Editor’s Note 

Compression Wear is an essential part of the endurance junkies dress code. Normally, I use compression arm and calf sleeves for any long distance cycling or running which helps me;-

Prevent or reduce muscle fatigue 

Enhance recovery process 

Keep dry from excessive sweating 

UV protection 

Stabilise body temperature 

So, when I was offered the opportunity to test some high-quality compression products by ZAMST from Japan. Here below, I have shared the results of my testings. 

The fantastic news for you is that I have made a special arrangement with the ZAMST Approved Distributor, EGO NUTRITION, to offer a solid DISCOUNT on their full range of products. Everything you need to know about how to take-up this amazing offer, is described in detail below.

If you are like me, you have to make a lot of sacrifices in order to pursue your passion for sports. Often, it can be frustrating when we cannot afford to shop for the best sporting goods. Therefore, it is important for me, to not just share with you COOL product information, but if I can help make quality products more affordable for my cycling and running friends, that is PRICELESS!


Firstly, it’s an acronym for Zing Advance Medical Sports Training. ZAMST is the No.1 COMPRESSION WEAR for Sportsmen in Japan.


This year, ZAMST was exhibited at UTMF EXPO held before the race. Visitors had signing, and photo-shooting session with Sebastien Chaigneau, ZAMST sponsored top trail-runner, Many runners made a long line to have his autograph.


Being a big fan of the benefits of Compression Wear, I have been simultaneously testing 3 of ZAMST listed below items, during my Cycling and Running Events and Training Sessions in order to find-out how well they perform compared to the other popular brands available in the market :-

ZAMST COMPRESSION ARM SLEEVES. The Arm Sleeves deliver uniform compression from the wrist through the upper arm. 

The Arm Sleeve improves circulation, enhances blood and oxygen flow to the muscles and assists in eliminating bi-products (lactic acid). This reduces muscle vibration and muscle fatigue, while improving muscle endurance and recovery. 90 + UV Protection.

ZAMST COMPRESSION CALF SLEEVES. The LC-1 Open Toe G-Fit technology delivers gradient compression from the foot through the calf muscle. 

The LC-1 improves circulation to encourage blood and oxygen flow to the muscles. Aids with flushing out bi-products (lactic acid), reducing muscle vibration and fatigue, which improves muscle endurance and recovery.

ZAMST COMPRESSION SOCKS. The HA-1 Short with built in a-Fit technology provides anatomically correct support and fit for the left and right foot. 

The HA-1’s functional support and unique knitting technology stabilizes the heel in a neutral position and lifts up the arch of the foot to prevent it from leaning inward. This will minimize the stress from repetitive impact on the foot to reduce plantar fasciitis.


The ZAMST Compression Arm and Calf sleeves performed as well as other leading Compression Wear brands, in terms of reducing muscle fatigue and soreness, expediting recovery, giving UV protection, and reducing overheating.

This was the first time, I had worn compression socks because when I tried on a pair earlier from another brand, it felt too tight and uncomfortable. So, I abandoned that idea until I tried-on the ZAMST Compression Socks which fitted my imperfect feet like a glove. Performance-wise, their socks kept my feet dry dry and gave excellent arch support. I cannot wait to use them for Ultra Marathons because my feet get very sore when running more than 10 hours. You can also use ZAMST Compression Socks for long walks without tiring your feet! I will update more on these socks when I have completed longer running distances.


Apart from meeting my expectations in terms of performance, what really sets these 3 ZAMST Compression Items apart from the other brands is firstly how well they fit without any feeling of tightness. Secondly, the material is so soft and comfortable, and it feels as smooth as silk against my sensitive skin. Before trying-out ZAMST, I have always mistakenly believed that all compression material are either too tight or too coarse on the skin. Therefore, I am extremely happy to discover ZAMST which gives me BOTH Total Comfort and Enhanced Compression. Now, that’s an illuminating discovery….

Watch me put-on my arm sleeves.
Watch me put-on my calf sleeves.
