elbow sleeves for pain

Everyonce in a while my elbow hurts when lifting . I read in a Monstermuscle magazine that your elbow needs to be warmed up before you touch a wieght and that lots of the powerlifters use neoprene elbow sleeves to help the elbow joint. Ive been lifting 13 years and getting old sucks.
Any one use these sleeves?

Don’t use 'em, yet. But I do intend on getting a pair of Rehbands for both knees and elbows for when I compete (strongwoman).
The guys we train with on Friday evenings will wear theirs. But we didn’t want to have to “rely”. Same as with a belt.

However, due to the general style of training that is strongman, we now have belts, knee/wrist wraps and will soon have the sleeves.
Always good to be prepared.

I have a pair of rehband sleeves for both elbows and knees. They’re great for keeping the joints warm. They’re nice and thick.
