ZAGGORA HOT PANTS for those of you that don't know are pants that are suppose to help you lose weight 4x's faster!
HotPants increase energy expenditure during exercise by 6% versus the control garment. HotPants increase energy expenditure in the hour after exercise by 26%*.
In 30 minutes of exercise, weight loss is around 4x greater in HotPants than in a standard garment. On average, subjects lost 1.13% of body mass in HotPants compared to 0.27% in the control garment.
HotPants increase the core body temperature by an average of 18% more than the control garment, which leads to an increase in metabolism.
(Tested on 9 women with an average BMI of 23.3. All test subjects performed 30 minutes of exercise in HotPants as well as in a standard control garment.)
Well, my Zaggora Hot Pants "finally" arrived!
(I purchased the Capri Flares)
They tell you when you order them that it takes 4-6 weeks to get them and they mean it!
I have yet to hear of anyone getting them before 4 weeks, mine took 4 weeks a couple days, that seems to be the normal amount of time.
Of course them telling you ahead of time that they will take that long is good business, but if you are like me waiting for something you want is like waiting that last week for Christmas to arrive....time drags!
So they arrived yesterday..."after" my work out (BOO), so today was my
first work out in Hot Pants!
FEEDBACK: (sorry it may be a little too descriptive for some lol)
*Pricey $95 + shipping!
My goal this week is to work out 1HR on the elliptical, 20min on level 4, 20 min on level 3, and 20 min on lever 2.....
I found today's work out in Hot Pants tougher than the usual work out
The Pants are like wearing a divers suit...made out of the same material I believe? So they are thicker, and come higher (above your stomach but under your boobs a couple inches) this is good because I want to loose inches there too...but they don't look like they should fit that high up in the pictures, I read someone else said they fit really high up too, I wonder if it is a height thing as I am 5' 4" ??
The material being stretchy but thick made my work out harder because it offered extra resistance like an elastic band would sort of.
I ended up doing 15min at level 4, 15min at level , 15 min at level 2, and 15 mon at level 1. I think if I continue to wear them that this will be my new work out schedule.
SWEAT? Oh YA....LOTS AND LOTS of SWEAT!
I guess this is where the inches lost comes from ...water loss?
I am concerned about what happens when one stops working out with them or consumes more water to replace the water lost?
So The Sweat...the gross, disgusting sweat!
I can handle normal work out sweat ...this is a whole new level of sweat!
When I finished my work out I was thinking I would take off the hot pants and put them on later in the day and do Dance Central on the XBOX ...ya NO, they will not be going back on to day unless whatever they are made of dries CRAZY fast because they are SOAKED! I sat down after my work out and drip, drip, on my foot....WTH? Water (sweat) was literally dripping from the pant leg at the bottom...so much it made a small puddle.
I than proceeded to take them off....they became a little inside out so I gave them that shake...and sweat went flying from them....GROSS I KNOW, lesson learned I won't do that again.
When you want to wash them, you have to wash them by hand and hang dry......after all that sweat you will be wanting desperately to wash them after every work out! But REALLY, who wants to wash an item every day?
I am not sure what I think of them for sure.....
Today I took my measurements and the plan is to do the 2 week challenge and see what the end results are.
I will work out the 1 hr as above Mon-Fri (this week will be Tues-Fri as I just got them) And we will see what that 9 days of working out with them does. I will keep my calorie intake between 1,100 and 1,400 cals a day.....I think it is going to be a long 9 days working out in GROSS SWEAT!!!
I will update this Friday July 6th and lyk if they are worth the price and/or the grossness of all that sweat!
