Spinning Hotpants

While I was spinning on the  in my office-cum-bolthole-cum-junkroom yesterday lunchtime while DD was napping (after a rather exhausting morning visiting the Post Office and playing in the new village playground), I got to thinking about spinning kit. This was partly because the new Hotpants that I have been wearing to spin were still drying so I had to wear an old pair of yoga leggings. Now I should point out here that Hotpants, if you haven’t heard of them, are like neoprene shorts, rather than actual ‘hot pants’. (I wouldn’t even inflict that look on my reflection.)

Hotpants are designed to reflect your natural body heat and make you sweat up to 80% more than normal work out gear, flushing out toxins and reducing the appearance of cellulite. What’s not to love about that? The inventors wanted to maximise the effect of a 30 minute workout and found that when you wear these shorts you can get the effect of a full workout squeezed into a mini one. Which is great for me as I only get to squash in 30 mins exercise while DD is napping and I don’t want to compromise on results (i.e. I’m still trying to shift the last of my baby weight – ya feel me?).

Apart from all the technical stuff they’re also super supportive and, importantly, very cushioning in the er…butt area so I don’t get a numb bum when I’m spinning. And you don’t have to wear them just when you’re working out to get the benefits. Good eh?
