    seriously though, let us know how u find them. the regular apt sleeves are great for me as if i need something as tight as the double ply sleeves i'll just break out the wraps - more convenient and a better job as far as i'm concerned
    LOL that sounds fun. HAHA I am hoping with them perhaps being a little big for me that it will be a little easier to go on. They did not have my size in the regular APT stuff or I would have probably went for that option. I looked at the Tommy K's too and size wise they were out of the size I needed. I understand APT is good about working with you if there is an issue so at least that is on my side. I will definitely let you all know how they workout.

  2. apt runs of out most sizes really fast. what made you choose apt sleeves of TK's by chance? What exactly is the main difference b/w wraps and sleeves. wraps are mostly for maxing out correct

  3. Kleen, glad to see you picked those up. Definitely post on how they've helped, any discomforts, etc.

    I use all Inzer gear, and I have to say I DON'T like my knee wraps. They do the job but they aren't an easy wrap. My wrist wraps, squat gear, and bench shirt, I love though.

    Well the TK's were out of stock, I read as many good things about the APT's as I did about the TK's and a few places said TK were not as supportive. Wraps are going to give you more support if you really know how to wrap. I was looking for the most support but also being able to leave the sleeves on between sets to keep heat in the area as well. I plan to lift with these most of the time if I am getting up into anything heavy. If there is a major issue with them I can return them and go with the Konos if available but really the products came out about even quality wise from what I read and the APT's came out on top as far as cost and availability went so that is what I chose. I would have probably opted for a set that was not double ply to be safe but they didn't have them either. As long as they fit I shoud be ok.

  5. In case you compete, just be careful if you compete in a fed that allows knee sleeves. They usually allow single ply knee sleeves only. Those new APT sleeves are not allowed in many of them.

    Alan is great at APT as far as exchanges and returns, just email him if you have a problem. He'll set you up.

  6. Cool, good to know. If I compete I will have to get another set. At least I know this so if they don't fit I can see about getting a singly ply set. I wanted to get the new APT Heavy, it is a single but they were sold out in my size.

  7. Kleen, how is your progress, opinion on your knee/elbow sleeves?

  8. Well they were a bit to tight for the workout I was doing but I am saving them until I can go heavier. I will probably be squatting with them in a couple days though. Very Very Supportive for both of them almost feels like being wrapped.

    Pain in the a$$ to put on too I bet. The apparatus is cool but it literally 'hurts'. I remember my 1st bench shirt, getting it on finally and it pinching every hair and skinfold under my armpit. HOLY $hit it hurt.

    Anyway, I'm thinking of picking up the TK Knee Sleeves as an alternative to wrapping. I just hate wrapping all the time. I think you can use them as elbow sleeves as well which would be great for bench as well.

    Yeah the TK's are the ones that I kind of whish I had gotten for what I wanted. I wanted to put them on and be able to tleave them on but if I am able to do that later it will be after much breaking in. Yeah TK's you just get a smaller size to use as elbow sleeves. My sleeves will be perfect in about 6-7 lbs of fat loss I bet.

    Bought the TK'S! Did you buy yours from APT? I ordered mine, and they seem kinda slow

  12. I did but not sure of how available the tk's are. Email them I am sure they will work with you. I hear the guy is very responsive.

    I may have to. There was no 'out of stock' when I ordered but I've gotten no confirmation of anything ATM. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

  14. Kleen,

    I'm happy to say the TK's arrived today. I didn't get to use them during my workout but I tried them on and immediate heat. I could feel it. Did some BW squats and felt no pain and also these are perfect to wear during the whole workout. I can surely tell. Just FYI.

  15. Flex, just so you know I am a wee bit jealous as I can't wear mine yet they are just too sturdy for what I am doing right now. I am keeping them because they will be excellent when I am recovered and ready to really push HEAVY weight. What size TK's did you get and did you also get a set for your elbows?

  16. How do the TK's work for elbows? I am thinking about ordering the set. You gotta respect a man like Kono.

    I am hoping Flex can tell us. I have heard great thig about them and the elbows are the same as the knees you just get them smaller, so I assume as long as they fit right they will be excellent. I read about guys using Konos for years.

    I hope so...I know they are good for knees but the elbow supports I have used before were garbage...You need support but also a range of motion..if it does that well f yeah!

  19. True, range of motion is definitely a factor. Although he said he would be able to wear the leg ones through an entire workout so they must be a little looser than what I have and mine will go through a full range of motion as tight and restrictive as they are.

  20. EHYO FELLAZ!!

    I got the medium sized Konos. I only got the Knee Sleeves. I did try putting the knee sleeves on my elbows and they were just too big. No go there.

    Range of motion by just doing the bodyweight squats was just fine. I tried em on after my leg workout. I had my usual tendonitis ache and putting these on, you can definitely tell they were warming the area and my pain was dulled for sure. I'll have a great idea come Tueday when I hit the squats again. Getting them on and off was a snap too because you can fold half of it and inch it up that way rather than trying to pry your hairs off your legs. Getting them off was even easier, I pushed them down as to go inside-out and they came right off.

    My hunch is that they will help me for sure, but I think wrapping will be more supportive. If I can get 75% the support of wrapping and able to wear these for the duration of my leg workout, I've accompllished my goal.

    I'll give a full detailed report after my leg workout on Tues!

  21. sounds good i own these as well and they help me a great deal on leg and dead day. deff warm the knees

  22. APT seemed pretty cheap to me. Way too think, and bulky. Almost unfunctional.

    I have these... Order a size or two bigger than you think you would need. I have XXXL's.
    http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...d=114&p****3013

    I love them. Now that I have them broke in a tad (about 20 uses), I can leave them on the entire session. I also pull them down on to my shin when pulling from the floor to limit my DNA deposition...

  24. Okay, so my report.

    Putting them on, no issues. FIRM. Felt very secure and immediate warmth.

    During squats, I wanna say it felt like I was wrapped. I probably was 90% pain free.

    During my Centuries thereafter, my knees were SWEATING. I mean dripping sweat from the knee area. It didn't affect the support, I was still very secure.

    No issues with blood flow. Just good solid support and wore during my whole duration of workout.

    Was this exactly what I was looking for? Yes.
    Confidence and reps were up. Couldn't ask for anything more.

    Hope this helps.

    Awesome, I will have to check out what Casey mentioned too but for now I am done spending on this. I saw some of Casey's home gym and have some catching up to do. LOL

    About trying them on the arms according to the sizing chart they would supposedly fit... I hope so that was part of the selling point for me was that my sizes overlapped so no need for an extra pair. I hope they are at least tight enough to offer some support there. I don't expect anywhere near what I would get on legs. Was there any support at all on the elbows or was it just really loose?
