Socks that rock your re­cov­ery

Shape (Singapore) - - Get Fit -

Though the jury may still be out on whether com­pres­sion socks can pump up your per­for­mance, new re­search at Elon Univer­sity sug­gests they have a feel-good af­ter-ef­fect: Women who sported a pair dur­ing a 5K run re­ported less next-day mus­cle sore­ness than when they wore reg­u­lar socks. That means you’ll be more likely to get back out there in­stead of feel­ing like you need to park it on the couch, says au­thor Svet­lana Ne­pocatych. Try a style from 2XU’s com­pres­sion line (from $79) for your next run, Cross­fit WOD or kick­box­ing class (any­thing goes) to reap the ben­e­fits.
