Stay Educated about the Benefits of 2XU Compression
Why Do Athletes Wear Compression?
1. Muscle Containment
2. Increased Blood Flow
Let the education begin. First point, Muscle Containment. 2XU compression wear keeps the muscle closer to the skeletal system to protect from injury and ensure efficient muscle use. It reduces muscle vibration which helps eliminate muscle micro tears that can cause injuries, improves muscle alignment for increased power and finally, increases endurance by reducing muscle fatigue.
Second point, Increased Blood Flow. Medically graduated compression improves blood flow back to the heart and increases venous return and arterial blood flow of re-oxygenated blood back to the muscles. It flushes lactic acid and metabolic waste from muscles and regulates body temperature.
Third, Proprioception. What does that mean? From Latin proprius, meaning "one's own", "individual," and capio, capere, to take or grasp, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement. Ok, so what does that mean to the athlete? It raises awareness of posture in space, heightens alertness and agility, Increases postural support and sensory awareness resulting in faster reaction, quicker foot strikes.
