So recently I tried out the Skins range for women. Skins is a range of compression training wear originally meant for professional sports men/women but amateur sportsmen can benefit from this functional training gear. Just briefly how Skins work for you during a workout;
You choose your Skins according to the size table (according to your BMI) to find the perfect size for you to reap maximum benefit out of your second skin. Skins fit very snugly to provide the correct level of surface pressure to specific parts of the body. Circulation is improved and therefore more vital oxygen gets to your working muscles giving you that extra power speed and stamina. With better circulation you generally eliminate lactic acid build up and other metabolic wastes quicker during workouts. With other words you can train for longer and recover a bit faster. Scientifically proven technology nogals!
I must say on first sight you think; “How can something this pretty be so clever right?” let me tell you don’t be deceived by this slick little black and pink number!
Obviously Skins are made to fit quite tight and when I tried them on they really did put “all my junk in the trunk” my bum seriously never have looked quite so tight even if I have to say so myself – as in seriously NO BOUNCE. I felt really pretty and comfy in them and looks wise they score quite high on my list. On the run they managed to keep me cool and dry and in the cold mornings kept me warm.
I have always struggled a bit with shin splints and they kept the calve muscle compact and close to the shin which reduced the pulling, alleviating the symptoms that never quite go away completely. This I must say, was what I loved the most about them.
With summer around the corner also nice to know that these outfits are all 50+ UV protection so no more ski-pant-tan for moa!
As mentioned before they are gorgeous and I definitely think as an all-rounder this gear is tops! I would have loved to see more variation for all days of the week but I am sure this will come soon. I am seriously in love with this brand!
