Eleiko Neoprene Knee Support
Made by: Eleiko
Price : $47.00 plus $12.00 shipping and handling
I have never had any knee issues (luckily) but as I focus more on Olympic Weightlifting in my personal fitness program I started thinking some extra support in that area would not be a bad idea.
If you are going to be squatting under load frequently, supports willhelp stabilize the knee joint and significantly reduce your risk of injury. For Olympic Weightlifting they are standard equipment.
Once my decision was made there was never any doubt which brand I wanted. I purchased my Eleiko NeopreneKnee Supports about three months ago and they arrived FedEx within 4 days of ordering. The supports are stylish and like everything else with Eleiko the quality is top of the line.
They are extremely well made. The Eleiko web site has a sizing chart for the supports which I used and they fit me perfectly. When necessary they can be hand washed and air dried.
I had researched the pros and cons of knee supports. One concern I had was that they may alter my mechanics which might have negative long term effects. I'm glad to report that this is not the case and in fact, quite the opposite. They make a huge difference in my training and all for the better.
I would give the Eleiko Neoprene Knee Support a rating of 5 stars out of 5. They are a bit pricier than most other brands, but as my Father was fond of saying, "You get what you pay for."
