FAQ

Simply, the world’s most advanced wearable resistance. Resistance is in the form of weight (see Fusiform micro-loads, below). It is a movement friendly form of resistance you apply directly to the body via the garment, which allows for specific, adjustable, progressive, individual training needs in sports and fitness activities.

These are the weights (or resistance) in 50g, 100g, 200g, and 300g (2-12oz). The star of the Exogen® wearable resistance system, the fusiform load is a patented design, is flexible, body-hugging, and is modelled following muscle architecture. This innovation allows loading to be both dispersed and comfortable, but still very targeted at the same time. They can be placed anywhere on the Exogen® garment as you need.

Yes. Depending on the objective and application. Lila has worked with Dr. John Cronin at the Auckland University of Technology, Sports Performance Research Institute, to conduct research and publish peer-reviewed journal articles. You can see more at the Science of Exogen.

Anyone can benefit from exercising and training with wearable resistance. There really are no limitations so long as you are medically fit and follow all safety guidelines.

Not at all. No single product provides everything. In fact, Exogen® is the perfect partner for many current exercise trends. We highly recommend trying Exogen® during your next suspension or bodyweight workout.

Absolutely. Speed is Exogen territory. If you want to get quicker off the mark, in just a few weeks, without making big changes to your training routine - wear Exogen® calf sleeves while you train. 

You'll find that there is no need to change what you do, just change what you wear. It's that simple.

When weights are loaded on the calf and thigh, Exogen® wearable resistance increases the mechanical work of the entire leg and hip while running - meaning you’ll build strength and power for running.

Exogen® is designed and fully compatible for water use and with precaution is safe for water-based sports and activities.

*During all water-based activities there is an inherent risk of injury or death due to drowning. This includes swimming, surfing, diving, paddling, kayaking, water-skiing, wake/knee boarding, sailing, jet-skiing, or similar.

Therefore,
a. With LOADED Exogen® you are adding weight to your body and this will reduce your buoyancy in any water environment.

b. We recommend you do not use LOADED Exogen® in a water environment such as a pool, lake, river, ocean or other if you are;

Not a competent swimmer, not wearing approved life preserving, safety flotation devices as required for your age, level or activity, or alone with no qualified supervision immediately nearby.

Yes. Exogen® garments meet international standards for compression recovery. This provides light-to-mild contraction during unloaded training. You can train fully loaded with Exogen® then de-load and leverage the compression for recovery.

Yes. It is designed for a specific fit ensuring adequate compression, anti-slip, and comfort especially when loaded. Wearable resistance compression wear takes getting used to especially when putting on and taking off. The material will naturally stretch over time.
