|Dr. Scholl's Active Series Insoles|
I've been going to the gym pretty regularly for a few months now, but have gotten almost no results. The biggest problem was, being overweight, I have a lot of pain in my feet. Running? Forget about it! Jumping? HA!
My husband has this thing he likes to do to tease me. He's 6'2" while I'm 5'1". So, when he wants a high five from me, he sticks his arm straight up and makes me jump. He thinks it's cute because I'm so short and accomplishing such a feat takes such a huge effort.
But that's just one jump. Jump roping? I wouldn't have even considered it. However, after using the inserts the first day and finding them extremely comfortable, I decided to push my workout to the next level. Today, I jumped rope with not a hint of pain. The first use was on the treadmill. I jogged for longer than I thought I would be able to, and with no foot or shin pain. I was seriously surprised. I honestly didn't think they would be that effective! Of course just using muscles I wasn't used too caused soreness, but that's to be expected.
So, if you're an insole skeptic, or if you're a runner/jogger and/or exercise regularly and have pain in your feet or shins, definitely try these. I'm looking forward to the results of my new more intense workouts and will keep you all updated.
From what I've checked, the prices run from around $19-$25 depending on where you buy them and what your shoe size is. I hope this post has been helpful. Let me know if you try them and what you think. Talk to you all later!
