I am thinking about buying elbow and possibly knee sleeves. I compete in strongman, so I was hoping that the elbow sleeves could maybe give me a little more "pop" and increase my overhead push press.
I tried buying the Elitefts sleeves last year, but they didn't fit. And I don't have huge arms, so i am not sure why they didn't fit.
What sleeves would you guys recommend in order to get a little "pop" and help increase my overhead press? Thanks!
I'd probably get some of the heavier duty ones if you want some pounds on your lifts

FWIW, I wear my APT knee sleeves (the red and black ones) on my elbows. When I bought them I weighed about 180 and now they fit very well on my arms.
If you're worried about sizing I call or email APT directly and get his opinion

Thanks for the input guys. Do you think that sleeves can actually put on pounds for someone's overhead push press? Thanks!
if they're tight they may be able to. I use my knee/elbow sleeves for support but they offer me more stability and control than any kind of support.

I would recommend APT Convict Sleeves, double ply for log and single ply for axle.
Agree w/ the APT convicts... Some serious wraps for sure!
The Inzer sleeves are pretty darn good too w/ the velcro adjustments.
