- Compression tights – anyone tried them? Do they work?
i did 600kms last week , slept in my skins top and trousers after each ride – woke up fully recharged and ready to go. i honestly have never felt like that riding day after day after day…. that included 2 x 10 mile TTs – 250k flat out roadying and the rest were days in the hills !
i reccomend at least trying them – but they may not work for you – i was warned of this before i tried them
suggest trying the trousers first !Posted 7 years agotrail_ratMember

certainly wouldnt bother at home … missus would have a fit im sure
was more a case of CBA getting change im going to sleep …
fair enough – dont buy them all the more for me…. ill keep wearing them and recovering nice and quick 😉Posted 7 years agoGregMayMember
Big convert to compression gear, also a triathlete and a sports scientist so that kinda biases me.
Have used them over the past 4 years and even if its only a placebo effect i have found huge gains in my ability to do multi day hard sessions (100km+ on MTB or 700km+ weeks on the TT bike)
Main gains i have found have been post runs and hard XC type sessions where you are going b*&^s out. whenever the muscles are taking a pounding they can help, along with some nice tasty protein (read steak/chicken not powder and water) and a good bit o'sleep.
As for the sleeping in them, i do, am about to, and its not to bad if the other half does too. Works as a good contraceptive actually….Posted 7 years ago
