Encinitas, Calif.-based sports compression-wear developer SKINS has partnered with USA Rugby, the sport’s national governing body in America, as an official supplier of compression product. SKINS will provide USA Rugby men’s and women’s national teams with compression garments for training, travel and recovery.
SKINS compression garments have been engineered to apply the greatest amount of compression at the extremities. This graduation enhances circulation, helping to more efficiently move blood to the heart. The enhanced blood flow also helps remove lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. Improved oxygenation reduces the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness and accelerates muscle repair.
Headquartered in Boulder, Colo., USA Rugby develops the game on all levels, overseeing four national teams, multiple collegiate and high-school All American sides, and an emerging Olympic development pathway for elite athletes.
