Totally nerding out and going to work like this:
Think you know what compression is for? Compression is so much more than just for thrombosis and marathon running! It’s for marathon recovery and training, for long work days, hard workouts, long runs, & looking super fly.
My poor feet and legs can become so swollen from standing on my feet all day at the pharmacy and then add marathon training in…and I usually have some pretty swollen puppies.
Theses socks were a God send to me. Thanks TIUX!
So why Tiux vs other leading brands?
The biggest reason for me is affordability. Finally an affordable option. For more info on how they keep costs SO low check out their about page HERE.
As a certified personal trainer do I advocate compression? Yes, in short I do. But not necessarily to build fitness, PR, or race faster but because they are awesome for recovery. There are some rough studies out there on compression socks for athletes and performance, but nothing quite conclusive yet. However, there’s nothing that suggests it’s harmful.
Benefits may include:
- Increase in blood flow, increasing circulation throughout the legs aiding in free radical flushing
- Decrease lactic acid build up
- Decrease in swollen feet
- Quicker recovery
- Quicker recovery = quicker return to training hard
- I loved the color!
- Great fit. True to size
- Not as itchy as other brands
- Not too warm (ran in the 60-70*)
- Plenty of cushion on heel
- Compression in all the places
- Felt like a total leg massage
All I kept thinking was I wish this compression went all the way up to my butt! It felt that good! I have worn them running and at work and I will say I experienced less swelling for sure!!
At the end of the day I feel compression is a totally personal choice. And if you do choose it I strongly recemmend TIUX because you’re saving some moolah. The extra cash could go into another race fee. Yes, please!! If you need further reason to purchase from TIUX you should know they are a giving back company. They give to MAG Mines Advisory Group. For more info on that click on the photo below.
They keep things simple with few color choices, no store front buildings, and cutting out the middleman. I’m all for simplicity! Especially if it saves lives, saves a dollar, and gives me better recovery.
So my good friends at TIUX have graciously offered to give one of my stellar readers a pair. Luck YOU!
