What makes WodWax antibacterial?
WodWax was created with a proprietary blend of essential oils, all selected because of their antibacterial and healing properties. Lavender Oil was selected for its use as a great deodorizer and disinfectant. Tea Tree Oil and Clove Oil both have strong anti-fungal properties, making them obvious additions to the blend. Finally, Oregano Oil, with its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-microbial, and antiseptic properties, rounds out the blend of oils chosen.
How do you remove WodWax from the bar?
It's simple. Use a thick plastic card, or something like it, to scrape off WodWax from the bar.
Will WodWax come off on my hands?
No. Any wax applied to the bar will stay on the bar. There may be a slight residue or scent from the essential oils.
How long does a bar of WodWax last?
One bar of WodWax is expected to last one to two months, or more. This assumes one initial application and subsequent applications of about 3 times per week.
How often do I need to reapply WodWax?
Once a base is established, reapply before every bar-intensive workout.
Can I use chalk with WodWax?
Yes. When WodWax is initially applied to the bar, the bar should be clean and chalk-free. Once Wod Wax has been applied, you may use chalk on your hands. The use of chalk will not impact the performance of WodWax.
How much do I need to apply?
With the initial application of Wod Wax, you should begin to see small bumps of wax begin to build up. Subsequent applications should be a lighter coat to refresh the feel of the initial application. See How to Use page for more detailed instructions.
If I use WodWax regularly, will it be difficult for me to use a pull up bar that doesn't have WodWax on it?
No. You should actually see improvement over time from how you used to perform on a non-waxed bar. Training with WodWax allows you to do more work on the bar, improving strength and allowing for a higher work capacity when not using WodWax.
