Is compression tights any useful for recovery

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I am coming back from an injury and started running again recently. I'm taking close to 5 days for recovery on top of getting to work feeling the soreness.

Am thinking of investing and have read about tights. Does it do any good? 2XU is extremely expensive, any alternatives?

Speaking from experience,  it is not enough to think of getting and wearing a tight to hope it will do magic from injury. I suggest u take your time to build up the distance consistently and slowly pending on your body state.. 

Tight= compression is not the full story. The full post workout recovery is Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. (RICE) if u wish to do compression.. remember to lift the body part to same / or higher than your heart level. (you will need to lie down and raise your leg in order to achieve Elevation position) 

Lastly usually pain is caused by inflammation thus the best way to speed up the recover is via your diet. Avoid processed sugar/food and eat more  natural stuff like tomato or orange etc. Google food for inflammation and u will get ton of info.

 

Hope it helps !

Well, I shall be ready in my 2XU for this coming 2019 SCSM Maiden Evening Marathon

with an aging right leg (soreness) which I need to compress,  k-tape with knee-cap support.

Expensive, yes.  If in triathlon (swim then cycle/run), it is necessary.

For run? Depends. Yes, what if the weather is wet and rainy and you need warmth? Then a compression running suite will be an alternative.

It is expected, a cooler, wetter evening for this maiden SCSM Evening Marathon. My decision is to gear up appropriately and minimise "discomfort" on my soreness on my aging right leg with compression, taping and knee-cap support.

2XU alternatives : Tried them before. Later, losses its "Compression" due to the material degenerating after numerous wears.

    • Thanks for the update bro! Now I can mark my calendar.
    • Mayor says coronavirus should not affect Boston Marathon (info extracted: mybestruns.com)     The Boston Marathon has never been canceled or postponed in its 122-year history, although it was stopped in 2013 after two bombs were detonated near the finish.  The Boston Marathon had never been canceled or postponed, even by snow squalls in 1925, 1961, and 1967, sleet in 1907, or 100-degree heat in 1905.
    • Thanks @lonewolf, SRY is "fighting" an uphill battle against pending lawsuits. Seems like he is determined to "correct" the wrongs on accusation with the "right" facts. Let's see how the events unfold, legally. SRY is an inspired athlete for all,  battle against vs The Rest of the World on his plans on breaking his own PBs. Again, we report facts, and we let the Courts decide on the legal verdicts. Just enjoy SRY's journey against all odds.
    • I originally started this thread to discuss SRY's omission from the 2019 SEA Games. But since that event has long past and the thread has taken a new life on its own, I have changed the Title of the thread to correctly reflect the current situation - Soh Rui Yong vs The Rest of the World : ) Thanks for the update, Uncle!
