Zensah Compression Gear's


As the demand for quality sports wear increases, runners and athletes of all ages are now on the look-out for new and effective ways to improve their performance, whether it’s by using specialized running shoes or by donning ultra-aerodynamic garments. But now, with the introduction of seamless compression gear from Zensah, one of the world’s leading compression sportswear brands, runners from all over the Philippines can now enjoy the full benefits that quality compression gear has to offer.

Runner with injured leg

For many runners, injury and muscle fatigue can be a problem, especially when they’ve been training long and hard for events like 5Ks and full marathons. Despite having the energy and the willpower to go on running, sometimes the pain can be too much, which is why having the right gear is of utmost importance. As the old adage goes, “The best defense is a good offense,” and when it comes to keeping you injury-free, compression gear is your best bet.

For the uninitiated, compression garments provide support for the body by applying varying degrees of compression to it. It keeps the muscles warm, thus preventing strain and muscle fatigue. And by wicking moisture away from the skin, it also effectively prevents chafing and rashes, that can cause blistering, which can slow you down.

So, whether you’ve just started the habit or are a lifelong runner, here are some things you should know about how Zensah compression-wear can benefit you:

More than Circulation Poster

Improves blood circulation – For more than half a century now, compression garments have been used in treating illnesses like diabetes, edema (swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs), and deep vein thrombosis by improving blood circulation, bringing valuable oxygen to those hard-working muscles and increasing blood flow.


Reduces recovery time – By improving blood flow, compression gear speeds up the removal of metabolic waste, thus reducing the presence of lactic acid in the body. If you’ve ever experienced pain and cramping the day after a particularly grueling workout, lactic acid is the culprit. It’s a by-product produced during exercise or any kind of strenuous activity that contributes to muscle soreness and fatigue. Zensah compression leg sleeves effectively decrease the dreaded delayed onset muscle soreness or DOMS, so you can hit the pavement when you want to, without having to wait for muscle fatigue to wear off.


Prevents injury – Compression leg sleeves support the calf in a way that regular socks don’t; through graduated compression, the muscles in the calf and shin are compressed, reducing the damage caused by continuous movement and impact from long-distance running. Shin splints are a common injury for many runners. With Zensah leg sleeves, you’ll be able to get instant relief from a debilitating, and inconvenient, injury.

Provides the perfect ergonomic fit – Zensah leg sleeves are engineered with chevron and micro ribbing which provides support for the calf muscle and minimizes fatigue, while Zensah Tech+ compression socks employ ultra-zone ribbing that improve ankle and arch stability ensuring a better, more comfortable run.

Zensah compression leg sleeves and Tech+ compression socks are the ultimate in athletic apparel, and are guaranteed to keep you comfortable and injury-free throughout every run.

They also have Bra , Compression Socks, arm sleeve, compression thights and compression short’s as well.

Zensah compression-wear is now available in the following outlets: Runnr, Planet Sports, R.O.X., Arena.

How to Return to Training After Time Off


Training for a marathon (or half-marathon) seldom goes exactly according to plan. Setbacks occur—work or family obligations take precedence; illness or injury derails workouts. Generally speaking, if you miss a week of training, you can jump back into your plan as long as you were consistent and diligent with your workouts for at least four to six weeks before the break. But if your downtime stretches from 10 days to two weeks (or more), you have to re-evaluate your comeback strategy. The first move? Try not to panic. “Take a deep breath,” says Matt Forsman, a San Francisco—based running coach. “Whatever you do, don’t try to cram in the runs you’ve missed. This may increase your risk of injury and may hurt your efforts.” Instead, consider what caused your layoff and how close you are to race day when you’re able to resume training. Those answers will help determine the best plan to get you back on track.
Life interrupted training and you resume running…

Six weeks out from race day: The goal here is to restore momentum and endurance without pushing it. For the first two weeks back, reduce each weekday run by a mile and slow your pace by 15 to 30 seconds per mile, says Forsman. Stick to your scheduled long run; if the distance seems daunting, break it into two runs spaced at least four hours apart. After that, resume training at the point you’d be at if you hadn’t gotten sidetracked.

Four weeks out: Your primary goal is to get in that last long run. For the first week back, follow the mileage and pacing strategy above. Run your final monster-miler three weeks out, but at 10 to 20 seconds per mile slower than normal, then start your taper. The slower pace helps compensate for the fitness you may have lost during the break, Forsman says.

Two weeks out: At this point, chances are good that you missed your last long run. Let it go, or risk going into your big day not fully recovered, says Forsman. Resume your plan at the point where you’d be if you’d never taken a break, and follow through with your scheduled taper. If you’re set on squeezing in one last superlong effort, break it into two: 10 miles in the morning, 10 in the evening, with self-massage, an ice bath, refueling, and rest in between. Complete both of these runs 15 to 30 seconds per mile slower than normal.
Illness derailed your schedule and you resume running…

Six weeks out from race day: Proceed with caution. “Longer and higher-tempo runs suppress immunity and can cause a relapse,” says David Nieman, Dr.P.H., head of the Human Performance Laboratory at Appalachian State University. For your first week back, run/walk half the distance of your scheduled weekday runs (run three to five minutes/walk one minute), and reduce your long run by one to two miles. That second week back, increase your weekday runs to 75 percent of what’s on tap for that week, add a few strides after a couple of runs, and do your long run as scheduled, says Jay Johnson, a coach and director of Boulder Running Camps in Colorado. Skip speedwork during those first two weeks, then resume training as normal.

Four weeks out: For your first week back, run/walk your workouts as described above. Complete a final long run of no more than 17 to 18 miles three weeks out, says Johnson. Proceed with your three-week taper, but be realistic. If you missed crucial long runs, “you’ll have to face the fact that you probably can’t run the marathon you want,” says Johnson.

Two weeks out: “Marathons [and halfs] are stressful, and with only two weeks left, you are at a much higher risk for a relapse,” says Nieman. That said, you can run, but your goal now is simply to finish. For the two weeks leading up to your event, run easy and reduce the longest run of your taper to 70 percent of the distance.
Injury disrupted your routine and you resume running…

Six weeks out from race day: The type and severity of your injury ultimately dictate your comeback. But if you can’t hop, you can’t run. “You should be able to hop in all planes and balance on each leg barefoot, in shoes, and on uneven surfaces,” says Bruce Wilk, P.T., author of the Running Injury Recovery Program and coach with the Miami Running Club. Make your first two runs short and easy—no more than three to six miles. If all feels well, resume your plan.

Four weeks out: That first week back, run two easy workouts of three to six miles and a long run the length of your last long run prior to your injury. “It’s better to have a successful 15-miler than risk a 21-miler where you could blow up,” says Wilk. Then begin your taper.

Two weeks out: Toeing the starting line so soon after an injury is dangerous. With two weeks left, you have time for just a few easy runs and one moderate long run of 10 to 13 miles (for marathoners; six to eight miles for half-marathoners). But be cautious. “The goal is to test how your body reacts,” says Wilk. If you don’t feel 100 percent, skip the race.

bodivance: for advanced body performance

 BODIVANCE : for advanced body performance

 logo-bodivance (1)    Bodivance is a breakthrough in sports technology. It is an advanced thermogenic accelerator cream that when applied, creates a breathable barrier on the skin that works in two ways.

Firstly, it helps to insulate heat that builds up as muscles are activated. This warms up the muscles rapidly and ensures that workouts are maximized each time. A natural effect of this is the increase in perspiration which hastens the release of toxins through the pores of ones body.

Secondly, it promotes vasodilation. By helping to widen the blood vessels and improve blood circulation, muscles get more oxygen and nutrients. This increase in circulation dissipates lactic acid build-up, speeding up recovery time and allowing athletes to work out harder and longer. This same principle applies in helping those with sports-related injuries recover faster. Improved circulation can also relieve arthritis and rheumatism while reducing the presence of varicose veins.

  Bodivance is an anti-cramps cream. It also helps relieve muscle pains and burn fats.

An additional benefit of BODIVANCE is the ability to target slow-to-respond areas that retain fatty deposits such as the buttocks and thighs for women and the stomachs for men. During exercise, blood is drawn from these areas to the other parts of the body, leaving these areas cool and without circulation. As such, no matter how much one exercises, love handles, cellulite and fatty deposits are extremely hard to get rid of.

BODIVANCE is an all-natural formulation that creates a thermogenic effect on the applied areas. This increases the circulation to exercising muscles, resulting in a more effective workout. It also accelerates warm up and recovery time, making exercise easier while reducing the risk of aches, cramps and muscle pulls.

Optimize your workout every time with BODIVANCE.

*Thermogenesis is the process by which heat energy is produced by the body through metabolism such as exercise and other physical activity. A thermogenic accelerator speeds up this process of heat energy production, allowing the body to utilize stored calories more rapidly. For optimum calorie burn in a workout, thermogenic action must be sustained without overheating the exercising muscles.
