Knee Support For Gym


Gym exercises such as squats, lunges, leg extensions, uphill treadmill running and other deep knee flexion movements can cause additional pressure and stress to the knee cap, which can lead to pain or knee injury.

Wearing a Bauerfeind knee compression sleeve such as a Sports Knee Support can enhance the stability of the knee joint and improve the blood circulation.

The medical-grade compression in Bauerfeind Knee braces and supports aids in eliminating lactic acid after a workout which causes cramps and reduces the recovery rate time.

The 3D knit weave is moisture-wicking and breathable, unlike most neoprene sleeves. 

If you are recovering from an advanced knee injury or hitting the gym after a previous knee injury, we recommend wearing a Bauerfeind brace such as Genutrain, Genutrain P3 or Genutrain A3.

Knee braces offer enhanced support, aid in the mobility of the joint and improve proprioception. The viscoelastic massaging pads in Bauerfeind braces massage the joints during movement aiding in faster recovery. 

Weightlifting at the gym has one of the highest rates of knee injuries. Thus, investing in good knee support can protect your knees from injuries which can keep you on the bench for months.
