Extra Equipment?

03 Aug Posted by in Misc. Info | Comments

It seems like there is becoming a trend to wearing supportive gear while doing cross fit. I’ve noticed the biggest increase in the use of knee sleeves in the last year, since a majority of the games athletes were sporting the typically blue or grey bands. Kinesiotape, wrist wraps, and powerlifting belts are becoming everyday wear for some crossfitters.  Is there any actual advantage to wearing or using these tools? Have we just adopted their use because we have seen the pro’s use them? The Crossfit journal published an article on the topic a little while ago that give a decent summary of the pro’s, con’s, and the benefit (actual or perceived) they give.
