HOW THEY WORK
ACHIEVE BETTER RESULTS
ADD 10 POUNDS OF FORCE
Physiclo generates up to ten pounds of extra resistance in any direction, including hip flexion, extension, and abduction. As with resistance bands, the bigger your movement, the more resistance you'll feel.
ACTIVATE KEY MUSCLES
Physiclo's band technology creates resistance across a full range of motion, targeting the important muscle groups of the hip and upper leg, like the hip flexors, quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, and hip adductors.
23% MORE MUSCLE ACTIVITY
Electromyography (EMG) was used to measure the effects of wearing Physiclo on muscle activity. Subjects ran on treadmills at 7-mph with electrodes placed over target muscles. When wearing Physiclo, we found 23% greater muscle activity in the hamstrings and quadriceps.
9% INCREASE IN HEART RATE
Athletes wearing Physiclo saw a significant increase in exercise intensity and average heart rate. Subjects ran on treadmills with increasing speed and incline until reaching exhaustion. Results showed an additional 9% increase in heart rate and 14% more calories burned when wearing Physiclo.
MARATHON PERFORMANCE STUDY
We conducted a pilot field study to see how training with Physiclo resistance apparel helps distance runners enhance marathon and half-marathon performance. The 10-week study tracked the daily time and distance trained for 37 runners as they prepared to compete in their next road race. We found that runners who wore Physiclo resistance apparel for a significant proportion of their training saw a significant improvement in race performance and were more likely to achieve a new personal record.
Half of the subjects were given a pair of Physiclo resistance pants to incorporate into their workouts, while the other half trained in their regular running pants. Subjects who met study entry criteria, including both men and women, were matched within one standard deviation for previous finish times, training volume, and age.
After ten weeks, the 19 runners who trained with Physiclo ran an average of 7 minutes and 53 seconds faster than their previous personal bests, a 4.2% improvement (p=0.015). On the other hand, the 18 runners in the the control group did not see a significant change in finish times, with the group's average being 3 minutes and 43 seconds slower than their previous bests, a decrease of 1.5% (p=0.23).
