No matter what type of workout you enjoy most, whether it's running, gym,
COMPRESSION GEAR FOR PERFORMANCE
One study conducted on the group of six runners reported that those runners who wore compression socks experienced a reduction of nearly 26 percent in their VO2max slow component (a fairly complicated training term that is basically a measure of your oxygen uptake after you have reached your lactate threshold).
However, a study on the ability of compression gear to improve lactic acid clearance or to prevent lactic acid accumulation demonstrated that compression actually raises blood lactate accumulation. The researchers hypothesized that this unexpected rise in blood lactate was likely from a greater overall contribution of anaerobic respiration. So, while compression gear won’t directly improve your lactate clearance, it will allow you to run
COMPRESSION GEAR FOR RECOVERY
Compression socks were first touted as a recovery tool for athletes after demonstrating increased blood flow for patients with circulation issues. The prevailing thought was that the graduated compression in the calves helped facilitate blood flow to deliver nutrients to the muscles and prevent swelling.
Use of compression
As a result, athletes are expected to experience less soreness, edema and faster recovery in the days after exercise.
BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION SHIRTS AND TIGHTS/LEGGINGS FOR WORKOUTS
- It keeps the muscles warm to prevent muscle strain
- It wicks sweat away from the body to prevent chafing and rashes
- Helping relieve pain from muscle stiffness and soreness
- Reducing the time taken for muscles to repair themselves
- When the right amount of compression is used (will vary depending on
, typically in the range of 10 to 25 body area ), improving venous return and oxygenation to working muscles mmHg
