Compression Shorts & Pants
Compression shorts and compression pants are pretty much designed to absorb sweat, keeping the body warm and assisting in the prevention of muscle strain by allowing maximum blood flow during and after a basketball game or basketball training session. Wearing the compression tights or shorts will ultimately help improve players performance during a basketball game.
There are a number of benefits for wearing compression shorts and pants during training and basketball games.
- Help keep the body warm particularly around the large leg muscles which is used a lot in basketball for running and jumping
- Compression tights can help reduce muscle strain by assisting with circulation
- By wearing compression tights and shorts it can enhance the players performance by improving blood flow around the body and improve oxygenation of the muscle tissue.
- A lot of players purely wear compression tights or shorts for comfort while playing basketball.
- Quicker recovery after a strenuous session, assisting with muscle recovery.
Crew socks are great because they are a high cut and because most basketball shoes have a higher top, the socks help stop your shoes rubbing on your ankles.
