Begginer Running, running, Exercise Study Want to Increase Your Running Endurance? Compression Gear Can Help
Many runners of all levels and distances—like record-breaking marathoner and three-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan—swear by their compression socks, sleeves, shorts, and tights on race day. But does donning the spandex-like clothing have realperformance and recovery benefits when it comes to running? A new meta-analysismight just have you convinced to run out (no pun intended!) and buy some for yourself.

The paper, published in the journal Sports Medicine, looked at 30 existing studies on compression gear and running performance and recovery across a variety of distances, including a half marathon, a 15K trail run, 5K and 10K runs, and a 400-meter sprint. The authors concluded that while compression garments had no significant impact on speed, there was an impact on endurance, and some serious post-run benefits too.

Specifically, they found small positive effects on the 'time to exhaustion', running economy, clearance of blood lactate, and markers of muscle damage and inflammation. They also reported large positive effects on post-exercise leg soreness and the delayed onset of muscle fatigue.
How exactly does compression gear do this? Well, it helps to improve the amount of blood that's flowing back to the heart from the legs while you're running, which can improve cardio output, explains Alice Perlowski, M.D., cardiologist and vascular medicine specialist, triathlete, and medical advisor to CEP compression.
