Compression Tights Won’t Help Runners to Run Faster

A new study, presented at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual meeting, found that compression tights do not reduce muscle fatigue and do not help run faster.compression tights

For their research, a team of researchers had people run on a treadmill for 30 minutes at 80% of their maximum speed, once wearing compression tights and once without them. After the completion of the experiment, scientists found that the muscle vibration, reduced by the tights, didn’t have an effect on fatigue at all, and the runners could not go faster (or farther) while wearing the tights.

Lead author of the study Ajit Chaudhari says: “There is nothing in this study that shows it's bad to wear compression tights.  Every little bit of perception counts when running long distances, so they may help runners in ways we aren't able to measure.”
