Won't make you sprint faster, but could make you faster at the end of a 5k due to less fatigue, etc.

Could make you faster in the long run since they help with recovery and thus allow you to have less rest time between quality workouts.

Its not a magic potion, but there is some pretty decent research behind compression apparel providing a benefit for athletics.

Compression has become a pretty ambiguous term now. Just because something is tight doesnt mean its true compression apparel. The legit stuff has a true measureable level of compression.

I definitely feel better when using it. Whether it's in my hear or not I'm not sure but the tightness I feel in my legs feels awesome.

Solly, will you still love me if I don't get the Newburgh crossfit colors?

I mean, I'd love to rock a pair in those colors if I had a matching Newburgh Crossfit t-shirt, but I have a feeling that that won't happen any time soon

I received my knee sleeves from Greg today, they are top quality and tough looking sleeves. Much better than what I now have. No need to spend twice the money for rehbands IMO. Every serious squatter should have a pair of these. Your knees will thank you.
