Compression Benefits

The Benefits of Sports Compression Clothing

A Compression Base Layer has three main functions in acting on the body:

Base Layer garments Regulate body temperature, Compress core muscles and aid Recovery.  They are not simply for top athletes though.  Performance base layers benefit everyone, from the supreme athlete to the occasional fell walker.

Compression Base Layers are state-of-the-art garments designed to regulate body temperature and reduce the build-up of lactic acid by compressing the muscles before during and after physical exercise.  Scientists have shown that in reducing the build up of lactic acid during and following exertion, an athlete’s recovery rate is greatly enhanced and their susceptibility to injury greatly reduced.

By compressing the muscle groups during and after exercise, you are also helping to protect them from potential damage and thereby making your athletic performance better.

Combine this compression with suitable materials designed to eliminate moisture, eradicate or retain body heat and you have the basis of what is termed Technical Apparel which is designed to provide the wearer with a dry, comfortable solution to their exercise needs in whatever climate or condition they may find themselves in.
