Do Compression Tights Work?

Do You Recover With Compression Tights?

Not just ordinary leggings, compression tights are believed to help athletes recover and remain at their best. Using the power of compression, these garments are designed to provide the body with circulatory benefits for more oxygen delivery and reduced lactic acid buildup. Using a special knit (e.g. the warp knit or circular knit), this fitted material applies pressure to specific muscles to prevent swelling and other posttraining effects.

The results are debatable. Some studies show a reduction in around $100, they aren't necessarily magic. But, many athletes use tights to recover, leading us to wonder: do you? Vote in the poll and tell us your thoughts below!
