    where can i go and get some knee wraps for lifting? i realize there are stores online with better prices, but i want to try them out in person. there are a few gym equipment stores around here and then general sporting goods places like dicks and sports authority. where would be my best bet?

    I got the ones from bb.com and they've been great, I recommend them. I'm sure you'd like them and if not, they're only like ten bucks. I couldn't find any in stores oddly enough.

    Those aren't knee wraps and the ones you ordered are extremely thick almost to the point of being uncomfortable.

    You have knee problems?

    I have a pair of those and they aren't uncomfortable but they are on the same level as a light knee wrap in terms of support.

    I would have gotten a neoprene knee sleeve but those will keep your joint warm which is good.

    I usually take time to do a proper warmup for squats, but my knee still acts a little funny every now and then. Would there be any disadvantages to squatting with a light neoprene sleeve (should I stick to ocassional use, etc)?

    I put on neoprene sleeves before I do anything when squatting. Wearing them all the time will not have any negative side effects.

    Thanks for the advice. I figure better safe than sorry.
