Compression gear - Does it really work?


Wearing Compression
Shorts post-exercise
I know, I have been silent for some time, but it has been summer holidays and now school has started again. Now, back to the subject.
 
I see a lot of people at the gym wearing compression gear. Socks, shorts, tights or shirts. But what evidence is there to suggest that it actually does improve your performance in the gym.
 
I've read a few studies(1–3) about the effects of compression gear during and post-workout.
