I have the SBD knee sleeves, and although I agree they give 0 lbs, they do give me more confidence, which ends up being more poundage. mechanically speaking, they give 0, maybe 5 on an odd day.
I have a compression cuff currently, bought a long time ago, the "blue" one that is now listed as leg compression. I've lost about 40 lbs, so they are not as tight as they used to be.
My elbow is just fucked though. Back in high school, it got slammed against a helmet and I have a piece of, well, something, floating around in there I can physical move around. When you feel my right elbow, all smooth. When you feel my left elbow, it's all bumpy (inside) and feels like it's physically missing stuff, then that large lump you can move around and gross people out with at parties.
So, the pain is centralized right at the point, just below, towards the tricep. And, it is also on the bottom side of the forearm about an inch in from the joint.
The blue compression cuff barely covers both areas, but not really. They do help, but I'm looking for something a little better / bigger.
I absolutely love how the knee sleeves feel, and not a huge fan of how the compression cuffs feel. About 1/2 way through any session, the pump makes my arm hurt from lack of blood flow.
With that history lesion about my fucked up elbow, which would you recommend?
