    Best Knee and Elbow Sleeves?


    Hey everyone, I don't typically post here in this forum, but if anyone knows what the best sleeves are it will be you guys. I recently started smashing my legs for growth and got a lot stronger but the tendon above me knee apparently wasn't quite ready for this so I have some tendonitis same issue in elbow. I am doing all of the good stuff, Cissus, R.I.C.E, ibuprofen of course and what not but I also want to get a really good sleeve I can wear for extra support. Can you all recommend the most supportive sleeves for both knee and elbow? I am not likely to stop training so I want as much support as possible while lowering weights until stability comes back. Then hopefully at some point I can train in Power lifting style for a bit and maybe even compete. I just need to get his stuff done healing first. THen i will do some of the tendon strenthening workouts I have been reading up on and see if I can't turn them into airline cables.

    I did use search but did not find what I was looking for or am not knowledgeable enough in these accessories to know that I have.

    I have looked at the Rehband Knee and Elbow sleeves and am interested in them. As well as the TK or Tommy Kono Knee sleeves and the APT Convict double ply knee wraps.

    I would probably also wear this during rolling and sparring if possible for the extra support there as well.

    The TK knee sleeves are really good. The Inzer knee and elbow sleeves are great too. I've used both the TK and Inzer and liked them about the same.

    Another vote for TKs. I see these posts all the time about sleeves and everyone says rehbands, but I think they suck compared to the TKs. I got a set of Rehband knee sleeves and the stitching started tearing the first time I put them on, I was not impressed. Not nearly as much support and warmth as the TKs IMO.

    My TKs I've had for years and have a few tears in the rubber and they still work great. They are a bastard to get on though, but you'll figure out a technique that works. It's a grip builder just getting the knee sleeves up.

    Keeping up on recovery workouts really helps my joints as well. Lots of fish oil too. If you have that shooting pain from your elbow tendonitis where your whole arm hurts (like I get sometimes) you could try some horse liniment to take care of some inflammation. It works pretty well for me if I use it consistently (3-4 times a day). Here's the stuff I use: http://www.stablesolutionsltd.com/ . That stuff is really good, and you can get a small 4oz bottle to try pretty cheap.

    Hey everybody I wanted to thank you all for the input so far. I will look at these just a bit more with your statements in mind before making my order. By the way Ortho told me yesterday I strained / sprained the vastus lateralis muscle and the quadriceps lateralis tendon. I apparently have a good size knot where the muscle tissue connects to the tendon. He said 6 weeks of very light weights. I hope the sleeve allows a little more support so I can go just heavy enough to be challenging at high reps and not lose the new mass I have put on over the past few months. Oh well if not muscle memory will kick in on the flip side.

    I will look into the liniment for the horses, how bad does that smell??? The doc said I definitely need to be using something like that too. Co-Workers are gonna love me!

    The stuff I posted doesn't smell bad at all, after a couple minutes you can't smell anything.

    Nice, I like that and the testimonials are impressive, has a muscle relaxant in it too. How hot does this stuff get, would I need to be careful with application to keep from it getting too hot? I want something effective but not so hot it is almost unbearable.

    Okay I see it says no menthol or eucalyptis. So smell probably wont be too bad like you said.

    I found the TK sleeves to be great at warming up the joints, and help with some popping that happened at heavier loads, but other than that they werent THAT supportive.

    As far as the Rehbands, I've read that the first generation ones were the really good ones, the ones out now supposedly suck.

    If you go with those, go with the blue. I don't find that the blue feels much different than the pink and it's a little cheaper. It does have that menthol smell though. It's fine for putting on right before you workout, but you might not want to walk around all day with it on.

    Perfect insight there. I think I may try the other one that says it does not have the strong odor just to see. It would be worth a little extra money not to smell like an old man in a sauna all day. I work in an office building and would be attacked after too long of smelling up the joint. LOL

    Cool another good review, that seals the deal. I like the fact it has a muscle relaxant in it as well. That will help the healing process too.

    I would go with the APT Knee and Elbow Sleeves or with Elite FTS knee and elbow sleeves. Additionally Elite sells strong ass linemints(sorry about spelling). There is a blue, Pink, and EQ block. (ascending order of strength). I have also started getting a few aches and pains myself. I also like a glucosamine bases supplement as well it seems to lube up the joints for me. I like applying hot stuff to the knees and elbows before bed a few times per week to increase blood flow to the area, and help heal the white tissue faster.

    i had a pair of xxl convict double ply knee sleeves and had to return them as i couldn't even get them on (and i don't have the most massive legs in the world either). Ended up getting the regular APT knees sleeves and they're great - highly recommended

    Thanks Guys, I got the APT Double Ply Convicts set and am waiting for delivery. I am in the top end of the 70-90 KG weight range and I got the next size up that were for the 90-110kg weight class. I have smaller knees than most people and read that these run a little small so I went a size up from what it said after reading about them. I read where people were saying these were about as tight as you can go and still keep on in between sets. I do have big calves though so hopefully I don't have problems getting them on, we shall see.

    good luck with them. Give it an hour, loads of talc, pumped forearms and wrecked hands and major leg - hair loss and i'm sure you'll be fine!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
