Legend Compression Sleeves

Many may have noticed that I’ve been wearing blue calf sleeves from LEGEND Compression over the past month. Why do I use compression sleeves? They help with recovery and increase blood circulation in my calves. Personally, I’ve found calf sleeves to be the most useful for long runs, races, and playing ultimate frisbee.

Here are a few things I love about the LEGEND Compression Leg Sleeves:

First, they are so soft! Since using them a dozen times they are still soft and have held their shape quite well.

Second, the color. The blue color is wonderful! They are bright but not too bright and match much of the workout clothes I own, which is a huge plus. They also offer other super fun colors including Aqua and Yellow!

Third, they are breathable. I wore them to work under my jeans after a speed workout and I did not have to take them off half way through my work day. I didn’t notice I was wearing them all day for recovery.

There is one thing I don’t like, the bottom seam. Compared to other calf sleeves, these are hard to get off. The bottom seam is so tight I am afraid of ripping them and it is starting to fray.

I like these calf sleeves a lot! LEGEND Compression does a great job making their sleeves just tight enough to give you support without being uncomfortably tight. It makes a world of difference especially when using sleeves for recovery.

I highly recommend trying a pair of LEGEND Compression Leg Sleeves for yourself! Use the discount code “rave20” to save 20% off your online order.

Do you use compression as part of your recovery training? Let me know in the comments.

    I love the power band on the ankle, it doesn’t dig into my skin the way some other brands do. I wear these mostly for long runs, or on days when my legs are tired and need a little extra support.
