They'll definitely require a serious pants dance to get into, but once you have the 2XU Mid Rise Compression Tights on, you won't want to take them off. With graduated compression from PWX FLEX fabric, the hardest working muscles of your legs will receive wraparound support to decrease muscle oscillation, which often results in fatigue and soreness. Compression also has been shown to improve circulation, helping your quads, hamstrings, calves, and glutes flush out lactic acid recover faster than they would on their own. You can certainly use these compression tights as post-workout recovery wear, but we'd keep them on for any type of running or fitness workout, as the breathable fabric and wide waistband suit the tights well for a range of workouts. 2XU worked to ensure that the construction of the tights helps you maintain freedom of movement, which has been a criticism of some compression clothing, and the Invista Lycra that comprises the main body of the tights maintains breathability and while continuously wicking moisture away from your skin as you sweat.
