According to the muscle status of runners during exercise, this paper uses the surface electromyography (sEMG) technique to monitor the change of time-domain index RMS under different garment pressure and exercise intensity, and studies the effect of the compression of the seamless knitted tight shorts on fatigue by introducing the heart rate synthesis index. Research shows that during exercise, wearing proper tight-fitting sportswear can reduce muscle vibration caused by impact and muscle contraction, and reduce muscle discharge, thus playing a role in delaying fatigue. But uncomfortably, tight dressing in sportswear not only increases the burden and fatigue in a long time of exercise on the muscles, but also easily harms the body.
