Health & Fitness: Top Benefits of Wearing Compression Clothing


Compression clothing has gained widespread attention in recent years for their many health benefits. These clothes are often worn by athletes and people with certain medical conditions who find them useful. Here are some of the main benefits of wearing compression clothing.

Improved Circulation

Compression clothing, like that from Capsule Corp Clothing, improves blood circulation by applying constant pressure to certain muscle groups. The increase in circulation can enhance athletic performance by supplying the muscles with more blood and removing toxins. Better blood flow can also help with recovery following a workout. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other dangerous blood clots can further be prevented when blood flow is increased. Such clothing can be especially useful in increasing blood circulation.

Reduced Inflammation and Swelling

The pressure that compression clothing applies to muscles can prevent swelling and inflammation while playing sports. The squeezing action can prevent fluid buildups around muscles and joints. Any excessive fluid can be reabsorbed by the body better when compression clothes are worn. Men’s Journal states that compression socks and tops are particularly good at reducing swelling and inflammation caused by activities like weightlifting and long-distance running. Compression clothes are also sometimes used to reduce inflammation and swelling caused by medical conditions like lymphedema or following surgery.

Muscle Warmth

Keeping the muscles warm is important during workouts, and compression gear can help with this. According to, this type of clothing provides an extra layer of warmth that can keep athletes’ muscles from getting cold during early-morning workouts. Keeping the muscles warm is one of the best ways to prevent soreness and cramping. Warmer muscles also have less chances of becoming injured. The additional warmth provided to certain muscle groups may even increase endurance. Compression garments can provide maximum comfort while warming up and doing practice drills.

Improved Athletic Technique

Compression gear can even improve the way an athlete engages in sports and help with athletic performance. Pacing is known to improve in some sprinters who wear compression clothing. An athlete may notice an improvement in gait while wearing compression leggings. This type of clothing can also reinforce good posture. Compression clothing is known to reduce muscle fatigue, which may further enhance proper athletic technique.

Many people have experienced numerous advantages with compression clothing. Whether this type of clothing is worn for athletic or medical purposes, compression gear can address many issues that affect the body. If you’re worried about how compression clothing can fit in with your style, know that there are tons of styles out there for you to choose from. If you’re into anime, for example, there are Dragon Ball Z compression clothes that you could where if you wanted to. Whatever your style is, there’s definitely something out there for you.

Skins RY400 Recovery Long Tights and Long Sleeve Top

Some time ago Skins reached out to me and wanted to send me both tights and a top. I did some research on their products and agreed. Not only because I am a competitive athlete but I am a strong believer in recovery; recovery is very crucial when you put your body through high intensity training. If you are not fully recovering between workouts you will peak and not be able to perform at your best.

After reading up about the benefits of Skins recovery leggings and long sleeve top I figured I would give them a try. After my workout I through on my leggings and long sleeve shirt, skins recommends that you wear your recovery clothes for a minimum of 3 hours after your exercise allowing you to circulate blood faster feeding your muscles more oxygen.

The next day I did notice what I wasn’t as sore as I typically would be. As for comfort level the leggings were super flexible, and the elasticity was durable and held up making it easier by not having to constantly pull up. The long sleeve shirt sat perfectly around my neck and wasn’t too high as some long sleeves are. I definitely recommend Skins recovery line to any athlete to help speed up recovery.

All4Fit Leggings Review

Recently All4Fit sent me a pair of leggings to try and for review. I found that the All4Fit leggings are very comfortable for both exercising in and lounging around. During my workout I found the material super breathable, which made them perfect for when I do my cardio sessions. More over, the elasticity over time started to stretch as the day went on making it very annoying to have to constantly be pulling up my leggings. The leggings were not see through which is amazing and very difficult to find now in days.

All4Fit offers many varieties of leggings with funky designs, colors and patterns. They offer a sizing chart on there website so you order your size the first time. I love that they offer 2 types of materials polyamide, which hides that stubborn cellulite, and polyester, which is super breathable throughout your workout. I definitely would recommend these leggings to anyone who wants to stand out in a crowd with funky designs.

SPIbelt - Keep All Of Your Personal Items On You While You Train - A Review

Now that the weather is breaking and a lot of us are planning to shift out workouts from outside to inside. But working out outside brings its challenges. One of the most inconvenient of them is not being able to carry everything that you need without a backpack or feeling and hearing your items like your keys, phone and maybe carbs flopping in your pockets. I know I also tend to worry about dropping something or something slipping out during my run. That's why I decided to look into SPIbelt and give it a try.

What drew me was the fact that I would be able to carry everything I needed without the stress or annoyance that usually comes a long with it. The SPIbelt had enough room in it to fit my keys, phone and money. I loved the way everything fit so snug and secure. I was able to try it out on a hike and it didn't disappoint! I liked it so much, that I carried it to the gym with me to help me keep up with everything and I really liked it.

We've all tried fanny packs but not only are hey not really cute, but I always have a problem with them riding up. I didn't have this problem at all with the SPIbelt.

If you're into being active outdoors, I would suggest the SPIbelt. You might even like it at the gym if you don't have access to a locker.

Try it out. I got mine from
