2. Maximise Endurance

Not only are you gonna look cool AF slipping on a pair of men’s compression leggings, these bad boys are gonna take you further. Compression tights for men are tailor-made to aid blood circulation, meaning you’ll be pushing yourself beyond your normal limits. More oxygen in the blood means more energy during those crazy workout sessions, with quicker recovery meaning you’ll be ripped in no time.

3. Better muscle support

Whether you’re racking up the miles on a long distance run or crushing it in the gym, your  hamstrings, quads and glutes are gonna need all the help they can get. Men’s compression leggings are made to deliver sports-grade support to your muscles, helping them get ripped and shredded without getting… well... ripped and shredded.

4. Reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) 

Ever felt stiff first thing in the morning? I’m not talking about pitching a duvet tent, I’m talking about the dreaded DOMS. Delayed onset muscle soreness will make you wake up feeling like an old man. The solution? No, not a zimmer frame to help you get around, but a slick pair of compression leggings to support your muscles, improve oxygen flow and help them recover faster and more effectively.

5. Proprioception: The Sixth Sense

Proprioception may sound like a fancy fitness buzzword, but it’s a massive concept when it comes to workout wear. It’s sometimes called ‘the sixth sense’ and basically comes down to improving your awareness of your body as you’re moving, and the increased agility and dexterity that can be gained from this. Imagine the feeling of wearing a cheap pair of Walmart leggings. Now imagine wearing a pair of 4-way stretch, super-slick men’s workout leggings that slip on like a second skin. It’s like the difference between feeling like an amateur and a high performance pro.

6. Maximum Flex

If you’re straining to touch your toes, you need flexibility – both in your body and in your workout wear. You can blame it on your age, or you can invest in the right lightweight materials that will maximise flexibility and ensure smooth movement.

7. Sweat-wicking Tech Keeps You Cool 


Few things in life are worse than a sweaty crotch on a hot day. Keep your mind on your workout with high performance men’s compression leggings. Kapow’s custom fabric is made with sweat wicking technology for amazing breathability, to keep you cool, calm and collected when the going gets tough.    

8. No More Chafing

Here’s the rub. When your leggings are cheap, your manhood and your thighs are gonna suffer. No one likes the chafe, so invest in some performance meggings for amazing abrasion protection, and make sure you’re pushing through the right kind of pain.

9. All-Weather Comfort 

Now you can wear your favorite workout gear all year round. Quality workout leggings are made with high-tech compression fabric, meaning they’re breathable and insulated, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. So, whether you’re crushing it in the gym in summer or road running in winter, you’re covered.

10. Crotch Friendly 

When you’re working out, the last thing you want is your junk bouncing around like a kangaroo on a trampoline. Compression leggings are tailor-made to keep your junk firmly in the trunk, while not feeling too tight or restrictive.

11. No More irritations

We’ve all experienced those irritations that drive you crazy during a workout. No, not the guy in the mankini doing lunges in front of the mirror. I’m talking ill-fitting workout wear. Kapow’s performance range is so comfortable and free from snags, you’ll feel like you’re wearing a second skin. No irritations – not even minor ones – will keep your mind 100% focused.

12. Own The Night With Hyper-Reflective

Being seen during the day is great. Being seen at night is essential. As anyone who’s not living underneath a rock will know, there’s a bit of tension around nowadays – especially on the roads. Drivers can be a little reckless and a little sloppy. So, if you’re a night runner, visibility is key. 

Kapow’s Sonic Boom leggings will keep you lit all night long, with hyper-reflective speedlines specially designed to help you stand out during those nocturnal jaunts.

13. Get Shorty

If you’re one of those dudes who doesn’t feel completely comfortable wearing men’s workout leggings in the gym, ease yourself in and throw some shorts over the top. Wear compression leggings under a pair of shorts and you can’t go wrong, on both comfort and style fronts.

14. Bounce-Proof Phone Pockets

Ain’t nobody got time for your smart phone to be banging against your leg when you’re put for a run or hitting the gym. Kapow’s range of men’s performance tights come with dual pockets designed with accessories in mind – a bounce-proof pocket that holds your phone snug against your leg, and a secure zip pocket for keys and cash.
