Re: Zoot CompressRx Clothing

Well I found a local store yesterday and tried them on and bought them. Worked on lowering the catch position in the snatch, and overhead squats. After working out, went and grabbed a bite to eat, took a shower and sat in them for maybe 2 hours. It's hard to tell how sore I would have been without wearing them for that length of time, but I guess they did their job cause my legs aren't terribly sore.

I will say they are s beast to get on. I got the size 4 and I did try them on. Also they do not come up as high as I thought they would. I asked the guy who has a pair at the store and was shorter than I am and he said that they are more like hippsters and shouldn't come up like underwear.

Re: Zoot CompressRx Clothing

You're probably not going to notice as big a difference in soreness from short workouts as you will in a long one like Murph where you run two miles and do 300 squats.

They really help for multiple workouts in a day.

Damn. I've never seen this site before. Even when I was Google searching for stockists and reviews on Zoot. The price is about the same as what I paid for a pair from the US so it's good to know this place is stocking them. They'd be a quicker delivery. Thanks for the heads up Anthony.

Good to know. If the tights work out for me I might look at getting more gear.

Re: Zoot CompressRx Clothing

I know this is an old thread but its worth a shot. After reading several reviews and weighing the pros and cons between Skins, BSC, and Zoot compression pants; I decided to go with the Zoom Compress RX. After one tabata workout wearing them, the seam on the inner thigh split. Sent them back to where I purchased them from and got another pair sent no hassle. Slipped them on prior to working out, coached a class..look down..and the stitching is coming out of the new pair as well. I took plenty of time sizing to ensure getting the right size so its not that. Haven't had time to see if there's a difference in recovery or not because I'm nervous about them ripping and their quality. Anyone else have these issues?

Re: Zoot CompressRx Clothing

Did you purchase the compression recovery product line or the compression performance?

If you purchased the recovery line then this may May explain the ripping. The recovery line only has about 30% spandex.

I'm assuming the performance line has more stretching material but I don't know.
