Compression is all the rage these days when it comes to fitness. But what IS compression? Well, compression gear is designed to apply specific levels of pressure to whatever part of your body you're wearing it. The pressure can help the contraction direction of your muscle fibers which can make your body more efficient and can reduce vibrations which is less traumatic to your muscles and makes them less fatigued. One of the most well known brands of compression gear is Tommie Copper. Tommie Copper sleeves and apparel are actually designed to be worn all day long. The 4 directional compression helps muscles recover and gives relief from everyday aches and pains.
All of Tommie Copper's products contain CopperZnergy fabric which is infused with copper and zinc. CopperZnergy eliminates odors caused by microbes on the fabric and gives UPF 50+ protection from the sun!
The Shaping Compression Legging has a contoured design that is very flattering. It smooths and shapes and the compression is at the waist, butt, thigh and knee. These leggings are so supportive and I love the higher waistband. They are also very breathable and I love the hidden key/phone pocket.
I feel like I have better form when I wear Tommie Copper Compression gear and afterwards my muscles don't feel so shredded and destroyed.
Have you guys ever worn compression gear? What did you think?
