Whether you’re someone who races competitively, or someone is hustling from work to swim meets and everything in between, we are exhausted by the end of the day. Our daily grind sometimes puts our body through more than it can handle. Compression is a tool that they can speed up that recovery process. When the grind is every day, we don’t have time to wait to feel better.
Compression is not just for the performance driven, but it’s for everybody who wants his or her body to work as well as it can.
True compression accelerates the removal of metabolic waste products in the blood stream, while simultaneously refueling muscles with oxygen and nutrients. Graduated compression will have the highest level of compression at the ankle while reducing the level of compression as it goes up the leg. This improves blood circulation and gets oxygen-rich blood to the muscles quicker.
Targeted compression reduces the muscle vibration that will more quickly lead to fatigue.
Our DC and Vienna manager first starting using compression during persistent battles with shin splints, which he admittedly tried running through. He then looked towards CEP Compression “because it allows me the freedom to run more, recover faster, all while increasing performance and protecting me from injury in the process.” He cannot think of another product offering that reaps as many rewards, and all you have to do is simply put it on and run.
Used properly, compression has been linked to better overall performance and quicker recovery processes. Visit any of our Potomac River Running locations or online and learn more about the compression products we carry!
