wraps in training shouldn’t be used to much. I’m talking about WRAPS, like Inzer or metal wraps that help you lift more weight. Overuse or even just moderate use will help weaken your knee joint.
sleeves are ok for warmups imo as they help with blood flow, but honestly, I can’t see much use in one for working sets except to maybe use as mental booster etc…
There are a lot of very accomplished powerlifters that would disagree with the entirety of what you just posted.
To make a blanket statement that overuse or even moderate use will help weaken your knee joint is pretty fucking ignorant.
You are clearly speaking of something which you have no practical knowledge.[/quote]
most power lifters don’t OVERUSE wraps, a majority train raw and only near competition start breaking in the wraps and suits. Ofcourse power lifters-squating 600± are very different then normal lifters and wraps really are not necessary at all for training.
The whole sleeves thing yes they can be good, but again I myself find it is slightly restrictive and prefer raw.
