I personally was never a big user of compression socks until recently. I have never been an injury prone athlete, but lately started experiencing some calf cramping and fatigue in my left calf. I decided to give a CEP compression calf sleeve a try. Almost instantly, it had an impact. I was noticing on my next few runs that there was less muscle fatigue and less cramping. I have since been running with a compression sleeve and have experienced no issues whatsoever. Here are some additional benefits to wearing compressions socks/sleeves:
Proven to Reduce Injury
Reduces vibration, increase oxygen and promotes healing.
Increase oxygen to optimize muscles, removes lactic acid.
Increases oxygen to the Achilles; padding prevents damage.
Increases blood flow to increase warmth in the muscle.
Graduated compression prevents venous reflux and pooling.
Medical professionals have long recommended compression for patients looking to improve blood circulation and overall leg health. CEP uses the science behind medical compression to help athletes maximize performance and recovery.
For the athlete, improving arterial blood flow is the key to peaking performance. CEP compression socks apply consistent compression to the calf, allowing the arterial walls to relax and the flow of oxygen-rich blood to increase by up to 40%. More oxygen means more power during performance and a faster recovery.
Graduated medical grade compression that is tighter at the ankle improves vein health by reducing the veins’ diameter and pushing de-oxygenated blood back to the heart.
The bottom line? CEP compression socks have been scientifically proven to improve blood flow, allowing athletes to reach higher speeds using less energy.
