I am no stranger to the SKINS products – in fact I am an avid user. I first tested the Compression A400 capris back in September and fell in love. I then purchased the DNAmic Thermal & Wind Resistant Compression leggings and DNAmic Thermal Compression long-sleeved top to face the harsh Chicago winters (holla for their amazing Black Friday sale). So when I got the opportunity to try out the new DNAmic Compression leggings and sports bra, I jumped on it.
So why may you ask am I such an avid user? I truly believe compression products help with recovery. It is said that compression products increase blood circulation & muscle oxygenation therefore reducing the build up of lactic acid after a grueling workout. Compression products can also decrease the risk of injury by reducing swelling.
Although I’m already a firm believer, I put it to the test with my DNAmic Compression leggings – running 21.7 miles, attending an hour HIIT class, and a half hour of each cycling, barre, and yoga all in one weekend. I wore the leggings through each of my workouts (don’t worry, I actually washed them this time. I wasn’t experimenting with that again) and also the Monday after. I was a tiny bit sore, I mean how could you not be after almost 7 hours of working out within 48 hours, but I was no where near as sore as one should be. I’d call that a win.
My “chill” weekend consisted of running 21.7 miles, an hour of HIIT at @ctfchicago and an hour & a half #sweatworkingcrawl to @cyclexstudio, @purebarrewestloop & @barefeetpoweryoga 🙈 so I think it’s safe to say these @skinssportswear compression leggings are 💯 necessary to speed up recovery for another grueling week ahead #bibchat #riseup #constantlyontherun #mwpro #roadtoboston #asweatlife
The last reason I’m a huge fan of SKINS is because of their customer service. When I ordered the Thermal & Wind Resistant leggings back in November, I ripped them before I even had a chance to wear them (idiot). I reached out and they exchanged them, no questions. Snaps for SKINS!
