Why wear elbow sleeves?
Increased support: Elbow sleeves help to keep your elbow properly aligned during pressing movements, reducing the risk of injuries from poor form.
Improved circulation: The compression of elbow sleeves helps to stimulate blood flow, aiding in quicker recovery and reducing DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
Reduced risk of injury: By providing protective cushioning and support to the tendons and muscles, elbow sleeves can reduce the chance of strains and sprains.
Enhanced performance: By keeping the elbow joint warm and compressed, elbow sleeves enable an improved range of motion, meaning you can lift more weight.
Accelerated recovery: For those recovering from an injury or strain, elbow sleeves can provide therapeutic warmth and compression, speeding up the healing process.

What’s the advantage of using a double-ply elbow sleeve compared to single or triple-ply?
Double-ply elbow sleeves provide an enhanced level of support compared to single-ply, making them suitable for heavier lifting sessions or when more joint stability is desired. However, they offer more mobility (albeit less support) than triple-ply sleeves.
