The challenge

The Interval Short is built for versatility. Constructed with four-way stretch to ensure maximum range of motion and a cling-free, ultra-wicking shell for mobility, the Interval Short was constructed to handle everything from HIIT to CrossFit to bootcamps. As a Head Coach at Tone House, Joe’s workouts are focused on improving sports performance. Whether it’s conditioning work with sprints, lateral movements, explosive jumps, gallops, sleds or strength training, he’s working nonstop. That’s why Joe understands the importance of having a go-to short that switches gears at a moment’s notice. To test just how much they can handle, we set Joe up with a pair of our Interval Shorts for an explosive workout.

The Verdict
