The great benefit of wearing compression shorts is that they help prevent muscle injury, strain and fatigue – they fit snuggly to the body and can beworn as an undergarment. They also draw off sweat from the skin by capillary action (wicking) which prevents sweat rashes and sore skin; plus they keep everything in place that needs to be kept in place. They are usually made of material similar to spandex.
Compression shorts are a very important part of the triathlon kit where athletes want to enhance their performance as best they can and also do everything possible to help avoid injury and strain and also promote quick recovery after exerting themselves.
