In need of some compression socks to help you recover from all the time all the trainer or from the snow shoveling? Check out the Vaso Sock from Beaker Concepts.
The VasoSocks are actually a product that Beaker Concepts had made for some other companies for different purposes and saw that the time was right for multisport athletes to begin to accept compression as recovery and performance based product line. With extended input from ProTour Cyclists, Ironman Winners, elite runners, NHL, MLB and NBA players the Tall Vaso was refined and the Low Vaso invented. One of the primary clients for the Vaso Socks are the Livestrong Trek presented by RadioShack U23 Team.
The Vaso Sock is a compression sock that helps to improve endurance, reduce post exercise soreness and of course assist in athletic performance. The compression benefits include enhanced vascular flow in the lower extremities to help in expediting muscle recovery by reducing swelling in the muscles and tissues. This speeds up the recovery process. When wore during intense or long workouts, the compression properties of the sock help to delay lactic acid and muscular breakdown period longer.
I have been using compression socks from almost two years and have been using the Vaso Sock from Beaker Concepts for the past six months. The benefits really are noticeable particularly for recovery from the longer workouts building towards Ironman. They definitely enable you to recovery quicker and to hit the next workout at your peak. And they come in Argyle, which look better with the work pants :-)
