A study conducted in Japan showed that it reduces the loss of strength after training.

Training regularly improves strength. But recovery is just as important as exercise. And at that point, bandages and compression clothing are widely used for running and in the practice of different sports disciplines for facilitate recovery and prevent injuries. Now a study in Japan has shown that compression garments also reduce the loss of strength after intense exercise.

The team, led by Assistant Professor János Négyesi and Professor Ryoichi Nagatomi from Tohoku University Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering used a computerized dynamometer to train healthy people to fatigue. They used the same equipment to detect changes in peak force and the sense of position of the knee joint at the end of the training, 24 hours later and one week later.

The results published in European Journal of Applied Physiology showed that wearing a compression garment below the knee during training compensates for the effects of fatigue on maximum strength just after exercise and on the day after. In other words: one can start the next maximum intensity strength training earlier if you used a compression garment below the knee in the previous workout.

Although compression clothing reduces loss of strength, their findings reaffirmed that they do not provide protection against knee joint position errors.

“Our previous studies focused solely on the effects of compression garments in the sense of joint position,” Négyesi said. “This work found that garments have the potential to reduce strength loss after strenuous exercise, which can help us better understand how applying a compression garment during exercise can decrease the risk of musculoskeletal injuries during sports activities “.

Researchers believe that wearing a compression garment below the knee during regular workouts it’s profitable due to the mechanical support and compression of the tissue it provides.

In future research, the team aims to detect whether maximum intensity programs lasting weeks produce different results than current findings to determine the longitudinal effects of compression garments.
