SOMA – 2XU Compression

If you’re a major league sports fan you’ve probably already heard of 2XU. They provide a wide variety of garments that offer muscle containment, increase circulation resulting in heightened proprioception meaning that the wearer becomes more alert and agile.

The human performance advantages of 2XU have already caught the eye of several SOF units who are in the process of trying garments out.

    Sounds like the holographic bracelest are not selling anymore so snake oil leotards are the new hotness. Any human studies?

      Compression has been used for ages. I’m not sure how you can tie it in with snake oil.

    • There is not snake oil in 2XU compression. We are the a Performance and Recovery Medically Graduated Compression. The science behind compression and how we manufacture the products and the fabrics we use will help you Recover Faster and Train better. no smoke and mirror.

    @ John, Studies abound. Compression started in the Medical field and crossed over to Athletic. That’s why Compression is rated in mmHg and above a certain level it is prescribed. An example would be in socks if you go above 30mmHg you get into prescription often for diabetics while performance socks usually range form 20-30mmHg. One SOF individual I once discussed Compression with deals in human performance and has a degree in exercise physiology from a very respected school.

    Too bad there’s maybe five individuals outside of Group that look good enough to wear a compression shirt. The combat shirts were hard enough to look at when rolling around a FOB of any kind. man tits everywhere.

    I love to read studies regardyng the human factors opportunity cost. In other words, what lis the user gaining versus what is he-she compromising?

    Sorry but I don’t buy this great enhancement. Old folks with diabetes, perhaps, top shape operators? Doub it psychological , makes me feel good type of thing pethaps, but real gains in reaction, recovery, performance etc I bet no one can answer.

    qualifies asSnake oil until somebody proofs us wrong…
