Men’s Compression

With compression technology that boosts performance and recovery while decreasing injury risk, this collection will help you break personal records and get the most out of your workout.

The Benefits of Compression

Wearing compression garments provides your body with many benefits so you can excel in whatever sport or activity you pursue. Compression technology helps support performance, recovery times, and against injury risk.

Supports Blood Circulation

A primary benefit of wearing compression clothing is supporting blood flow and circulation throughout your body. Compression technology specifically helps support healthy blood flow from the area it covers back to the heart so you can keep moving. This also helps ensure the working muscles receive the oxygen they need to continue training.

Soothes Muscle Swelling and Soreness

Because of the healthy blood flow, compression technology also prevents fluid build-up in the lower legs. Fluid buildup can cause swelling and discomfort, but wearing compression shorts or tights can help soothe this.

With soothed soreness, you can get back in action as quickly as possible and with minimum discomfort, making compression garments a great option for supporting your recovery process.

A great option to help soothe swelling and discomfort in the lower legs and feet is our Compression Socks for Recovery, which are designed to support your recovery process and get you back to training without delay.

Stabilizes Muscles

Because of the tight fit of compression garments, they function to hold your muscles in place and minimize any unnecessary movement or vibrations that may occur when performing a high-impact level activity. This supports the body against the risk of injury as your muscles are more securely held in place.

Protect the Skin from the Sun

Compression garments are made with thicker, more protective material than ordinary athletic clothes. This gives them a higher SPF factor and provides you with more protection against the sun if you’re exercising outside.

The thicker material also helps protect you against wild outdoor trail or hiking terrain elements such as poison ivy, thorny plants, and low-hanging branches, keeping you safe and comfortable. Lastly, all 2XU men’s compression wear is made with flatlock seams that help reduce chafing, so you don’t have to worry about discomfort from excess friction.

Men’s Compression Wear for Running

Our collection of men’s compression gear features many options that are specifically designed for running. These garments will help you stay supported and on your way to breaking new records.

Shorts and Tights

Our men’s compression shorts and tights provide warmth in cold weather, help keep you protected against unpredictable trail conditions, and are great for layering under other bottoms if preferred. They are the perfect addition to your run and collection of activewear.

Men’s Compression Wear for Training, Yoga, and Pilates

Because compression garments target and provide relief to specific muscles, they make great options for weight training, yoga, and pilates.
