The challenge

When you’re putting in the work and training hard, the only way to sustain high performance is by putting the same time and effort into your post-workout routine. Recovery can take on a multitude of meanings in the fitness space. But whether you’re moving through some static stretching, plugging into a pair of Normatec Boots, or hopping into an ice bath, you still need the right gear to help you finish strong.

The Recovery Crew and Pant have you covered for all of your cool down and recovery needs. Constructed with comfortable, double knit, no-pill fabric and a permanent anti-odor treatment, our new after-training essentials have been put through the wringer to ensure they won’t shrink, pill, or sustain damage over time.

To put the kit to the test, we collaborated with four of our athletes who invest as much into their recovery as they do their training. The verdict was conclusive: there is no better combination of garments in the game to keep your muscles warm, keep you comfortable, and help you get the most out of your session after the work is done.

Marathoner, Muay Thai fighter and professional body builder, the New York City restaurateur lives and breathes fitness. Chernow prioritizes his recovery over all things, and prefers hot and cold therapies, like an ice bath and sauna session, above all else.

  • Walk outs with world's greatest stretch - 4 reps per side
  • Banded pull apart - 20 reps hold at the bottom for 2 secs each rep

  • Rest 1 minute then repeat

The Verdict

DURABLE AND COMFORTABLE

I haven’t taken this thing off for the past two weeks. It’s the perfect quarantine get-up… my wife practically had to hide it from me so she could wash it. The crew and sweatpants are the first thing I throw on right after a session like the one I did today. It keeps my muscles warm while I wait for my sauna to heat up or while I’m loading ice into the tub. After a few weeks of wear, this kit still feels brand new. Ten Thousand nailed this one.”
