Al Kavadlo, the author of several books, including the Amazon bestseller Street Workout, is a leading expert in bodyweight strength training and calisthenics. Famous for smiling while performing difficult bodyweight exercises, Al has racked up millions of views on his YouTube channel.

Al recently took the new helix II flex-knit integrated pocket short through one of his street workouts. Here is what he had to say.

what are they

The new Helix II shorts are a great example of HYLETE’s ongoing commitment to making the best fitness apparel on the market today. I’ve been a fan of HYLETE apparel for several years, and the quality of their gear continues to impress me. The new Helix II shorts look great, feel great and never get in the way of your movements.

why you need them

The attention to detail is impressive as well. The material is lightweight and breathable, without being flimsy.The stitching is clean and comfortable, and the drawstrings have a tiny bit of rubber so that they are sure to stay tied even while running or jumping. The plastic at the end of the drawstrings is also reinforced to prevent any fraying with repeated wearings. 

your favorite details

The Helix II shorts have plenty of pocket space so you can easily hold your keys, wallet, phone and anything else you may need during your workout. As with all HYLETE shorts, the placement of the zipper pockets is ideal for keeping your essentials close by, yet out of the way during your training.
