As per the xxfitness FB page, I present the magical blue leggings. True to fit, stay put, pass the squat test, on the cheap.

u/gillyyak · 18 pointsr/fashionwomens35

>Alternately, compression leggings are a mainstay in exercise wear for a reason. They might be "skin tight" as OP describes, but they also stay put through the whole workout

Another grand thing about compression tights, capris or shorts, is that they hold your muscles firmly in place. No flapping, no bulges, and the compression will actually help prevent post-exercise soreness by reducing water retention caused by inflammation. I find that after losing a bunch of weight, my loose skin doesn't do a good job of holding my muscles in place - compression tights help so much with that.

The sound can transmit through the concrete and to your table, in effect making your table into a surface that can transmit sound.

Yoga Blocks can serve as cheap monitor stands. Might need some large blocks for the 8'' monitors though.

u/wsilver · 11 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

These are my favorite leggings, apparently they're technically yoga pants, which I guess is what I like about them. They're structured and opaque which is what I want since I'm a legging-as-pants sort of girl. Also I've had them a year and a half and they're still doing great.

My favorite tunic is from Eileen Fisher, I don't see it on their site right now but it's similar to this but longer and with a slightly higher neckline, and it's got a thick inner layer with a thin outer one. I got it for $10 from VV and it's my favorite thing I own right now. Trying to scope out some others to add to my rotation because it makes me sad to wash it because then I have to stop wearing it.

u/BearOnALeash · 11 pointsr/Lollapalooza
u/gbrenik · 9 pointsr/Vive

I got THESE. they're a bit more expensive than alternatives, but they make up for it because:

  • Each side is a different color, so I can customize to look a bit nicer in the future, if I wanted a standard flat black or gray. For now, I like the game-y checkerboard look. :)
  • They're 3/4" thick instead of the standard 1/2", which makes them comfy to sit down on for a long period of time.
  • There are optional beveled edges that I added on. I just messaged the seller and he worked out a new price for me with the added beveled edges.

    Edit: closeup of beveled edge:
u/TexasJIGG · 8 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

Do what I did, buy this.

No idea why star mats are expensive, but this is a great alternative, and it isn't so slick that your ships just slide around.

u/bkkgnar · 7 pointsr/audioengineering

Cool idea! I've heard that these work really well for slightly more expensive solution.

u/xeonrage · 6 pointsr/ZReviews
u/atomic__llama · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Depending on what you're looking for (I know that Lu La Roe has a lot of crazy patterns, right?), I'd recommend 90 degrees by reflex from Amazon. I have the yoga pants which are basically long leggings, nice thickness. I am 5'8", size 10 and I have a M that goes all the way past my ankles. I have other leggings by them that are shorter that I use mostly for working out.

u/ranterbach · 5 pointsr/audiophile

Just a suggestion, these yoga blocks make decent isolating somewhat shock-absorbing stands.

u/cannedunicornmeat · 5 pointsr/xxfitness

These magical unicorn leggings. ;)
I own two and they are not see through (they pass the squat test!) they are super cute and hold every part of me together!

u/CubsFan2012 · 5 pointsr/boardgames

I would be happy too. I used a tutorial video from YouTube as a starting point. His video states that it can be done for $150 but that is assuming you already have a bunch of stuff on hand. Overall mine cost about $125 and that involves me using an old table as a starting point.

Instead of bulding the legs from scratch I used the base of an old table, part of this was to save cost, part was to eliminate what I considered a lot of bulkiness. The playable surface measures 48in x 48in.

I decided against installing the cup holders and dice trays as I felt that they took up too much space. Instead I plan on installing removable cup holders in the future so that when they are not being used they can be removed.

Overall I was able to complete the initial building in one day, this will take more time if you are new to woodworking or if you have to build the legs from scratch. It than took another week to properly finish the wood. I have 1 coat of stain and 6 coats of polyurethane on all wood surfaces, I sanded with 320grit sandpaper between each coat of polyurethane. After the final coat of polyurethane, I let it dry for 48 hours and did a final wetsanding with 1500 grit sandpaper to provide a silkly smooth finish.

For the padded surface I used a 6x6 yoga mat bought off of Amazon. I than cut it down to size and secured to surface with removable double sided tape.

For my project I used the following materials, some of which I had on hand but a lot I bought.

Supplies Used

  • 8 - 1x4x6 Top Choice Pine
  • 4 - 1x6x6 Top Choice Pine
  • 1 - 4x4 Finished Plywood 1 1/4in Wood Screws
  • 2in Wood Screws
  • Wipe-on Poly (Glossy)
  • Stain (Your Choice) Wood Filler

    Tools Used

  • Miter Saw
  • Drills Rulers
  • Random Orbital Sander
  • Foam Brushes/Wiping Clothes
  • Dust Vac
  • Dust Mask
  • Eye Protection

    If anyone has any questions I will try to respond in the most timely manner.
u/Dagobah-Dave · 4 pointsr/XWingTMG

Mousepad material is designed to be low-friction so you can slide a plastic thing over it easily. You don't want that for X-Wing. What you want is something grippy, durable, thick enough so that it can lay across two tables without sagging, and won't bunch up or attract pet hair.

The only gaming mat you want is going to be a yoga mat. Get a black extra-wide yoga mat and speckle some stars on it with an old toothbrush. Cut it into two 3x3 foot sections and throw away the little excess.

Here you'll get two game mats out of one yoga mat for $23:

Seriously, the only thing better than a yoga mat would be a yoga mat with nebulae and stuff printed on it. Until then, this is really the best thing.

u/thegreatsharkhunt · 4 pointsr/Coachella

These ear plugs, these bandannas and definitely a Camelbak (the lighter the better or all his friends will ask him to carry their shit in it and that gets old, and heavy, fast). Or, if you want to do something a little different, schedule an in-hotel massage on Sunday late morning/early afternoon before he goes into the fest for the day. Seems over the top, but leaves you feeling fresh as fuck when everyone else is hurting on Day 3. I've done it with Palm Springs Massage the past few years and they do a great job.

u/jsaxl31 · 4 pointsr/Coachella

Cooling towels!!!

These are a must, especially for the campground. It's a special mesh towel that stays cold for a long time after you wet it, but doesn't drip. Toss it on your friend's back when they look exhausted and dehydrated, and they will instantly be re-energized back to life and love you forever.

u/mathay86 · 3 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

Get this ships and space rocks don't really move around from bumping at all and it's super cheap and exactly the right size. This is on my game table at home and I have x-wing mats since most official tournaments require those.

u/mike_stifle · 3 pointsr/synthesizers

Buy these, only 12 bucks and your monitors and ears will love you for it.

u/staomeel · 3 pointsr/headphones

You might try these yoga blocks for sound isolation pads. They are easy to mod to fit different specs.

u/cheez_zombie · 3 pointsr/Coachella

Cooling towel. It's been a lifesaver for the past two years and I'll never go without it again.

u/TRK27 · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Amazon sells a relatively inexpensive 6x3 black yoga mat. I use it for Star Wars: Armada and epic-scale X-Wing games and it works great.

Upvote for Meddle! YNWA!!

After you get those speakers up off the desk, like u/sharkamino says, get a better cartridge for turntable. I'd recommend the Nagaoka MP-110. It's a great cart for the money. Very detailed and a little bit warm. It's available on Amazon for about $120. You'll be stoked listening to Pink Floyd with it.

You might also want to get her some yoga rosin while she breaks in the new mat. It's very helpful!

u/daggertx · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG
u/critical_sass · 3 pointsr/tall

I have an extra long mat that I got from, I can't recall the brand right now but it was mid-range (not Lulu, not the cheapest out there). I like it, I believe it's 72" long, but I could actually stand to have a longer mat for certain poses.
Good looking 72" long mat:
Even longer but quality looks sketchy:

So at least you know they're out there!

u/infomofo · 3 pointsr/yoga

I keep a Rosin Bag in my yoga mat bag. It's tiny and you can dab it on your hands and your mat before or during class. Just like a gymnast or Lebron James, you can use the rosin and it will absorb the sweat from your hands and keep them from sliding during Down Dog.

This is the one I like:

u/mlph · 3 pointsr/audiophile

If you don't care about aesthetics that much, you could use Yoga Blocks which are relatively cheap and from what I read, a good alternative. They are similar to MOPAD isolation pads.

EDIT: A couple more alternatives -

DIY Cinderblock Stands

DIY Rob's Stands

DIY TNT Stubby

DIY Video Stands

u/josh6179 · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

Yoga mat. Amazon

It's nice and grippy (much better than the wood table top we were playing on). Also, the mat is big enough that you can make 2 play surfaces out of it.

u/CardKnight · 3 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

A good way to start out would be with 200-300 point matches. Still manageable to play on a 3x3, and can be a quick way to learn the ropes and see some combos working out. Time could definitely be an issue, as a full game with teaching would be well over 2 hours long. Along those lines, this is a super cheap way to get a full sized play area for much cheaper than the FFG mats. Plus, if you're playing at 200-300 points, you can have two games going, each on a 3x3. You can definitely mark up one side to have a middle line, deployment zone, etc...

There's the other ones that people recommend for people starting out:

Limit upgrades on ships

Limit # of squadrons/no squads to start (It can be nice not worrying about a whole command)

No objectives(passing initiative may help or custom starter objectives. Contested outpost is always an easy one)

Etc, etc...

There's a lot to this game. Keeping it simple to start is recommended. Love the idea!

u/Caldebraun · 3 pointsr/boardgames

I just ordered THIS mat and it will arrive next week.

3' x 6' whose length I will trim to fit my table.

I'll let you know how it works out.

u/emoat · 3 pointsr/XWingTMG

An extra wide yoga mat works great as a play surface. I don't know if you can find anything with more grip. Link.

u/TheKingOfMooses · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

I'm not the OP, but this is the one I have

u/lifeinspace · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

If I remember correctly they're these ones in "Reflex Blue" but I could be wrong! I remembered seeing a thread a few days back and still had the amazon link in my history :)

u/prepping4zombies · 2 pointsr/Meditation

This cushion works well - I've used it for years. There is also a simple solution that I advise people of - sit in a comfortable position, but with your back against a wall! Or, a nice straight-back chair.

u/11DBHK · 2 pointsr/Mahjong

Sorry for the late answers, was away and didn't check reddit.

Okay, mats: they are called "junk" mats.

Two kinds: mat between two borders that you roll out and then put the other two edges on, and 4-puzzle-piece mat.

roll pro: nice and flat

roll con: will eventually 'stretch out'.

puzzle pro: cheap and cheap to ship

puzzle con: eventually gets fray-y on the piece edges.



I definitely suggest the roll. just don't lift it with tiles on it.

u/kawarazu · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Mmhm, like a cheapo folding table. The kind your parents would bring camping. The lip would be at most an inch. The idea is that with that lip, you could rack tiles, dice won't fly out, etc.

Size of the table itself should be big enough that it should fit a junk mat, since that would be exactly what the table is replacing.

u/mac_xiii · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

I tried felt prior to shelling out the cash for an official playmat. I thought it would work out well but in practice the small fibers of the felt kept grabbing the ship's bases when I tried to move them which then jerked the whole mat and shook everything around. Also it didn't like to sit flat without a good deal of effort. Ultimately I had to be very cautious in making any movements which slowed down the game and detracted from the experience.

Maybe a higher quality felt would work better, but I would not recommend it. I've seen this recommended around here before, you can cut out two playmats and get a nice grippy mats with enough space for epic play as well

u/GremioIsDead · 2 pointsr/boardgames

Yoga mat. Available everywhere yoga mats are sold. They make them up to 6' x 6', just be prepared to spend a lot.

EDIT: OK, they're not even that much.

u/6foot8yoga · 2 pointsr/yoga

I think this is what I use I can't remember but it was cheap and from Amazon

YogaAccessories (TM) Extra Wide / Extra Long 1/4'' Deluxe Yoga Mat

I then put a Yoga Rat Towel on top. The towel is long enough and the width is good. The width doesn't cover the entire XL mat so if you want to move a foot to the rubber for whatever reason you can very easily.

THE XL YOGA TOWEL for XL yoga mats: 100% Microfiber, super-absorbent, enhances grip and protects your mat. Many colors to choose from. 26" x 85"

I'm not sure if I understood correctly, but Junk mat is awesome. I play almost all my games on it, and on tournaments everyone who brings a set seems to have it.

u/Teholive · 2 pointsr/yoga

Gaiam Athletic Yoga Series dynaMAT Xtra-Large Mat, Black/Gray, 5mm

That's the one I use, I'm 6' 3" its decent enough, gets a little slippery if you sweat a ton. For the price it's hard to beat for a beginner.

u/JonTheJedi · 2 pointsr/StarWarsArmada

The Yoga Mat on Amazon is a great cheap alternative for $30. It's EXACTLY 3x6 and what's great is the material is super non-slip. So nudging is limited.

Hope this helps!!

u/flKV02PfSQ · 2 pointsr/CCW

T-shirts are fine, they're all I wear. You just have to get the holster oriented correctly so that it's not pressing outward against the t-shirt, and is instead softly pressing into you so that the shirt drapes over it inconspicuously. I can't see what's going on under the shirt in those pictures, but it looks like there are two "hot spots" where the gun is printing—one at the base of the grip, and one at the rear of the slide. I have two recommendations:

First, the Vedder Light Tuck is available with and without a "claw" attachment. Again, I can't see under the shirt, but I'm guessing because of the way the base of the grip is poking out that you aren't using the claw. They sell them as an add-on kit for 9 bucks (, so I think it's worth it to check that box.

The bigger problem, though, is that it looks like the whole gun is allowed to tilt outboard; if you look under that shirt, I bet you'll see that whereas the muzzle end of the gun is touching you, there's a gap between your belly and the top of the gun, or at least there's more pressure against you at the muzzle end than at the top. That's the opposite of what you want for concealment purposes—the more the gun tilts out at the top, the more it presses outward on your shirt and looks obvious.

Since you're a leaner guy, you might find that the wedge kit sold by JM Custom Kydex ( is the right size for tilting things back in a good direction.

I'm heavier than you and found that I needed a different solution with more material than that, so "the yoga block mod" ( that Scott Jedlinski advocates was necessary. The idea is that you get a big block of foam (any relatively dense foam will do but here's a link: and sculpt it down until it fits the shape of your body and orients the gun perfectly for concealment. It's a touch more work, but it obviously tends to yield better results because it's a completely custom solution that you build for your exact body, sort of like tailoring your clothing.

I bought these I'm 2017 and they're my favorite pair I own. The pockets are super deep and the material is very thick and stretchy.

u/brenthenson · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I've converted all my board game group to Yoga Mats.

They are amazing play surfaces as they stop things from sliding around and have enough cushion that it makes it easier to pick up sleeved cards or cardboard pieces.

The only downside is that it really stops things from sliding, so any game that has a refillable market that requires you to slide cards down before refilling is a bit annoying.

So in that case I put down a playmat down for the market area on top of the yoga mat. (Such as Century Spice Road).

Like I said, the mat im using now is too stretchy, has no grip, so it moves a lot when I'm trying to do certain excersies.

This is it.

u/Aanar · 2 pointsr/XWingTMG

Nice work!

Just throwing in another option for anyone reading this thread: An extra wide yoga mat can work too.

Pros: Can get an epic size mat w/o a seam (or 2 3x3 mats out of it). It has a better grip than the offical mats. Pretty cheap if you find a buddy to split one with you.

Cons: Kind of bulky to haul around with you. It's a bit soft, spongy, and bumpy. Not sure how well stars painted on it will stick.

u/Hamletpiano · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I bought a couple different ones, but they're essentially all the same. I think this is the bestselling one on Amazon:

I've never tried Lululemon or other $$$ leggings though, just VS sports and other similarly priced leggings. They do give cameltoe since there's a seam down the middle, but I always wear longer sweaters/tunics/workout shirts with them anyway.

u/internet_observer · 2 pointsr/Aerials

I generally get the "reflex by 90 degrees" tights off Amazon. They are like $10/pair and great There are two different kinds, one comes in patterns the other is solid colors, slight more expensive but breathes a little better. I get my leotards from discountdance and Gkelite. The discount dance ones are cheaper but slightly thicker material. The gkelite ones fit me a little better, breathe better and don't cause leotard butt but are more expensive and slightly thinner material.

Pinched nerves, migraines, blah blah. You mess with a spine, there are going to be issues. Don't be like me and wait 12 years to get serious about doing something about it, is my best advice! And do NOT stop doing what works for you just because you get better (she says to herself...)!

Ok, try not to laugh TOO hard at my incredibly artful drawings! Here is the yoga/stretching program that I do daily. This is the very basic start of it. As these became easier I upped the time held, how far I reached, added new positions, etc. I also included the little hand strengthening set I just got from Amazon. Nerve damage can be a sneaky little bastard, and hand weakness can sneak up on you. Dropping reins sucks. If it's an issue, might be something to consider. I'm also using it to get better at my piano playing. Also sharing the Amazon links to my favorite (and cheap) yoga mat and assistance/stretch strap. :)

u/ocinn · 1 pointr/audiophile

That's super cool you got them for free and fixed them.

I hate to say this, because they don't do anything for isolation, and I don't agree with the guy who came up with the technique, but, you can use yoga blocks to get them to ear level. I would put sorbothane hemispheres under the speakers, where the yoga blocks touch.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis and all the complications it's causing for you.

I have it too, although my spike don't go quite as high. I wanted to suggest compression leggings. Socks are good, leggings are better. I noticed an improvement immediately. I bought these on Amazon, they're thin enough to wear under jeans, so I'm sure you could wear them under scrubs:

Not sure if you're a man or woman OP, but I'm sure there's a men's option as well.

Could you switch to PT that's something to do with say hands or arms? So you could be seated? Or would that be more like occupational therapy?

Wishing you the best of luck!

u/Azurphax · 1 pointr/StarWarsArmada

The bespin one from FFG is the best but its always out of stock.

If you get ffg mats be careful to not store them up and down but side to side or else you get this weird egg crate texture.

If you're not going the two 3x3 mats from ffg style, which should cost you ~$40 each, I suggest the yoga mat style. Remember you'll actually need it to be slightly larger than 6'x3'... ideally you get one that's more like 6'x4' so you can fit cards and such on the edges, but those can get costly and it's not totally needed. The deal to beat is this 6'x3' yoga mat for ~$25 shipping included. You can get slightly cheaper on amazon for the same looking thing but not black.

u/wolfanotaku · 1 pointr/Mahjong

That's what a junk mat is. A plastic ridge fitted onto a mat so that you can make a table lip with a nice padded surface for playing on. When you buy one it comes with both.

Also, they sell specific tables with the lip built in. You can find both on Amazon.

Edit: Here's the link to Amazon:

u/JoshHinderShit · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

I appreciate the advice. I'll definitely make sure to do that and play around with positioning. I completely forgot about needing speaker stands. I have a pair of wooden TV trays like this-

And I can also afford to buy a pair of Yoga blocks like these to place underneath the speakers-

I can also get this stuff and place it at the bottom of both speakers-

I know it's not ideal, but with all of that do you think it will work just fine? Or is there a better solution with different materials you would recommend? Maybe placing something underneath the tray?

I saw this reviewer from NO Audiophile used a lot of miscellaneous materials to raise his speakers-

So maybe it's not so bad?

Anyone know where I can buy a mahjong junk mat in sg? similar to this?

u/identicalParticle · 1 pointr/yoga

> Am I doing something wrong?

Might as well double check for the obvious even though you're probably not doing this. Are you using the towel to wipe your hands, and then putting your hands back on the mat? It's probably a better to put the towel on the mat, and then your hands on top of the towel.

> I have tried different towels for traction and have had no luck.

I also have sweaty hands, but literally any towel works for me. I typically use two facecloth sized towels, one for each hand, because this is what my gym has available everywhere. What do you mean that you had no luck? Are you slipping on the towel? Is the towel slipping off the mat? Is the towel wrinkling up?

I'm also interested in the answers here. I didn't know yoga gloves were a thing! There are also different things you can rub on your hands, like rosin:

I don't know if this product or brand is any good, I've just heard people talking about rosin and thought I'd mention it and attach the first link I found.

I'm curious if this is the same rosin as people put on violin bows, or if it's just a common word.

I use something similar to these (the ones I have are branded arctic chill ones, but I got them years ago when they were only $5 a pop, they seem to have gone up in price now) when it's super warm outside (in addition to a boonie hat):


This is a fast drying towel you wrap around your neck-- keep a bunch in a cooler soaked in cold water, then take them out one at a time and then wrap them around your neck. The fast evaporation of the water will cool you down a bit

As far as hats go, this one's a little pricey but so far it's been my favorite:

I asked a similar question for a garage floor. Stable mats came up as a general purpose flooring option. I have these 6ftx6ft yoga mats:

Thin and can be folded up to an extent. Won't slide but I'd rather have a different surface to pivot on.

While my manduka is starting to break in, I've been using this since I got it, and it works like a charm for keeping me steady in my practice.

Let's see. For neuroscience you could start with one of these guys:
You could go with the neuron, or possibly any of the microbes if she's worked with them in her research.

For yoga: she probably already has a nice mat. But if she's into hot yoga or power yoga that can get really sweaty. They make nice microfiber towels for mopping up the sweat, and little bags of rosin to help with the slipping that can happen from that.

If she's a reader there are some interesting books on the science behind yoga and how it affects your brain and body.

I think I'm out of ideas now. Hope this helps!

I got this one for a couple of bucks less. It's good quality and very thick. It ended up being too thick for me so I got a different one.

I think it's just a weird request, which is why it was difficult to get an answer. Most people don't put subwoofers on their desk, so size never really matters. Since size never really matters, subwoofers aren't exactly small. The LS50 doesn't have a ton of bass because if it tried, it will distort everything else. The homepod, on the other hand, boosts the bass and just skimps out on the midrange. The LS50 tries to sound more natural.

Anyways, you're going to run into some other problems with the sub on your desk. It will most likely vibrate everything on there. You want to make sure that this doesn't happen. First, get some rubber feet for the bottom of the subwoofer. Under that, go to your local Home Depot or Lowes or whatever, and get a slab of marble. A thicc one, that doesn't make any sound when you hit it with your knuckles. Put that under the subwoofer. Under that, you'll want some foam so the marble doesn't rattle against the table. Get some foam like this. You can cut it in half if it'll be too tall. Put that under the marble, and you'll be good. This all sounds like a lot, but trust me. Having a subwoofer on a desk is going to cause a lot of vibrations.

I also forgot about the Sunfire HRS-8. It is a 10" cube, which hopefully could fit on your desk. The REL is 8.5w x 9.5h x 10.5d inches, which would probably fit on your desk easier, but I'll throw in the Sunfire just in case.

Oh! Yoga mat!

For yogaing. All the yogiest yogaing.

Edit: I decided I need to add an explanation. More because I want to. I go to the gym three days a week. I run and do the weight machines. On my off days I don't end up with a lot I can do, I have a yoga dvd I've been trying to do but the carpet in my apartment is so thin! When I end up on the floor my hip bones dig into the concrete. It hurts enough to keep me from doing yoga anymore.

I usually just buy these Foam Blocks for my headphones. Depending on what headphones they can fit perfectly and dent instead of wrecking the headphones.

I have a different model of Baleaf and I love them too, I need more pairs! Feel like the sizing was true to the chart.

Best surface, no-slip. Cut it in half for 2 or keep it big for epic.

I bought a 48"x72" black yoga mat. The bases grip the surface beautifully. I used a white paint marker I bought from Michaels to make stars on it. Here's a link to what I have. I'm using mobile so not sure if it will work.

I hate how low my center console is, but I bought one of these to fix it.

Whatever you buy, don't waste your money on expensive isolation stands. Buy Yoga Blocks at Amazon instead. They don't cost much and do a great job of isolating speaker vibration. Read the product reviews on the Amazon page -- a few people mentioned speaker isolation.

Cheap (0,30 bucks), but effective.

This is my second stand for my m40x after the boom of threads showing the luxurious or pretty damn cheap headphone stand as part of a meme in this community.
I want to imply that it not nessesary to have one of these but you can also look for other options like zeos with his yoga blocks and stay cool without deform the headphone's shape.
