SKINS Activity 400: Price: GBP 59 My take: A compression tight for activity use. Getting them on takes some skill but gets easier the more you do it. They are a little tight in the crotch area, I find my balls get squished a tad bit if I do really deep squats. However I have a rather large butt so most men may not have this issue. I would say if you have a difficult time with tight jeans because of your hips and ass, you will get the same effect. Overall, I had my best workout session this year wearing these babies yesterday. I will be posting more as I use them more. SKINS Recovery 400: Price: GBP 69 A compression tight for recovery and/or long periods of sitting/inactivity. I actually looked into these originally because my job has recently given me a position that requires me to travel up to 300 days a year. Also, I live in England at the moment and will be moving to Vegas. I hate the leg restlessness and muscle fatigue that the long plane ride give me. So about the tights, they really do decrease muscle pain. I put them on right after working out and left them on for the entire work shift. I felt no muscle fatigue the entire day. When I got home I wanted to see what the difference was so I took them of and laid in bed while I talked to friends and family back in the states. 5 hours later my legs still felt good, I didn't drink enough water though so when I stretched out after lying my Thigh cramped up. These are not a replacement for water The recovery tights don't mess with my balls the same way the acvite ones can. I think this is because they active ones have a pee hole in them so they stretch in that area more. Also, while wearing both of them, if I am somewhere warm I feel like my entire lower body has gentle A/C blowing across it. In the cold, rainy England weather I feel like I am walking across low heated flooring. Like as I said, as I use them more I will post more about them. and the Workout I did, to give you an idea of the intensity, was: Every minute on the minute for 25 minutes of: 5 pull-ups 10 push-ups 15 squats I made 23 rounds without going into the next minute. Before I could only complete 20.
