Your Contour Shapewear: Upgrading performance with Compression Garments

Stretch! Bend! Sweat!

Let’s face it, it is disheartening when, after all the stretching, bending and sweating the result you see is unsatisfactory. Maybe, it is time to get help from a friend, the compression garment. So, what are compression garments? According to scienceforsports.com, “compression garments are tight, compressive forms of clothing, often made out of elastin and nylon, which are designed to enhance recovery”. In addition to that, experts say it could also enhance the performance of athletes and fitness aficionados. Socks, legs, sleeves and tights are just a few examples of compression garments. Often people undergoing body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks use compression garments, but nowadays they are becoming a ‘gym buddy’.

Here are five benefits of compression garments:

1. Better performance :

Muscle oxygenation is crucial when exercising. Fortunately, the heart and the blood get the job done. According to experts, using compression garments while exercising accelerates the oxygenation process. The faster the blood moves; the quicker for the muscle to receive oxygen and nutrients. Consequently, once muscles are oxygenated, the body performs up to par and for a longer period.

2. Improves recovery :

According to Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist Dr. Ian Gillam, using compression garment is the closest to getting an iced bath. Gillam says, “There’s no doubt that it (compression garment) improves recovery for athletes and anybody that exercises intensely will get the same benefits because if they’re working really hard then it’s going to help them improve their recovery”. If it helps, why not try it, right?

3. Extra support :

When exercising, one cannot avoid moving vigorously. Unfortunately, excessive movement causes muscle pains or injuries. Ergo, wearing a compression garment is the answer. It compresses or tightens the muscles, thus stabilizing them. Performance gets boosted to a new level and muscle toning or building is also achieved faster.

4. Go for Cooler:

Compression garments are breathable garments due to its unique pattern as well as the materials used – nylon and spandex. The unique pattern minimizes moisture (sweat) from sticking to the body, making the garment lighter. All in all, this garment is far more superior to cotton made sports attire.

5. Lesser pain :

In doing exercise routines, pain is the name of the game. Some folks tend to give up on account of body aches. Compression garments like tights can help ease post-exercise aches. Exercise scientist Jessica Hills says, “When compression garments are worn during and after heavy exercise, they appear to reduce muscle soreness”. Furthermore, according to studies, compression garments can expedite the recovery time from muscle soreness. Keep in mind, the garment will only help ease the pain; muscle aches are always felt when the body moves a great deal.

Sometimes, improving the contour is a challenge. One needs discipline, determination as well as patience. For some, it’s a long and rocky path. Never give up! Remember what they say – no pain, no gain! Use effective tools – like compression garments – to achieve the dream.

Your Contour: Body Toning 101

Your Contour shapping 101 blog

Jennifer Lopez … David Beckham … Miranda Kerr … Bradley Cooper …

Aside from fame, what’s the common denominator of these stars? It boils down to two words – TONED BODIES! According to bodybuilding.com, one has a ‘toned’ body if it is firm with muscular definition and shape. Well, these guys have IT and they look great at any angle!

So, you want to have that ‘perfect’ contour too? Go for it! Keep in mind, these stars were NOT born with toned bodies, they worked hard to get in shape. And, if they can do it, we all can too!
So, let’s start from the top, shall we? Here are some ideas.

1. DIET

Obviously, eating the right food is on top of the list. There are many diet plans one can choose from these days. Some would try the low-carb diet or the low-fat diet, while others would go for vegetarian diets. We won’t recommend a specific method because there is no such thing as a ‘one-size fits all’ diet plan. It is best to go to medical doctors and ask them. Diet plan recommendations from doctors are safer because they study the medical condition of patients. Finally, when it comes to food, TV Chef /Author Julia Child has the best advice “Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health.”

2. EXERCISE

If you want to get that toned or sculpted body the natural way, then you don’t have a choice but to exercise. Here are some simple reminders:
• If you are not sure how to start, ask for some help. You can research credible websites or talk to gym trainers in your community.
• The fastest way to get that toned body is to sign up in a gym. Simply because they have the machines to ‘sculpt’ every each of your body. Of course, you can do the simple exercises like deep squats or swan dives at home too.

• If possible, invest in some exercise materials. Purchase 3-5 pound dumbbells, exercise mat, comfortable shoes and some exercise clothes.
• To make things fun, why not invite a friend to become your exercise/gym buddy? Time will move faster and, maybe, because of the friendly chats you won’t notice the ‘pain’!
• Exercise can give you more than a muscular shape. Bear in mind these words of Nelson Mandela, “I have always believed that exercise is the key not only to physical health, but to peace of mind as well.”

3. SURGERY

Sometimes, dieting and exercising isn’t enough to get that perfect ‘toned’ body. Body contouring surgery is another option to finally get rid of the excess fat and skin. There’s liposuction, Pec implants, tummy tuck, and body lift surgery. Clearly, good physical health is a must from candidates of surgeries.

4. SHAPEWEAR

You have done the dieting and the exercising, but the excess skin or fat still makes you conscious. So, what now? Well, if surgery is not an option, then go for the easy and safe one – use Shapewear garments! Don’t worry, Hollywood stars also use them. Shapewear products easily hides ‘excess stuff’ like flabby arms, love handles, back fat and muffin tops in a matter of seconds. And, best of all, there are Shapewear products for both women AND men!

Remember, ‘toned’ bodies are not just for the rich and famous. We all can look great! Get going! The faster you start, the faster to flaunt your contour!

Your Contour: Three Reasons Why Men Should Use Shapewear

Your Contour Men Shapewear Blog
Shapewear for men?! Well, why not?

Today, the word “sexy” is used to describe both genders. Moreover, some would define sexy as acquiring hourglass shaped bodies and six-pack Abs. Perhaps that’s why many women swoon over the ‘yummylicous’ contour of Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds and David Beckham. They look so hunky, right?
On the other hand, what if it is just an ‘ordinary’ guy? That would mean a guy with some love handles or belly fat or maybe some flabby arms too? Truth be told, but some women don’t give these guys a second glance.

What’s the solution? A few would go to the extremes and go under the knife just to get the six-pack they are dreaming of. Some would be more health conscious, meaning they would go on a strict diet and exercise to look fit. Obviously, the second choice is better.

However, what if after the ‘transformation’ some flabs are still obvious? Well, that is when men have to ‘tuck it in’ using some Shapewear products!
To convince men to use it, here are some benefits:

1. Great shape in a second!

Putting on a Shapewear, like the Slimming Undershirt Body Shaper, will make flabs ‘disappear’. Thanks to the dual layer technology of this product, the chest, hip, back and stomach area will look ‘tucked in’! You will look slimmer and more athletic-looking in no time! No need to hold your breath just to get the flat tummy look. Just put the shaper on and do whatever you need to do.

2. Man Boobs,

be gone! According to the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, fifty percent of American men face the condition called gynecomastia or man boobs. To ‘solve’ the problem, some men will get medical treatments or may just altogether avoid using fitted shirts. Moreover, there are guys who would tape their ‘boobs’ to look more flat. According to experts, the condition is not harmful physically, but it can really cause low self-esteem. If the condition is a mild one, proper diet and daily exercise are the best solutions. In addition, while getting rid of man boobs, using a body shaper will help boost self- confidence.

3. Use it for any occasion!

Shapewear products are not just for special occasions like dates or big formal events. Looking good is achievable any time! For instance, use an Arm Shapewear Compression every day to make flabby arms ‘disappear’. You will get shapely arms to boost your self-esteem while flexing those muscles!

Remember, it is now widely accepted for men to use shapewear products.

They are not only for women.

According to makemeheal.com, even 52-year-old Brad Pitt is rumored to be using shapewear garment to ‘tuck in’ his midsection. Don’t hate your body when you know you can do something about it. Get rid of love handles or belly fat or flabby arms the easiest, safest and fastest way. Grab the right shapewear garment and look breathtaking always!
