Hey everyone! Welcome back to another article! As you can tell from the title, I will be answering the question, what is the purpose of knee sleeves?
Without further ado… let’s find out!
What Are Knee Sleeves?
First off, we need to understand what knee sleeves even are. They are a product that slides up your shin and covers your knee. They typically cover from the top of your shin to the bottom of your thigh.
The materials vary, but the characteristics are stretchy and compressive. This allows them to slide onto the knee, where the product can then do its job!
So… what’s the job?
What The Heck Do They Do?
To best answer this question, I will be comparing knee sleeves to knee wraps!
While both knee sleeves and knee wraps have similar functions, they are each tailored towards different purposes. Knee sleeves focus on keeping the knee warm, while knee wraps focus on providing support for the knee to move more weight.
It’s great to keep the knee joint warm to aid in keeping it mobile and ready to move. However, the compression aspect of knee sleeves also provides support and can help you to move a little extra weight, just not to the extent of knee wraps.
Additionally, many people, myself included, enjoy the way knee sleeves feel while performing different exercises. This can help with confidence, thus bettering one’s performance overall!
Well, everyone, that’s the short and sweet rundown on the function of knee sleeves. The information you need without the over-complication!
