Techfit for the New Year

It might look more like a reject from the wardrobe department of the next Batman film than something you’d play footy in, but this is the latest innovation in sportswear from German exercise maestros Adidas.The Techfit range of (allegedly) performance-enhancing kit was originally designed for superhuman Olympic gods but is now being put into production for Premier League football clubs and us: the great unexercised.Adidas says it works by supporting those aching muscles and storing kinetic energy to turn you from Johnny Weakling into Wolf from Gladiators, or a nimble-toed ball of energy. Whether or not it’ll actually work on the lazy slobs that inhabit the Stuff office is another matter, but for that extra helping hand on the rugby pitch every Sunday morning, it can’t do any harm, can it?
