[quote author="Bala Dishnan" date="1277317945"]O.o so they do help? Hmm do you have any kind of cheap tights to recommend? Oh and would there be any risk in wearing them when weightlifting? Just need to clear up a few doubts, sorry I’m asking so many questions…
In this case it’s definitely going to be a ‘get what you pay for scenario.’ As mentioned, if you’re looking for ‘performance enhancing tights’ you’ll definitely have to shell out more than $20-30. I did see some powerweb shorts a while back for under $50 but the bulk of your options are going to be upwards of $60.
Has anyone tried the Under Armour shorts? I saw them the other day and was curious how they compare.
I had some sprinters use the powerwebs and about 70% loved them but the remainder had similar results to Mort.[/quote]
I have the original Coreshorts before underarmour bought them. They are exactly the same. I have the “rehab” version which is like a neoprene rubber almost kind of like rehband weightlifting shorts, they are only good for squats imo. I also have the “medium” version which you could do all lifts in and maybe some runs. I do not like running in them at all. Restrictive in some ways as opposed to compressing. Good for running with slight injury. The “light” version is probably fine to run in though.
