I have to laugh when I read the occasional post in a running forum that suggests that the only reason leading runners wear arm sleeves is because they are paid to. One recent poster said that he believed the only reason runners wear arm sleeves is to look chic. Running arm sleeves. Really? Really!!!!!
Naturally, no two runners wear arm sleeves for the same reasons. Here are ten reasons why you see more and more runners opting to wear quality UV arm sleeves and calf sleeves.
What runner hasn't been nearly killed on account of a car, bus, or even a motorcycle not noticing them. Even when you try to exercise running awareness and safety, there are those on the road that are negligent in their driving. You need to watch out for them and you need to help them see you. Whether running in the early morning hours, the middle of the day, in the evening, or at night, wearing brightly colored or eye-catching arm sleeves and even calf sleeves significantly increases the odds that you will be seen by those on the road. Arguably, there is no better and safer combination of running arm and calf sleeves for you to wear than Uvoider UV Neon Yellow Arm Sleeves and Calf Sleeves.
The features of UV compression arm sleeves keep your arms warm when it is cold. UV compression arm sleeves is a lighter weight, more comfortable alternative than wearing a long sleeve shirt or adding a layer. Comfort and lighter weight means better and more enjoyable running.
The features of UV compression arm sleeves also keep your arms cool when it is scorching hot outside. As you run, your arms move. And with UV compression arm sleeves, the movement of your arms against the air creates an air conditioning like sensation and feel. For the runner, this is a refreshing feel that keeps you less aware of and bothered by the heat. After all, your arms are less hot.
We all know that direct exposure to the sun for even as little as 15 minutes can cause sunburn. Think about that direct exposure to the sun over a 30 minute run or an hour long run. UV compression arm sleeves provide easy and convenient protection against sunburn. Just slip them on and you are protected.
Sunblock is messy. First you slop it on and then you run, sweat, and get all wet. And when you are done running, your wet and sweaty arms are likely to touch up against something like a chair, sofa arm cushion, or car arm rest and make a mess of that as well.
Runners use compression calf and arm sleeves. Calf sleeves provide significant support to the muscles in the calf by improving blood flow. The heart pumps blood through arteries and veins to the extremities of our bodies where cells use the oxygen and nutrients. The blood along with lactic acid and waste products is returned to the heart where it is oxygenated by the lungs and the process repeats itself. Better circulation means better muscle performance and less swelling. For runners, especially on longer runs or intense workouts, where muscles experience continuous jarring and vibration, calf sleeves improve performance, support, and recovery. Compression arm sleeves also provide recovery benefits. After a long run, simply keep your compression arm sleeves on. This will increase blood flow which removes the lactic acid that was built up in your arm muscles. Compression calf sleeves and arm sleeves speed up the time it takes to recover from a long run or rigorous training session.
Compression arm sleeves keeps insects and all of those biting bugs off your skin. But even better than that, since your arms are not hot and sweaty, those chemical and heat sensing bugs will not find you in the first place.
If you consider the cost of sunblock and bug spray that you would have to otherwise use, compression arm sleeves pay for themselves in one season and save you money after that. Add in the cost of that extra layer that you do not have to have when wearing arm sleeves, the value and savings become even more.
Simply put, compression arm sleeves are stylish. You can go with the always suitable color to wear white or you can venture out and show some more personality with color, print, and design arm sleeves.
Whether you are out running with your friends, running at a charity event, or competing at a race, it can be easy to become separated from the group. What better way for your friends to spot you than to be the one wearing the really cool, eye-catching UV compression arm sleeves. You might not be able to spot your friends, but they will surely be able to spot you.
For runners of all kinds and of all distances, the benefits that quality UV compression arm sleeves have to offer are worthy of consideration. So, why would runners wear arm sleeves? Perhaps a better question is why would runners not wear arm sleeves?!
