All of the products had been calling my name from the shelves dedicated to my male grooming products for some time but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that I decided that now was the time to try them - after all I had been eating a bit more healthily, had been off the demon drink for weeks (for the first time in twenty years) and had been increasing my levels of activity from zero to brisk walks and a few sit-ups (the gym is a bridge too far at the moment).
Needless to say I'm not ripped, but the lack of alcohol and mild exercise has resulted in the loss of any kind of beer belly and love handles, my biceps and abs are more defined and I want to keep them that way!
The four products in the range are available from the Nip + Man website here.
So what are the products (descriptions taken directly from the Nip + Man website) and are they worth investing in?

Well, what is there to say, the Ab, Pec and Bicep gels have a fairly neutral fragrance, it's fresh on the nose and seems to have a faint floral aroma. Don't worry lads, it is so faint you would struggle to smell it and as soon as it is dried in you can hardly nose it when trying to - so no chance of being dubbed the office bouquet after a work out and using this.
I found the toners really useful - while it would take a Genie and three wishes to create the body I want, the gels did have a positive impact on how my skin felt and looked. Once the gel had dried in the skin was felt much more hydrated, it had a spring to it when pushed in and felt soft to the touch. Not bad.
The Pec toner however had some weird and welcome results. After showering and drying off properly I massaged the gel into my pecs and let it soak in. After about ten minutes my chest started to tingle (not in a bad way) and I could feel the skin getting tighter! Wow....It did firm up my pecs for a couple of hours.
So amazed by the results of the Pec Fix I mentioned it to a friend who renamed it "T*t toner" (it's more a reflection on the company I keep).
While I may not be running any marathons lately (or ever) I do have to cart around biker boots on feet that weigh about 6 lbs each. A long walk and I really feel it in my calf and thigh muscles - it's a pain. In the past my thighs cramp or I ache in my lower leg. After a night on my feet I have found that using the Power Workout Fix eases the stiffness and aching. It is like a roll on deodorant but instead it dispenses a warming gel that is absorbed immediately. This stuff has become priceless to me!
Once I get my carcass back to the gym these four products are going to become invaluable to me. Using them won't leave you with washboard abs or biceps as big as my waist, but they do work wonders on the skin, they do sculpt and tone as promised.
All that is left to do is flex my bicep, kiss the muscle and mutter under my breath (in a slow, deep Lancastrian accent), “welcome.....to.....the.....gun show”.
