2XU Mid-Rise Compression Tights

What we wear to the gym is quite possibly the biggest decision we make other than actually committing to a fitness regime in the first place. We want to look and feel good when working out in front of other people and so we put a great emphasis into the expensive gym clothing that we buy for this fantastic cause as we take control of our lives and build a stronger, healthier body. But what separates one gym-fashion brand from another? I always thought that leggings were leggings and it’s simply the pattern that defines them, but that was until I discovered compression tights and thanks to 2XU my workouts have just hit a whole new high.

2XU Mid-Rise Compression Tights

Here I am wearing a size UK8 compression tights which are engineered for maximum comfort during activity and post-exercise recovery. Made from a mix of nylon, elastane and polyamide they are breathable, lightweight and supportive of the major muscles with the high waistband supporting the core to enhance stability and improve technique throughout every workout. Containing high filament yarns the tights wick moisture away from the skin, are antibacterial and have a UPF50+ sun protection.

The compression tights firm the body making them ideal for low and high impact training, competitions and recovery with the graduated compression helping to promote maximum blood flow, accelerating muscle warm up, reducing fatigue through less muscle oscillation and minimising muscle soreness. Because of this support the tights provide a higher output of energy during each workout with the risk of injuries greatly reduced and agility heightened. The abductor, glute, quad, hamstring and calf muscles are specially protected with flat lock seams to reduce chaffing and provide a flawless second-skin fit.

As you can see the tights fit me exceptionally, hold my post-pregnancy stomach in place and keep me strong and supported without turning me into a squishy shrink-wrapped sausage. This is my first time wearing compression tights and it has made the most amazing difference to my workout because of it; I would say it’s pushed at least 15% onto my usual ability and I don’t feel half as smashed from legday because of them. They’re flexible, comfortable and incredibly wearable because they don’t show up sweat patches, dig in or slip down like traditional leggings. Priced at £75.00 from 2XU they’re the one piece of gym kit that everybody should own.
