Why do you wear compressed tights for running? What do they effect on running?
In past years, many runners were only equipped with a short-sleeved T-shirt and sports shorts/trousers, most of which were loose. Nowadays, in playgrounds, streets or marathon tracks, we can see that the activewears on runners are becoming more and more tight.
1. Reduce leg shaking during running
Many people’s first impression of compressed tights is “very tight and difficult to put on”, which is because of its high spandex content. It can compress and support muscles, and help to fix muscles and joints during exercise.
In the process of running, fat jitter caused by large movements can easily lead to joint injuries. Compressed tights can just reduce the jitter during running.
On the other hand, it can help reduce the shaking of leg muscles and relieve fatigue. Compressed tights can keep your muscles focused on the “current task”-running, which will make you run more efficiently, run farther and longer.
2. Keep warm
We all know that it is necessary to warm up the car before driving in winter to ensure the normal start of the engine, and the engine with too low temperature can easily cause stall. By the same token, we usually warm up before running, and we should avoid losing temperature during the whole running process.
Compressed tights can help you keep your legs warm during running. In winter, compressed tights with a pair of trousers can cope with most cold weather. In addition, they can also quickly lead out the sweat on the skin surface and keep your skin in a relatively dry state.
3. Accelerate recovery
Compression tights will adopt gradient compression, that is, the farther away from the heart, the stronger the compression, which can accelerate the blood circulation and thus accelerate the delivery of oxygen to the sports muscles. On the one hand, better blood circulation can help to increase exercise performance during exercise, it can help to remove some muscle metabolites (pH, H+,lactic acid and K+) related to decreased exercise performance.
4. Protect the skin
In hot weather, compressed tights can protect you from the direct sunlight, inhibit the penetration of infrared rays, protect yourself from the sun and reduce the heat absorption. In addition, if you accidentally fall down during running, they can also help reduce scratches.
So for runners, we can see that compressed tights play a great role. Why don’t you have a try tight?
