Former world boxing champ Keith Holmes knew when he came up with the idea for a “resistance shirt,” it could be a knockout.
Resistance bands are helpful for training, but people have trouble adjusting them and they don’t always seem sanitary.
So Holmes asked his dry cleaner to sew a resistance band into the back of a compression shirt and let the ends dangle by his hands. He slipped his palms into the handles and shadowboxed his way through a jog.
“My muscles were burning,” raves Holmes. The result is the RS-1 ($100), the first product from Holmes’ apparel company, Ripflexxx.
