compression for cricket
With CRX compression for cricket, recovery starts as soon as you step off the field. Our graduated compression panels work to boost venous return, as they apply target pressure to the key muscle groups.
During test matches, cricketers cover an average of 25 kilometres per day in the field over a period of 5 days - making it imperative for players to return, feeling recovered and ready to perform again.
CRX compression tights for cricket can be one of the best ways to reduce swelling and pain in the glutes, legs, calves, and ankles. After a day in the field, or between fixtures, our experts recommend sleeping in your CRX compression tights, both to reduce DOMS and benefit from improved venous return. Wearing our 20% lycra compression tights after cricket may additionally help to minimise the damage of microbleeds. Stimulated blood flow helps to reduce the severity of the damage and works to prevent it becoming a symptomatic bleed the next day.
CRX compression garments are proven to provide a massive 43% reduction in next day DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) following tough training sessions or competition.
With CRX, cricketers can compress to combat the effects of both repetitive and sudden injuries. Our cricket compression wear offers cricketers supportive garments to work with nutrient-rich blood flow into their muscles, maximising performance and minimising fatigue. The 20% lycra content of our cricket compression range provides the right amount of flex and stretch to retain your range of movement, whilst the 80% nylon content supports muscles at rest.
Applying CRX compression after cricket ultimately means that professionals won’t miss a second more of the game than they have to: remaining rested and restored after each play to get back out there in the morning. With assisted recovery from injury, players experience a faster recovery from intense exercise - letting them perform at full power the next time they step onto the field.
Our compression shorts for cricket work to prevent high hamstring injuries, pubic symphysis and sporting groin with tight compression on hardworking bodies. If you sustain an injury during play, or in the midst of recovery, CRX compression shorts provide both pre- and post- pressure when it’s needed.
CRX compression tops for cricket are crucial for use post-play in your active recovery phrase. Our experts recommend compressing after you walk off the field to protect against worsening those oblique tears or muscular spasms sustained during play. A microtear in the thoracic muscles could dramatically deepen or increase in severity if proper compressive wear is not observed - but with compression could theoretically stop tears worsening from minor to major in a matter of hours.
Our studies prove that using our CRX compression garments in recovery and following our recommended protocols, you can look to achieve:
36% more next day power. 37% more next day strength. 36% increase in overall recovery performance.
The physical and mental intensity demanded by the game means you’ll need to be at your peak at all times - without a moment off for the duration of play. Both high and low intensity, with short bursts and long stretches of play, cricketers have to be agile, adaptable and flexible -
and so does their compression.
CRX cricket compression socks are essential in fighting issues of posterior impingement and pressure felt in the feet during play. With an enormous amount of weight forced through the ankle, foot and toes, feet can swell dramatically during and after play.
One of the most important functions of CRX compression for cricket is in its qualities of injury prevention. Cricketing injuries can be as diverse as the game itself, with impact injuries, endurance injuries and repetitive strain cropping up as common. However, as cricketers will know, several regions of the body suffer more than others.
One of the most impacted areas of the body in professional cricket is the lower body - striking a delicate balance between sprints and longer strides. Over a five-day span in Test cricket, with 12-hour days a common fixture, cricketers must maintain strength and endurance: showing up fully rested and recharged day after day.
compression calf sleeves
CRX calf sleeves for cricket can help to protect the lower limbs against both previous calf injuries or severe tears and swelling caused by new traumas or microtears. Calf and mobility issues are all-too-common amongst cricketers, so prevent a recurrence of old injuries with CRX calf sleeves. Increase venous return, and ensure oxygen can reach your muscles a little easier with our graduated compression, thanks to the 20% lycra content. Boost the performance and blood flow of your mid-achilles and SOAS, with CRX compression wear for cricket.
is compression for you?
Implementing CRX compression wear for cricketers is a vital part of being able to maintain play after play. Slipping on CRX compression garments after a fixture means that your muscles start to recover immediately: our graduated compression begins to boost venous return, bringing that oxygenated blood to any sites of trauma, micro-swelling or muscle tears. Common injuries that can take cricketers off the field for weeks at a time are targeted in a matter of hours, bringing swellings down and stimulating the flow of healing blood to your limbs.
