Expect sports tights, many seamless leggings manufacturers also provide compression leggings, which are similar in appearance to tights. But the biggest benefit of compression leggings is that they provide more pressure than tights. Now go through the passage to see the compression leggings benefits.
What is compression pants used for:
Compression pants were originally used as an auxiliary method to treat symptoms such as blood clots in deep blood vessels by promoting blood circulation. Later, doctors have since discovered that the benefits of compression equipment can also be beneficial to patients who are bedridden for a long time as well as lack exercise.
How compression pants work: The pressure they generate helps to increase blood flow and reduce heart rate (by about 0.8 BPM in some experiments), just as water pressure on the body slows heart rate in a swimming pool.
Benefits of compression pants for running or other exercises?
1. Full oxygen supply
Compression leggings exert the right amount of pressure on different body parts to promote blood circulation, improve oxygen supply to muscles, improve muscle stability, increase strength, reduce muscle fatigue and reduce the risk of injury.
2. Muscles supporting
The extra pressure provided by compression leggings wraps and supports key motor muscles, helping to reduce muscle vibration and making exercise more efficient and moves more agile.
Scientific experiments have proved that proper compressibility has certain benefits for human muscles. Compression leggings make running more agile. While running, muscles will vibrate up and down, which may cause your muscles to sore. The compression leggings provide muscle support. Reduce the amount your muscles vibrate up and down. Thus reducing muscle lactic acid accumulation. Allows you to cover more distance in the same amount of time.
3. Body recovery
Compression leggings can increase muscle group vitality, accelerate the excretion of body metabolites in muscles, reduce lactic acid accumulation, and promote the body to recover in a short time. Compression leggings can not only promote human recovery after exercise, stabilize muscles, prevent thigh rubbing, but also promote sweat insulation sun.
Most importantly, it can prevent the formation of blood clots in the veins of the lower limbs caused by the human body suddenly stopping after exercise. Not only that, but they also generate stress, which helps speed up blood flow and lowers heart rate, reducing swelling and increasing the amount of oxygen provided by the blood to the muscles. As a result, many athletes often wear compression underwear to help their bodies recover after a competition.
4. Provide breathability
Although the compression pants are very tight, they are breathable yet. Many compression pants are designed to circulate air and help wearers stay cool while exercising.
5. Improve flexibility
Compression pants can help mobilize the muscles for those who focus on strength exercise. It allows you to easily feel the movement of the target muscle, which makes your actions more flexible.
In cold or windy weather, it protects the skin from cold air, and some leggings have an extra layer for the thighs and knees.
In summer, sweat can be discharged quickly, avoiding discomfort caused by the accumulation of sweat on the body surface.
In winter, it prevents sweat from being carried away from the body surface when drying by the cold wind.
8. Provide comfort
Compression pants have pressure on some body parts, but they are cut to fit better and have less friction. which gives you a sense of comfort.
9. Keep the optimum temperature
Because of the fabric used, compressed clothes generally are of good perspiration and quick-drying characteristics, which can quickly export and evaporate the sweat on the skin surface. To achieve the effect of cooling heat by accelerating the process of sweating, which keeps the skin in a relatively dry condition.
10. Release fatigue
Some studies have shown that athletes and people who fly for long periods of time experience less soreness after wearing compression suits. Scientists at Exeter University have done an experiment to test muscle soreness after heavy centrifugal strength exercises, which are more likely to cause muscle soreness.
They found that participants who wore compression suits for 24 hours after exercise not only had better strength test results but also felt less muscle soreness subjectively, which shows that compression plays an important role in reducing fatigue.
11. Better exercise effect
Compression leggings aim to transport more blood and oxygen to the muscles by squeezing the blood vessels. This allows oxygen and energy substances to enter the muscles faster, meanwhile helping metabolic waste and carbon dioxide to exclude the muscles faster.
In theory, this could help increase energy production efficiency and allow runners to run faster.
12. Reduce injury
For high-explosive projects, the benefit of wearing compression pants is to reduce the risk of injury to some extent.
