    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!

    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.

    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!

    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&pid=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...

    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?

    I heard some good things about them because the sleeve has an adjustment on it to make it even tighter.

    If you wear them low, they keep you from scraping your shins. It was kind of a joke..

    Pics of the 'Knee Konos' on the elbows


    You can clearly see they are a litte big around the elbow. I put a stick of deodorant in between relatively easy so you can see the issue here. I couldnt do that around my knee for sure.

    Well now that I see i wont be able to use the Konos I am going to put my APT elbow sleeves on my knees for as long as I can stand it and do it a few times to break in the fabric more then put back on my elbow. I ain't complaining, I would rather have good forearms and a hard time fitting in stuff than the opposite. I keep seeing people say it takes weeks to break em in so they are comfortable enough to wear the whole workout so we may just have to suck it up my freind and break them in. Like I said my elbow ones I can get up on my knees if I work my ass off to do it. If I do some body weight squatting and leave em on for a while it should stretch them out enough I can feel my arm and it isn't turning purple.
