PRO Compression marathon sock review and giveaway

I work out a lot - and with that comes sore muscles and sometimes even injuries.

I was recently introduced to Pro Compression Marathon socks and they are awesome! You can wear them before, after or during your run or workout. I do a lot of leg work (boot camp, stairs and running) and some nights my legs just ache. The compression of the Marathon Socks speed up muscle recovery by enhancing vascular flow in your legs.

The socks are tighter in targeted areas. True graduated compression promotes circulation by pushing fluid up from your feet and ankles to toward your knees. This design also helps reduce swelling and inflammation while providing critical support to muscles and tendons.

The first time I went for a run in these I couldn't believe how good my legs felt. I didn't feel like I needed to stop, and it made me feel stronger. After the first mile - my legs did feel a little tight - its hard to explain, but I powered through and came in in record time! I was really impressed! And I had no pain after running that night or the next day - so that's always a plus!

Here's me right before going for my run:

The cool thing about these socks is that they can help your endurance, therefore improving your performance. Not a runner? These socks are also good for activities like golf - where you are on your feet and might get fatigued. Basically, if you're doing any kind of activity - they help you do it at your best!


These socks are lightweight, machine washable and easy to wear. PRO Compression uses a proprietary blend of nylon and poly materials, optimized for performance, benefiting both amateur and professional athletes.

And a closeup of the socks:
 
These socks do take getting used to and they take a little time to put on (sort of like nylons, where you need to roll them on and adjust), but the time it takes is minimal compared to how good you'll feel wearing them and then after working out. I even like just wearing them while I sit on the couch after a day's workout!
