Zensah Compression Gear’s

tumblr_static_runners-next-to-header

As the demand for quality sports wear increases, runners and athletes of all ages are now on the look-out for new and effective ways to improve their performance, whether it’s by using specialized running shoes or by donning ultra-aerodynamic garments. But now, with the introduction of seamless compression gear from Zensah, one of the world’s leading compression sportswear brands, runners from all over the Philippines can now enjoy the full benefits that quality compression gear has to offer.

Runner with injured leg

For many runners, injury and muscle fatigue can be a problem, especially when they’ve been training long and hard for events like 5Ks and full marathons. Despite having the energy and the willpower to go on running, sometimes the pain can be too much, which is why having the right gear is of utmost importance. As the old adage goes, “The best defense is a good offense,” and when it comes to keeping you injury-free, compression gear is your best bet.

For the uninitiated, compression garments provide support for the body by applying varying degrees of compression to it. It keeps the muscles warm, thus preventing strain and muscle fatigue. And by wicking moisture away from the skin, it also effectively prevents chafing and rashes, that can cause blistering, which can slow you down.

So, whether you’ve just started the habit or are a lifelong runner, here are some things you should know about how Zensah compression-wear can benefit you:

More than Circulation Poster

Improves blood circulation – For more than half a century now, compression garments have been used in treating illnesses like diabetes, edema (swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs), and deep vein thrombosis by improving blood circulation, bringing valuable oxygen to those hard-working muscles and increasing blood flow.

Reduces recovery time – By improving blood flow, compression gear speeds up the removal of metabolic waste, thus reducing the presence of lactic acid in the body. If you’ve ever experienced pain and cramping the day after a particularly grueling workout, lactic acid is the culprit. It’s a by-product produced during exercise or any kind of strenuous activity that contributes to muscle soreness and fatigue. Zensah compression leg sleeves effectively decrease the dreaded delayed onset muscle soreness or DOMS, so you can hit the pavement when you want to, without having to wait for muscle fatigue to wear off.

Prevents injury – Compression leg sleeves support the calf in a way that regular socks don’t; through graduated compression, the muscles in the calf and shin are compressed, reducing the damage caused by continuous movement and impact from long-distance running. Shin splints are a common injury for many runners. With Zensah leg sleeves, you’ll be able to get instant relief from a debilitating, and inconvenient, injury.

Provides the perfect ergonomic fit – Zensah leg sleeves are engineered with chevron and micro ribbing which provides support for the calf muscle and minimizes fatigue, while Zensah Tech+ compression socks employ ultra-zone ribbing that improve ankle and arch stability ensuring a better, more comfortable run.

Zensah compression leg sleeves and Tech+ compression socks are the ultimate in athletic apparel, and are guaranteed to keep you comfortable and injury-free throughout every run.

They also have Bra , Compression Socks, arm sleeve, compression thights and compression short’s as well.

Zensah compression-wear is now available in the following outlets: Runnr, Planet Sports, R.O.X., Arena.
