Compression Shorts

    What are the benefits of compression shorts?
    Some say the supportive fabric helps reduce muscle fatigue. The compression support can also help prevent muscle strains or aid in recovery from one.

    There are advantages, too, in the sleek fit. Compression shorts stay in place during workouts, making them ideal for weight training as well as cardio. Men’s and women’s activewear companies now offer compression shorts for a range of activities, from powerlifting to volleyball.

    Compression running shorts offer less friction even over long distances. Add a great pair of women’s or men’s athletic sneakers and watch the miles fly by. Compression bike shorts create less wind resistance as you pedal down the trails.

    What Started the Compression Trend?
    Compression clothing appeared more than a decade ago after a medical company created compression socks designed to help prevent blood clots by improving circulation.  

    Athletes quickly began realizing the training benefits of compression shorts. That’s when compression technology made the leap to men’s activewear and women’s workout gear.

    These days, compression shorts, bike shorts and leggings are on everyone’s list of active essentials, along with comfortable athletic sneakers for women and men and breathable tops.

    How Should Compression Shorts Fit?
    Many brands offer countless designs and fits for all body types. Compression shorts should be a little tough to put on, but not impossible. Look for tight legs and posterior, but not so snug that you feel like circulation is cut off. The waist should stay in place through bending and lunging.
