Thread: Compression Tights - Helpful or Useless?

    Default Compression Tights - Helpful or Useless?

    So i've been looking into the whole compression tight / skins thing. To get a pair of good quality tights, you'll normally pay $80+ which isnt such a problem.

    Are these worth the purchase for the cooling, blood flow stimulation? Or are they merely just a garment which doesnt offer much when lifting heavy...

    Ive seen a few folks wear them at the gym, and thought it'd be good to get a pair to wear under my shorts...

    Any thoughts/experiences?

    Blake.

    They don't do everything they claim, but they are great chafe, temp and sweat distribution.

    Just go to Big W and buy the Slazenger ones they sell. Half the price and do the same thing.

    I have a couple of sets that have compression bands.Awesome to wear AFTER a hot shower after a workout or the next day if there is a bit of DOMS.
    You look like a pufter if you wear them in the gym.Under your regular wear OK.
    As your wear no way.

    25 bucks at Lowes! I have a few pairs. When wearing my shorts, they don't get stuck on the skin. Def worth getting.

    Would the top be bad for squatting due to slipperiness on your back?

    I had a cheap compression top and had to take it off when I squat.
    First you get the powerlifts, then you get the women, then you get the money.
