Body Glide

u/yeeaaapppp · 8 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

I use something like Bodyglide. The key is the paraffin. It doesn't last all day, but a few applications a day helps where it counts.

EDIT: It also doesn't sting like some if you are already chaffed. If you ARE already chaffed, get some A&D cream for the end of the day. If you can wash your sensitive areas, do so. Otherwise do what you can to keep them clean and dry as possible.

I started running in April of this year, but here is the gear I have been running with so far:

u/angelfish2222 · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Whats the reasoning behind wearing shorts? Is it to protect your modesty in case a gust of wind blows your skirt/dress up, or is it to prevent 'chub rub'?

If it's the chub rub, I'm a convert to the Body Glide brigade. I used to wear shorts, but in hot weather they simply made me hotter & they'd keep riding up as I walked. I use body glide instead now, I apply it 2-3 times a day and it stops the painful bumps & I stay cool. It also lasts ages!

If, however, the shorts are for modesty reasons, I can't say I know of any light coloured or nude bike shorts. I used to wear black Nike cycling shorts under my dresses, they were made of the dri-fit stuff and were ok but did eventually ride up a bit during walking, or you could cut the legs off of a pair of tights (but they tend to ride up pretty fast too.) There are plenty of under-dress solutions out there, but I can't find any made out of cotton.

u/MadtownMaven · 7 pointsr/xxfitness

I highly recommend picking up a stick of Bodyglide and put that on your feet before wearing any sandals, heels, flats, or other shoes that would give you blisters or red marks. It works fabulously for preventing them. And a stick will last you like a year. It goes on clear and I've never had it leave any marks on any of my shoes of various materials.

u/ckb614 · 6 pointsr/running

The more often you run, the better your body will adapt to the stress, but you do have to build up slowly so your body can prepare itself for an increase in pounding. For someone at your weight, running is very high risk exercise, but your experience in other sports has probably strengthened your bones and joints a bit. Just listen to your body and back off if something hurts that shouldn't. Cycling is a much safer way to exercise, so you can work that in if your knees or shins ever hurt. As for chaffing, you're looking for Body Glide

u/FishermanHS · 6 pointsr/pokemongo

Hey if you're trying to get into running....I HIGHLY recommend getting into trail running instead of road running. Running on the trails is SOOOOO much more fun! Seriously. I switched to trail running from road running about a year and a half ago and I haven't hit the pavement since (unless I have to in order to get to the next trail :P ) .

Either way though, good for you OP! The best parts of this game IMO are that it forces people to be active even if they didn't used to be very active, AND you get to meet cool random people who also enjoy Pokemon which forces anti-social people to break out of their shell.

Stay focused on just walking/running more and more and you'll start shredding the weight. Doind 5k's and 10k's is definitely a great way to stay motivated, especially if you get friends to sign up with you. You can all train (running & Pokemon) together and keep each other motivated!

SIDE NOTE: Not sure if you're having problems with chafing or not (happens quite often with overweight people or people that just have bigger thighs) but THIS STUFF works wonders to prevent the chafing. I'm not a super big guy but when I first started getting into trail running I was having problems with chafing and a more experienced friend recommended this stuff. Also, cotton boxers/briefs will wreck you. Highly recommend investing in some nice compression shorts and/or other underwear that's geared towards running.

u/mortaine · 6 pointsr/C25K

Body glide is the best for this. I've used it for long and short runs, even a marathon-- if you run for more than an hour at a time, you'll find other areas that chafe, and you'll find yourself putting it on nipples, bra bands (if female), waistbands, and the bottoms of your feet (to prevent blisters!) GREAT stuff, and it does work.

You can substitute with stick deodorant in a pinch, but it's not as effective as bodyglide.

u/ainsley27 · 5 pointsr/wedding

I'm going to be wearing pretty underwear and nothing else. My bra will be built into the dress, as the back is way too low to wear anything else and the dress has straps, and it's a very simple A-line gown - I don't need any more poof than is built into the dress. I got a dress that suits my body, so I don't even need shape wear. I am going to apply Body Glide between my thighs and keep some in my emergency kit in case I need to reapply. No tights, no stockings, no socks of any kind, as I'm going to wear sandals. Not even a garter.

Just pretty underwear.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have a pair of Target shoes that used to squeak like crazy between two parts that crossed over each other. I rubbed some Vaseline between them and they haven't made a noise since. :D Another pair of Target shoes I have seems to be squeaking when it rubs on my arch, and I was thinking I'd try BodyGlide for that.

Ah, Target shoes. Why do I keep buying you? I just can't stay away...

u/notsomuchreally · 4 pointsr/USMC

Get him small things that can mildly improve life in the field. Body Glide - helps with chaffing, good for the feet in boots). NUUN He can put this in his water bottle (?) and rehydrate better. Tactical Carabiner. Really good socks - not sure if coyote green or brown is right, someone here will know. He won't have the time or space for many fun activities so comfort in the field will be a priority. A gift box of comfort would be nice IMO.

u/Support_Agent314 · 4 pointsr/WaltDisneyWorld

I've heard Body Glide is a favorite of many park go-ers.

I work in a kitchen and am constantly sweating and moving so I chafe a lot. This stuff work wonders. Additionally, Gold Bond Medicated Body Powder is great for easing irritation afterwards.

u/Bruce_Bruce · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

I'd never herd of it before as well, this stuff looks like it could be it. Will give it a try in the future.

u/Furiouschipmunk · 3 pointsr/running

Body Glide is the best I've used

u/doingkermit · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I used to chafe constantly when working out / running / cycling in the inner thigh region. So much so that I can get to the point where bleeding happens and it hurts like a motherfucker and I can't walk the rest of the day or next.

I got this:

I saw bodyglide rcmnded in another thread and went ahead and tried it. Applied to my inner thighs before working out and after a shower. I haven't chafed once since I got it. Freaking amazing stuff.

Edit: Odorless and doesn't leave any marks, if that makes any difference. seriously amazing stuff 10/10

u/Scyth3 · 2 pointsr/running

Welcome to the wonderful world of chafing. Get running shorts with built in liners (I like Nike 2-in-1's for instance), or wear running compression underwear.

Even with those I'll still chafe, and so I body glide everything in that region before a run no matter the distance.


TLDR: Running shorts + Body Glide.

u/protomor · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Looked it up on amazon $4.50 - $184.99

Body Glide. kept my thighs, under-boob, and heels super happy during a 2-day festival on the beach last month. 10/10.

u/Varantain · 1 pointr/singapore

Or order it from, y'know, Amazon (ships free >$125 USD).

u/Ankleshank · 1 pointr/spartanrace
u/yoinkmasta107 · 1 pointr/Fitness

Body glide and/or boxer briefs.

u/rsix8t · 1 pointr/bodybuilding

Coconut Oil or body glide

I've used body glide for triathlons, half marathons, 5k's and everything in between. It's good stuff. You can even use it on your feet if you run without socks. I frequently use it on my arm pits, HR monitor, and thighs.

They'll have it at your local running store.

u/ChronosFT · 1 pointr/popping

Looks like it has multiple causes, like a chafed spot that turned into an infected hair. Once you recover (see doctor), I would recommend a daily application of baby powder when you get out of the shower, or perhaps you should consider using: Body Glide

u/RightShoeRunner · 1 pointr/running

Lubricate. Lubricate, Lubricate.

Obviously, NO cotton, and make sure your lower gear is made to wick sweat away from your skin. Some folks say the pricier compression gear works better (Nike, UnderArmour, etc). Not sure about that, but I spent about $30-40 for mine (if you deal with chafing a lot, you will be willing to pay much more, lol).

I strip my compression shorts off immediately after my run, and try to rinse/shower off as quickly as I can after the run. That seems to help.

Regarding lubrication. You can slather yourself in copious amounts of Vaseline. However, it makes a mess, stains, and wears off fairly quickly. I actually use a combination of three different lubes.

BodyGlide: comes is a deodorant like stick form. Much thicker than all the others, and seems to hold up for a long while. Read through the reviews here:
https://www.amazon.com/Bodyglide-Original-Anti-Chafe-2-5-Ounce-Packaging/dp/B0043S06GI/ref=sr_1_1?s=outdoor-recreation&ie=UTF8&qid=1467233089&sr=1-1&keywords=body+glide

The second one is SportsSlick, which has a more vaseline like consistency. It has an antibacterial agent and an anti-fungal one too. Also doesn't stain. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007OC0A2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Lastly I use Tom's SportShield liquid roll-on. I usually use one of the top two, and then do a once over on the peas & carrots and any other area of concern with this stuff. https://www.amazon.com/2-Toms-SportShield-Liquid-Roll-On/dp/B009NC3MVK/ref=pd_sim_200_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=51OZcLY2M%2BL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL320_SR240%2C320_&refRID=SWFWZZ17971XA9SS2MBG

I am a slow, novice trail runner, but I am running 5-6 days a week, 4-6 miles a day. Sadly, I have too much experience with chafing, but the above works pretty well for me. Good luck!

u/feministkillj0y · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

I second the Body Glide recommendation. Great stuff! If I'm not wearing shorts under something I use it.

u/enragedSTD · 1 pointr/ultimate

I'm a huge believer in BodyGlide. I believe it's meant for male runners to lube their nipples, but in college I had a teammate who used it on her feet to prevent blisters, and she was really good, so I started doing it too. Unfortunately I don't think it's made me any better at Ultimate, but on the bright side I haven't gotten any blisters since. I used it on my feet during a week-long backpacking trip last year, also to great effect.

u/WightHouse · 1 pointr/Stronglifts5x5

Don't under estimate your gains. I've been doing 5x5 for a few months now and I've definitely seen my thigh size increase. So much so others are noticing. Anyhow, many runners deal with chafing and there's specific Anti-Chafe Balm you can get. I've never tried it, but back in my Track & Field days we wore compression shorts and this resolved the issue as well.
