What’s so great about compression clothing?
What are the benefits of wearing compression tights and shirts? Let’s look at some of the top reasons why compression clothing is such useful, comfortable, and versatile garments to wear in all types of situations. You’ll be amazed at what you can do with them!
Benefits for Runners
How do compression tights help? They help by improving blood flow and increasing oxygen flow to your muscles. You can think of them as an extra layer of clothing for your legs, only they’re much more effective. That said, compression tights won’t magically make you faster overnight; but with repeated use (ideally three times per week) you should see improved performance over time.
First-time users often notice an increase in their endurance and stamina as well as reduced muscle soreness after exercise or training. Both are signs that your body is benefiting from increased circulation—not just during your workout, but long afterward too. Some runners also swear that compression gear helps reduce anxiety and stress; there’s no hard scientific proof behind it yet. In any case, science aside, many people say wearing compression makes a noticeable difference. What about recovery periods between workouts? Research has shown runners who wear compression garments during, and post-workout have found a reduction in soreness and muscle fatigues which helps them speed their recovery process. What we do know is that inflexible muscles take longer to recover. With continual wear, both strength training and running will involve less muscle strain, making daily life easier once you stop exercising. Studies have also found athletes recovered quicker after intense workouts when they wore high-tech garments compared to when they didn’t!
Benefits for Everyday Athletes
If you’re an athlete, whether professional or casual, there are several benefits to wearing compression tights that can help your performance daily. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or practicing at a competitive level, it helps if your muscles stay healthy and well-nourished. While you should always consult with your doctor before making any decisions, compression tights may be just what you need to help you with your recovery process while staying fit. They help get the oxygen-rich blood pumping through our veins while reducing swelling in our joints after a workout. It takes little time to notice improvements; within days, you could feel stronger than ever! Whether you use them every day or just during strenuous exercise, they’ll take your game to new heights!
Benefits for Non-Athletes
Once you’ve had a look at all these benefits for athletes, it can be hard to see why you would want to wear compression tights, but there are plenty of non-athletic reasons that someone might consider wearing them as well. Consider how many hours you spend in front of a computer each day. If your job requires you to sit down for extended periods, your back may thank you for using support. You probably also experience discomfort on public transportation—not just from sitting still and being jostled around, but also from your shoes being constricted. And just like walking around long distances with heavy bags doesn’t feel great on athletic legs, carrying loads of groceries home with normal pants is uncomfortable. In all these cases, compression tights could provide relief and make everyday life more comfortable!
