Knee Pain

I have been suffering some knee pain after squatting. My 1rm is double my body weight right now and I’d like to keep increasing it. Was wondering if wraps or some sort of sleeve will help or should I just suffer through it. Thanks in advance.

Knee sleeves are good stuff. They have helped my knees alot. Buy some thick and warm ones (at least 5 mm).

Any kind better than another?

I prefer the Old rehbands. They are discontinued, but I think you might still be able to buy them from www.jackalsgym.com

Other than that I also like the Tommy Kono ones, but they don’t give quite as much support as the rehbands do.

Thanks. I’ll check them out.
