“ Manufacturer: Adidas / Type: Athletics / Running „
Base Layer style tops are now common place amongst many athletes and especially with some top footballers. There are many of these available now in variety of brands and styles.I have now got a few of them which are both long sleeve and short sleeve. They are meant to be worn under your main top or t shirt when you take part in sporting activities.
The Adidas Tech fit range is right at the top in terms of quality and also price. The top I have is similar to the one shown in the picture but is blue in colour. I managed to get it for around £20 whilst searching around on the internet but the RRP is a whooping £50. It is not cheap but it is top of the range and are the ones that players like Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Michael Ballack wear.
The description of the product states that the " Adidas TECHFIT range is designed to focus your muscles energy to generate maximum explosive power, acceleration and endurance. It helps to build a taller, athletic posture, allowing athletes to achieve their performance potential at even the highest speeds."
That does sound like an advert but really it does seem to work and evidence is in the fact that alot of the top players and athletes wear these tops. As with wearing any top pieces of equipment you won't suddenly turn into a superstar footballer or athlete but it does definitely help to improve performance and comfort. It compresses your body muscles and this also I believe helps you to breathe more easily and the compression element is something that can keep you warm when it is cold and there is also climacool technology to keep you cool as well as getting rid of excess moisture/sweat. It is meant to help you perform better when taking part in sport for longer and also meant to help prevent fatigue by aligning muscles. It also helps you in keeping good posture and you won't need to keep correcting this all the time.
A good word to describe TechFit PowerWeb is "experiential." You have to try it on to see the benefits. When you try it on you can feel your back straighten, shoulders roll back, and your overall posture improve. The compression shirt is also easy to take off unlike some other compression ones which are available to purchase.
This is a top quality product and you can feel it when you try it on and use it when taking part in sports and other physical activities. Overall I find this to be a great product but it does come with a quite hefty price tag so if you don't have the budget for it , there will probably be other brands and ranges available as well but may not be as high quality. It gets 5/5 stars from me.
