Under Armour Wants to Train You in Your Sleep

Under Armour Athlete Recovery Sleepwear
The next frontier of fitness happens after you turn off the lights.

You’re finally on track to get ripped as hell and feel great doing it. You got in a tough day of weights, ate your Epic protein bar, only had one beer, and maybe even foam rolled while watching the latest episode of Shut Eye on Hulu. Heck, you’re serious about getting fit this year, so why not pull out all the stops.

Under Armour is taking your training regimen to bed (literally), hoping its new quick-recovery apparel gives you an edge over the other bros at the squat rack. The sportswear company introduced its UA Athlete Recovery Sleepwear at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 5— the same day its long-sleeve Men’s Henley top ($99.99), Men’s Pant ($99.99), and Men’s Shorts ($79.99) were made available online.

How it works is the pattern lining in each garment is composed of bioceramic materials and Far Infrared properties that transfer heat through your body in such a way that should lend to faster recovery and more optimized ZZZ’s. Far Infrared Energy has been proven to reduce inflammation, improve oxygenation of the blood, and regulate cell metabolism. Not so key to recovery, but still important: the UA Recovery Sleepwear is super soft.

Just ask Tom Brady. No really, because he’s the poster boy for Under Armour’s Recovery Sleepwear. And whether you love or hate the Patriots QB, you have to admit he’s a stellar athlete— winning four of the six Super Bowls he’s participated in.

Brady was an integral part in creating this innovative recovery apparel, having Under Armour collaborate with his company TB12— the athletic Bible, of sorts, of Tom Brady. TB12 is all about enhancing performance and practicing “pre-hab,” via correct fitness and nutrition. Meanwhile the TB12 Center at Patriot Place both trains athletes and tests methods (i.e. the efficacy of bioceramic material used in the UA Recovery Sleepwear).

From the outside, the sleepwear looks just like an ordinary thermal and comes in three colorways: Black, Midnight Navy, and True Gray Heather. Sizes run from small to 3XL, so even if you bulk up like a pro linebacker you can continue making gains in your sleep. Plus, if you track workouts on the UA Record app, a new upgrade includes better-sleep coaching and 14-Day Sleep Score and Body Clock.

So take this as an opportunity to sleep all day Sunday knowing its good for your bod. (Just no football nachos.)

HEYDUDE Slip-On Shoes Are So Comfortable You Won’t Want to Wear Anything Else
HEYDUDE Sirocco Beige style on dash during relaxing ride.

This content was produced in partnership with HEYDUDE.
As a brand, HEYDUDE is sweeping the nation. Becoming more and more popular with just about every age, and people from every walk of life -- it's the fastest-growing footwear brand in the U.S. and the company will surpass $1B in value real soon. There's a good reason for it. HEYDUDEs are stylish, super comfortable, convenient, and once you try them, you'll fall in love. To understand why, we have to backtrack a little bit.

In warmer weather, flip-flops and sandals are the go-to, not just because they keep your feet cool and open, but also because they're so convenient to put on. You just have to slide your feet right in and off you go. They're not at all stylish, however, and you wouldn't want to wear them with certain outfits. HEYDUDEs fix that problem, and so much more. Known as some of the "cushiest, comfiest, airiest, featheriest, lightest shoes on Earth," these words of praise still don't do these shoes justice. You might be wondering, what makes them so comfortable? What kinds of styles do they offer? We're going to explore precisely that.

Everyone's favorite watch brand can be hard to source - here's why
Arm with Rolex Submariner on it

Whether you watch movies, listen to music, or read books, you have likely heard that Rolex watches are the pinnacle of stylish luxury in men's watches. Gorden Gecko sported a Rolex when he became the picture of wealth on Wall Street. Elvis Presley got one of only 100 Rolex King Midas watches for selling out the Houston Astrodome for six straight days. The brand has always been the gold standard in men's luxury.

However, that may not be the case any longer, as the brand seems to be losing its grip on the watch pyramid of superiority.
