Acel Performance & Recovery Compression Socks...Giveaway! #fightfatigue #circulationboost

As someone who just started taking workouts more seriously, I'm still learning about proper workout gear. I've been hearing about compression socks for quite a while now, but I envisioned those white socks my grandparents need to wear. Since dedicating more time to the gym and talking to friends and coworkers about their exercise regimen, I was surprised to find so many of them wear performance and recovery compression socks. I new they were great for circulation, but I didn't know that they helped you recover after an intense workout. I had planned to give them a try myself and in a fortuitous turn of events, the people of Acel contacted me to ask if I'd be interested in trying them. When I looked up their product on the Acel website and saw that these socks were supposed to help prevent shin splints, that alone made me eager to try them. (Shin splints are one of my number one complaints, which I hear is also related to lack of proper workout gear!)

After a few rounds of wearing them, here's what I noticed:

  • For starters, they come in stylish colors, so I was already a fan of that. (I received green, but they come in black, white, red, blue, orange, yellow and pink, too.)
  • They form to my feet and legs really well.
  • It may sound crazy, but I swear I could feel the increase in circulation. They've got a snugness to them that doesn't feel too tight, but I definitely notice the compression.
  • I really liked the moisture wicking anti-bacterial material these are made of. My feet didn't feel sweaty or irritated as they sometimes do in regular socks and sneakers. I don't have a problem with blisters, but the product does say that it reduces that occurrence of them. I could see that being a big win for runners.
  • The support the socks give seems to make it easier on my legs through my workout.
  • I'm not going to pretend I knew whether 20-30 mmHg firm graduated compression was great, but after talking to my runner friends, it is! 
  • cushioned sole-love it
All in all, I was very impressed with Acel's Performance and Recovery Compression Socks and I actually do understand why so many people use them now. They'll make great stocking stuffers this year and I've dropped some not-so-subtle hints to my husband that a couple extra pairs my help my workout motivation!
