Have any of you folks used these?
When you put these on, or any knee or elbow bands on, is it a big battle to get them on? I have a little arthritis in my hands now and then, and I have not been able to get these things on, while going according to their size plan. That which is supposed to go on my knees fits my arms better, although I have to say that it is not very tight then, but it does keep my elbows warm. When you guys put on any bands, is it always so tight? I can see how it would improve your lifts, as it would make your joints stiff. Kind of like when I used to wear Filson tin pants(tough waterproof canvas) and I was stronger, or able to lift more at work.
I tried for about 15 minutes one evening to get on any of these bands, and the only satisfaction that I got was to use the knee bands on the arms, but then it was more for warmth than anything. I suppose I could put the arm bands on my ankles and feet, that might make them warmer.The waist band, I got that too, Lord help me, perhaps it will do some good in terms of keeping my back warm.
I am not large, my arms are like 16 1/2". I would need a spotter to help me get those bands on me. I jammed on one of the knee bands and it took a while to get the thing off, and at that I got no where near my knee, my calves are 17", about. I suppose thats how it is, eh?
