The Benefits of Compression
There are numerous benefits of training with compression technology. The technology in our women’s compression shorts helps support your muscles throughout your workout. The tight and secure fit aids in keeping your muscles in place and reducing excess movement.
Compression itself is meant to support your body’s blood flow so your muscles receive adequate oxygen. This allows them to continue moving for longer, supporting stamina.
Compression also plays a role in the body’s recovery process post-workout. By wearing compression shorts during and for a few hours after a workout, your blood will keep flowing, and muscle soreness will be soothed. This way, you can get back in action without unnecessary delay.

Running in Low Light
Running in the morning or at night can be a great way to combat the heat during summertime. Training when the temperature is cooler, and the sun is less bright can make your run much more enjoyable and decrease the risk of dehydration.
But it is important that if you choose to run in low-light conditions, you wear clothing with bright colors or reflective highlights to remain as safe and visible to oncoming traffic and other runners as possible. 2XU offers women’s running shorts that come with reflective logos and highlights.
