Sports tights should be worn when running, and are generally worn during long-term endurance exercises. The main purpose is to improve athletic performance and promote recovery after exercise. In addition, it has the functions of stabilizing muscles, preventing thigh friction, promoting perspiration or heat preservation, sun protection, preventing venous thrombosis of the lower limbs during long journeys, and brightening.
The main principle is that the pressure generated by the compression underwear helps to accelerate the blood flow back to the heart and reduce the heart rate (experiments have shown that it can reduce about 0.8bpm), just like a person soaking in a swimming pool, the pressure of water on the body will reduce the heart rate. Therefore, everything related to the acceleration of blood flow back to the heart has become the advertised benefits of the compression garment library, such as increasing the oxygen supply rate of the blood to the muscles, accelerating the decomposition of lactic acid, reducing swelling, accelerating recovery and so on. However, the actual effect is not clear, and it mainly depends on personal subjective feelings.
In addition to compression, well-designed compression pants will be tailored and fabric selection according to the leg structure to provide different degrees of support and protection. For example, stronger elasticity will be used to strengthen and stabilize the Achilles tendon, quadriceps and other easily injured parts, and the patella will be loosely cut, which is conducive to the movement of the knee joint during running.
In summary, the benefits of wearing compression pants added together may bring about an improvement in sports performance and play a role in icing on the cake.
