Compression Tights: Do They Actually Work?
A couple of years ago, compression tights moved out of their professional-sport pigeon hole and became a high-tech workout product that everyone had access to. The idea behind compression gear is this: targeted compression improves blood flow. Improved blood flow sends more oxygen to the muscles. Well-oxygenated muscles work harder, better, faster, stronger. Bonus: you also recover quicker.
But is that all just PR spin? We asked a couple of experts for their take on the workout gear: does it actually work? Is it worth your money? And can you get the same benefits another way? We also asked for some evidence from the people behind Skins Australia — read on to find out what they have to say, then shop our top compression gear picks below.
