    Compression clothing has been proven to improve athlete performance before, during and after activity through improved circulation, muscle containment and reduced muscle vibration. Next Slide

  • PRE EXERCISE

    PRE EXERCISE

    1. IMPROVES CIRCULATION FOR FASTER WARM UP

    Graduated compression increases blood circulation to the heart and lymph nodes for a faster, safer warm up period before exercise or competitions. Next Slide

  • During Exercise

    During Exercise

    1. REDUCES MUSCLE FATIGUE & DAMAGE

    Contains the muscle to reduce vibration, minimize damage and overall fatigue during exercise to enhance output.

    2. HEIGHTENS AGILITY

    Applied pressure to the skin surface increases sensory awareness for improved posture, agility, mobility and stability.

    3. IMPROVES PERFORMANCE

    Heightened circulation, muscle oxygenation and less fatigue increases power and lowers heart rate for enhanced performance overall.Next Slide

  • POST EXERCISE

    POST EXERCISE

    1. FASTER RECOVERY

    Graduated pressure shortens the recovery cycle through heightened pumping action of the cardiovascular system.

    2. DECREASES SORENESS

    Efficient removal of blood lactate from muscles to reduce swelling, speed muscle repair & reduce soreness.

    3. PROTECTION FROM EDEMA & BLOOD CLOTS

    Through heightened blood circulation, 2XU Compression helps reduce swelling in feet and ankles and lowers the risk of blood clots, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
