Urban Lifters Knee Wraps serve 3 vital purposes :
1. Performance Enhancement
➤ Urban Lifters Knee Wraps have been proven to enhance performance by allowing lifters to add weight to their lifts.
➤ This is due to the unique ‘Rebound’ effect that is experienced.
➤ Studies show test subjects wearing wraps performed the eccentric part of the movement 45% faster than regular lifters, and performed the concentric phase 20% faster.
➤ This instantly increased numbers on the bar. How much you add is then dependent on many factors including wrap length and how tightly you chose to wrap them.
2. Lifter Safety
➤ Wrapping the knee joint will give extra support to the patella tendon, and also surrounding structures including the quadriceps tendons which are located on either side of the knee cap.
➤ This will provide stability and support to the anterior side of the tendons.
➤ Another study also confirmed that knee wraps are responsible for improving force production.
➤ This is achieved as the knee wraps force your form to be tweaked. It makes it less likely that the weight will be transferred to your toes, that your hips will shoot up or that you will end up performing a ‘good morning’ to the detriment of your back.
3. Pain Management
➤ The additional compression not only ensures all major structures are kept it place, it also stimulates effective blood flow and will boost recovery.
➤ This helps drastically in the reduction of muscle soreness and aching joint.
➤ Keeping the knees warm also ensures you knees are always ready for heavy loading.
➤ The high grade, rigid material has been developed to ensure a cast like feeling, whilst still benefiting from the unique rebound capabilities of knee wraps.
