I was hesitant to buy these because it said it mimicked the functional anatomy. Having more functional anatomy training than most, and 3 masters degrees, I was skeptical. When I thoroughly examined the material, I realized that the fibers of the thicker parts run perpendicular to the muscle fibers of those areas (Vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, and rectus femoris), and even along the Iliotibial band the fibers run perpendicular. When athletes, or everyday people, spend time preparing for training, and competition, it's becoming the norm to SMR or foam roll. These leggings, apply the same concept due to the fiber directions. By releasing the tension on the myofascia of the muscle spindles, you take the soreness away, and increase range of motion and ability to perform. These leggings actually help keep that concept in action. The thickness in the leggings help keep that perpendicular contact against the myofascia of the muscle spindles, and apply a functional application in performance. GENIUS!
In addition to this functional application, the leggings feel amazing, and keep the warmth you need while performing. To me, these leggings are a concept, therapy, and performance enhancer. I believe the only thing UA can do to completely blow the market away is add infared. With the infared, you would be adding an additional therapeutic property and these leggings would be worth more than their weight in gold.
I am 5'10" 200 lbs and ordered a MD.
Compare with other UA leggings, this one is extremely comfortable, good fit. Love to wear them in gym.
I like how the core leggings give you a locked in feel with the stitching style used, the x-band. The fit is great and there is no chaffing, binding, or pinching. Doesn't hold in sweat and it's very breathable allowing you to cool off and dry fast. When I was playing basketball the thicker material for the 'x' design doubled as a place to dry my hands.
Price not so great
