Onnit has been dropping a bunch of new and updated products lately which I’ve held off writing about, but now that the company has updated one of its flagship products, I figured I should write a little bit about it.
The new Shroom Tech Sport formula has been updated to include a new ingredient: Ashwagandha. I had never heard of this herb before today, but some people call it “Indian Ginseng” which I had also never heard of until today. This particular ingredient features withanolides, alkaloids, and fatty and amino acids, all of which help the body cope with stress, which is useful during rigorous exercise and after putting your body through a tough workout. The product page on the Onnit Labs website has more detailed information if you’re curious.
Also updated recently are the Onnit basic kettlebells. If you’ve already purchased them, you likely won’t see a reason to upgrade. But if you’ve been wavering back and forth on buying some, now’s a good time to buy.
The new version of Onnit’s traditional kettlebell features an improved design and new coating. The coating is still chip and rust resistant so it will look nice for years to come. But it’s now smooth enough that it won’t irritate your skin when it’s rubbing on your hands and arms, and it has just a little bit of texture to hold gym chalk. There’s also more handle clearance, which comes in handy when performing snatch and press lifts, and the handles are longer which makes the horn grip more comfortable for us savages with giant hands like a bunch of bananas. If that wasn’t enough, there’s now high contrast lettering which makes the bells easier to read when your vision’s blurry from dehydration and working out too hard.
Also updated are the Onnit Battle Ropes. They are now available in a thinner 1.5 inch rope in 50 foot and 40 foot lengths, and also at a 10 foot jump rope length if a traditional jump rope isn’t heavy enough for you. These ropes are purple in color with black handles. There’s also a light blue battle rope which, like the purple one, is 1.5 inches wide and available in 50 foot, 40 foot, and 10 foot jump rope sizes. Of course, the original black and yellow battle ropes are still available too. There was also a limited edition 2.5 inch battle rope that was bright blue with red handles in a 30 foot length, but it is apparently sold out.
That’s it for today. Have a great weekend guys!
