Abstract

Learning Objective

To understand the efficacy of compression garments on endurance running performance and recovery.

CONDENSED VERSION AND BOTTOM LINE

The use of compression garments in endurance events is increasing. Equivocal evidence exists when examining compression garments and aerobic performance. Utilization of compression garments as a recovery modality may reduce symptoms associated with exercise-induced muscle damage and may decrease recovery time between exercise bouts, allowing endurance runners to train more effectively.
