Kick Off Your New Year’s Resolution With Compression Socks

Getting healthy is probably the number one New Year’s resolution that people make. This common process usually revolves around putting together an eating plan that promotes wellness and increasing the amount of exercise. If that sounds like New Year’s goals and resolutions that you’ll be making this year, we have some useful advice on how to make your trips to the gym, or any exercise you do, easier for you. It’s the use of graduated compression socks. Let’s explore how adopting top compression socks from Dr. Motion into your New Year’s resolution fitness goals will help you kickoff 2021 in the best way possible. 

New Year’s Resolution Fitness Goals Need Compression Socks

The sad fact is that most people aren’t able to keep up with their New Year’s resolutions. That was according to a study done by the University of Scranton. They followed 200 people’s New Year’s resolution journey to find that only 19 percent of those participants maintained their goals for two years.

One of the reasons that people stop exercising is due to pain and discomfort. The recovery period after intense exercise can be difficult which is where compression socks can help.

Compression socks help to prevent shin splints while running and walking. That’s the pain you get in the muscles of your shins from the impact of your foot hitting the ground. Compression socks can also reduce swelling after a workout and decrease muscle fatigue and soreness.

Benefits of Compression Socks While Exercising

So now that you know exactly how compression socks will help you recover from your workouts, did you know that they can also make your workouts better? While you are exercising, compression socks increase your circulation. That’s going to give your muscles more beneficial oxygen to work harder with less fatigue.

Plus, you won’t feel as sore during your workouts, and muscle cramps are prevented because compression socks will help prevent a build-up of lactic acid. That lactic acid in your muscles is going to make you feel some pain and soreness. Preventing some of that build-up will allow you to continue working out at a higher intensity level so that you see results sooner.

Top Compression Socks for Athletic Wear

Dr. Motion makes a variety of athletic wear compression socks that are graduated compression socks. These types of graduated compression socks are great everyday wear during exercise for both men and women. 

For unisex styles in Dr. Motion’s Sports Compression Socks category, each style is geared towards graduated compression which has a higher compression level of 15-20 mmHg. If you are curious, regular compression socks have a milder compression level of 8-15 mmHg.

No matter what kind of activity you do, graduated compression socks will work for you. That includes biking, hiking, running, Crossfit classes or even yoga and pilates.

There are two different styles, including knee-high compression socks and leg sleeves which allow you to wear regular socks on your feet. They come in fun prints, stripes and ombre pattern styles too. The price point at $10 is really affordable for a pair of beneficial compression socks so you’ll want to have a few pairs in your sock drawer.
