We are less than three days away from the most anticipated running event of the year – the Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon.
As the KLSCM takes place in the warm and tropical Kuala Lumpur, you will want to focus on attires that will keep you cool and comfortable. The suitable running clothing that wicks away moisture from your body is extremely crucial.
With the KLSCM approaching, Under Armour Malaysia sent us a set of Under Armour RUSH, to be optimising our performance at the annual running event. UA RUSH is the newest performance apparel line, designed to be worn at the time of sweat.
How running apparels can optimise your run
It is important to wear suitable running apparels so that your running experience will be a calm, pleasant, and enjoyable one. Running apparels are usually made of breathable materials that wick away perspiration and regulate your body temperature.
In order to feel comfortable throughout your run, baselayers can be helpful to absorb the energy your body emits and reflects it back into your tissues and muscles. Your baselayers should create a second skin effect, providing muscle support and enhancing breathability.
In addition to staving off your tired legs, compression running tights give you extra support, increase circulation to your legs, and reduce your muscle soreness. When you have longer runs, a pair of compression running tights gives you an extra edge, decreasing your energy expenditure.
Female runners, sports bras is your most important piece of running apparels. Designed to handle movement and motion so that when you move, sports bras will provide maximum support and hold your breasts firmly in place, in order to reduce pain and discomfort.
Sports bras are also made from sweat wicking fabrics which keeps you more comfortable while running and help prevent chafing problems that may develop during prolonged activity with a wet bra.
What is Under Armour RUSH
UA RUSH is a new line of workout gear created from innovative fabrics infused with minerals proven to improve performance.
This scientifically engineered fabric promotes improved performance and energy return. In collaboration with leading technology provider Celliant, UA RUSH is intended to provide the same benefits to the body as infrared sauna.
Minerals found naturally in the earth are extracted and broken down into active particles, which are then melded together to form a propriety blend. The blend is then infused into the fibres which ultimately knit into Under Armour’s high-performance fabrics that make up the gear in the collection.
