One of the most important components of lifting is maintaining knee stability. The heavier the lift, the more strain the knees and quadriceps undergo. If your knees hurt when you lift or you have trouble stabilizing them, RockTape's Assassins could become your new best workout buddy.
Assassins are designed to provide compression, warmth and lateral stability when performing functional movements such as dead lifts, pistols and squats. Unlike other supports, they are extra tall and designed to compress the vastus medialis oblique (VMO) at its insertion point above the patella (kneecap) to help ensure proper stability and tracking. Assassins also provide compression and warmth to promote blood flow to the knees and surround musculature.
Assassins are sold in pairs and come in 2 thicknesses (5mm and 7mm), 5 sizes (XS - XL) and 3 styles.
- SBR Neoprene front protection and 4-way stretch lycra side panels
- Extra tall construction - designed specifically for VMO compression
- Double Mauser Stitching - the latest in stitching technology, which greatly enhances durability
