Workout Wednesday with #FitnessFoundations

 Well it's Wednesday again, and as many of you know I have been participating in a Virtual Marathon with a group of women who are there to motivate and empower one another in our fitness journey.  Since beginning my journey I have had some pretty painful days!  I thought surely exercise was not for me!  I was suffering from shin splints for the first week or so, and then runner's knee after that.

After some anti-inflammatory, ice, and some encouraging words I got my booty back out there!  My shins were still giving me issues of burning pain and fatigue!  After doing some research I thought maybe I needed to give compression a try!  Fitness Foundations sent me a pair of their calf compression sleeves to try out in exchange for an honest review!  They designed their compression sleeves with the highest quality material to help train harder and recover faster.  This sounded like just what I needed to keep strong on my journey!!

So I awoke on Saturday morning, had my cup of Joe and some breakfast.  I got dressed in my fitness clothes opened the little package and pulled out my calf compression sleeves.  The material was breathable and comfortable with a very snug fit!  My husband was a little jealous that he didn't get a pair!  They were black, so they matched my outfit perfect and had these really cool reflective stripes! The reflective stripes will be cool when the weather warms up and I need to run more at night or early morning.  It's a great added feature!

Fitness Foundations currently have one size of calf compression sleeves, that are good for men or women with a calf circumference between 11 and 16 inches.  The compression sleeves use true graduated compression to improve your performance by stabilizing the lower leg muscles and improving blood flow.  These are said to prevent shin splints and muscle soreness.

This was my first experience using compression sleeves during my workout, and I  must admit I was pleasantly surprised at how great they worked!!  My husband and I went close to five miles and I had no pain what so ever in my shins!!  I am thrilled about this!  I also noticed that they did help with my blood flow!  My ankles were not as swelled up afterwards as when I normally return from running! So I give Fitness foundations Calf Compression Sleeves two thumbs up for a great product!

Now I just need some for my knees and I'll be good as new ;)

  1. Yeah, but i think compression socks only give to you a TEMPORARY relief. In my blog I talk about the causes of shin splints and the lasting relief treatments.
