a better job for me longer. We're all different down below, and I have a real problem with chafing and eventual sores unless everything is just right. Euro style does a little better for me than most of the others.
