Rated 5 out of 5 by Brett Helps with recovery, fights fatigue
At my age I'm always looking for a little edge. I use these a couple times a week at Crossfit, mainly when doing higher reps of squatting movements and recovering when legs are already sore. Not a miracle cure but the little bit they help is well worth it in the long run. Drink lots of water, I think these things force fluids out of your legs, that's a good thing. Comfortable enough to forget your wearing them, even for hours. Take your time putting them on and taking them off. They are a little warm when dry, wicking action when wet will cool the skin, even under heavy work pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Billy the Kid Unfair Advantage
I'm Australian and when playing rugby at school, (which is like football to us- almost a religion) EVERY PLAYER WILL BE WEARING SKINS. It's considered a disadvantage if you haven't got them on your legs. One of our coaches even did an experiment and he saw that we performed about 15-25% better on average (over a squad of about 20) with the skins on. Only time when we're not going to wear them- when it's blazing hot, as it gets in Australia, pool sessions. Every other footy game and training, it's "Boots- check, mouthguard- check, skins- check. Let's go" So, my advice is that you go and get some.
