THE BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION SPORTSWEAR
Whatever your sport, SKINS Compression Sportswear helps you be the best athlete you can be.
Constructed for both men and women, they merge our best compression technology with durable high-tech fabrics to support and stabilise your lower leg. This helps reduce the risk of injury, optimise comfort and assist in recovery.
When we exercise, oxygen has a harder time making its way around our bodies. With the reduction of oxygen, our bodies start to produce lactate which is turned into energy. However, our bodies often overproduce lactate which is what leads to muscle soreness. Compression Sportswear helps increase the flow of oxygen through the body, which picks up the lactic acid build-up on its way and reduces muscle soreness. If there's swelling, compression helps constrict the amount of blood and other fluids to the affected area; we don't want a build-up of fluids there! In short, Compression Sportswear helps speed up recovery, whether it's general muscle soreness and fatigue or swelling from an injury.
We keep talking about the flow of oxygen to the muscles, but studies have shown that it's the key to delaying the onset of fatigue and the longer you can go, the better! Not only that, Compression Sportswear helps with performance by stabilising the muscles. When we're exercising, our muscles move and vibrate, which increases instability and the risk of injury. By keeping the muscles (expertly) wrapped, we reduce those risks, and we're able to perform better.
