Breathable Fabrics Or Regular Garments For Rogue Fitness

Rogue fitness routines vary widely and can be carried out more easily with the right clothing.  Sporting fabric enables comfortable workouts.

Leaves have a neat way of getting rid of water vapor. They have chambers with tiny pores (stomata) that allow water vapor to escape (transpiration).  Have you seen people wearing rogue fitness clothes having almost the same expertise? Clothes, which are elastic, non-absorbent, weatherproof and lightweight and fits any form!

Just imagine someone wearing a rogue fitness outfit that

  • removes sweat from the skin thus keeping it dry and comfortable
  • regulates heat, keeping muscles and joints warm without overheating
  • provides compressive support for muscles, ligaments and joints
  • increases blood flow

Such rogue fitness garments are now available in the market with all those above-mentioned facilities. They have hollow cavities and tiny, raised holes – just like the stomata of leaves which allow plants to cool and regulate moisture loss through transpiration.

Not only are rogue fitness material useful as a sports fabric or as orthopaedic support or as military clothing, but people who want to loose weight without being soaked in sweat while running are using such garments.  They feel that breathable fabrics for rogue fitness are too good for daily rough wear and tear.

Fabrics like Stomatex are used to make all forms of athletic vests, shorts, back belts and knee supports. Products like wet suits, surfing wetsuits, survival suits, thermal underwear and warm-up suits are always in demand round the world by enthusiasts of rogue fitness.

Nevertheless, how do these things work?

Fabrics for rogue fitness use a pattern of dome-shaped vapor chambers. Each chamber has a tiny pore in the center. While resting, excess body heat and perspiration rise into the dome-shaped chambers and exit through the tiny pores at a controlled rate. The chambers contract and stretch with each movement of the body, causing excess heat and perspiration to be pumped out of the small pores (This also allows cooler, drier air to enter from the outside).

The unique pumping action of the vapor chambers increases and decreases with the user’s level of physical activity during rogue fitness.

Over the years, Neoprene, which has holes punched through it, was employed in many applications, primarily because until now there has not been a better alternative. While fabrics like Stomatex have advantages for rogue fitness workouts over traditional Neoprene in certain circumstances, the size and formation of the holes significantly reduce the insulation value resulting in condensation of sweat and cooling of the skin. It also causes significant changes in the material’s compressive and elastic qualities.

Maybe it really is the time to dress in green leaves rather than simple clothes for rogue fitness.
