    Question Liniment!

    My instructor is big into "warming" liniment before a ride and "cooling" liniment after a ride. I love liniment, and I currently use a combination of Sore-No-More, Bigiloil, & Thermaflex. My boy has some arthritis issues in his legs that need it, as well as behind his shoulder & lower back before a ride.

    My BO recommends Martex liniment as a warming liniment, but I don't feel like it does anything. However, I
    m having trouble finding a warming alternative. So I have a couple questions for all of you.

    -What warming liniments do you know of? Which do you like?
    -Which liniment do you like best & why? (warming or cooling)
    -Which liniments do you dislike & why?
    -What do you like/dislike about liniment?
    -Any other liniment questions/comments?

    Have to say I have never used, nor heard of anyone using, warming liniment. Usually one is trying to keep legs as cool as possible. I would rather use a good warmup rather than a liniment but maybe that's cause I have never been told why u would using a warming liniment

    Yeah, we have a great warmup too. And I don't use warming liniment because I don't like the kind the BO uses. I hadn't heard of it either, so I was just wondering if anyone else had.
