Another thing is to wear neoprene sleeves (such as Tommy Konos)… No need for hardcore double-ply pl sleeves, just something to keep the joints warm (no need for much support) etc… Makes a big difference.
You recommended those sleeves in another thread some time ago, and I ordered a couple of pairs (one pair for knees, another pair for elbows). They are great! I don’t have any joint issues, but they are wonderful for warming up.[/quote]
Goddamnit, I’m making Tommy Kono rich. He ought to pay me for that
Glad I could help, Rational Gaze.
C_C I send you a PM but I guess it didn’t work.
I got the sleeves but on the them it says “Knee bands”. On the website it said they were elbow sleeves, are they the same thing? I have to return them because they’re too big for my elbows but was wondering if they are the same item…
PS: they are TK brand.[/quote]
TK knee and elbow sleeves are the same basically, only that the elbow sleeves don’t have “knee bands” written on them (doesn’t matter).
You could keep yours and use them for quad work. Really helps if you use hack machine squats or so as your main quad exercise, for example.
I’ve been squatting without them a few times now (kept forgetting to pack them back into my gym bag after cleaning them) and my knees are letting me know… [/quote]
So I guess I should get “small” for my elbows and just keep these for legs. Then when I’m huge I use the ones for legs as elbow sleeves=Win :).
