Compression shorts help to reduce muscle fatigue, prevent strain, lower your risk for delayed onset muscle soreness, improved perceived exertion (making training more bearable for longer), help increase power, increase oxygenation and provide comfort while minimising wind resistance. (For guys, they also give a little extra groin support)
Compression Tights & Leggings
Compression tights and leggings give all the benefits of compression short together with graduated support around the ankles to help venous return (the flow of blood back to the heart), plus support around the knees and quads – typically troublesome areas for runners.
If it's too hot for tights or leggings, compression socks boost blood flow and help to reduce muscle oscillation from the ankle to the calf helping you to recover faster.
Compression tops help adjust your posture, opening up the chest area to allow you to take in more oxygen. For ladies with fuller busts compression tops can add additional support over your sports bra.
