Anyone buy into these?
I don't go out of my way to purchase these (I have a box of free samples from when I used to work at Powerhouse). Was just curious if people actually subscribe to topical pain relief.
Icy hot at times has been a godsend for me.

i used biofreeze frequently but i dont even attempt to run these days so i generally dont use it anymore
tiger balm got me through some workouts years ago with some bad elbow pain. that stuff is magic.
I may have "Love" on my head, but i have Hate in my heart.
icy hot was amazing back when I played baseball...coaches hated it though because we would end up throwing through our injuries and make them worse (of course they wouldn't let us not throw either)
Deadlift - 475, Front Squat - 320, Back Squat - 405
I've thought about using tiger balm but didn't want to wast my money but I think I will grab some Now that I see people having results with it
Icy Hot never did much for me, nor did Biofreeze. "Atomic Balm" is the way to go if you can get it (imo).
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

They all run their course. You'll find overtime that they all start to seem less effective. Tiger balm is pretty tame tbh. If you can find some equine grade liniment, that will light you up pretty good and probably cause more pain than the discomfort you are trying to ease, temporarily anyway. I use ralgex (heat) but a few of my training partners use Uddermint (for cows) regularly and swear by it.
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
