      A simple request to SSD-Can you ask XGO folks to cite the research that supports their claims?
      “-Reduces muscle vibration to lessen fatigue and maintain power output
      -Keeps muscles aligned to increase repetitive muscle power and efficiency”
      Functional sports apparel research is my job and I’m interested in what evidence they have to support their claims.
      As I’ve stated before, I look to SSD as a beacon of truth in a world rife with BS.
      If their products work as advertised and they can support their claims with peer-reviewed science, I’ll be the first in line to buy their complete line.

        I also work with a bunch of sport science guys, so I’ll just echo you: Word.

        Compression is the new snake oil.

        Came here to say the same thing. Like other buzzword products – elevation masks (also covered here very positively by SSD) and ice bath crap come to mine – compression for “performance” is just a fad.

        I am big believer in biomapped, progressive compression for medical reasons – look at compression socks for diabetics with poor circulation and for people prone to DVT. However, those two Stamina claims raise all sorts of bullshit flags.
