SKINS Half Tights wrap the muscle bellies in the quads and glutes; in doing this, they help reduce the muscle vibrations that cause energy loss from impact. Above all, SKINS Half Tights assist with blood circulation, meaning more blood is being oxygenated, thus delivering oxygen to the working muscles. The increased circulation also helps battle waste products like lactic acid, and that’s the stuff that causes muscle soreness.
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 SKINS Half Tights graduated compression, it accelerates the flow through pressure graduation.
Applying random 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 Half Tights work because they apply the maximum pressure furthest away from the heart, decreasing as it moves up the leg.
