Check out the reviews and videos for the Sling Shot Strong knee sleeves review and you decide if they are good enough for your next workout.
One of the first things that we noticed right out of the box is that these sleeves can be tight so you are really going to have to take a few minutes to get the right measurements from your leg.
This sleeve is made of 7mm neoprene and designed to add another 20 to 50 lbs to your lift.
We had been using the TK knee bands and also a pair of Rehbands so it was good to take a new look at this pair and see how they compared to the others.
The word is that these were tested at the World Famous Super Training Gym for over one year by Mark “Smelly” Bell and “Silent” Mike
Make sure you look at the specs so you can pick the right size for your legs. You need to measure at the knee and match it up with their sizes. I ended up getting a large and I was good to go.
If I would have got the medium size and it would have not worked at all.
The Slingshot STrong Knee Sleeves by Mark Bell are very stiff and made with a thick, high quality neoprene that is much better than most of the other knee sleeves on the market.
They are snug fitting yet comfortable and provide a small bit of rebound which is comparable to a light knee wrap.
Best of luck and skills with your lifting!
SlingShot Strong knee sleeves review by DudeMan:
You gotta know up front that if you try to put these on you are going to see that they are really tight.
myself personally i got a medium size and was glad i did not go smaller. It was a good warmup just trying to put these on as I about broke a sweat.
the top reason i got the Slingshot Strong Knee Sleeves by Mark Bell as I want to give my knees all the support they can get doing heavy lifts.
we had a tough session at the gym today and I wore these for squats and am glad i did. After you leave these on for a while they loosen up a little and are more comfortable.
The biggest thing I feel like I have way more stability with these on for my deep squats.
I ended up doing a 5×5 set with 245 lbs and was all good to go. I felt like I could have done more and will definitely next time under the bar.
I have also used these for walking lunges with a plate over my head when I was out on the driveway of the gym to give a little extra protection as needed.
Answer: The STRONG sleeves are not USAPL/IPF Approved but the regular slingshot sleeves are.
Question: What about these vs Rehband?
Answer: We are working on a comparison review of those two now.
