Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves


i know this is one product where you are in one of two camps either you swear by them and think they are the greatest thing in the world or you cant stand them and think they dont do anything.

I am in the camp of thinking they are the greatest thing in the world. i am still what would be called a beginner runner so i still have a lot of calf cramping and shin splints issues so after a little research i figured it wouldn’t hurt to give compression sleeves a try. the zensha sleeves are light weight and breath very and even when your getting deep in the much they stay in place and dry off fast as well unlike some other sleeves that feel more like a wet suite material. when you start to run and you feel the tightness in your calf starting you will feel these get a bit snug and stop the cramping from getting worse and within a min or two your legs will start to de cramp and feel refreshed and help you to keep pushing at the gym or at your run. post workout you will notice a benefit of a quicker recovery time and your legs feeling fresher. one more benefit to wearing the sleeves is that your legs will have that much more protection from that all dreaded dash rash.

Hyperwear Vest SXY

I received a Hyperwear Vest SXY for Christmas 2012. This is a review of the product.

First off it’s a very nice vest. It fits well, and can be adjusted with corset-like lacing on the sides. This makes the vest very comfortable for running, walking, hiking or working out in. It really is designed to fit a woman, smaller shoulder straps, understanding of a woman’s chest and waist areas. It comes in a couple of colors – I have the red, shown here:

One con to the vest (and several of the Hyperwear vests) is the belief that a small woman can’t carry larger weights. This vest goes to 8lbs. I’ve managed to squeeze two more pounds in there but the weight vest is seriously maxed out.  I really wish there was a way to increase the amount of weight that could be carried in here. It would definitely make the vest have a longer useful life.

I really do like this vest however, and would recommend it.
