We all train hard to improve our performance in sport, whether its mountain biking, road cycling, climbing, snowboarding or visiting the gym. One thing that many of us struggle to come to terms with is fatigue during sport and recovery after we’ve undertaken strenuous exercise. There are many factors that can influence this, such as food, fitness levels, water intake etc. We all like to ‘feel the burn’, but not throughout the entire session! If this sounds like you whilst you’re taking part in your chosen sport, then you should definitely read on.
How does Skins compression clothing work? The compression provides the correct level of pressure to specific parts of your body, this pressure enhances circulation, which creates more oxygen to your active muscles. The fabric is engineered to apply surface pressure on specific body parts. The end result is increased power, speed and stamina!
This improved circulation can help to combat lactic acid build up during hard workout sessions and it can also aid recovery. A few of our staff wear Skins for mountain biking, road cyling, running, climbing and snowboarding and we have been very impressed with the results! We’ve found that if you wear them during sport you are less fatigued and the compression helps you to feel stable for longer, as the support of the compression really does cut out muscle vibration.
Within the Skins Compression Clothing range there is an ‘Active Range’, which is suitable for all sports, such as climbing, snowboarding, gym etc and there’s also a great ‘Cycling Range’ siutable for mountain biking and road cycling.
Skins clothing provides excellent moisture management which helps to keep you dry and warm. The fabric is 50 + UPF sun protection and consists on antibacterial and antimicrobial treatment for great odour prevention.
