So, anyhow, that's not why you're here. You're here for that magic "g" word up there in the title. But first, all the reasons why you want to win the product that's being given away. And that product is?
What are they, and how do they work, you ask?
"Aspaeris Pivot Shorts are designed to maintain proper position during repetitive motion. They help adjust your legs and hips to avoid injury. [They] lead to proper joint "loading," to help you improve performance and avoid injury."Now, I'm a newbie to compression wear, so I have nothing to compare these to. I can only speak highly of the way fit, feel, and of their magical compressing powers.
(For more information, visit their website.)
I first wore them after a long Saturday run for recovery purposes. Because I'm a little slow sometimes, I tried to put them on after lotioning up after a shower. Don't do that. When they say "compression," they mean they're tight. Adding lotion to the mix will only make you work harder to put them on, and that's the opposite of recovering.
(It made me think of this FRIENDS episode)
I wore them a couple of hours after the run, and then during that night while I slept. I really enjoy the compressing powers of these suckers. It's like they've finally developed a way to give your butt and thighs a warm, comforting hug. I did get a mark on my thigh where the bottom of them indented my skin, but I chalk that up to the fact that my thighs were really meant for someone much larger than me.
As for wearing them on a run?
Ahh-mazing! Not only do they feel like they hold everything in (or "compress", if you will), but I definitely felt more stable, like I was running with better form. I officially want about five pairs so that I can wear them on every run! Believe me, you want a pair.
