Compression clothing means any sporting clothing that is tight. Not all base layers are in fact proper compression clothing, though. The purpose of compression clothes is to increase blood and lymphatic flow to a specified limb or area of the body. This, in turn, may improve performance and shorten recovery time post-exercise. They've now risen in popularity though from being only for runners. And they're now used by fitness and sports enthusiasts in a range of activities.
Whilst the evidence is not conclusive, compression clothing results in an increase in oxygen uptake to the working muscles. A reduction in blood lactate levels also occurs. Improved warm-ups have all been seen when wearing compression clothing post-exercise. But compression clothing is more than just tight fabric. It's graded in its tightness to ease blood flow. It also features wicking properties to reduce sweat and keep the athlete warm. Plus, it allows for an unrestricted range of movement.
