I've been training for a while, but I'm a novice when it comes to (Olympic) Weightlifting.
I don't necessarily have any issues with my knees (my right one bugged me for a few months about a year and a half ago, but gives me no problems presently). However, I notice that the majority of folks who do the lifts with any degree of proficiency tend to use knee wraps.
Before I drop 80 dollars plus shipping on some Rehbands, I wanted to hear some people's firsthand experiences regarding wraps.
-Do you think they add anything to your squat?
-Do they alter your mechanics; make it harder to get under the bar?
-Do you think they enhance your proprioception? Do wraps enhance your "groove" or your "feel?"
-Do they think they have any real protective benefit?
