Is the Wrestling Singlet in Trouble?


Great article on the wrestling singlet. Traditionally wrestling was nude – the modern wrestling singlet combines function and form to reveal an athletic competitor’s raw power. Thanks to singlets and stuff for the content and post.

Singlets and Stuff

2012 Team USA Media Summit

The singlet…the modern uniform and arguably the most recognizable aspect of amateur wrestling (folkstyle, freestyle, and greco-roman).  However, the sport may be getting a new look in the coming years, which may not include the iconic one-piece.

Ever since the IOC (International Olympic Committee) announced the removal of wrestling from the 2020 Olympics in February of last year, it sparked a wildfire of wrestlers, fans, and supporters from across the globe.  It also shook up the governing body of FILA ( Fédération Internationale des Luttes Associées or International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles), who replaced their president and started to put forth proposals to help “modernize” the sport as well as make it more appealing to the masses.

Some proposed changes include modifications to the scoring system to award more aggressive wrestlers and prevent long boring matches prevailed by clinching.  A different mat color to appeal better to television viewers, is…

Lycra Tri Suits – Latest Design from O2 Fit


New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.

Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).

O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:

o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.

The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.

Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
  • Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.

Does o2fit compression products have a UV rating?

Yes, all of our products have a UV rating of 50+.

Reebok Mens Crossfit Compression Tight


Reebok Crossfit Stride Feather Jacket

 

Nike Cross Fit Stride Feather Jacket – Running inspired durable ripstop lightweight jacket features a water resistant shell fabric that helps repel the outdoor elements. Self bound internal seams provide super clean interior finish. Micro mesh vents at underarm and sleeve for breathability.

Reebok Mens CrossFit Compression Tights

 

I just stumbled across this Mens Cross Fit Compression tight made by Reebok. 

These two pieces would look the part at any gym or workout!

The Reebok Men’s CrossFit Compression Tights feature PlayIce fabric technology which uses ventilation, moisture management and fabric construction to help aid the release of heat. Antimicrobial fabrication and stretch flatlock seams further enhance long-lasting comfort, even for the toughest workout.

Fabric: 73% polyester, 27% elastane tricot
PlayIce fabric technology offers enhanced ventilation and moisture release
Antimicrobial fabrication keeps you feeling fresher for longer
Stretch flatlock seams offer chafe-free comfort
Mesh gusset and knee panels for enhanced range of motion

Having tried compression tights with the gusset (support for guys), I think the gusset is useful in activities which you are moving around a fair bit, such as cardio workouts etc.

I’m interested in how many men (apart from me) would wear these cool compression tights.

There seems to be a trend away from black and boring compression tights. As seen in my earlier post, womens compression tight fashion is a lot more interesting, whilst the men are too scared to buy compression pants that have a colour or designs.

I think the right mix of support and compression is also vital, and not being familiar with the PlayIce fabric technology, I wonder how it compares to the likes of the Brooks Dri-Fit wicking technology and also the type of technology used in the antimicrobrial fabrication (how is this done?).

According to one review on the Reebok site, they run small and are a little tight, which has been my experience with some Brooks Running Tights I bought some time ago (although I think it was my chub that was the problem – not the tights).

If you’ve bought a pair of these tights, let us know what they were like and whether you would recommend them.
