Why SWEAT IT OUT® COOL COMPRESSION® Gear is Even More Beneficial in the Winter

New Year’s resolution season is almost upon us, and if you’re like most Americans, you’re having visions of hitting the gym, shedding excess pounds and getting in the best shape of your life in 2020. 

There’s no reason you can’t accomplish that goal if you stick to a regular workout routine — and avoid getting injured by wearing compression tops, shorts and tights from the SWEAT IT OUT® COOL COMPRESSION® brand. (Shown here is the 3019 Performance Compression Sleeveless Shirt.)

Our gear can help to prevent injury by:

  • Increasing blood flow to the muscles
  • Reduce muscle vibration and fatigue
  • Stabilizing and supporting muscles during intense activity
  • Speeding up recovery by flushing the body of lactic acid and other waste

Winter is an ideal time to add SWEAT IT OUT® COOL COMPRESSION® apparel to your workout wardrobe, besides that it’s the holidays and you can ask other people to buy it for you. Here’s why:

Additional Warmth

Rolling out of bed on a frigid winter morning and hitting the weights or even the treadmill is a muscle pull or ligament strain waiting to happen. Our compression gear will keep your muscles stable, loose and warm so your body can move fluidly even if it’s not properly stretched and warmed up. Although, that certainly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t warm up — stretching is critical! Compression gear is also ideal for those who are new to working out or going from sedentary to active overnight.  

Less Fatigue

Winter has a way of sapping your energy, and tired muscles are more prone to injury. Fatigue can compromise your form while lifting weights or performing dynamic, explosive movements, and utilizing bad form is a good way to get hurt. In addition to stabilizing muscles and promoting good posture and alignment, compression gear decreases muscle vibration, reducing the fatigue factor.

Injuries = Seasonal Blues

Exercise is so important during the winter months — and not just because it keeps you physically healthy, helps you lose weight and makes you look great in your jeans. It’s a proven mood booster! With fewer daylight hours and colder temperatures, it’s easy enough to slide into a negative mindset during the winter, but if you suffer an injury that prevents you from working out and keeps you cooped up in your home, it can affect your entire quality of life.
