63% of the warmth in comparison to other sports clothing. Additionally, after some research on Air Movements, we found that looser fitting clothing worn in lower temperature results in larger heat transfer and therefore greater heat loss during training. That's simply not what you want in cold weather Golfing, so KYMIRA performance clothing – from the tops to the leggings - have a tighter fitting that retains the heat more efficiently. One of the primary drivers of heat in the KYMIRA fabric is the circulatory benefits of the infrared. The infrared technology has been shown to dramatically boost blood flow, which is key to promoting and retaining heat in the body. Ultimately, it leads to you feeling much warmer during the gloomy Winter cold and much more prepared for your shot than someone who simply wears woollen jacket and trousers. Pumping up your Muscle Elasticity As Golf utilises the entire body during a game, it's important to feel relaxed, limber, and pumped up as you play. Of course, a warm-up is key, but KYMIRA Base Layers not only speed up the warm-up and efficiently maintains the heat –as shown in the previous section – but also helps get your muscles feeling elasticated in several ways. Firstly, the Base Layers – like all KYMIRA products – have a crucial benefit that allows for the body to increase its production of Nitric Oxide. This means that as your body produces more Nitric Oxide, your blood flow circulation is increased – resulting in more Oxygen and nutrients pumping around the body and into your muscles, greater waste disposal from the muscles, and reduced swelling. The Nitric Oxide also causes Skeletal Muscle Tissue Relaxation, meaning that your joints become enhanced as they swing for the fairway and your muscles feel less tight, resulting in less injury occurrence when you try to get your ball on the green. Secondly, the Base Layers are somewhat flexible. There is nothing worse than when your body is raring to go, joints and muscles feeling free and pumped, only to then be restricted by how incredibly tight your clothes feel. Whilst KYMRIA products are fitting, there is still some stretch for you to get the maximum swing possible.
Reducing the Stiffness As the Cold gets to us, it not only robs us of our warmth and tightens our muscles, but it also greatly affects our joints through vasoconstriction. This process limits the blood flow that goes around our body, and as we discussed this in the previous section regarding muscles, it can also negatively affect our joints. Our connective tissues such as ligaments and tendons have a relatively poor blood supply of their own, receiving most of their blood flow osmotically. This means as a joint is moved, they receive blood thanks to an increase of blood in the general area. Joints also become more susceptible to injury due to being less supple. Therefore, with a restricted blood flow, there is a significant drop off for blood coursing to our joints when golfing or training during Winter. But the Base Layer products keep the blood flowing through vasodilation – where the blood vessels expand. This is due to the increased Nitric Oxide production. Essentially resulting Oxygenated and nutrient rich blood being circulated around your joints to keep them supple and limber for your final shot.
