A lot of pro athletes are using compression, but even if you are a beginner, compression will bring you the same benefits as pro athletes. During the effort, limiting vibrations, compression will reduce muscle damage, delay muscle fatigue, improve prolonged performances and prevent delayed muscle soreness). Moreover, wearing compression during recovery will increase the oxygen supply, eliminating toxins faster and preventing swelling). Everyone, either pro athletes or competitors needs the very best to reach the top.

SPORT COMPRESSION = CONTENTION ! WRONG.

Inspired by medical contention and adapted to sports, sport compression is way more more elastic and designed to maintain optimal and gradual compression levels onto working muscles.
