Any training or physical activity regimen requires an often-overlooked aspect: recovery. This is a crucial component, and without the proper recovery, your body will eventually suffer the consequences. Sometimes recovering faster can be that extra edge your training was missing.

This is where Amp Human’s PR Lotion comes in. It’s the sports lotion you apply before your workout and is trusted by USA Cycling, Ironman champions and Olympic athletes to help the body function better by giving it more of what it naturally needs — bicarbonate. Bicarb neutralizes acid created by your muscles as a by-product when you work at your limit. This helps you maximize your workout, do more of what you love and come back strong the next day. Because PR Lotion is scientifically proven to amplify what your body naturally does, it’s a no-brainer for anyone looking to recover faster.

Fresh Deals


Timex x Todd Snyder Military Watch
Save 25%: Another Todd Snyder x Timex collaboration, another home run. This watch (available in 3 colors) sports a slim profile, a highly-legible dial, a reliable quartz movement and 1970s military-inspired cues with just enough modern styling to take it over the top. It even comes with an extra NATO strap in the box, so you can change up the look without laying out more cash. If you’ve been looking for a go-anywhere, do-anything watch, now’s your chance — pick one of these up while they’re on sale! — Oren Hartov


Tanner Goods Record Rack
Save 40% This vinyl rack, made of powder-coated stainless steel wire and shaped into a simple, straightforward design, can showcase all the records that you’ve let languish in a crate under your bed. It’s a must-have accessory for your at-home vinyl setup or even the perfect gift for your favorite hi-fi lover. Best yet: it’s 40 percent off at Huckberry. — Andy Frakes


Drake’s Knit Hats
Save 35%:While the worst winter storms may be over for some part of North America, that doesn’t mean cool weather is a thing of the past. If you’re looking for a nice hat to weather out the last weeks of winter, head over to Todd Snyder today. You can save 35 percent on some timeless knit hats from Drake’s. The British accessories brand offers the Scottish-made style in three colors — olive, turquoise and yellow — for just $49. And while you may not get the most wear out of it this season, this hat is never going out of style and you’ll be able to wear it in years to come. — John Zientek


Lodge 12-Inch Cast-Iron Skillet
Save $15 Good news: today, the 12-inch skillet is marked down somewhere other than Amazon — get it for just $15 at Sierra Trading Post.
Its 10 inches of cooking space (the 12-inch designation refers to a wall-to-wall measurement, which includes the slope of the walls) is the ideal size for most people’s stovetop burners — any bigger and heat distribution issues will be exacerbated, any smaller and you can’t cook a whole lot. Plus, unlike Lodge’s behemoth 13- and 15-inch pans, the 12-inch will actually fit in a kitchen cabinet. As with all Lodge pans, the 12-inch comes pre-seasoned and ready to cook out of the box (we recommend starting with bacon). —Will Price


Couples Sleeping Bags Are a Thing and These 3 Are on Sale
Save up to $120: Sleeping bags are solitary by design, but not these ones, all of which are on sale for up to 36 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
