It's no wonder top athletes of today are suiting up in tight-fitting compression apparel. It primes your body for movement by providing soon-to-be-hard-working muscles with oxygen-rich blood so they can endure even the most grueling workout. Strategically-placed panels add (good) pressure to areas of your body that need extra support—like your glutes, quads, and calves—locking muscles into place and reducing vibration that can shock your elbow and knee joints. 

There's no research proving compression can prevent injuries, but one thing's for sure: You can't hurt your body by wearing clothing that keeps your muscles anatomically in place, increases oxygen flow, and reduces swelling. Enhance your next workout with this gear that encourages proper movement, protects your joints and muscles, and makes you the best athlete possible.
