Anyone who lifts heavy weights knows that making sure your knees are stable while lifting is essential to maintaining joint health. RockTape KneeCaps Knee Protection Sleeves are specifically designed to provide warmth, compression and lateral stability to your knees when performing functional movements such as deadlifts, squats and pistols. This helps improve your confidence when lifting and also prevents injuries from occurring.
Who Can Make Gains With RockTape KneeCaps?
Maintaining the health of your joints and knees is crucial to both your overall well-being, as well as your progress and ability in the gym. When your knees feel good, you'll be more willing to go to the gym whenever your get the chance, and push yourself to the limit. So if you're really serious about getting yourself into better shape, and meeting those fitness goals you set, it's obvious that you should invest in some reliable knee support, like the RockTape KneeCaps, to keep yourself going for longer, and get more out of every workout.
The VMO, or Vastus Medialis Oblique, is part of one of the four quadricep muscles, and is the primary muscle used to stabilise your patella (kneecap) during the extension and retraction that take place in exercises involving the leg. Unlike other knee supports, RockTape KneeCaps Knee Protection Sleeves are 'extra tall', so they compress the VMO at its insertion point above the patella, to ensure proper stability and tracking. RockTape KneeCaps also provide much needed compression and warmth to promote blood flow, another crucial element to the health of your knees while lifting.
5mm vs. 7mm Thickness
KneeCaps Knee Protection Sleeves are available in two different thicknesses: 5mm and 7mm. The crucial factor to consider when choosing your thickness is the level of support you require. If you need a knee support with more compression, warmth and stiffness, go for the 7mm; if you're looking for a more flexible, lightweight knee support, the 5mm version will probably suit you better.
