Alright ladies, this one is for the men! In 2007, a 40-year old man had a bold ambition – to feel and look ten years younger so as to perform better in his daily life. As an intensely stressed businessman, ex-sportsman and regular golfer, he worked hard and played hard, but was starting to see the effects of time – including back pain, muscle soreness, fatigue and loss in muscle tone. After frequent visits to the physiotherapist and trainer he thought: why can’t there be something that helps me with these issues every day?
Inspiration came from the sport category – specifically, the new compression garments designed for elite athletes.
Technically advanced compression garments had been developed to help athletes perform at their peak. Such garments were scientifically designed to increase blood flow to and from the muscles in order to improve performance, reduce the risk of injury, and accelerate muscle recovery.
Just as in sport, modern men are subject to physical wear and tear – except on an everyday basis.
EQUMEN™ found that by incorporating athletic technologies into undergarments that could be worn under a business suit, casual wear or for sport, the average guy could benefit from such engineering.
I was recently sent a core-precision v-neck undershirt, precision underwear trunks and a pair of precision socks to review. My husband is a world champion, drug-free USAPL Powerlifter. Please don’t confuse this with body builder. Powerlifters need to bench, squat and dead lift in competition to achieve the highest weight total for their division. My husband has been competing for many years and is a world and national champion. Now, we are familiar with some of the gear that these lifters wear, like bench shirts and squat suits that are so tight they often need 2 other guys to help them get them on. So when I told him about this precision underwear, he was very interested in trying them out. When I took the undershirt out of the box, it looked so tiny, that I laughed. To say these garments have a lot of stretch is a understatement.
Developed in conjunction with physiotherapists, ergonomic consultants and athletic garment engineers, EQUMEN™ HELIX-MAPPING™ is a unique body-mapping system that builds physio taping techniques into every garment to reinforce and support the body’s natural structure from the core. Crisscrossing the upper and lower back, compression on the shirt gently pulls the shoulders back to support an upright posture.
The HELIX-MAPPING™ system is built-in using seamless manufacturing technology. This allows for a more comfortable, better fitting garment that will adjust to your unique body shape without rubbing or chafing.
He was very impressed with the way the shirt felt. He could see wearing it under clothing and it was comfortable but very supportive in the core area and enhanced good posture. You can see and feel the quality of this undershirt which comes in three styles, the singlet, the v neck and the long sleeve.
The trunks work with the same principle and have areas of compression for the gluteal, quadriceps, and hamstrings while also providing ventilation. He liked these trunks very much, as they were comfortable, even though they were supportive. He really liked the socks because they have a nice uniform precise fit that really felt good. These precision undergarments have many benefits such as; easing back pain, improving posture, healthy circulation, temperature control and core stability. Wearing the undershirt, trunks and socks, his posture was never better and that helps his alignment which is great.
