How Can Calf Sleeves Help You on Your Fitness Journey?

Your fitness contributes significantly to your overall well-being and sense of health and wellness. A large part of your fitness comes from working out, your performance during the workout and thereby your circulation. One of the things that can help with all the aforementioned factors is calf sleeves. Calf sleeves, when worn consistently, are an excellent way to boost your performance, make your exercise more fun, and help keep your circulation actually circulating. Dr. Motion has just the calf sleeves you'll love to help you look and feel great.

What are Calf Sleeves?

Calf sleeves are compression sleeves that reach from your ankle to just below your knee. They help to give your calf muscle extra support and increase circulation in your lower leg. They are designed to help your muscles, both at work and at rest, and help to keep the muscles warm and pliable. In keeping the muscles warm and the circulation moving, your muscles are also able to more easily remove toxins in the muscles, such as a build-up of lactic acid. The increase of pressure on your calf increases the pressure on your circulatory system, this increase in pressure helps to make sure that your calf muscles, and in turn your whole leg, is receiving a more fresh supply of oxygen-rich blood. This higher quality blood is better for your leg muscles and better for your heart as well. Dr. Motion is a brand dedicated to creating the best calf sleeves, and additional products, that help you to increase your health and wellness through improving your performance, fitness and circulation. 


How Can Calf Sleeves Improve Your Performance?

Calf sleeves can play an important part in your performance when exercising. Before we delve into the benefits of calf sleeves, however, it is important to recognize the importance of circulation in your workouts and overall well-being. Circulation, and your circulatory system in general, not only pumps your blood throughout your body, but also helps your muscles to perform, recover, and heal. Your cells take not only oxygen but also nutrients from your blood. Without the benefit of a healthy circulatory system, your muscles would become weak, your workouts would suffer and your recovery would take much longer. In addition, fatigue would plague you, and you would feel more and more tired. 

This is where calf sleeves come in. Calf sleeves apply gentle pressure on your calf muscles and your circulatory system. They help the blood, and the nutrients and oxygen it carries, to make its way through the legs to the rest of the body and through your heart. Calf sleeves help to add compression which helps your arteries to become larger and increase the amount of blood going through your legs. The larger the amount of blood pumping through your system, the larger the amount of oxygen and nutrients your muscles receive. This crescendo of oxygen and nutrients allows your muscles to perform at a higher capacity and recover quickly. This means that in between sets and exercises your muscles are recovering faster and setting you up for the following sets to be better and stronger. That in turn helps you to build more muscle, stamina, and strength, no matter what workout you are participating in. Calf sleeves also reduce the amount of vibration your muscles give off, which in turn, reduces the wear and tear and fatigue your muscles experience.  This also helps to improve your workout and the benefits you experience as a result. Dr. Motion's calf sleeves are a terrific way for your muscles to experience better quality blood, nutrition, and less fatigue every time you use them.
