It is easy to just pretend that those mats are perfectly clean. But the truth is that there is a lot of funk in the gym that can quickly become a problem without proper care. Luckily Defense Soap bars fit perfectly in any stocking. Encouraging your fighter to use Defense Soap after every practice could keep the gross skin microbes at bay. There are four different types of soap offered by the brand. If you are feeling festive, we recommend the peppermint scent!
EPIC Bar Snacks
So the giant candy canes and boxes of chocolates are great for normal people, but food gifts for MMA fighters may need to be re-evaluated. This is especially true if your fighter is actively cutting weight. Don’t try and feed someone who is trying to eat very healthy. That is a fast way to see the true meaning of the word “Hangry.” EPIC Bar snacks such as meat bars, snack strips and jerky are a great way to satisfy the carnivorous MMA fighter. They also have great-tasting performance protein bars made with minimal ingredients such as eggs and dates.
