I have heard so much about the benefits of compression gear for endurance sports. I cycle and also run long distances so I knew it was something I should look into! Robert from RunJunk.com gave me the opportunity to review a pair of the Zensah Calf and Shin Compression Sleeve!
From the Website:
- Developed to provide dual action support to the calf and shin area
- Improves oxygen blood flow allowing athletes to train harder and recover faster
- Chevron ribbing reduces the risk of shin splints and pinpoint compression provides calf support
I tried the calf and shin compression sleeves 2 different ways. I first used them during a 9 mile run outside. What I really liked about these sleeves is that I knew I was wearing them. What I mean by that is I felt them working. They were tight, but not in a constricting way. They felt good. They gripped my calves and shins in all the right spots! I was also instructed by Robert to wear them for an hour or 2 after running/cycling and my running and cycling friends recommended not exceeding wearing them for 8 hours at a time. The second time I wore them was for about 2 hours while awake and 6 hours while sleeping. I had a very busy day of instructing. I taught a cardio sculpt class as well as a 90-minute spin class. My legs were very tired. I felt very refreshed the next morning. What really sold me on wearing the sleeves was how great my legs felt while instructing that day (the day after my busy day). I taught one 45 minute spin class and 9 hours later a 90 minute spin class. My legs felt fresh and new! I am sure this was because of the sleeves. My legs are normally very tired due to my heavy work load. I am an endurance athlete and this product just makes sense. It’s almost necessary for me to use the compression sleeves because of the many benefits and how they help aid in recovery, resulting in improved performance. What’s not to love about that?
From the website:
For years athletes have known about the benefits of recovery bars, and drinks. Now a start-up company From Miami, Florida called Zensah® has developed recovery leg sleeves using a special knitting process and fabric.
The Calf/Shin recovery sleeves are made with gradient compression which provides wide ribbing in the front for shin support, and tight ribbing in the back for calf support. The sleeves are made with Zensah Fabric® which has silver helping regulate skin temperature, and fight bacteria. The sleeves can be worn during training to increase oxygen blood flow to the muscles of the lower leg. The more oxygen the muscles receive the faster they recovery allowing athletes to push the envelope in their training. The Zensah Calf/Shin sleeve is ideal for runners, cyclists and triathletes. It can be worn during training, recovery or for traveling after races.
The Zensah Calf/Shin sleeves are unique in that they provide pint point compression to the front and back of the leg. The dual action support was developed by a professional athletic trainer.
I recommend Zensah Calf and Shin Compression Sleeves! They are a must – have product for runners and cyclists that spend a lot of time hitting the pavement. You are hard on your body and it deserves the best! Ahhhhhh- Zensah!
