SHAKE THAT BOOTY- WORKOUT WUNDERKIT

Ditch the gym and blast your body with HliT outdoor workouts

UNDER ARMOUR RUSH TRAINING GEAR

Under Armour pioneered the original base layer back in 1996 - and the new Rush running and training gear reinvents that originalsweat-wicking workout clobber with some very 21st-century fabric tech.

Each Rush baselayer features Celliant bioceramic fabric technology. Tiny minerals embedded into the fibres work a bit like a fancy infrared sauna, reflecting far infrared energy - a safe type of radiation your body creates- back into the muscles to promote bloodflow. This helps clear waste products from tired limbs more quickly, keeps you warm on a deep tissue level and improves endurance. The range includes long and short -sleeve tees, vest, tights and even hoodies and scubas. The compression training gear is perfect for strength and HilT sessions that take you outdoors. It's second-skin light, warm and very comfortable, and feels a bit like you're suiting up in workout armour. The soft fabric also protects you from the chafe . Be warned , though: the hugging fit is also very good at revealing your weakness for craft beer and burgers.
