Post-workout recovery is a top benefit of using compression gear...

On April 19, 2013, PRO Compression, designer of compression socks, comments on an article published by The Scotsman that looks into the correlation of the improvement of athlete efficiencies and the advancement of sports clothing.
The recent article, published on The Scotsman’s website, discusses how cutting-edge sports clothing is contributing to athletes’ progressive successes, milestones, records, etc. According to the article, the new changes being incorporated into today’s sportswear fall under six types: lighter, drier, faster, stronger, cooler or warmer.
David Ayers, who heads the product team at Under Armour’s Headquarters, acknowledges compression sports gear as being one of the top contributors to improved athletic performance. “The basic benefits of compression are around power and recovery,” he explains. “There’s one aspect that reduces muscle vibration, so it’s actually keeping the muscle groups in place and making them more efficient. Then there’s the recovery aspect, where the pressure means your body can recover more efficiently. To boil it down to a simple phrase, it keeps you stronger for longer.”
The article goes on to say that although independent evidence on performance may be inconclusive, compression has been proven to help prevent post-workout muscle stiffness.
Eric Smith, CEO of PRO Compression, a company that makes compression socks designed for endurance athletes, recognizes post-workout recovery as a benefit of compression gear but also highlights some of the additional benefits. “Post-workout recovery is a top benefit of using compression gear. In addition to this, compression sportswear can also treat various circulatory conditions, increase blood flow to reduce cramping and improve athletic performance overall.”
