I have a pair of Mark Bell’s Strong knee sleeves and I also have a pair of Rehbrand knee sleeves. I’m not sure if I should do my regular squat training with the Strong knee sleeves or the Rehbrands. I’m currently running Candito’s 6 week strength program. On one hand I’m concerned that the Strong knee sleeves would give me too much support and I will not be able to build as much strength if I didn’t use them in my regular day to day squat training. On the other hand, I think I might be over training if I just use the Rehbrands since my squat max that I’m using for the program is based on what I did with the Strong knee sleeves. The Strong knee sleeves are the tight competition size for me. They are tight but not supper tight or at all uncomfortable. It does not take much effort to put them on. I’m not sure how much poundage or rebound that I get out of them. More then anything I think they help me just feel more in the groove and more stable. Especially in the hole. When I was doing Sheiko before I would normally use the Rehbrands in my everyday training since the intensity is pretty low. However, the intensity is very high in Candito’s program so I’m more worried about over training if I don’t use the Strong knee sleeves.
What do you guys think? Would it be best if I normally use the Strong knee sleeves or the Rehbrands?
