IM­PROVED PER­FOR­MANCE

You can now an­a­lyse your ex­er­cise tech­nique and form just like elite ath­letes do with this Mo­tion Pro com­pres­sion gear. How? The gar­ments have added pivot point mark­ers to help you see if your body is prop­erly aligned dur­ing a move­ment, plus the handy Mo­tion Com­pan­ion app demon­strates cor­rect form. 776BC Women’s Mo­tion Pro Se­ries Tank 1.0, $ 80, and Tights, $170, 776bc.com.au

BET­TER EN­DURANCE

Skins’ new range claims to help fight fa­tigue and re­duce the chance of in­jury. Strate­gi­cally placed ‘pro­pri­o­cep­tive power bands’ act like strap­ping to sup­port the body’s big­gest mus­cles, so if you work out at a high level for a long time, you’re able to con­trol your move­ments ef­fec­tively. An er­gonom­i­cally shaped waistband also pro­vides lower back sta­bil­ity and core sup­port. Skins K-Pro­prium Men’s Com­pres­sion Long Tights, $199.99, skins.net/au

PREGNANY

PREGNANCY These med­i­cal-grade com­pres­sion shorts are a life­saver for preg­nant women suf­fer­ing from pelvic pain. They’re er­gonom­i­cally shaped to re­duce stress on the pelvis and im­prove sta­bil­ity in the lower back. We tried them and give them a big thumbs up. Health fund re­bates are also avail­able. SRC Pregnancy Shorts, $189, srchealth.com LON TRA

LONG-HAUL TRAVEL

While these eye-pop­pingly pink socks are great for all kinds of ac­tiv­i­ties, they’re par­tic­u­larly good on long-haul flights to min­imise an­kle swelling and blood pool­ing. They also come in a de­mure blue, black or white. 2XU Elite Com­pres­sion Socks, $ 65, 2xu.com/au
