  • SoCal Cycling League Finals

    blog_story_image_socal-cyclingBio Skin sponsored mountain biking athlete Ellis Cobb fills us in on her SoCal High School Cycling League Finals.

    “Mountain biking is a sport for crazy people, and we all know it.  Every other ride or so, I ask myself, “Why am I out here?

  • Compression Improves Muscle Recovery Time


    A study published in Journal of Orthopedic Sports Physical Therapy by William Kraemer from Ball State University looked at the effects of compression on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).  That’s the soreness you feel 1-2 days after a really hard workout.

    In the study, 20 women performed 2 sets of arm curls and then were randomized into 2 groups with one group being instructed to wear a compressive sleeve for the next 5 days.  Researchers then collected data on elbow range of motion, arm circumference, creatine kinase levels (a naturally-occurring chemical that accompanies muscle damage), and perceived muscle soreness.

    Compared to the control group, the group wearing the compression sleeves showed better range of motion, less swelling, lower levels of creatine kinase, improved recovery of force production, and reported less perceived soreness.

    Use Bio Skin compression sleeves and apparel to help you train harder by allowing your muscles recover faster and preventing swelling and soreness that could slow you down.
