Compression Shorts and Their Benefits

There are numerous benefits to wearing compression shorts during and after your workout. They are a great option for running, biking, gym training, and more. The compression technology built into our men’s compression shorts works hard to help you perform to the best of your abilities and recover as quickly as possible.

Optimizing Performance

The technology in our men’s compression shorts helps to keep your leg muscles supported, remain in place, and prevent unnecessary vibrations. The tight fabric also improves performance by increasing blood circulation throughout the working muscles and back to the heart. The effect is that your muscles can exert energy more continuously, which boosts your stamina throughout your workout.

Speeding Up Recovery Time

Long recovery times can sometimes interfere with training goals, but with the use of compression garments, you can help support this process and get back in action without delay.

Compression has always been a part of the well-known RICE recovery method: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. Wearing compression shorts during and/or after your workout is a great way to fulfill this portion of the classic recovery guidelines.

Compression technology can support the body’s natural management of lactic acid, the substance that contributes to feelings of soreness. This is again due to the ability of compression technology to support blood flow. Compression shorts can also help by soothing muscle pain after a workout.

Compression shorts, as opposed to baggy or unlined shorts, most notably support recovery when worn post-workout. This ensures that the shorts support blood flow as your body begins its recovery process.

Secure Fit

Due to the skin-tight fit of compression shorts, you will never have to worry about your shorts riding up or falling down in the middle of a workout. The long inseam length can also help reduce chafing during running, walking, and biking to minimize discomfort.

Still, many come with phone pockets, rear pockets, and side pockets, so you won’t have to lug around a backpack on your run.

These shorts are great for layering underneath other shorts or pants, so you still receive the benefits of compression regardless of what you choose to wear.

2XU’s Muscle Containment Stamping Technology

Unique to 2XU, Muscle Containment Stamping (MCS) technology is an added benefit of some of our men’s compression shorts. MCS is essentially designed to target specific areas of the body, in this case, the legs, and aid in supporting those areas throughout a workout. This technology can also help reduce the impact of sports such as running on your legs.

Light Speed Compression Shorts

In the Light Speed Compression Shorts, the MCS technology targets and traces the quadriceps. It also helps to disperse the load and impact on the knee joints during running to other parts of the legs.

Force Compression Shorts

In the Force Compression Shorts, the MCS technology targets the glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. For the glutes, it helps maintain good posture and increase pelvic and lower back stability. For the hamstrings, it helps disperse the impact when these muscles are strained during activities such as lifting and squatting.
