In recent years, sports physiologists have started to realize that your recovery is just as important as your exercise. And while it's difficult to keep track of complex nutritional plans and training schedules, CEP's Recovery+ Pro Tights have made accelerated recovery as easy as putting on a pair of pants.
Putting the 'recovery' into the Recovery+ Tights, CEP gave these tights highly compressive qualities. Now, you hear the term 'compression' thrown out there often. However, its true meaning, especially for recovery applications, is typically shrouded in ubiquity. So, forget what you've heard about lactic acid suppression, and enter into the world of enhanced blood circulation. Without getting too scientific, CEP designed the Recovery+ tights to have different strengths of medi-grade compression in accordance to a position's distance from the heart. This is also known as graduated compression. So, the further from the heart, the stronger the fabric compression, and the closer to the heart, the lower the compression. Basically, this design places a pressure on the veins and arteries that forces the circulatory system to work faster. Accordingly, your muscles receive more oxygen, and thus muscle fatigue is thoroughly reduced.
Not surprisingly, while the aforementioned attributes would be enough for most to call it a day, CEP was just getting started. For the actual fit of the Recovery+ tights, CEP approached the cut with an anatomic, multi-paneled, and contoured designed. This means that the panels are meant to support specific muscle groups, while the shape perfectly conforms to the body. In fact, CEP claims that these tights have been proven to accelerate recovery of injuries ranging from pulled hamstrings, injured quads, and IT band issues.
And while, yes, the tights feel quite tight at first, you'll quickly notice that they don't inhibit movement at all. This is due to the selective placement of two fabrics with different deniers and compositions. Additionally, the legs feature a seamless construction, while the few seams that actually do exist have been designed to lay flat.
To use the tights, CEP recommends wearing them for at least three to four hours after your activity. And given their next-to-skin fit, it's easy to wear them under your pants for long drives or on the plane.
The CEP Recovery+ Pro Tights are available in the color Black and in the sizes II, III, and IV. Please note that these tights are intended to fit tightly. However, they are true to size, so don't be afraid of the overall tightness when you pull them out of the bag.
