BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Sure compression gear looks cool, comes in various colours and keep you warm on those cold winter nights, but how effective are they really. Recently I was asked if a piece of clothing could really improve speed, performance and weight loss, so I decided to do a bit or research and this is what I discovered.
Compression gear is designed to deliver pressure to certain body parts. Most people who choose to wear compression gear believe that they will experience improved circulation and mechanics.
Compression gear may also reduce vibration in the skeletal muscle during training and competition. It believed that the reduced vibration contributes to less muscle trauma, less fatigue and biomechanical alterations during the course of an endurance event. As a result, athletes are expected to experience less soreness, edema and faster recovery in the days after exercise.
When your running, skipping or working out your feet hit the ground, which sends vibration up your leg and causes muscles to shake. This is thought to damage muscles and add to post-exercise soreness. Compression apparel secures the muscles in place to prevent muscular breakdown.
Wearing compression wear creates extra blood flow, which is purported to expedite the removal of metabolic waste and re-introduce the substances muscles require to rebuild.
Individual assessment of compression gear research shows some benefit, although it's mainly during the recovery process. Several studies support that compression garments reduce post-exercise declines in jump height, minimize strength loss, decrease muscle edema (swelling), and ease muscle soreness
Many studies indicated that compression wear is designed particularly for athletes who train and compete on a regular basis. While reports don't really say if there are many gains while wearing the clothing during competition, there is definitely compelling evidence that supports compression gear as a recovery process.
