Are you a competitive runner looking for a way to improve your performance and reduce your recovery time? If so, then you may want to consider the use of compression shorts with increased compression around the core.
Recent research has found that compression garments, such as Coretech compression shorts, can help improve running kinematics by reducing the fluctuations in pelvic and hip rotation. This helps to reduce energy loss due to misdirected force, leading to improved performance and faster recovery. In addition, Coretech compression shorts can help with propulsion by providing extra support and stability to the core, allowing the runner to stay in proper form while running.
Compression shorts can also help reduce the level of physical stress on the body, allowing runners to maintain their peak performance without running the risk of overuse or injury. In addition, the increased compression around the core improves the circulation of oxygenated blood and other nutrients around the body, helping to reduce the risk of muscle cramping and spasms.
Overall, there is good evidence that compression shorts with increased compression around the core can benefit runners of all levels, from amateur to professional athletes. So if you’re looking for a way to improve your performance and reduce your recovery times, consider the use of compression shorts. It could be the difference between a first-place finish or a disappointing result!
Supacore has a patented Coretech® technology which can assist runners with performance and injury prevention. Many runners report that the stability provided by our Coretech® shorts and leggings enhances performance.
