Recover with 2XU Gear

October 12, 2015 0 Comments

2XU compression apparel will help raise your workout intensity and increase stamina. They're also a great remedy for post-workout muscle fatigue and soreness as they improve circulation and promote recovery. The increased circulation speeds up pre-exercise warm ups so you can get to work quicker and utilize your gym time more efficiently. The following are a few products that we use regularly and recommend:

 

ANY VERSION OF THE MEN'S OR WOMEN'S COMPRESSION TIGHTS (NON THERMAL).

With graduated compression engineering to promote maximum blood flow, the 2XU Compression Tights utilize PWX FLEX fabric to wrap and support the major muscle groups allowing them to fire more efficiently, while promoting increased circulation to reduce fatigue and increase power. Its graduated compression design helps promote circulation (venous return) for improved oxygenation of muscles and reduces muscle damage + fatigue. Made with a flatlock seam construction for reduced chaffing, an antibacterial fabric, and a UPF50+ Sun Protection, 2XU Compression Tights are perfect for training, competing, and recovery.

Key Differences:

Elite MCS Compression Tights :: Utilize a 70 Denier PWX FLEX fabric in the front panel for optimal flexibility and movement with our extra powerful 105 Denier PWX WEIGHT fabric in the rear panel for added quad, hamstring and calf support. MCS (Muscle Containment Stamping) traces over the key muscles, tendon and fascia groups.

Standard Compression Tights :: Made from our 70 Denier PWX FLEX fabric to deliver optimal flexibility and movement.

UNISEX COMPRESSION CALF GUARDS AND SLEEVES. THE SLEEVES ARE A THICKER MATERIAL.

The 2XU Calf Guards may appear simple but they are strategically designed to be exceptionally effective for calf muscle containment when training and competing. Repeated muscle vibration is directly related to causing fatigue, muscle damage (small tears) and shin splints. The convenience of the calf guards allow the athlete to use their preferred sock and can also be worn under a wetsuit making transition times faster during a triathlon.

Key Differences:

Elite MCS Compression Calf Guards :: A powerful Muscle Containment Stamping (MCS) calf guard that traces over key muscle, tendon and fascia groups of the calf to focus on greater compression power, wrapping precise areas and reducing muscle oscillation and damage.

Compression Guards :: A light weight muscle containment piece great for all activities with extreme moisture managment and UPF50+ sun protection.

Compression Sleeves :: With a thicker fabric than the guard, 2XU sleeves offer powerful graduated compression great for all-purpose activities and recovery.

UNISEX COMPRESSION ARM SLEEVES.

The 2XU Arm Sleeve uses seamless, circular knit construction to create the ultimate graduated arm sleeve for the forearm and bicep. Using 250 denier fabric, the arm sleeve encases the entire length of the arm, applying a graduated pressure to increase circulation and support the muscles and tendons in the forearm, elbow and bicep.

Benefits:

  • Increased circulation and oxygenation of muscles
  • Graduated compression fit for a faster recovery
  • Highest power denier targeted support biceps + triceps
  • Reduced muscle fatigue + damage
