Elbow Sleeve


#1

I'm looking to buy an elbow sleeve to try and help prevent the triceps tenadinints i get from benching. I was wondering what the difference was between these two, and which would be a better buy. Thanks in advance

Looks like one is adjustable(7722) and one is not (7720)…

Personally, I don’t see why anyone would need an adjustable sleeve.

I went ahead and ordered an xl of the non adjustable. I’m curious about how tight these are supposed to fit. Obviously I won’t have it for a few days but when I get it how snug should it be?

A properly fitted sleeve should be tight enough that you feel some compression but not so tight that it cuts off circulation. Ideally you want something that takes a little bit of effort to put on, just not something where you need a helper to get the sleeve up your arm.
