WHY USE ELBOW SLEEVES?
There are four main benefits to using an elbow sleeve:
1. Keeps your elbow warm: The sleeve's neoprene helps warm the elbow joint. Warmth increases blood flow to the area, which can help with muscle flexibility and potentially reduce injury risk.
2. Improved proprioception: Wearing a sleeve can heighten the sense of the body's positioning, leading to improved technique.
3. Reduced pain and swelling: A sleeve can help reduce pain and swelling during and after a workout if you have a minor injury or elbow inflammation.
4. Stabilisation: The compression and support from the sleeve can provide stability in the elbow joint, helping you lift heavy weights with more confidence.
By wearing elbow sleeves during your lifts (particularly pressing movements/dips), you can improve your performance and reduce your chance of injury.
MADE FROM HIGH-QUALITY MATERIALS
The Strength Shop Inferno Elbow Sleeves are made with reinforced stitching and crafted with 7mm of neoprene.
We use premium neoprene for optimal compression: it braces your elbows securely and won’t slide off the joint like cheaper sleeves. If you prefer less compression, consider sizing up.
How do elbow sleeves enhance my workouts?
They improve blood circulation around the elbow, helping you prepare your elbow joint for heavy lifting. This can enhance performance and reduce injury risks.
How do I care for and clean the elbow sleeves?
We recommend hand washing only to keep your elbow sleeves in good condition for years to come. Use a mild detergent, and air-dry. Avoid using a dryer or exposing them to direct sunlight.
