Hello my friends,
How are you all? I hope you’re all well!
During the past week, I was lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely Naomi at SKINS and received a pair of SKINS DNAmic Compression 3/4 Tights and a Remote T bar tank. I was super stoked to have received a pair of SKINS, I have always heard about how good they are and have been wanting to get my hands on a pair.
Over the weekend we had some lovely weather, this felt like a good time to try out my new active wear. The husband, Snowy and I headed down the coast, just a 30 minute drive from where we live and went on a beautiful coastal walking track up along the cliffs.
I had my new SKINS on and at first I noticed that the tights were very skin tight (I guess that’s why they’re called skins), but also felt light. I don’t usually like tight or fitting clothing, but I thought I would see how they go. The T bar tank was an instant hit, as I like to have loose fitting wear.
During our walk, I was surprised with the compression tights. They felt extremely comfortable but also felt very supportive. My movement didn’t feel restricted. I did a lot of walking up and down the hills, running in parts and stretching.
This left me wondering about the compression tights and what the benefits of them are. Here are a few points that I have learnt about SKINS compression wear below;
- Increasing blood flow velocity and muscle oxygenation.
- Reducing blood lactate at submaximal intensities
- Increases power by increasing force production and lower body proprioception.
- Reduces risk of injury by reducing swelling, as defined by limb circumference
After trialling out my SKINS, I have to admit I am a huge fan! It helps that they look good too! You should always look good and feel good in your active wear!
