I don't know if this is used before, during or after exercise, but what about the Body Bugg? Has anyone here used it? I'm kind of curious to see if it's worth the money or not. I don't really know how it works.

"The beauty of the Gospel message is not that we shall not suffer, but rather that regardless of the level and intensity of our suffering, God is always there by our side, and will always give us the strength to stand and not fail. In fact I would go as far as to say that the most effective witness to the lost, is the life of a suffering Christian, that overflows with joy, peace and love, rather than bitterness and self-pity.
