Muscle Building with Compression Gear 

Compression clothing is generally super tight and, often times, quite stylish. However, compression wear was designed with a clinical purpose in mind, but it soon transferred from the medical field into the sports field. In the present day, compression clothing is worn by both athletes and patients who suffer from various afflictions that require them to wear various degrees of compression around a limb, joint, or muscle group.

The form-fitting clothing designed with athletes in mind is meant to boost your athletic performance and facilitate a faster recovery so that you are truly making the most out of your workouts. Basically, it minimizes your efforts and maximizes your results.

Compression garments were initially created to help treat swelling disorders, such as lymphedema. It was soon used to treat other vascular disorders as well. This happened because doctors noticed that compression wear helps prevent the formation of blood clots even in infirm patients.

That being said, compression clothing can be beneficial even for inactive people. This positive pressure created by compression is much appreciated by runners and other athletes, especially since they found that well-engineered compression leggings can even enhance their sprinting and vertical jumping abilities.
