If your size is in the transition area we recommend the smaller size based on function - they will be snug but effective. If you have any size concerns please reach out to our customer service specialist at 1.888.820.CORE (2673) or firstname.lastname@example.org
The Coreshorts 1.0 have been a great help in hip stabilization during training. As a fitness coach, I am always on my feet training and at times my lower back tends to be in pain. I have greatly reduced hip internal and external rotations due to years of hard impact sports and as a result I have a lot of compensations, but wearing the core shorts 3.0 have allowed me to correct my movements and utilize the correct stabilizing muscles to produce the right movement. Overall, I am extremely happy with the product, looking forward to trying the 2.0 and 3.0.
Ordered a size Sm for my son, a Lg was sent by mistake (which was very quickly corrected) so I ended up keeping the Lg for myself and decided to give them a try. I wore them first for squatting and was very impressed, it was like wearing knee sleeves for your hips. I wore them skating and was really happy with the feeling of stability it gave my hips and groin and also seemed to feel as if my legs wanted to snap back in after taking a stride. I was a little skeptical to try them as I’m not a great hockey player and was recommended these by a former Jr A player. I thought they were great and am really happy I can use them in the gym as well as on the ice.
Bought these and other coretection products because I had a bad adductor injury from playing too much soccer. Didn't want that to happen again. Ever since buying these, I've been feeling anxiety-free about my adductor problems. They've not returned no matter how often I sprint and train. I use them on/off again to prevent leg strain. They're great and you can really feel them working no matter the strength level. I personally think the pro 1.0 is the best if you're trying to prevent problems due to cardio, and 2.0/3.0 is the best for weighlifting hip problems.
Great product.....not just a base layer!!
