I will be honest. I have spent a ton of time inside on the treadmill. It's seriously so much easier for me to not worry about the kids schedules, less daylight, and cold. I can just put on a tank, grab a towel, and bring my phone downstairs to enjoy some Netflix loving time and to bang out some miles on my treadmill.
Sunday morning I woke up so sore! My legs were saying no more! But I had 10 miles to get done. Then I remembered my 12 miler last weekend and I had similar feelings. I wore my SKINS K-PROPRIUM tights last week and they were amazing. I had only planned on 10 miles, but just kept going. 12 miles later, I still felt pretty good. After I showered and got into my daily routines, I noticed that I did not feel like I had run 12 miles. So, I thought, let's try out those SKINS compression tights again.
SKINS tights. But I did, and now there's no going back!
I have had the opportunity to try out the K-PROPRIUM compression tights for the past few weeks and lucky you, SKINS' is launching K-PROPRIUM compression tights for men and women this February.
SKINS' K-PROPRIUM combines the best dynamic gradient compression with strategically placed Proprioceptive Power Bands (PPB's) to fight fatigue and reduce the risk of injury and improve performance by enhancing proprioception.
But wait! I know what fatigue is. My legs feel it almost every time I bust out a tough workout or a long run. I definitely know what injuries are. I've had far too many. But seriously, what the heck is proprioception? Thankfully, the people at SKINS have defined this for us.
"Proprioception is the unconscious perception of motion and spatial awareness.
It's the body's ability to sense movement in the joints, so you're aware of where
your limbs are without having to look. It's important to everyday activities like
standing and walking, but it's even more important during physical activity where
dynamic movements and co-ordination are vital for optimal performance. When
you're active for long periods of time, the body's ability to perform at a sustained
intensity drops as the muscles become fatigued. This reduces the joint support that
controls normal motion effectively and can lead to poor form and increased risk of
injury." - from SKINS'
So basically, what I'm telling you is the SKINS' merged two amazing compression methods into one pair of tights to bring us tights that will help improve performance when your legs are fatiguing and will help you persevere through that tough workout.
But all of this doesn't really matter unless you try them our or know of someone who has tried them out. I had the opportunity to try out a pair for the past few weeks. After several workouts in them, I can assure you that they feel amazing on my legs and have definitely made a few workouts much better.
And with my new SKINS K-PROPIUM tights, I'm also joining in on the #pistolsquat challenge. Right now, day 1. I'm not so good. But given time, patience, and lots of practice - I'm going to master the pistol squat. That's what determination is about! I think you should join me on instagram!
disclosure: I received a pair of SKINS K-PROPIUM tights to try out. I was not required to post a positive review. As always, all opinions expressed on my blog are 100% my own.
