COMPRESSION LEG SLEEVES BENEFITS
Enhanced blood circulation as a result of improved venous return. This means that deoxygenated blood goes back to the heart faster to improve blood flow of oxygen-rich blood back to the body
Faster recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate through improved circulation.
Enhanced warm-up via increased skin temperature.
Reduced muscle oscillation and vibration upon ground contact, providing stability to the muscle to help prevent micro-trauma, resulting in a faster and easier recovery.
Reduced effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise through alleviating swelling and inflammation.
Increased muscle support, which increases performance through improved muscle efficiency.
Improved leg power and vertical jump power through enhanced proprioception.
FEATURES OF COMPRESSION CALF SLEEVES
Targeted support: Muscle-mapped 3D v-shaped chevron ribbing helps provide optimal support to pinpoint areas.
Moisture wicking and breathable: Special yarns help to ensure an optimal body temperature while preventing the build up of perspiration.
Graduated compression: Helps circulation by increasing venous return. This can help reduce swelling as well as reduce recovery time between workouts.
Zensah is the original creator of the Compression Leg Sleeves. Calf sleeves were designed by an athletic trainer to help mimic taping methods with the purpose of alleviating shin splints and providing calf support. The Compression Leg Sleeves are lightweight, yet durable and are made of Zensah's ultra-soft, premium fabric. They are moisture wicking and anti-odor: meaning they will stay dry and smell great even through the toughest conditions.
Used these last weekend for my 18 mile run in preparation for the Houston Marathon in January. These performed great and had no calf pain after the run. During the run didn't really know that I was wearing them. Would recommend and might have to get some in different colors
Zensah has the best compression sleeves around! All of the solid colors and designs are awesome! I have not had shin splints in years, and they really just keep your body feeling good. I never run without them, and these are great to wear for recovery after a long run! Love them!!
My overall experience is the same , even when the sleeves are one color … Happy !
I’ve taken my Navy sleeves to a half marathon, and an 18.5 training run on the road today . I am excited to have such a great new color that goes with so much . Wearing blue … not feeling blue .
I have several pairs of these in several colors. What is not abundantly evident on the website is that the fabric composition varies, something I found out accidentally. My favorites are heather grey and heather mint, the only two (to my knowledge) that are composed of 49% Polyester/41% Nylon/10% Spandex. All the rest are 90% Nylon / 10% Spandex. For whatever reason, the addition of the Polyester makes them (for me) more comfortable and easier to put on and off.
