DISCOVER THE SCIENCE: ARM SLEEVES
SKINS Arm Sleeves are perfect for wearing with a tank or short sleeve top when it’s a bit warmer out. When you wear the sleeves, your forearm and bicep muscle bellies are wrapped with our intelligent compression, which reduces the muscle vibrations that cause energy loss thanks to impact and movement.
Just like all our compression sportswear, SKINS Arm Sleeves assist with blood circulation, meaning an increase in oxygenated blood, delivering oxygen to the working muscles. This is important because it means you can work harder and more efficiently. And if that’s not enough, the assisted circulation from our compression technology helps dissipate waste products such as lactic acid. The stuff that makes your muscles sore after exercise.
When you look at your body, you’ll notice the darker, blue veins near the surface of the skin. The darker veins are the ones bringing used blood back to the heart for oxygenation and renewal. When pressure is applied to these veins with the SKINS graduated compression, it accelerates the flow through pressure graduation.
Applying random, unregulated pressure won’t help. You need to apply the right pressure to the right area. Too much pressure in the wrong place can create circulation issues and impede performance. SKINS Arm Sleeves work because they apply the maximum pressure furthest away from the heart, decreasing as it moves up the arm.
If you’re a runner or partake in a lot of dynamic movement and ball sports, then Arm Sleeves are for you.
