Why Choose Compression Shorts?
Compression shorts are immensely popular with today's top athletes, and this is not scientifically baseless. A study on the effects of compression clothing revealed compression garments improved endurance performance (i.e., time to exhaustion) slightly, due to improvements in running economy, biomechanical variables, perception, and muscle temperature. Participants also benefited from reduced muscle pain, damage and inflammation.
