Knee Wraps

Elastic strips about 31/2"" wide used to wrap knees for better support when performing squats, dead lifts, etc.

bands of fabric wound tightly around the knee during powerlifting to slightly increase lifting ability; their use should be avoided during general training (apart from right before a competition) since they can obstruct blood flow, compress nerves, and grind the kneecap against the front of the knee joint, resulting in inflammation and possible damage to the cartilage of the knee joint.
