Metrosexual Triathlete - Tip Of The Week

Guys - there's no doubt we've all had many of them - long & hard training sessions.  So when we are done absolutely dominating for the day, it's no surprise that we are a little fatigued.  But since real men train at four in the morning, even a three hour session is over by seven.  The day is just starting for mere mortals, and like it or not we've still got to face another day in the normal world.

One great way to get things started is to hit the shower with a Tea Tree Body Bar by Paul Mitchell ($10.50 at Body Encounter).  Simply put, the Tea Tree Body Bar is the best wake up call for weary skin.  C'mon, go ahead and give your body the tingly treat it deserves after that brutal workout.  And there's more - The Tea Tree Body Bar not only leaves you squeaky clean, it exfoliates and helps stimulate all skin types, while the natural extracts of lavender, tea tree oil and peppermint leave you fresh and invigorated.

Once you step out of the shower, there's simply nothing better than slipping into a paisley silk robe from Majestic ($195.00 at Nordstrom) before making a cup of Celestial Seasoning's Honey Vanilla Chamomile Herbal Tea ($2.99 at Celestial Seasonings).

Once the tea is steeped, it's then time to sit down on the couch and scratch your balls while watching Sports Center.  You've earned this, and you know what's up.

To back my claim up, I'm giving away a Tea Tree Body Bar.  If you'd like a chance to try it out, here's all you have to do:

1.  Be male.
2.  Leave a comment telling me how much you can bench (minimum 8 reps).
3.  Leave another comment letting me know what your favorite pair of shoes from the current A. Testoni men's collection is.

Good luck, guys - to the extent that you believe in luck, that is.  I'll pick the winner on June 10th.

Damn! I was really hoping to win so I could pair it with some tea and a silk robe and a good ball scratch! Male Schmale! Good luck Men! I'll be back to check out what you can bench!

You are awfully sexist.

NattyBumpo said...

Circle of Dads competition. OK, tomorrow I will go to the gym and give you a number, though it will be low, I'm a runner, and not that concerned with bench press, but we will see what I can do. Game on Bro!

Tortuga_Runner said...

Ah, this is so great! I love tree tree oil scent, paisley robes and scratching my balls...oh wait, maybe not the last thing:) Topping it off with tea is like heaven, but can we scratch the sports TV and watch chick flicks instead?

NattyBumpo said...

OK, the only shoes on there I like are, HS01498, Ocean blue calf sandal with logo, for after running a marathon, who wants to keep your hot running shoes on, when these bad boys are waiting in the checked bag?

XLMIC said...

Mmmmmm... nothing says 'paisley silk robe' like tea-tree scented balls...

NattyBumpo said...

But these are mt "go-to's" when Nikes just won't do: http://www.danner.com/boots/acadiar-mens-womens-uniform-boots.html

Well, I can't bench anything, never tried but I can haul a 50# bag of plaster over my shoulder. My favorite footwear are a pair of Lariat steel toe cowboy work boots. Chris K. says I am the most studly runner in the south. But alas, I am not a guy and I actually like being a girl.

Mike said...

haha, I have no idea what I can bench since I don't lift. I've never even heard of those shoes. I am a male. Does one out of three count? Are you sure you are watching Sports Center and not Lifetime Movie Network (or lame mom network like my kids call it)?

Kate said...

I think you should consider Amanda and keep her guy-blogger giveaway streak going. Besides...weren't you supposed to be kissing her a$$ or something?

I don't bench press, but I accidentally did squats with 115 pounds (bc I am math-impaired)...but I'm also not a guy and have never heard of those shoes, so I'm 0 for 3.

I read an summary of a research journal article that was posted in Men's Health UK about 5 years ago claiming that Tea Tree stimulates male breast growth. just thought I would share.

Kovas said...

Not just male, but mas macho

Kovas said...

I don't count the weight or the reps, just as long as the spotter is a hot chick I'm good

Kovas said...

Clearly there is only one choice - The coral, grass green and white suede calf and calf sneaker with western design.

misszippy said...

I'm conflicted here...on the one hand, I am said I can't enter. On the other, I can't wait to see the winner showing off in his robe with tea cup in hand.

Tri4Success said...

I can bench press either of my sons as long as they don't wiggle around too much.

Tri4Success said...

I'm gonna go with M80242, the dark brown suede calf mocassin with rubber sole. There's something very vintage cool about the grass green, white and black perforated calf sneaker but no idea when I'd ever wear them.

TRI714 said...

I cant talk to you when your like this. Who hacked into Patrick the Irish thugs account and stole him. Bring him back please.

Carry on, nothing to see here.

Emz said...

I'm totally mail.

I bench - way more than you p-funk.

I only wear ferragamo.

XLMIC said...

Go, EMZ!

I can't believe none of these pussy guys would even give a number for what they bench! I'll bet that my skinny-ass, 125-lb womanliness used to bench more than any of them!

JessiePants said...

I'm envisioning something sort of "American Psycho" esque here...

Colleen said...

This is freaking hysterical!

Caratunk Girl said...

Ha ha this is awesome. Do you hold your pinkie out when you drink tea?

danny said...

I'm a male and like all males I can bench my body weight. I weigh 167lbs.

danny said...

And the A.testoni website is a bit too post-modern for my browsing habits (and slow). I hope this doesn't prevent me from winning some awesome swag.

Chris K said...

I guess it beats Kovas' bra giveaway. Barely.

Kovas said...

Wow, ChrisK is the first guy I've met who professes to be manly but doesn't want to get a bra off a woman ('s website).
