Elevate Your Game & Reach Your Goals With Compression Gear

Elevate Your Game & Reach Your Goals With Compression Gear

Remember Allen Iverson’s “shooter sleeve”? 

In the early 2000s, the NBA player used a stockinette sleeve, or arm sleeve, to relieve bursitis in his right elbow. He decided to keep the sleeve after seeing improvements in his shot and averaging about 35 points a game. Iverson never stopped wearing it for the rest of his career, and many NBA players followed suit. His almost ritualistic use of the arm sleeve popularized compression in basketball and the sports world as a whole.

But, the idea of wearing tight clothing for medical necessity wasn’t new in the early 2000s. Compression socks, popular with athletes and non-athletes alike, have long been used for relieving blood circulation issues. Luckily, today’s options are both better quality and widely available to you. 

 

What are the Benefits of Purchasing Compression Gear?

Compression technology can give you lasting benefits if you find the right product. First, it’s essential to understand what those are and figure out how those benefits may improve your health. 

Here are five different benefits of purchasing the supportive gear you need, from socks to arm and knee sleeves.

 

1. Stabilize Your Muscles & Improve Your Game

Like it states in its name, compression gear compresses your body. More specifically, the material compresses your muscles from vibrations that may interfere with its primary goal, contracting. Any athlete looking for a slight boost in performance would benefit from the reinforcement it offers on top of increased blood flow that aids in muscle recovery.

2. Assist in Weight and Fitness Goals

Are you trying to reach a weight or fitness goal, but your history of knee pain keeps you stuck to the couch? A knee sleeve will be vital to get started without reinjuring that knee. It will also likely prevent pain that could result from moving in new and healthy ways. No matter your fitness journey, purchasing compression to help your body along is a start in the right direction.

3. Prevent and Treat Medical Issues

In general, compression improves blood flow. Doctors regularly prescribe medical-grade sleeves for people with varicose veins and often after surgery. They can also help prevent deep-vein thrombosis for those more active athletes who are at risk and manage swelling in the legs. 

4. Keep Yourself Warm & Prevent Sunburn

Compression is also widely used in the sports and fitness worlds to keep warm. Wearing an arm sleeve underneath a long sleeve and jacket while skiing or wearing a knee sleeve underneath sweatpants during your morning run will keep your body temperature up in the bitter cold. 

Hate running or playing summer sports with greasy sunscreen on your arms in the summer heat? Luckily, you can also find arm sleeves with UV protection. 

5. Enjoy a Variety of Sleeves, Garments, and Material

Arm and knee sleeves could benefit both a high school weightlifter and a co-ed softball playing adult with two very different body types. Today’s compression gear comes in various materials and fabric weights that can give you a range of stability and comfort. With such a diverse selection, finding the right compression sleeve to fit your size and needs is key.
