Product Spotlight: Zensah Compression Sleeves

I have tried practically every brand of compression on the market and nothing compares to my Zensah sleeves!

They are ultra lightweight, soft and feel great against the skin - not too tight, just the right amount of support. They are also moisture wicking and anti-odor so they will stand up against the toughest conditions...they also come in amazing designs/colors/patterns.

Here are some reasons why wearing compression both during and after runs/intense workouts is so beneficial:

  • Enhanced blood circulation as a result of improved venous return. This means that deoxygenated blood goes back to the heart faster to improve blood flow of oxygen-rich blood back to the body.

  • Faster recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate through improved circulation.

  • Enhanced warm-up via increased skin temperature.

  • Reduced muscle oscillation and vibration upon ground contact, providing stability to the muscle to help prevent micro-trauma, resulting in a faster and easier recovery.

  • Reduced effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise through alleviating swelling and inflammation.

  • Increased muscle support, which increases performance through improved muscle efficiency.

  • Improved leg power and vertical jump power through enhanced proprioception.

I always wear my Zensah's on the plane when flying after races or flying after a long training run. Talk about recovery in style!
