As runners, we have all experienced those pesky shin splints or calf cramps at one point or another. LEGEND compression socks and compression sleeves were designed with runners in mind to help alleviate them and other common leg ailments. Another key benefit of graduated compression includes an increase in power output and endurance. Will these bad boys alone shave huge chunks of time off your marathon? Not on their own. But they will help your legs stay strong so you can keep performing at your best. The compression stabilizes the lower leg muscles, which decreases cramping and impact to the bones, and it improves blood circulation to keep you running longer and keep your legs in top health.
In a nutshell, will compression help with running? Yes. Will your legs thank you in the long run? Definitely.
