Research results show how Fasciawear improves performance

Better aerobic and anaerobic energy production, higher VO2 values during exercise and higher lactate tolerance

Fasciawear improves your performance by improving the utilization of both aerobic and anaerobic energy production systems, leading to higher VO2 values throughout the exercise and enables significantly higher lactate tolerance at exhaustion time.

Research by University of Jyväskylä showcases how better posture, alignment and core muscle activation provided by the Fasciawear outfit result in better performance. As a added bonus the exercise felt lighter even though it was actually harder. Read the full research on how Fasciawear improves performance.

Fasciawear is loved by 9 out of 10 users

While we’re not claiming that our flagship product Fasciawear would make you world champion, it has helped many of its users to improve their performance by improving their technique, alignment and muscle balance.

Fasciawear will help you to find a better form and to keep a good posture, even when your body gets tired.

It is loved especially for its unique posture and form correcting features. In fact, 9 out of 10 users say they would hate it if they didn’t own it anymore.

University of Jyväskylä Research on Fasciawear

The University of Jyväskylä, one of the prestigious Universities in the field of sport medicine, conducted a research on what kind of effect Fasciawear might have on the athlete during high intensity exercise. The aim in the study was to find out whether or not Fasciawear has an effect on the oxygen uptake during incremental Nordic Walking test which was carried out until exhaustion. 

Those of you not familiar with Nordic Walking, it is a form of exercise that has taken the idea from cross-country skiing of using two walking poles to be used in similar manner like ski poles when skiing. The effect of using the poles during the walking exercise is to increase the core muscle activation and to utilize the muscles in upper body to provide a full body exercise effect.

In the test setup the test subjects each conducted two maximal incremental Nordic walking tests until exhaustion on a treadmill with and without wearing Fasciawear. Two tests were performed at least 3 days apart and randomly assigned to even out the possible effects of the earlier test.

The results revealed that the vo2 value was significantly higher at exhaustion time even though time to exhaustion time did not change showing that the test subjects capability for high intensity performance was increased when wearing the Fasciawear outfit. Interestingly, even though the exercise was physically more demanding, performing the exercise did not feel harder rather even lighter and the rated perceived exertion (RPE) was actually lower.

The researchers concluded that the higher oxygen uptake (VO2) and lactate at exhaustion seems to indicate that wearing Fasciawear improves the utilization of both the aerobic energy production and the anaerobic energy production systems during high-intensity exercise.

Key takeaway for you as an athlete

First, as the VO2 intake and thus energy consumption is higher, it means that your body’s capability to perform first under the aerobic threshold and then under the anaerobic threshold is improved as you can sustain higher level of exercise load without crossing the threshold boundary.

The second important effect is that you body’s capability to perform after the anaerobic threshold has been passed is also significantly improved meaning that you are able to carry on the exercise even though the oxygen uptake does not support the oxygen consumption anymore thus causing the rise of lactate level your blood. Being able to sustain more lactates gives you that extra level of performance when going for your personal record, practicing to finish a marathon or aiming for the podium in your next major race.
