QM Sports Warming Embrocation
Everyone knows a good warm up is essential to a great workout or ride. You would never dream of tackling an uphill climb without first prepping your legs for it. Sometimes, when the weather is just right (or just wrong, in this case), your muscles need a little help and boost to get warm and stay that way. The best solution to this problem is to apply a warming lotion
, cream or other warming embrocation to the area you will be using in the workout (in a cyclist’s case, this would be your legs). When it comes down to it, you want to use the best warming cream out there. QM Sports Care is the official sponsor of many pro cycling teams (most notably, OmegaPharma-Quickstep and Lotto). If it’s what the pros use, you know it’s got to be good.
QM Sports Care Embrocation warming lotion
come in three different levels of heat for three different riding temperatures. This approach is better than one of a one heat warming lotion for all weather riding because your legs will naturally warm up to some degree on their own and the last thing you want to do is over heat your legs.
The first level of heat is their QM 1. This warming lotion is considered mild and is perfect for cool weather conditions, typically below 75 degrees Fahrenheit or 24 degrees Celsius, or in wet conditions. This provides mild muscular heat with deep muscle penetration but keeps your skin cool. This can help with mild pain and should be kept away from your eyes.
The next level of heat is QM 2, and you’ve guessed it! It’s the Hot warming lotion. It has a higher concentration than the warm embrocation and is made from 100% natural vegan cream base and active essential oils. The hot warming lotion provides medium muscular heat with deep muscle penetration and is ideal for cold, wet conditions (below 59 degrees Fahrenheit).
The final level heat is the QM3 and is Extra Hot. This warming lotion is ideal for those really chilly days of less than 44 degrees Fahrenheit. This warming lotion offers high muscular heat with deep muscle penetration. Due to its high concentration (it is made from 100% natural vegan cream with active ingredients being 100% essential oils of capsicum, menthol and vitamin E), apply sparingly and be sure to avoid contact with your eyes.
No matter what your riding condition, if you fear your muscles won’t get and stay warm, QM Sports care has just the right warming lotion for you. We recommend just starting with the warm, unless it’s winter or you live in a particularly cold climate. If you feel you need a hotter warming lotion, feel free to move up to the hot. We really only recommend the extra hot warming lotion with cold, particularly wet, winter riding. Each heat level comes in a 250ml tub and should be applied sparingly to avoid over heating. QM stands for Quality in Massage and only uses the best natural ingredients.
is made with all natural items.
