compression for running
Compression clothing for running works on the same principles as compression clothing in general - tight technology that delivers a certain amount of compression to hardworking muscles.
This technology means nutrient-rich blood can travel from the heart to the muscle, boosting recovery - whilst helping waste products like lactic acid to be removed efficiently.
Our range of CRX compression tights for runners has been carefully designed to pressurise the muscles in your calves and thighs to reduce muscle oscillation throughout and after your run. For full-on lower body compression, choose CRX compression tights; for specific and localised compression, choose CRX compression sleeves and compression socks.
Increased endurance, improved energy levels and boosted performance, professional runners all over the world turn to compression garments to make every session their best. Our studies prove that using our products in recovery and following our recommended protocols, you can achieve:
4% increase in time to exhaustion.
2% increase in sprint speed.
5% increase in muscle power.
compression calf sleeves
Compression sleeves for running are ideal for weather that is too hot for full compression leggings or tights. Designed to be worn with running shorts, your calf sleeves blood flow to the calves and help to reduce muscle oscillation, minimising your risk of a soft tissue tear in the calf and helping you to recover faster.
Our studies prove that using our products 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.
Plus, a massive 43% reduction in next day DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) following tough training sessions or competition.
Compression stimulates oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flow to the area, as well as minimising your risk of swelling and pain - getting your whole body ready to perform again.
CRX compression shorts provide compression targeted to the quads and the glutes; the largest smooth planes of muscle in the body. Operating at maximum efficiency means using compression to prevent microtears or strains. CRX compression shorts for a powerful recovery and performance.
IS COMPRESSION GOOD FOR RUNNING?
Compression for runners is a key part of the sport at a professional level. Compression clothing for running is a simple boost to performance - no ifs, no buts, and no questions. The muscles in your feet and legs are the furthest away from your heart - meaning that improving oxygenated blood to the area stops them from being fatigued as quickly. Reports have shown that runners using targeted compression clothing enjoy an improved flow of oxygenated blood by up to 40% - hitting hardworking muscles when they need it most.
Crucially, whether you’re a sprinter or an endurance athlete, a runner’s recovery needs to be minimal. Compression clothing during recovery minimises the risk of soft tissue damage - the most common injury for any runner. Compression leggings, calf sleeves and socks wrap around and support those key lower-body muscles, which reduces muscle movement and vibration in exertion. Protecting muscles at risk of strains or sprains minimises soft tissue damage -
the biggest threat to sporting success.
CRX compression socks are pressurised from ankle to calf, ensuring the largest possible area of compression while you run and reducing calf muscle oscillation for optimum recovery. Moisture-wicking fabric and breathability means CRX compression socks can be worn throughout all seasons.
