Every athlete enjoys the feeling of training and competing when the sun is out but the removal of layers, intake of copious amounts of fluid or just trying to find some shade is an all too familiar sight. The trouble is that if you resort to any of these then you are probably acting too late so could benefit from clothing that keeps you cool from the outset.
How refreshing it is to have a collection of base layer heat gear designed specifically for warm conditions to assist your body when the temperatures start to rise. By starting off with a pair of base layer heat gear shorts or a heat gear compression shirt then this will act as a second skin to be worn under regular training kit.
The key feature of any base layer heat gear garment is wick sweat away from your body and into the air so as not to carry around any excess moisture and weight. They are also specifically designed to be a tight fit, preventing muscle oscillation which can waste energy. Due to lightweight fabrics being used then your comfort will not be compromised plus there is the added feature of anti-bacterial agents keeping your base layers smelling fresh no matter what you put them through.
Canterbury and Under Armour both offer a collection of base layer heat gear shorts and shirts aimed at keeping you cool for optimum performance and recovery.
