2013 Workout with Dexcom
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Make 2013 the best and healthiest year you can!
With New Year resolutions upon us, I thought I would write a quick post about carrying around some equipment while working out. I typically don't use the arm band for crossfit, but works really well for running or biking. The Dexcom 7, "the egg" will fit okay in my phone arm band, but looks forward to the new G4 that should fit much better.
In the crossfit photo below (left), you can see my Dexcom leaning up against the wall in the bottom left corner. I was doing burpees in the photo, so it gets in the way in your pocket. Also, something else to think about is sensor placement because it is pretty difficult to do burpees when my sensor is on my stomach. At this point, I was actually wearing it on my my lower back/side. However, lower back/side or stomach are both difficult spots if you are going to use a weight belt. Those are the only places I have tried, but would love to hear how other wear theirs?

Try your upper thigh, even if there's not a lot of "extra padding" it works ok and it's nice to have it away from the midsection (which includes stomach and lovehandles)! I find that they don't last as long in my legs, but it's nice for a little break (until it bugs me b/c I can't wear tight pants- but you probably don't have that problem!) Good luck!
