Compression garments reduce muscle fatigue

Posted by: Naomi Jarman

COMPRESSION garments worn by athletes to keep muscles warm may improve performance by reducing muscle fatigue.

Dale Lovell and colleagues at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, measured lactate levels in 25 rugby players after they'd exercised wearing either spandex-like compression garments or regular shorts.

Lactate levels were significantly lower in players kitted out in the compression garments, possibly because they stimulate blood flow that clears the substance. Lactate is associated with muscle fatigue, quick removal may improve performance (Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, DOI: 10.1519/JSC.0b013e31821764f8).

Solidea Red Wellness (FIR Technology) Opaque Support Tights

Posted by: Naomi Jarman

Solidea Red Wellness Support TightsThis latest innovation from Solidea is a new and exciting way to invigorate the life of your legs.

Using FIR (far infrared rays) technology, the yarn in the Solidea Red Wellness Opaque Support Tights is manufactured with a mineral additive that effectively converts the thermal energy of the body, so that it is reflected back to the skin tissue for improvement of blood flow on the skins surface. This helps smooth the skin and helps fight the effects of cellulite.

With the graduated compression to help improve the blood flow in your legs, and the fir technology working to improve the skins feel and tone, you'll keep your legs looking and feeling sexier for longer and get a great sense of well being everytime you wear them.

You will not feel any heating sensation and they are not intended for use as thermals, so you can remain comfortable at all times.

Super, smooth opaque support tights with a lightweight graduated compression of 12-15 mmHg, the Solidea Red Wellness Opaque Support Tights are available in 4 colours, Black, Green, Blue and Brown Plum, giving you fashionable options for your wardrobe.

Unlike the micromassage and silver wave anti-cellulite products, these do not leave wave-like furrows in the skin, just a silky smoothness after every wear.
