BASE Compression

Benefits of wearing compression


BASE Compression can help you train longer and recover faster. Compression apparel has been proven to support athletic performance before, during and after activity through improving circulation, muscle support and a reduction of muscle vibration and micro-tearing.

Pre Training
1. Compression can improve your blood circulation, support your muscle and improve your warm up in preparation for training or game day performance.

During Training and Exercise
1. A reduction in muscle fatigue is important, with BASE Compression, our fabric support and retention allows greater stability to hold the muscle and reduce the muscle bounce and vibration. This reduces the general feeling of fatigue and increases training output.
2. The flexibility and pressure of BASE Compression supports posture and mobility, offering more stability and muscle support.

Post Training
1. Recovery compression garments have been shown to help athletes during the active recovery process. Research shows that following a high intensity workout, for example, wearing the long compression tight for a minimum of 4 hours will allow a faster recovery.
2. Compression garments provide a reduction in muscle fatigue, helping to decrease the heart rate and lactic acid buildup in athletes. An efficient removal of blood lactate from muscles helps reduce swelling and speeds up muscle repair.
3. Reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) with graduated compression. Compression helps with blood circulation, whether for sport or travel. BASE Compression helps reduce swelling in feet and ankles and lowers the risk of blood clots and DVT.
