Our product highlight series covers our E75 line of compression sportswear. These educational posts will give you a better idea of all the compression options that we carry, as well as recommended usages for each option. This week, we’ll be highlighting Enerskin’s Compression Shorts.
Many sports and athletic activities engage the lower-body core, which is made up of the hip abductor, adductor, lower abs, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and IT band. These are the muscle groups that are fully engaged during activities such as running, weight lifting, or jumping.
Think of some of these activities and the forces, twisting motions, and direction changes involved. It’s pretty clear that protection, support, and improved recovery are essential in preventing injury and maintaining performance through multiple training sessions.
This is where Enerskin’s E75 Compression Shorts really shine. They are an extremely versatile piece essential for athletes looking to up their game.
E75 Compression shorts
Enerskin’s E75 Compression Shorts support and protect the key muscles and tendons that make up the lower-body core. These shorts fit from the waist to just above the knees, providing targeted compression and support throughout the area in between.
The E75 Compression Shorts are composed of 65% nylon and 35% spandex. Our revolutionary Enerflex fabric was carefully tested and developed to provide the exceptional hold of professional-grade compression with superior comfort even during the hardest workouts. The 4-way stretch allows adequate freedom of movement and all day comfort.
Enerskin uses a patented silicone printing technology that allows for multiple layers of silicone tape to be printed directly onto the compression fabric. The integrated tape increases the level of compression - up to 200% more than typical compression gear - and prevents the fabric from overstretching, so compression never diminishes.
Another aspect of good performance is the mental aspect. When you’re fully concentrating on the game, race, or workout, you want to minimize the little things that can become full-blown distractions. This is where the E75 Compression Shorts also shine. Our shorts offer advanced moisture wicking properties that keep skin dry and cool, while Enerflex’s anti-microbial science fights odor-causing bacteria to keep Enerskin gear fresher longer.
Underwear or Outerwear?
Compression shorts are designed to be worn as either underwear or outerwear. Typically, underwear compression shorts use less compression and provide less muscle coverage. They are meant more for comfort during athletic activity. The E75 Compression Shorts were designed as outerwear, providing enhanced compression and support. However, they are versatile enough to be worn on their own or underneath additional layers, such as basketball or running shorts.
Whether for running, jumping, ball sports, or weight lifting, the E75 Compression Shorts are an excellent and versatile piece to add to your athletic wear collection. They provide solid compression that enhances recovery and subsequent performance, as well as support that protects key muscle groups and tendons. Wear them on their own or layer up during colder months.
Enerskin is excited to offer FDA-approved athletic gear to anyone that wants to up their own sports, training, or recovery regimen. We put our money where our mouth is and have backed up our products with the highest-quality materials and research since day one.
