What causes calf cramping? How can Zensah help?

Have you ever been running or exercising when your calf cramps up, forcing you to stop?  Even though calf cramping is extremely common among athletes, the exact cause of this phenomenon still hasn’t been determined.  These cramps can last for just a few seconds, or as long as ten minutes!  Thankfully, Zensah’s Compression Leg Sleeves, Ultra Compression Leg Sleeves, and Ankle / Calf Sleeves can help!

From White to Bright!


Thursday, January 15th, 2015

To get 2015 started the right way, we want to use the New Year to go from White to Bright! In a collaboration with 10 awesome bloggers, the #whitetobright project shows how we can take any white product and transform it into something unique and colorful. Each blogger is getting a set of white compression leg sleeves. The leg sleeves are made in the USA and help runners prevent shin splints, reduce calf soreness, and recover faster after tough workouts. Each blogger will design the white compression leg sleeves with their own materials and style. All of the participants in the #whitetobright project are listed below. We will post all of the projects as they are released. Follow along with the hashtag #whitetobright on social media and stay tuned to see more!
