In an article published by Outside, PRO Compression responds to Andy Potts’ methods for keeping his body in peak condition.

On February 20, 2013, PRO Compression responds to a recent article from Outside on Andy Potts, the fastest American finisher in last year’s Ironman World Championship.

Potts is reported to be constantly looking for little ways to improve his health and remain a competitor. Constantly competing and training for triathlons, the article claims that Potts looks for any edge he can get.

Although the article cites that Potts is 36-years-old, the athlete says he recommends eating like a little kid. “If you watch young children, they eat whenever they’re hungry and stop when they’re full. They never overeat. Eating that way helps with sustained energy”.

The article states that Potts stays away from alcohol and attempts to get 11 hours of sleep every night. Potts added that he also goes biking and skiing from time to time. He claims that the muscles used during biking are similar to the ones used during skiing.

But that’s not the only detail he focuses on. In the article Potts said he is a big proponent of compression socks. “Wearing them helps push blood back to the heart, where it can become more oxygenated,” he explains. Potts also recommends wearing shoes that are a half-size too big when running, since feet will likely swell.

Eric Smith, the CEO of graduated compression sock manufacturer PRO Compression, comments on the use of graduated compression socks for athletes. “Graduated compression socks are great for promoting circulation in the feet while a runner is on the move or looking to cool down. As a result, I’m confident that graduated compression socks can help a runner to keep going during a long run and keep them feeling energized.”

Unlike countless gimmicks that claim to improve your performance, with PRO Compression socks, the instant, positive improvement isn’t an empty promise – it’s purely scientific.
