Running Calf Sleeves - Compression For Runners
Running calf sleeves provide leg compression to relieve shin splints, calf cramping, even Achilles tendonitis. Used by professional athletes and novice runners, calf sleeves help prevent injuries, as well as, encourage faster recovery during training. They're helpful for recreational athletic use, a long run, and ultra marathon activities.
BENEFITS OF RUNNING CALF SLEEVES
Calf sleeves feature a cone-shaped cylinder design that provides graduated compression. The design benefits runners by reducing muscle vibration that can result in micro trauma, muscle fatigue, and decreased performance.
They offer other benefits of compression as well. They help increase the venous return of deoxygenated blood back to the heart after training. In summary, quality running calf sleeves help by enhancing performance through increased blood flow, faster recovery, decreased muscle soreness, and less overall fatigue.
Wearing compression can help improve recovery time in as little as 24 hours!
HOW TO PICK A RUNNING CALF SLEEVE
Running calf sleeve products come in different lengths to fit both short and tall individuals so choosing the right length is important. The circumference of the leg is used to choose the right size; If you're on the borderline, then sizing down is recommended in most instances to achieve good results.
While most compression leg sleeves are made from Spandex/nylon you'll also find skin-friendly styles made from breathable materials that are both lightweight and durable enough for a everyday running. We also carry running sleeves with thinner, moisture-wicking materials that provide consistent compression.
