On squat days, you may have noticed some of our athletes sporting neoprene knee sleeves, and wondered why. In addition to looking awesome, knee sleeves serve an important purpose in athletic performance. They support the knee by giving added stability and help keep the knee joint get and stay warm. The compression not only makes squatting more comfortable, but can also help you lift heavier weights. As coach Ben says it is like "squatting with magic." If you’re performing a lot of heavy full-depth squats the knee sleeves can help you feel better during and after workouts.
