CW-X Stabilyx Tights Win at the 2012 Antartica Marathon — Brrrrr!!!

Standard

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!

Onto the news!  Brooke Curran won the recent 2012 Antarctica Marathon, wearing CW-X Stabilyx Tights. The conditions were very tough; 40 MPH winds, 5F wind chill factor, and blinding snow!!CW-X Women's Stabilyx Tights

An Examiner report commented, “And while most runners generally wear little more than tank tops and shorts, Curran beat out her competitors dressed in a heavy winter running top, weatherproof shell, thick tights and two pairs of gloves fitted with chemical handwarmers.” 

You can purchase CW-X Stabilyx Tights at CoolFitWear.com.  They come in two varieties for women:  CW-X Stabilyx Tights and CW-X Insulator Stabilyx Tights (for running at 40 degrees F or below).  For an extra discount, use the Coupon Code “Blog” during checkout.

Review of SLS3 Butterfly Compression Socks

I found this review from a women’s running group about the SLS3 Butterfly Compression Socks made by SLS3 in California. Yes, these are Made in the USA!

They are flattering about the socks, but also have some realistic comments. It’s an excellent review if you are still on the fence about the benefits of compression socks when running, hiking, walking or traveling.

SLS3 Intelligent Race Apparel will change the way you think about what to wear during training and competition. Scientific tests have shown that the SLS3 Compression Socks boost blood flow about 34%. This increases oxygen delivery to the working muscles to enhance their performance. The circulation improvements also help the body to eliminate metabolic wastes like lactic acid. The combination of these effects allows you to work harder and longer.

The SLS3 Butterfly Compression Socks also offer significant support to the Achilles tendon, tibia, calf and ankle. This boosts the ability to reduce common ankle and foot injuries. The supportive effect and the compression of the SLS3 Butterfly Compression Socks reduce the muscle vibration drastically, which leads to less damage of the soft tissue and less sore muscles.

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.
