THE POWER OF HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPRESSION!
Compression has been used in the medical industry for 150 years, however it is only in recent times that people have become aware of the advantages and performance benefits of wearing compression garments during and after exercise.
Extensive research now proves that compression garments offer a range of benefits which lead to increased performance and body function.
- Faster warm up and enhanced overall circulation
- Graduated compression of the limbs actively encourages and increases venous return to the heart and lymph to the lymph nodes
- Therapeutic rated fabric provides greater pressure and recovery benefit by helping the pumping action of the cardiovascular system: removing blood lactate from exercising muscles leading to faster muscle repair
- Heightened proprioception increases senses and awareness for enhanced stability and agility
- Proprioception can also help with improved technique as you remain aware of your body’s positioning, improving the balance control system and muscle coordination
- During exercise, your muscles are exposed to forces that cause vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue, known as muscle oscillation, can be reduced when wearing compression garments. This leads to improved muscle endurance, strength and power
- 2XU Compression features muscle containment properties which reduce muscle damage. By reducing muscle damage during exercise and minimizing swelling post-exercise, 2XU Compression can significantly reduce the severity and duration of exercise induced muscle injury and soreness such as Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)
This 2XU Calf Guard + Stirrup targets the calf muscle - a major driver in venous return from your lower body, calf guards can be worn under your existing game day socks or used simply as a recovery tool.
With similar benefits to compression tights but in a smaller package, Calf Guards improve circulation and protect against leg fatigue and muscle soreness.
Essential training and recovery tool for people who need extra support through their calf region.
Available with a foot stirrup for sports demanding shin protection or when support for the Achilles region is required.
