There is a lot of good research that supports the benefits of wearing compression gear, especially when it comes to aiding in recovery from exercise. Elite athletes swear by the benefits, and these people need to be at peak levels of performance to keep their jobs. There is both physiological and psychological benefits to wearing compression gear.
Bloke Undees reached out to me to see if I wanted to try out some of their gear. After looking at their website and seeing the sweet designs, I jumped at the opportunity.
