CW-X Men’s Pro Shorts have been a staple in most runners’ closets, as they are extremely well made, durable, and they simply get the job done!  It is hard to believe that they retail for only $80.00 USD.  CW-X Pro Shorts feature patented conditioning wear support, which acts as a taping mechanism to support major muscle groups.  CW-X Pro Shorts support the leg muscles, and also the lower back and hips.  You won’t find shorts like this at Target or Walmart!  They are also great for hiking and all outdoor activities.  I wear the Women’s Pro Shorts when mowing the lawn!  I have a lot of grass to cut with a push mower, and these shorts can be depended on to help reduce muscle fatigue.

I loved this article written by a marathon trail runner that outlines the benefits of compression shorts and tights from CW-X.  He said that he would never wear tights and/or compression shorts, but now he is a convert!

I had no idea there was a marathon in Antartica until today.  Wow!  As a person who will come up with any excuse not to exercise, I can’t imagine how people motivate themselves to run in a blinding snow.  I suppose that’s why they’re healthy and why I struggle!

SportsMedInfo.net Article on Kinesio Support Technology and CW-X Tights

Standard

I found this article on SportsMedInfo.net that did a quick review of the concept of Kinesio Support Web and its use in CW-X Tights.  For background information, SportsMedInfo.net is “The Sports Medicine Network of Product Reviews & Information”.  


It’s a good article because it talks about the concept of Kinesio Support Technology, and its importance in helping athletes, professional and amateur, with recovery and support.  The benefits of CW-X tights and kinesio support technology include increased endurance, shorter recovery times after exercise, and less lactic acid build-up following exercise.  The article also includes information on how to select the right style of CW-X tights for your needs.

Kinesio Support Technology

Standard

Kinesio Support Technology

The new buzzword in town is Kinesio Support Technology.  So what is it, and what does it mean?

First, I’ll explain the concept of Kinesio Taping.  Kinesio Taping is a methodology to give support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting circulation or range of motion.  It is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process.  It comes from the science of Kinesiology.  Failure of muscles to function properly causes other problems and symptoms.  It is from here that the idea of treating muscles will help jumpstart the body’s own healing process.  Kinesio Taping is now used to treat nerves, muscles and organs.  Doctors worldwide are using Kinesio Taping to treat their patients, and athletes around the world use it to improve their performance.  The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles.  It helps to reduce pain and inflammation, to support muscles, and to reduce stress caused by overuse of muscles.  It is also helpful in the recovery process.

CW-X Kinesio Support Web Technology

CW-X took the concept of Kinesio Taping and applied it to their line of performance tights, shorts and tops. The patented CW-X Kinesio Support Web technology mimics Kinesio taping techniques that trainers apply to injured muscles. When this technology is applied to muscles and joints, it creates an exoskeletal support system that improves biomechanics during motion. The Kinesio Support Web provides targeted support to key areas, decreasing muscle oscillation and focusing power so your muscles work more efficiently. Variable compression along the web facilitates circulation, minimizing lactic acid build-up and muscle soreness, so you can be active longer and recover faster.

Human Science Research Center, Kyoto, Japan: Study of Electrical Pulse Activity in Muscles

Muscles firing into motion were measured electromyographically for subjects wearing CW-X gear, subjects wearing competitor products, and subjects with bare legs. Electrical pulse activity decreased in unsupported and partly supported legs during exercise, indicative of fatigue. Legs supported by CW-X showed a negligible decrease in electrical pulse activity.

So What Does it Mean for Me?

For athletes and people engaged in strenuous sports such as running, triathlons, rowing, cycling, equestrian sports, etc., it means improved performance and quicker recovery time. Most people who use CW-X tights with the patented Kinesio Support Web note a marked improvement in performance and increased endurance, with less pain and quicker recovery.
