    Knee wraps??..

    well today i got a pair of Inzer knee wraps for the state meet in 14days, and wanted to know the right way to wrap knees. I had mine wrapped for one lift on squat at regionals. Well it helped alot and am pretty sure there is somewhat a surtian way to do it..or i think so is there?

    One additional tidbit: If you have some extra wrap at the end, you will want to tuck that under the wrap in such a way that some of it is sticking out above the knee - purists will say this is cheating and trying to put one over on the judges, but screw them...

    edit: One more additional tidbit - you really should practice in them before using them in a meet and get as comfortable as possible wearing them. I don't know how many times I've seen guys get misloaded and have to stand around while the bar gets reloaded - the experienced guys will be all right, but the novices will be almost crying and sometimes be asking people around them to unwrap and then rewrap them...

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
