    I wear compression tights under my leather suit when motorcycling and I also wear them when kickboxing. I notice a lot less fatigue and soreness the next day compared to not wearing them and doing the same thing.

    I did on Sunday and glad I did because I got punched there during light contact sparring practice.

    I wear compression shorts on back squat and dead lift days...also when running...
    I THINK they help with holding off fatigue...and recovery...

    Old people have worm compression socks for years!!

    I wear compression shorts while riding horses. They keep my junk up out of the way of the pommel over jumps and I like how they feel under my riding breeches.

    I have some dress sox I wear at work that are tight. I don't think they help. In fact there are times when I need to pull them down and the legs feel better.

    I wear bicycle shorts while bicycling. I can not imagine not having them. It helps keep the twig and berries happy.

    Hey - I'm not saying pantyhose can't be a useful prep. But I'm not wearing them.

    I do when I am playing hockey.

    Compression shorts when running and cycling.

    Thinking about those goofy looking compression socks now too.

    I wear compression shirts, not when I work out, but when I go out in public. They help hide my gut...

    Is "compression" just a fancy manly-sounding name for tight lycra?

    It sounds like one of those "re-position the product" names.

    "Dammit Bob, our stock is all XXS biking shorts. Nobody will want these."
    "Well, call them 'compression' shorts and sell them to the big guys!"

    It's not lycra, it's stretch cotton, or spandex, or just micro-wicking polyfiber... at least that's what it says on the garments.

    "Lycra and spandex is one and the same." Whatever combination of materials, fibers, or plastics, same question applies. Are we just talking about tight fitting clothing that stretches somewhat?

    I've not heard of compression shorts before and I'm trying to figure out what it is. New product? Or old product with new name?

    Like "athlete's foot," which was a new name for an old malady, but the new name helped sell a new product?
