Avoiding injury is vital to make it through triathlon season successfully. One way to help out your tired body is through veino-muscular compression technology - essentially a tight sleeve that increases efficient venous feedback from your feet to your heart, reducing the accumulation of toxins while increasing oxygenation to the muscles. This increased flow is said to improve lactic acid clearance, which helps you recover much more quickly and reduces muscle fatigue to help you train harder for longer. Equmen is especially great for this as their compression system reduces the shockwaves produced when your foot hits the ground.Jurica Cvjetko Triathlete Croatia, Europe

The importance of good posture on health
"The garments definitely help with postural support"
Kevin Lidlow, Phyiotherapist
A powerful element of physical change that often goes overlooked is good posture. Humans were built to stand up straight - however, with our modern lives spent hunched over a computer, sitting in a car, or general inactivity, our bodies end up in an unhealthy, slumped position which can directly affect how we wllok and feel.
Good posture is key to feeling your best every day, both physically and psychologically. One of the best benefits about improving posture is that the results are immediates. With many of the other lifestyle elements, such as diet or exercise, there is a lag between the time when the exercise is performed or diet is embarked upon, and the results. However, with posture you can realize the benefits right away.
Good posture can deliver:
- Optimal organ and muscle function for maximum energy and endurance.
- Imrproved biomechanics for the best possible muscle performance.
- Pain and fatigue minimisation in the neck, shoulders, and upper back.
- Greater concentration and mental focus.
- A flatter and stronger stomach.
- A more confident and youthful appearance.
