Leg Waxing for Men

Why Athletes Remove Body Hair

Often you see sprinters with hairless bodies. Not surprisingly, there is a performance advantage involved. Research backs this up. An article in the Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise demonstrated that a time savings ranging from 0.01 seconds in the 100 m to 5.7 seconds over the course of a marathon can be achieved by removal of hair. Seconds count in this sport, even fractions of a second

Wrestlers are associated with smooth, hairless skin. They remove hair to prevent chaffing and rashes caused by rubbing. Triathletes of all levels often remove hair prior to events for the reasons mentioned above. Lastly, bodybuilders' motive is pretty straightforward: it is purely aesthetic

Leg Waxing for Men

Why do cyclists wax their legs? Here are some of the reasons:

  • It looks great and lets you show off your diamond-cut calves
  • It makes post-ride massage easier, less painful and more pleasurable

  • It makes cleaning and treating wounds easier and speeds up healing

  • It makes you faster because it's more aerodynamic than hairy legs

it's senseless to ignore the slight but real advantage of having bare legs

(To wit, a 1987 study conducted by Chester Kyle for this magazine concluded that the aerodynamic improvement is roughly 0.6 percent, which could result in a savings of around 5 seconds in a 40km time trial ridden at 37kph.)
