    How To Put On Compression Socks - Step 2Step 2:

    Holding onto the heel of the sock, turn it inside out, stopping at the heel. This creates a "pocket" to stick your foot into.

     

     

     

     

    How To Put On Compression Socks - Step 3Step 3:

    Slide your foot all the way into the sock, just over the back of the heel. Adjust the toe and heel areas to make sure they are in the right place. Make sure the sock isn't twisted around!

     

     

     

     

    How To Put On Compression Socks - Step 4Step 4:

    Grab the top of the sock and pull it over your heel and up your leg. The sock should rest about two finger-widths below the crease of your knee.

  • TheraSport Gym Guide

    Not everything is black and white, but this fitness gear is! Here is your go-to guide for all your gym attire needs to help you meet your goals.

    Workout Basics

    It is important to stretch before working out, so make sure to bring your Yoga mat! This helps to reduce the risk of injury. Foam rollers are a great way to stretch out muscles and work out kinks. Yoga is a great way to warm up and get in the zone. Most gyms offer fitness classes, including cycling, Yoga, Pilates, Kickboxing and more. Check with your local gym to get involved. If you have the time, stretch afterwards, especially if you have gained a lot of muscle or aren't as flexible.

    The only thing that's more important than stretching is staying hydrated. When you sweat you lose electrolytes. This can lead to dehydration or low sodium in the blood. Try to drink about 8-12 fluid ounces of water 10-15 minutes before you exercise and about 3-8 fluid ounces during your workout. This varies by person. Dehydration can take a toll on your performance, but it is also important to remember that you can overhydrate too, so make sure to drink what you feel comfortable with. There are lots of water bottles that filter tap water or are marked so you know how much you need to drink. Find the right one for you and don't forget to bring it with you!

    Black and White Fitness

     

    Compression Socks

    First and foremost, compression socks are your must-have item for working out. The new TheraSport Athletic Recovery Sock provides 15-20mmHg graduated compression to improve circulation, which results in a shorter recovery time. Compression socks also help to prevent leg fatigue and blood clots. The TheraSport Athletic Performance Performance Sock provides 20-30mmHg and is perfect to wear while exercising. These soft, moisture-wicking socks help to keep your legs energized even during the toughest workouts.

    Comfortable Shoes

    You need comfortable shoes that support your feet without rubbing or pinching. You're not going to be able to give it your all if you're focused on shoes that hurt your feet. Thanks to Runner's World, you can take a quiz to find the best pair of running shoes for you. Runner's World gives you a whole list of shoes based on your preferences and even shows you where you can get them.

    Motivation

    Make a playlist of your favorite "dance like no one's looking" songs and get a pair of headphones that won't get in your way while exercising. Ideally, wireless or noise-canceling headphones are great for the gym, but it is all up to personal preference.

    If you're the competitive type, try out a Soleus Go Fitness Band to track your fitness goals, distance, average pace/speed, calories burned, step counter, sleep pattern and more. It even lets you set up alerts to keep you organized and updated.

    Support

    Whether you're looking for something to shape or slim, Solidea has you covered. The Silver Wave Anti-Cellulite Capri reduces cellulite and slims your thighs, hips, butt and tummy. Micro Massage 3D fabric stimulates circulation to reduce cellulite and water retention. These capris are made with a breathable, antimicrobial fabric, which is perfect to wear while exercising.

    Post-Workout

    Everyone has their own post-workout routines, but the things that most gym-lovers swear by are using foam rollers to stretch muscles, break up knots and improve flexibility. Make sure to slow down and give your body a rest before heading home to cool down. Taking the time to cool down (and wearing compression socks!) helps to prevent blood from pooling in the veins. Lastly, try to eat or drink something with lots of protein after you exercise to help speed up recovery.

  • New Colors for 2XU Compression Performance Socks!

    blgo-blog-2xu-girl

    2XU Compression Performance Socks and Sleeves are now available in new colors for men and women, including red, purple, green, blue, black, pink, white and navy. 2XU stands for “Two Times You” to represent the multiplication of human performance. 2XU Performance Socks and Sleeves provide 25-30mmHg graduated compression, which is ideal for athletes who want to enhance performance, decrease post-workout soreness, speed up recovery and prevent injury like shin splints. It is also great for traveling and for those who sit or stand for long periods of time to reduce swelling, prevent DVT (deep vein thrombosis) or other conditions.

    2xu-running-1-cI recently tried out a pair of the Ice Green 2XU Women’s Compression Performance Socks. I went for a run before heading to the gym. My legs felt energized and fresh my whole workout. A lot of the time, my legs will ache after running on pavement or a tough work out at the gym, but after wearing these socks the next day my legs didn’t feel sore at all. These socks provide 25-30mmHg graduated compression, which means that the most pressure is felt at the bottom of your leg and decreases going up towards the knee. The graduated compression helps with muscle containment and improving blood flow, which is why you recover faster and don’t feel as sore the next day. If you are training or regularly work out, these socks are for you. Plus, they’re safe to sleep in so you don’t always wake up limping!

    2XU Performance socks are extremely lightweight, made with a zoned breathability panel as well as seamless stitching for airflow. This material is truly breathable and is perfect for hot weather. Many people shy away from wearing compression socks or sleeves during the summer because they can feel hot or constricting, but thanks to 2XU, you can wear them year-round. These high-tech socks also provide UPF50+ sun protection and are antibacterial. They are made with medical circular 360 degree knit construction from 72% Nylon and 28% Elastane.

    2xu-sock-image-3Another great feature is that the socks are marked with either “L” or “R” so you always know which foot to put it on. They also have the size written on the bottom of the foot, which is nice so you don’t have to figure out what size you are later on. If you have sensitive feet or have a hard time getting compression socks on and off, you should consider the 2XU compression performance sleeves. Calf sleeves are a great alternative to wearing compression socks because you can wear them with any sock or shoe you want. I would highly recommend 2XU Compression Performance Socks or Sleeves to anyone who wants to get or stay in shape. To learn more about 2XU and how these products are made, click here.

  • Stylebook: Girl on the Go - Look 6

    Looking and feeling your best when you travel is essential. During the cold months, if your destination isn't all that warm and sunny, then throw on your favorite boots and leather jacket. Going on vacation or taking a trip for work is fun and exciting, so make sure to dress the part. After all, you never know who you might run into!

    The first and most important travel tip to follow is to plan ahead! Make sure you check the weather ahead of time to bring the right clothes and shoes. Always pack extras of your essential items, like socks! Just remember not to go overboard or you might find yourself paying extra to get your overly-packed suitcase on the plane. Do some research about where you are going to plan out where you want to go, places to eat and so on. Take out some extra money just in case something goes missing or you see something that you just can't live without. Remember to be friendly and don't shy away from asking questions. If you take a cab, ask the driver what their favorite hangouts are or what restaurant they would suggest for dinner. Try to be open to new experiences because you may never get the opportunity again. Last but not least, don't forget a camera!! Even if you're not super thrilled about your destination, you never know when you'll catch a breathtaking sunset.

    Polyvore-Travel set

  • Stylebook: Gym Glam - Look 5

    Ladies, now is the time to get back in the gym and kick butt! With summer just around the corner, it's never too early to start toning. First things first - clean up your diet. You can run for miles and miles, but if you sit in front of the T.V. mindlessly eating afterward, you're not going to see much of a difference. Eating foods like avocados, nuts, berries and low-carb string cheese are great snacks that take the edge off without packing on the pounds. When you are consuming the right foods, your body has more energy and you are more likely to make it to the gym.

    Polyvore-Gym Glam

    When you're starting out, think about what your goals are. Weight loss, toning, strengthening your muscles or training for competitions, etc. It is extremely important to be realistic about what you can achieve in the given time period, so you don't get discouraged. Designate how many times a week you want to go to the gym and try and stick to it. Don't beat yourself up if you can't make it one day, just make up for it another day or do some exercises from home. No matter what pace you take getting back in shape, you are always further ahead than the people on the couch.

    Need some motivation to get started? Get yourself some cute gym clothes! What better way to look and feel your best than with a great gym wardrobe? The most essential item to have is a pair of compression socks or sleeves. Grab a pair of Sigvaris Compression Calf Sleeves to enhance performance and to prevent injuries like shin splints and leg cramps. Most important? Wearing compression sleeves or socks after a workout speeds up your recovery time so you can get back out there in no time. Featuring 20-30mmHg of graduated compression from the ankle to the knee, these sleeves increase circulation and improve blood flow. They are perfect for working out, training for marathons or triathlons, and also for running long distances. Compression sleeves and socks are vital to keeping your legs healthy and energized, especially when you are first starting out.

    It is important to work in cardio and weight lifting each week. There should be a balance between the two based on how often and how long you work out and for. If you only go a couple of times a week, you should consider doing a total body workout each time. This is where you hit all of your muscle groups in one session, and if you have time, add in about 20 minutes of cardio after. If you plan on going 3-5 times a week or more, you should try dedicating each day to targeting specific muscle groups. For example, spend one day focusing just on your legs, and another only doing back and tricep exercises to work the muscles more thoroughly. If you want to tone your body, the best way to do so is through resistance training. Grab a pair of resistance bands and try some of these exercises.

    Check out these customized workouts by Women's Health Magazine that are based on your specific body type. Make sure you listen to your body. Try keeping a food and exercise log to see your progress. This helps to catch patterns that may be preventing you from reaching your goals faster. No matter what kind of exercise you do, the most important part is that you're out there trying. Don't give up!! Remember, the real workout begins when you're so tired that you want to quit.
