Arm Sleeves For Men

What are arm sleeves good for?

Arm sleeves are more than just a fashion trend, they have been used for decades by the world's top athletes across many sports. In fact, any sporting event you attend or watch on TV, you'll more than likely see someone wearing an arm sleeve which is why we will go through a few of the benefits of wearing compression arm sleeves.

The reasons for wearing arm sleeves are multiple but can be summarized to the following: performance and recovery, arm protection from lacerations and burn, and UV protection.

Top 5 Reasons Athletes Wear Compression Arm Sleeves

1) Protection

Padded Football Sleeve

In football, elbow injuries can end the season for the player. To help protect this body part, you may notice athletes wearing arm sleeves with a flexible pad on the forearm or elbow portion of their arm. The simple added padding on an arm sleeve has proven to reduce the risk of injury during hard hits or tackles to the ground.

Outside of impact injuries, compression arm sleeves act as a second skin that can help provide general protection from turf burn, skin lacerations, bumps, and also significant protection from the sun's UV rays.

2) Faster Recovery

Compression arm sleeves are primarily worn for the benefits of compression they provide. Reputable arm sleeves use advanced fabrics to help muscles that are sore or overworked recover faster. In fact, various studies have shown that a light squeeze to the arm muscle helps stabilize the muscle and increase blood flow, both of which help in recovery after strenuous activity.

It's important to note that the sleeve must have the right fabric and fit to receive the best results.

3) Better Blood Circulation

The compression aspect of compression arm sleeves is to provide compression to keep circulation flowing during your entire game or training. As previously mentioned, increased blood flow can protect muscles from future injury as well as provide support to previously injured areas.

4) Enhance Performance

From Basketball players to NFL pros and major league pitchers, arm motions are the most important aspect of their playing careers. The same compression benefits that aid recovery for athletes also enhances game time performance.

The added muscle support and improved blood circulation gives many athletes the extra edge over the competition.

5) Look Cool

The statement is true: Look good, feel good, play good. We have to admit that arm sleeves not only benefit your physical health, they also look great. With a plethora of colors and designs to choose from, you will be sure to find the perfect sleeve for your needs that compliments your team colors or sends a message to support a cause or spread awareness.

What are arm sleeves for in football?

Football is not only extremely hard to play but the game itself can be extremely harsh on the limbs and joints. By wearing compression sleeves, football players can significantly improve their ability to train and compete. Here are a few benefits compression arm sleeves can bring to the game of football:

  • Prevent Muscle Strain: The unique compacting design helps prevent movements outside normal ranges of motion and keep your muscles
  • Protect Limbs: Compression arm sleeves add a layer of protection against certain nicks and reduce the impact to the skin upon impact
  • Reduce Swelling: When playing football or training in the gym, an excess of fluids collects in the muscles tissues. The swelling can be painful and decreased mobility. Arm sleeves increase blood flow circulation which helps reduce swelling.
  • Increase Endurance: By helping supply more oxygenated blood to fatigued muscles, compression arm sleeves can directly increase muscle endurance.
  • Gain Support: Compression arm sleeves prevent overextension and ensure your muscles stay aligned when in motion. The subtle stability they provide can be crucial to maintaining accuracy of throw and when you catch the ball.
  • Improve Recovery: The compression technology arm sleeves provide helps promote blood circulation to the limbs which replenishes them and gives the energy needed to bounce back.

What are arm compression sleeves used for?

The main function of arm sleeves is to increase blood flow circulation to the areas they surround. Reputable arm sleeves will be woven in a very scientific fashion that works to apply specific pressure and compression around the arm's bicep muscle in order to promote optimal blood flow and oxygen circulation to and from one body part to another. Secondary functions of compression arm sleeves include: injury protection, temperature regulation, skin protection from burns and UV rays, and expedited recovery times.

Why do athletes wear arm covers?

Athletes use compression arm sleeves for the benefits of the compression they provide.Various sports medicine studies have shown that compression helps stabilize the arm muscles and increase blood flow, which helps recovery after rigorous training/game activity or minor injuries.

Compression garments also reduce the amount of muscular vibration. This reduces the muscle fatigue you may experience during exercise which can mean improved athletic endurance.

Do arm sleeves work?

The benefits of wearing compression sleeves can only be felt when having the right fit and fabric.

In fact, if the sleeve is too tight, blood circulation becomes restricted which actually can be harmful to recovery, while oversized loose fitting sleeves slip down and provide no compression.
