Holly Petrovich, runner and Editor in Chief of Chicago Athlete Magazine, shares her experience trying out her new Physiclo Pro Resistance capris:
"I ordered the cropped pair of Physiclo, so I could wear them more year-round. When I first opened them up, I was surprised at how heavy they felt, and was a little nervous to try them out. Despite having 10 pounds of resistance bands built inside, when I put the pants on, you cannot tell at all – they look just like normal tights!
I took my Physiclo’s to the gym for the first time and hopped on a stair master; instantly I could feel the difference as I took my first steps, and while I usually do about 30 minutes on the stair stepper, I could only do 20 as I was exhausted – my heart rate was definitely up, and doing squats later that day was very difficult.
I tried the pants for a second time on a run, to see if they felt any different to how they did on the stairs. My plan was to go about three miles, but again, I was forced to cut my workout short due to the additional effort required by these pants. After two and a half miles, I felt like I just did five. The next time I ran though, it did feel easier after wearing them once."
