Deadlift Socks?


Where do you get those big tall ass socks that go up to the knee like you see people deadlifting in? Are they soccer socks or something?

step 1:
go to athletics store

step 2: ask for soccer socks

I use women’s dress knee socks from Walmart. I don’t know if there is a men’s equivalent. Otherwise I use my daughters soccer socks.

I like these, they’re a bit thicker then baseball socks.

I think I got my best pairs from Target. Of course, they’re a bit too girly for you…

Reminds me of my good ol’ HS Football days, especially the 250+lbs linemen rockin’ their “scrimmage shirts”…

I’m actually not ashamed to admit I still have one, though I don’t have the balls to wear it in public.

I think my dad has the old tube socks with the 2 stripes at the top.

I wear dress socks, sure they look funny but at least children aren’t scared of my shins anymore

I got mine from www.titansupport.com, great for protecting the shins.

I’ve never scraped my shins. I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong. Is it because I’m shorter than you guys?
