You are recommended to bring along a pair of knee length socks to help put on knee sleeves for the first time.
Q: What size should I get for my knee sleeves?
A: Take 2 measurements -
1. around the centre of your kneecap
(leg stretched out)
2. around the top of your calf
(where the bottom of the knee sleeve will sit).
Using Measurement #1, follow the size chart. For example, if your knee joint measures 34.5cm, M size will be a recommended fit. If you are looking for more compression, or for use in a competition, opt for the S size.
If your calf is a few cm larger (or smaller) than your knee, then you may wish to size up (or down) to ensure a good fit.
If you are unsure, book an appointment here to try on the sleeves before making a purchase online.
Q: How do I wear the knee sleeves?
A: The knee sleeves should be worn with equal portions of them above and below your knees. Putting on the sleeves for the first time can be difficult, but this becomes easier over time as you get used to it.
1. Pull the sleeve over your ankle. Fold the top down by about 3/4, then fold the remaining portion up. Tuck your fingers into the the bottom portion of the sleeves.
Slide the sleeve upwards towards your knee. Pull slightly along the top of your knee sleeve to smooth out any bunching up of the material. Alternate between pulling and pushing the sleeve up until it goes past your knee joint.
Unfold both portions of the knee sleeve. There should be an equal portion of the knee sleeves covering above and below your knee.
2. Wear a pair of knee length socks to help the sleeves slide on more easily along a smoother surface.
Q: What size should I get for the SBD belt?
A: Take a measurement of your waist (above the hips and around your belly button), with your abdominal muscles braced. Using this measurement, follow the size chart below.
Please do not use your normal trouser measurement as this will not be accurate for the belt measurement.
We recommend a belt where your measurement falls in the middle of the sizing guide. For example, if your waist measures 80cm, go for the M size which covers the 70 - 90cm range.
This allows adjustment of the belt in either direction depending on your preference of fit, or should your bodyweight change.
If you are unsure, book an appointment here to try on the belt before making a purchase online.
Q: What is the difference between the stiff and flexible wrist wraps?
A: Flexible wrist wraps are designed for easy self-wrapping during training, for accessory work, and competition use.
Stiff wrist wraps are slightly tougher to wrap around, but designed for maximal effort work and also an excellent choice for competition use.
