Should I wear compression socks while exercising?
If you’ve ever asked yourself this question, the answer is: Yes! Wearing compression socks or sleeves during and post-workout will help increase your blood circulation to support your muscles during training and help them recover faster.
Compression socks and sleeves have become most popular among long-distance runners and triathletes but have now found enthusiasts in many different disciplines. Look around and you’ll see them on all kinds of athletes, from high school football players to Olympic gold medalists.
Whether you train regularly or workout occasionally, you too can benefit from wearing compression socks both during your training and in your post-workout recovery!
Increase blood circulation during training
During intense training or sports activities, compression socks will help reduce the vibration for greater endurance and will help bring oxygen-rich blood to your hard-working muscles!
Ease post-workout soreness
In the recovery period, the constant compression helps to decrease inflammation and swelling, as well as preventing lactic acid build-up to ease post-workout soreness.
