SizeUp Apparel. An honest review.

Last week I received an email from sizeupapparel.com asking for a product review. I usually get some of these but when I answer them noticing that I live in Spain, they always apologize telling me that they only ship to the US, Canada…

As you know, I live in Spain and sometimes it is difficult to find companies from the other side of the world that ships to my country. This time was different, and here´s the good news: they ship worldwide!

While they sent my order, I did some search on the company to be able to offer you some valuable information. It´s a company based in Michigan, USA founded in 2011 by Chase Campbell, a 19-year-old entrepreneur. I think that´s really cool, isn´t it? You can read more about it here.

We all love to buy new clothes. It gives us extra motivation. There are numerous companies that are coming up with new clothing and new fabrics almost every day so, it becomes difficult for us to choose the correct brand of clothing. And I’m going to tell you this, SizeUpApparel really deserves that you give it a chance.

I thought the shipping time would be the first thing I would write down on the list of cons, but I was totally wrong. Not only that, the shipping is very fast. I received my order in just three days. I usually buy online from big brands like Nike or Adidas, who ship their products to Spain from Netherlands and Germany, respectively, and the shipments take 5-7 days minimum. So, this was another great and positive surprise.

I got 3 items: a training hoodie, a tank top, and a pair of joggers.

The clothes are also unusually affordable. For tanks, shoppers can pay as little as $19.99. At other brands, the same shoppers might pay closer to $50. Joggers go for as little as $29.99. Plus, they look really good.

Good quality of the fabrics, they feel soft and they also are great for an intense workout. And here´s an example: Yesterday was chest and shoulder day so, I recorded a short video doing some exercises… Chest press, flyes, lateral raises…

The hoodie and the joggers fit perfect, and the comfort level is amazing. I also did some leg exercises to test the joggets to the fullest: they stay tight at the waist, and you can move comfortably up and down doing squats or lunges.

From my personal perspective, SizeUp clothing meets expectations and can be compared to other major brands. Without a doubt, I will become a regular customer. The decision is yours, but I would consider them the next time I go to buy clothes for training.

If you find something you like, I have a surprise for you. use the code CHAPE20 and you will get a 20% discount.

  1. Hello Chape! I’m surprised that the clothes reached you so fast, being that they were shipped from across the Atlantic ocean. I’ll definitely look up Sizeup, since Michigan is right next to my own state.

    1. It was a nice surprise for me too. Shipping was even faster than most national shipments. Btw, don´t be impressed with the extremely muscular men on their web, hahaha! Size S suits me perfectly and make me look bigger ;)

Your turn. What do you think about this?

Lower Back

The Erector Spinae is not just one muscle, but a bundle of muscles and tendons. Paired, they run more or less vertically. It extends throughout the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions, and lies in the groove to the side of the vertebral column.

Latissimus Dorsi

The latissimus dorsi is the larger, flat, dorsolateral muscle on the trunk, posterior to the arm, and partly covered by the trapezius on its median dorsal region.

Deltoids

The Deltoid muscle is the muscle forming the rounded contour of the shoulder. It is divided into three portions, anterior, lateral and posterior, with the fibers having different roles due to their orientation.

Infraspinatus

The Infraspinatus muscle is one of the four rotator cuff muscles crossing the shoulder joint and is commonly injured. It is the main external rotator of the shoulder joint.

Biceps

The Biceps brachii is  actually two separate bundles of muscles (heads). The two heads of the Biceps vary in length and as a result, are called the Short and the Long Biceps heads.

Triceps

The Triceps Brachii muscles  have three muscle heads: Lateral, Medial and Long head. Primarily responsible for the extension of the elbow joint. The lateral head is used for movements requiring occasional high-intensity force, while the medial fascicle enables more precise, low-force movements.

Forearm
(Anterior muscles)

The Pronator teres pronates the forearm, turning the hand posteriorly. If the elbow is flexed to a right angle, then pronator teres will turn the hand so that the palm faces inferiorly. It is assisted in this action by pronator quadratus.

Forearm
(Posterior muscles)

The Extensor Digitorum muscle helps in the movements of the wrists and the elbows. It extends the phalanges, then the wrist, and finally the elbow. It acts principally on the proximal phalanges. It tends to separate the fingers as it extends them.

Pecs

The pectoralis major makes up the bulk of the chest muscles in the male and lies under the breast in the female.

The pectoralis minor is a thin, triangular muscle, situated at the upper part of the chest, beneath the pectoralis major. 

Abs

The Rectus Abdominis is the most superficial of the abdominal muscles. It is this muscle which forms the six-pack shape! It is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the abdomen. There are two parallel muscles, separated by a midline band of connective tissue called the linea alba.

Obliques

The External Oblique is situated on the lateral and anterior parts of the abdomen. It is broad, thin, and irregularly quadrilateral. It is the largest and the most superficial (outermost) of the three flat muscles of the lateral anterior abdomen. 

Glutes

The gluteal muscles are a group of three muscles which make up the buttocks: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. The three muscles originate from the ilium and sacrum and insert on the femur. The functions of the muscles include extension, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation of the hip joint.

Quadriceps

The Quadriceps Femoris is the knee extensor muscle.  As a group, the quadriceps femoris is crucial in walking, running, jumping and squatting. It´s subdivided into four separate “heads”.

Hamstrings

A hamstring is any one of the three posterior thigh muscles in between the hip and the knee (from medial to lateral: semimembranosus, semitendinosus and biceps femoris). The hamstrings are quite susceptible to injury.

Lower Leg

The gastrocnemius and the soleus form what we know as calf. They are involved in activities such as walking, running, jumping…

The trapezius is a broad, flat and triangular muscle. The muscles on each side form a trapezoid shape. It is the most superficial of all the back muscles.
