Compression helps stabilize muscle tissue, keeping the swelling of muscle fibers at a micro and manageable level. The benefits of compression and the ability of compression to increase oxygen blood flow to the muscles cannot be overstated. Gravity can cause a build-up of fluid in the muscles and surrounding tissue, not only from overuse or repetitive movements, but also during and after exercise. This increased swelling will often result in limited mobility and pain due to inflammation. Without wearing compression, the result can be muscle damage, including micro-tears leading to inflammation. Compression helps reduce the inflammation that might slow down the recovery process and therefore helps reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.I received the Tommie Copper compression garments one week before my marathon. I would of loved to give them a try right away, but I new not to change anything a week before a marathon. However, I've been in the field day and night harvesting and my poor knees have literally been killing me when I'm running the combine. I think it's from sitting in the combine all day. I was trying some braces that I've used in the past when I was having some knee issues. They turned out to be so bulky in the back of the knees, that I had to take them off after 2 hours of being in the combine.

Tommie Copper Calf Sleeves
I've been hearing alot about wearing calf sleeves after doing a marathon or after your long runs, so your calfs aren't as sore the next day. I was so pumped that the calf sleeves got here just before the marathon. What a great way to give them a try, after running 26.2 miles. When I got home that night after running the marathon, I put the calf sleeves on when I got ready for bed. They were not to tight or bulky. I really didn't even notice I had them on. I know after my first marathon, it seemed like my legs were sore for days afterwards. This time when I woke up the next day, my calfs felt really good. I didn't have the soreness as I did with the first marathon. I'm loving these calf sleeves.
|OK, Don't look at my awful knees, but these Tommie Copper calf sleeves are awesome|
Tommie Copper Compression Shirt
After the marathon I was having some awful pain in my back right between the shoulder blades. I'm not sure what caused that, but I couldn't wait to get home and give that Tommie Copper Compression shirt a try, When I went to bed that night I put on the Tommie Copper Compression shirt, not knowing what to expect. It was snug, but not to tight. When I woke up the next morning my back was feeling much better. It was still a little sore, but not like it was the night before. I decided I would wear it to work, just to see if I could get some more of the soreness out. After several days of wearing the Tommie Copper Compression shirt day and night my back was feeling good.
