Every revolution has one begining
History  The beginning of the revolution

The Elastikpant or Training Pants (as it is registered in the patent in the Spanish speaking countries) has its origins in my graduation thesis for the Sports University Manuel Fajardo in the City of Havana, Cuba in 2006 under the tutoring of Pedro Ignacio Gato Cruz, my coach, mentor and friend, from whom many years before that I had the privilege and unique opportunity of learning a lot from his experience. Pedro Gato was a true genius of the Sport Specific Training Methodology (already a Sport Master on Physical Preparation at this time and on his way to get the Doctorate degree in Physical Preparation and Sports Methodology). He was also a great influence in my whole athletic career as well as in my life. Pedro’s exceptional way of combining biomechanics with the laws of mathematics and physics, was very impressive as well as his constant emphasis on making training very specific, always under the premise of ‘the most specific the training method is, the most effective and higher the results of the physical activity would be’. The Elastikpant is based under this same concept, since it allows not only Combat Sports but also other disciplines as well as non professional sportspersons to improve the quality of their workout, to get a greater physical efficiency, an increase in calorie burning and therefore a quick and easy weight loss. After filing the patent and becoming registered, the project entered the practical part by the middle of 2016. After testing a variety of prototypes, different problems appeared in the functionality of the pants since the manufacturers did not understand all the complex details that the simple invention brought with it. The complexity was in combining the simple details in order to achieve the functionality for what Elastikpant was designed. Once it was possible to obtain a final prototype pant that met all the required features, we began to make scientific tests in different Universities and Olympic centres in Germany (where I will later on begin a Master Degree in Sport Biomechanics). The evaluations were both from a physiological point of view as well as from a sports point of view, showing very positive results; starting from biomechanics analysis together with blood lactate tests, to evaluate and analyse all the vectors and positions in which the Elastikpant maintained the force against the movements executed by the athlete, strengthening the muscles involved. After having worked 3 years in the project, only a month and a half after having obtained the final prototype Pant, a great loss occurred in our small and young team, the sudden death of the Master in Sports Methodology Pedro Gato in February 2017. His decease was an impact for the Sports World and by all means for our is team an indescribable and irreparable loss. A healthy, strong, athletic, and young man who was very friendly and highly appreciated especially among Athletes around the world. The Elastikpant was created and designed to be a tool that could finally give a new face to the specificity of sports training, which in fact is as it said Pedro Gato: “It is in training where medals are won”.
