How does it work?

It is important to have a basic understanding of how blood circulates through your body. Your heart pumps oxygenated blood to your body and extremities. Your cells use the oxygen and nutrients from the blood. It is then returned back to your heart via a series veins and arteries. As your deoxygenated blood passes by your lungs, it is re-oxygenated on its way back to the heart to be pumped out again to the body. This process is repeated over and over. Your muscles rely on oxygenated blood for performance. The more oxygen and nutrients your muscles have, the better they will perform and function. 

When you exercise, your body produces lactic acid. Lactic acid is a waste product that if retained in your muscles will contribute to soreness and fatigue. Lactic acid in your muscles will continue to rise even after you exercise. One of the only ways to remove lactic acid is by well-oxygenated muscle cells. That's where compression comes in.

Studies have shown that consistent levels of compression will increase blood flow during activity and during recovery.

Wait..how?

Glad you asked. Your legs are pretty far from your heart, so a lot of pumping needs to happen to circulate oxygenated blood to your legs and back. So, your legs are prone to lactic acid build up. Compression sleeves help to constrict the walls of your veins which increases the velocity of blood flow through your legs. This means, that your legs are getting fresh, oxygen-rich blood to your muscles quicker. Therefore, you will be able to perform better longer and recover from your workout faster.

Compression sleeves are known to help relieve pain caused by cramps, shin splints, other leg ailments and fatigue. They are not a cure-all and are only part of the regime of Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation (R.I.C.E.)

Compression sleeves have proven to be effective for non-fitness activities, like nurses on their feet for long periods of time or businessmen traveling on long flights across the globe.

Compression keep your blood flowing, so you can keep moving!

According to RunningDay.org, since 2009, the country's foremost running organizations have worked together to celebrate our sport with thousands of participants on the first Wednesday of June. 

We don't need an excuse to run... we love running. BUT... we're not perfect. When it's cold or wet or both, sometimes under a heavy, warm comforter is the likely place to cheat the unformidable elements. With that said, if you need a little coaxing or an excuse to get out there and put the rubber sole to the pavemet, Wednesday is a better day than any to dust off the cobwebs and lace up your running shoes. It's a direct order. Everyone is doing it. Quite literally.

All across the country National Running Day meetups are happening in major and minor cities. Find one for yourself: http://www.runningday.org/group-runs/

We'll see you out there!
