A sixty five year old spinner
on 14 September 2013
I have type 2 diabetes and I've begun spinning to try and bring my weight down. I'm progressing quite well, but the big bugbear has been my thighs chafing painfully against the saddle of the exercise bike not to mention my poor old coccyx and testicular bits.
I've purchased a gel saddle so the problem with my tailbone has reduced somewhat. I ordered up a pair of these UA shorts and I must say at first use they have been a revelation. No chafing and I don't have to stop constantly and it's great not having to adjust my ordinary gym shorts into a more comfortable place before resuming. The legs do tend to ride up slightly, but I think one size smaller would be a bit better.........I ordered an X-L as I'm an in between size round the waist (37"). Having worn the shorts I would reckon the L size would have more 'grip' to them and consequently I will buy another two pairs at this size. The XL's will do for warmth under trousers on trips into town.
I'll update and say how I get on with the smaller sizes, but in the interim I'm impressed by the finish of shorts and being polyester/elastane they should wash easily and dry quickly for same day use. All in all I'm impressed by the item and it's value for money. We shall see if they prove to be durable.
