The Best New Workout Tights

Hi friends!

I just wanted to show you these new tights I got the other day as a late Christmas present from my parents. If you saw when I received them the other day on Instagram, then you might have been able to tell how excited I was.

These are compression tights from 2xu. Supposedly pronounced two times you but I always read it as two x u. By supposedly, I mean that’s what their official website says.

The benefits of wearing compression tights are

  • Reduced fatigue through less muscle oscillation (that’s a fancy word for jiggle)
  • Reduced muscles soreness
  • Reduced long-term overuse injuries
  • Greater power output
  • Heightened proprioception (awareness of limb placement for agility)

At least that what they say. To be honest every cell in my brain is refusing to do a thorough search for evidence-based research supporting these claims. It’s the day after my exam and I feel tired just from thinking about doing more work. So instead you’re getting my subjective opinion (but at least I’m being honest about my subjectivity).

I love these tights; I feel great, I feel strong when I wear them. The boost I experience could all be down to placebo, but it’s still a boost.

I’m wearing the midrise version with the wide waistband that makes them comfortable to wear. I ended up buying them from Sportamore Outlet because they were the cheapest I could find – but Workoutshop.dk has good prices as well and a bigger selection (that is, if you’re from Denmark like me).

International readers can find the midrise tights here.

Since you made it all the way to the end, you may as well follow on Instagram as it’s the place to be! But their algorithm is a mystery so maybe sign up for my newsletter to never miss a post! ♡
