With the support of studies and various player endorsements, base layer compression clothing is now seen as an essential item of clothing for any serious athlete.
It is easy to be distracted by the scientific jargon behind any compression clothing but the simple concept remains true throughout, to aid recovery via enhancing circulation and the increase of oxygen delivered to your active muscles. Whether this is in your arms or legs, there is a piece of compression clothing to suit your strenuous sporting demands at any level.
All athletes want to recover as quickly as possible, without placing further stress and damage on their muscles. Base layer compression clothing assists with the physical demands put upon your body during training, competing and recovery.
Leading brands which specialise in base layer compression clothing include Canterbury, Skins, 2XU and Under Armour whilst sports industry giants Nike and Adidas have also utilised their expertise to launch a series of collections. At the high end of the base layer compression market are Canterbury’s Mercury base layers, Skins A400 Series and 2XU’s compression range, each with their own innovative technology to help increase recovery during and after exercise.
With a base layer compression garment to suit all parts of the body, if you don’t already own a piece then prepare yourself for an optimum sporting experience. The only bad news for you is no more excuses about prolonged recovery time.
