Your Contour Shapewear: Upgrading performance with Compression Garments

Stretch! Bend! Sweat!

Let’s face it, it is disheartening when, after all the stretching, bending and sweating the result you see is unsatisfactory. Maybe, it is time to get help from a friend, the compression garment. So, what are compression garments? According to scienceforsports.com, “compression garments are tight, compressive forms of clothing, often made out of elastin and nylon, which are designed to enhance recovery”. In addition to that, experts say it could also enhance the performance of athletes and fitness aficionados. Socks, legs, sleeves and tights are just a few examples of compression garments. Often people undergoing body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks use compression garments, but nowadays they are becoming a ‘gym buddy’.

Here are five benefits of compression garments:

1. Better performance :

Muscle oxygenation is crucial when exercising. Fortunately, the heart and the blood get the job done. According to experts, using compression garments while exercising accelerates the oxygenation process. The faster the blood moves; the quicker for the muscle to receive oxygen and nutrients. Consequently, once muscles are oxygenated, the body performs up to par and for a longer period.

2. Improves recovery :

According to Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist Dr. Ian Gillam, using compression garment is the closest to getting an iced bath. Gillam says, “There’s no doubt that it (compression garment) improves recovery for athletes and anybody that exercises intensely will get the same benefits because if they’re working really hard then it’s going to help them improve their recovery”. If it helps, why not try it, right?

3. Extra support :

When exercising, one cannot avoid moving vigorously. Unfortunately, excessive movement causes muscle pains or injuries. Ergo, wearing a compression garment is the answer. It compresses or tightens the muscles, thus stabilizing them. Performance gets boosted to a new level and muscle toning or building is also achieved faster.

4. Go for Cooler:

Compression garments are breathable garments due to its unique pattern as well as the materials used – nylon and spandex. The unique pattern minimizes moisture (sweat) from sticking to the body, making the garment lighter. All in all, this garment is far more superior to cotton made sports attire.

5. Lesser pain :

In doing exercise routines, pain is the name of the game. Some folks tend to give up on account of body aches. Compression garments like tights can help ease post-exercise aches. Exercise scientist Jessica Hills says, “When compression garments are worn during and after heavy exercise, they appear to reduce muscle soreness”. Furthermore, according to studies, compression garments can expedite the recovery time from muscle soreness. Keep in mind, the garment will only help ease the pain; muscle aches are always felt when the body moves a great deal.

Sometimes, improving the contour is a challenge. One needs discipline, determination as well as patience. For some, it’s a long and rocky path. Never give up! Remember what they say – no pain, no gain! Use effective tools – like compression garments – to achieve the dream.
