A new year means new goals for many people.
If we’re being honest, we know that most New Year-themed goals and resolutions revolve around the idea of improved health and physical fitness, which is a great way to start the year.
Whether you’re an avid runner who loves to spend a sunny Saturday hitting the pavement to train for your next half marathon, a weightlifting enthusiast who aims to reach new personal records, or simply someone who wants to put fitness first again by partaking in group fitness classes as a local gym, there is one thing in common: health is at the forefront.
While we often think of the best sneakers and most comfortable and supportive workout clothes, we must remember an important (and essential!) piece of our workout gear puzzle: the socks.
Protecting your legs and feet and keeping the blood flowing throughout your workouts is important to our overall health. In fact, our leg and foot health is integral to our overall fitness performance, recovery, and long-term achievements.
If you’re working out and not using compression socks, now is the time to change.
Let’s discuss the benefits of sports compression socks in more detail.
What Are the Benefits of Compression During Workouts?
In simplest terms, leg and ankle compression, of any degree, helps to improve circulation in the legs and feet.
When circulation is improved, the blood becomes more oxygenated and adds nutrients to help improve your workout performance.
Workout compression socks help blood return to the heart, which may be impeded from your feet due to inflammation caused by an injury or illness.
By speeding up blood return to the heart, your body can deliver more oxygenated blood to all body parts, increasing recovery time and overall performance levels.
Compression socks for workouts also decrease foot fatigue and swelling and provide micro-massages on your legs and feet throughout the entirety of wear.
This year, we encourage you to focus on the importance of circulation when you’re gearing up for your workouts by choosing compression workout socks every time you hit the gym, trails, or streets for your next big fitness day.
