Accessories That Help You Burn Calories

Want to get rid of those extra pounds quickly? Special clothing such as power balance wristbands and CW-X compression tights may help.

From special socks and tights to shoes and bracelets, Janet Lee, of Shape Magazine, has given her take on these latest items that supposedly help you burn calories as you wear it, reports CBS News.

Resistance wear weighted vest
“The vest can be used in any intensity of exercise routine, whether you are engaging in a relaxing walk or intense cardio workout. The vest is lined with CoolMaxa, a patented lightweight fabric that channels perspiration away from the body for faster evaporation.”

Power balance wristbands

“This wristband is a perfect fit for your everyday activities. Power Balance is performance technology that uses holograms, which are embedded with frequencies that react positively with your body’s natural energy field to improve balance, strength, and flexibility.”

CW-X compression tights
“Provide engineered gradient compression for your lower body, which help maintain healthy circulation, prevents dehydration, and swelling. The elastic fibers apply pressure to the surface of the skin, which aids to the circulation of blood.”

Reebok easy tone
“The Reebok EasyTone sneaker slims with each step. The balance pods, which are in the soles of the shoe create natural instability while you walk and increase muscle activation in the gluteus maximus by 28 percent, the calves by 11 percent and the hamstring by 11 percent.”

“The MBT "anti shoe" has several pro body benefits that have resulted in an increasing number of studies supporting the numerous health benefits of this creation and prove why natural movement is so healthy.”

Avia (avi-motion) Toning-in-motion sneakers
“Negative heel engineering of this lightweight shoe promotes muscle activation while the forefoot flex grooves allow for natural dorsiflexion, the movement which decreases the angle between the dorsum (superior surface) of the leg, so that the toes are brought closer to the shin.”
