Shortaaaaaa – Nike Training Compression Shorts are some of my fav’s to work it out in and sweat it out in.
If you have never heard of the clothing article know as the ‘compression short’ before this very moment – think new age spandex – as in new fabrics/colors/and gym clothing acceptance – defined by dictionary.com as; form-fitting garments usually worn by athletes. When worn they cover the athlete’s waist to mid or lower thigh, often made from a spandex-type material, similar to cycling shorts.
Benefits of compression shorts are that they keep the muscles warm to prevent muscle strain and fatigue, and wick sweat away from the body to prevent chafing and rashes. In addition, there is some evidence that compression shorts may enhance athletic performance, and help to keep undergarments in place, and for certain sports, like baseball and softball where they are also known as “sliding shorts”.
Being a fan of Nike training Compression Shorts there are many other companies that make a cute compression short; Under-Armor, Adidas, Lulu Lemon. You will pay a little extra, but they will last. I wear them playing volleyball, running, and for all around training. Note that these guys tend to be a little thin so if I’m feeling not so in shape Nike offers a thicker material with the same fit and shape that kind of act as Spanx.
One noteworthy blogs – 4th and Bleeker (because the styling/simplicity/and the fact that the author is the only feature) author has offered up a workout short fashion shoot. Lets face it these shorts can be defined in every sense of the word HOT.
