Faster warm up and enhanced overall circulation. Graduated compression of the limbs actively encourages and increases venous return to the heart and lymph nodes.
Deep Vein Thrombosis is a condition that mainly affects the lower body and is typically associated with long periods of travel or inactivity. 2XU Compression garments can enhance blood flow in these areas through enhanced venous return, reducing the risk of DVT and swelling in ankles and limbs.
2XU Compression features muscle containment properties which reduce muscle damage during exercise. By reducing muscle damage, 2XU Compression garments can minimize swelling post exercise and can significantly reduce the severity and duration of exercise induced muscle injury and soreness such as Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
During exercise, your muscles are exposed to vibration. This major cause of muscle fatigue,known as muscle oscillation can be reduced when wearing 2XU Compression garments. This leads to improved muscle endurance, strength, power output and lower heart rate for greater performance.
2XU Compression applies pressure to the skin surface to increase the body’s awareness for improved posture, agility and stability (proprioception). Heightened proprioception can help improve technique as an improved sense of your body’s positioning can increase balance, control and muscle coordination.
2XU Compression garments boasts a UPF sun protection rating of 50+ to offer maximum protection during outdoor training and competition. 2XU Compression fabrics wick moisture from the skin to keep the wearer dry and comfortable. 2XU Compression garments are also embedded with an antibacterial, odour resistant application to help minimize odour and prevent bacterial growth.
By offering graduated pressure, 2XU Compression garments work to improve the recovery cycle by helping the pumping action of the cardiovascular system; removing blood lactate from exercising muscles leading reduced swelling, faster muscle repair and reduction in muscle soreness.
