Over the years i noticed that some people wear plastics underneath their clothes when they run or exercise in any way. How does this help?

Hi Lolo,

This can be contingent for some individuals...

The idea behind it is to retain heat, retain energy and loss more calories.

I wouldnt advise doing it, especially in hot and humid conditions.
