Like ZZ Top once said, She’s got legs, and she knows how to use them.

Thanks to Etsy shop owner DeelaDesigns, there are so many to choose from. Now you just have to find your favorite after the break. And – if you don’t like leggings, then Deela as skirts too! Win!

Fancy pants – why wear padded riding shorts?


Great article on padded bike pants or bike shorts – definitely worth wearing on long rides. Buy a few pairs if you are considering riding daily – your bum will thank you!

Curved S-seams, lycra, flat seams, chamois, high rise rear fit, elasticated cuffs, 3D anatomical shaping, multi-level foam construction, anti-bacterial finish… sound like an engineering project?  No just padded riding shorts.

As with most things riding related the choices here are endless…baggy, short, long, 3/4, summer, winter, reflective…

So whats important and why should you wear them?  Its all about comfort and protection…  a common theme in riding and important when you begin to ride for longer distances or more frequently.  A lot of design work has gone into the chamois (padded) part of these shorts. Where the padding is and isn’t, just like your perfect bike seat, and it means the best possible outcome for where your body comes into contact with the bike – like gloves for your hands and shoes for your feet.

Range of different chamois shapes Range of different chamois shapes.

So why are they so tight?  Well that padded bit…

5 Tips to Maximize Your Workouts


Great tights – love the contrast. Oh.. and the workout tips are good too. Thanks for blogging. regards LL.

activehealthyme

For my workouts over the past 4 months I have been following Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide. Despite having been a keen gym-goer for the past 5 years or so, since starting the guide I have seen dramatic improvements in both my strength and cardio fitness. The best part is I actually spend less time at the gym than ever before!

Here are 5 tips that I use to get more out of my workouts:

  1. Switch up your routine

FullSizeRender (1) TRX Mountain Climbers

Although repeating your favourite exercises may give you some results to begin with, after a few weeks the muscles will become accustomed to them. This means that you are likely to burn less energy performing them and you may not see the results that you were hoping for. You may also begin to find the exercises easier, making your workouts less challenging both mentally and physically. For…

Triathletes changing at the beach


Nice lycra

London Lycra Guy

I’m back in London now so time to catch up on some blogging. So in an earlier post during the an early morning visit to the local beach this morning there were two chaps that were worth a mention here as they were living the Lycra Dream.The temperature was going to be in the mid 30’s so everyone was out at the crack of dawn to get their exercise in before the heat of the day kicked in so as Dad and I approached the beach there were quite a few cyclist we had passed and so I was hopeful of seeing some Speedos or Cycling Lycra when we actually got to the foreshore and beach itself.As we passed the main café at our end of the beach and crossed the top car park I could see that the bottom car park was about half full and a few…

Lycra Advertisement Movie – The Lycra Difference ‘Lycra Moves You’


Lycra moves you – need we say more! Great artistic expression, highlighting the easy free flowing nature of lycra.

adboardingpass

Your daily dose of advertising awesomeness from around the world!

Today’s pick:

  • Agency: SapientNitro
  • Location: London
  • Client: Lycra
  • Name: Lycra moves you
  • Category: Film
  • Why I like it: Nice! Imagine the brief: take a dull, almost industrial product (a stretchy fiber!) and delicately try and balance the functional (must feature product! must convey functional benefit through some sort of demo!) with the emotional (make it a part of people’s lives! make it contemporary! make it meaningful!) A groan-inducing challenge, which they somehow pulled off flawlessly: The film is beautiful, and almost hypnotic in its use of special effects, color and movement; there is a linearity to the storytelling as we go through the woman’s day; and all of this is wrapped around a clear message of how the product moves with us through life. Really impressive.
