6 Ways To Get Creative With Physiclo + Instagram Contest
Last week we talked about the technology behind resistance wear and its key differences from normal compression tights. Now we're going to explore how you can get the most out of them.
Although Physiclo tights were originally intended to be used for running, biking, HIIT training and your favorite gym routines, that didn't stop our Physiclo-ers from thinking outside the box and getting creative with their use.
Here's a look at some of our favorites:
1. ROCK CLIMBING
Doing laps on the wall while sporting my @getphysiclo resistance leggings was quite the experience; my legs most definitely felt the workout! #getphysiclo #physiclo #mylegsaregonnafalloff #endurancetraining #sponsored #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #gymsends #indoorclimbing #gymclimbing #radgirlslife #lifemaaaan #leggings #rockwall #climbing #climblikeagirl #girlswhoclimb #gymday #feeltheburn #fitness ? @espectagram
This is the definition of hardcore. As if rock climbing in itself isn't challenging enough, @juliahasfun took it to the ultimate level by adding even MORE resistance through her Physiclo tights. That post-climb burn is palpable.
Is that Tim Gunn fencing with Olympic medalist Tim Morehouse? And wearing Physiclo tights?! This one would definitely be a hard workout considering the quick movements and that constant-semi-squat position (called an 'en garde' stance) fencing demands.

3. ACROBATIC FEATS
Whoa that does not look safe! @hoochoo_run took his resistance tights all the way to the Bukhansan National Park in South Korea for this cool and eye-popping picture. Don't worry it's just the camera angle, but still... do not try this at home.
Mermaid tested = Mermaid Approved •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Omg y'all I'm so excited to share that I was a tester for the 1st of it's kind resistance activewear! They have resistance bands built into the leggings ? The company is called Physiclo and Frank and the team are so supportive! Studies have already shown that just wearing the gear increases muscle activity by 23% , heart rate by 8% and calorie burn by 14%! They even tested them on the show The Doctors and found that running a mile with Physiclo burned 42% more calories than without ! How freaking awesome is that ! ?✨ So all my lovely yogis, weightlifters and runners check them out ! @getphysiclo P.S. Handstand approved ? for my inversion junkies ?? Use my code in my bio for 20% off if y'all are interested ?

4. ONE OF A KIND TREADMILL WORKOUTS
How to spice up your treadmill relationship ?? I'm doing this in my PHYSICLO pants that have compression and resistance bands built into them. Thanks @getphysiclo ?? Incline 15, speed 1.2 - rounds of 30 sec/1 min #happyfriday #fitness #fitfam #getphysiclo #getherdone #cardio #treadmill #whipitup #legday
This is how you turn a boring treadmill run into a fun and extra-challenging exercise with endless possibilities. That incline though...
5. BARRE EXERCISES
Fitness blogger Allie at vitatrain4life wore her resistance tights to a barre class and loved it! If you've never heard of it before, barre exercises are inspired by ballet moves and focus on isometric strength training. It's perfect if you're recovering from an injury or need a break from higher-intensity workouts.
I love warrior 2—such a powerful leg strengthening pose. Then try warrior in resistance leggings and holy leg workout batman! @getphysiclo #getphysiclo #warrior #warriorpose #warrior2 #virabhadrasana #resistance #resistancebands #resistancetraining #yogapose #yogaathome #yogamom #yogamama #legworkout #boyaremylegstired #beawarrior #physiclo
Who said yoga can't be a hard workout? Here's @studioartyoga doing a flawless warrior 2 pose in her resistance tights. If yoga is your preferred exercise or your current goal is to improve balance and flexibility, then integrating resistance wear is a great way to burn more calories while you're at it.
And this guy?
