Dr Pocket (Portable TENS Massager)

Interesting idea.

Interesting idea.

The Dr Pocket is a Portable TENS Massage device, for a quick dose of pain relief as needed.

Although I'm slightly skeptical about the ability of such a small device, I'm certainly keen to try one out here.

How about you - ever used anything similar (perhaps the first generation of the device)?

NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

And so, if you've been spending much time training or competing as of late, you might as well learn how to handle injuries if they do happen.

During the past week we've discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, the 'Paper' and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.



Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
