What is compression?
When it comes to compression, there is a lot of hype and a lot of myths. So let us take a minute to debunk some of those myths and get to the bottom of what compression is and what it does and doesn’t do.
Some will claim that it increases your performance which is not true. You won’t jump higher, run faster, or perform better.
However, what it will do is increases blood flow and enhance circulation both two positives for overall health. Post workout it will aid in the clearing of metabolic waste aiding in recovery and getting you ready to hit it again.
Two types of compression, what is the difference?
There are two schools of thought when it comes to compression. The first being warp knit and the second being circular knit.
Wrap knit is known for its use within the medical arena. It is great when it comes to providing compression. However, it does not have any natural stretch in it. In fact, too much “medical grade” compression can be harmful during exercise. That is why it is important to make sure that when buying compression for training that you purchase circular knit.
Circular knit as the name eludes to provides a circular 360-degree compression. This style of compression has natural stretch which provides a massaging effect and for some maybe the most important quality it doesn’t flatten out your hard earned curves.
