  • Knee Sleeves

    Am I the only one who's Knee sleeve smell like Ammonia if not washed within a few hours? Also, any recommendations on how to wash them? I usually take them in the shower with me but am up to anything easier.

    Mine smell pretty ripe but that’s only because I’ve only washed them twice in the past 6 months lol. I personally hand wash them in the sink with just some
    bar soap and let them air dry.

      I'm not sure if vinegar and/or baking soda would ruin sleeves, but they are good deodorizers

        I have some knee sleeves from Workt that don't get smelly. It is made out of some special stuff that sounds like pure marketing hype but it actually works, (or else my knee sweat just doesn't stink).

          Antibacterial soap might help.
          Idk what you guys are talking about though honestly, Ive had my Rhebands for a couple years and just turn them inside out to air dry as soon as I’m done training. Y’all must have some stinky knees lol jk.

            Drying immediately after use is crucial to keeping the smell down. I hang up all my gear to dry as soon as I'm changed so that it doesn't smell. Once the smell has caught, hand washing in warm water is probably best.

              wash cold inside out for short 15' cycle.
              let it dry on the drying rack

                Are double ply knee sleeves assisted lifting?

                I wanted some sleeves for the knee warmth/ support/ placebo but dont want something that would actively assist in my squat.

                  Just buy SBD knee sleeves if you have the money or are planning on competing in the USAPL at some point. If you're balking at spending that kind of money, Stoic knee sleeves are another brand of fine, budget friendly 7mm knee sleeves, and they should be IPF/USAPL approved by next year.

                  Either way, knee sleeves don't really add much to your squat, they just provide a slight warming and compressive effect, and make it slightly less uncomfortable. If the circumference of your calves isn't really small relative to the circumference of your leg around the knee joint, the potential compressive action is limited by the fact that they have to slide past your calf.
