Greg - I'm curious about knee sleeves. What are the benefits/disadvantages of using them? Are there some that you'd suggest? Thanks for the site. It's an awesome resource.

Fränky- 4 sets of singles. When their is a prescribed weight, it is reps x sets. If no prescribed weight, it is sets x reps. The info link has tons of really good info.

NIck - Benefits are that they keep the knees warm, give some proprioceptive feedback, and a little spring in the bottom of the squat and dip of the jerk. Drawbacks are that, like any supportive gear, they'll reduce your strength development by assisting movements - although with knee sleeves, we're talking about such a small reduction it's really not even worth concerning yourself with. However, I do recommend that people treat sleeves like belts somewhat and limit their use to only their heaviest sets.
