What can I say....they are comfortable. Perfect for the wind sprints, etc. I have a buddy who wears the longer version (..down to his knees), but I think they look funny. It's like he's wearing capris.

I do stop laughing when he puts up the numbers though. LOL!

See I just can't wear those things without something over like shorts. Just feels weird! I especially can't wear leggings when running!! My legs never get cold anyway and I sweat extra so it never turns out well!

It does take a minute to get used to and/or adjust to wearing them (..if not for comfort, then for confidence). I sprint in compression shorts, but for long runs I use Nike Dri-Fit running tights like these:





I simply wear them for comfort rather than heat retention/cold deterrence. I almost always workout in long sleeve Dri-Fit shirts. I sweat a lot and I hate for other peoples sweat to touch me.

If I can get my deadlift into the 400's by the summer of 2013 I will feel like I have really accomplished something. This is the most recent photo that I've taken:

Haha I do indeed remember! That's great progress so far man, and as always, looking solid. I just started to rack up some more calories for my bulk and can't wait to start bringing up my lifts again. Getting shredded for the summer is always great, but I hate it when I start to get weaker as a result.

Yup... It does come in handy though, especially since I tend to get carried away with my peanut butter lol

I'm doing a leangains intermittent fasting regime for a month... and I need to follow my macros, hence why I need to know the grams of protein/fat/carbs I'm eating. Scale will be a huge help!
