Save Your Knees

When Tommy Kono developed the knee bands in the mid- 1960s, he called them "T.K. Knee Bands" and many of the great lifters of that era began using them while they trained.

Today, Tommy Kono's original design is available once again! These knee bands will help keep the joint stable during your workout. T.K. Bands also keep your knee joints warmed up; you'll find your knees sweating and they will still feel well-lubricated after you take these bands off.

Sold in pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brand new knees I've been using the TK bands for about a month now and bought the ones according to the size chart. First time trying them on was difficult to say the least (hint; turn them inside out then put them on). They were so tight that I was a little worried, but after my workout I forgot all about them. My knees felt warm, oiled, and brand new!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer for those w/ bad knees I have never experienced knee pain (after cycling 1,000 miles a year) until I started burpees and box jumps at crossfit. Stumbled across these knee pads and it's like I have a new pair of knees. Zero to almost zero pain while working out in these (sometimes on longer runs, as they start to slide down I'll notice a little pain, and if I don't get a good stretch in to get them warm before squatting or something like that). They are snug, so I'm glad I got the next size up it suggests. Be prepared, these are not flimsy little braces. If anyone else scuba dives, they will remind you of cold water diving gear...and they retain heat. Sweat will drip from them, but once you work out you don't even notice it. Started reviewing products on here just to talk about this one. Must have. No doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Knee Support! I have fat quads, so I found the popular (and twice as expensive) Rehband knee sleeves to be mild and annoying, because they kept slipping down many times throughout a workout. The TK bands stay in place longer, fit tighter, and give a lot more support to your knees. A hint on putting these on (as stated above) - turn them inside out and upside down so the non-rubber surface is on the outside and your foot slips into the smaller opening first. Then when they get a little more than halfway up your calf, pull from the bottom so the rubber flips over onto your knee, and slide it into place. The reason they are tougher to put on than the Rehbands is because they fasten to your knee better. It's worth the extra minute of work getting them on. I use the TK bands for squatting and metcons with running. It truly saves and/or restores your knees so you can do tough workouts without worry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! Used these for the first time tonight and I felt a lot stronger and my knees felt great!!! Especially with it being winter right now it helps keep my knees warm and safe from injury!!!! I highly suggest these knee sleeves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not great I thought these were fantastic until I swithched to Rehbands. They do provide great support and warmth for the knees, but compared to the Rehbands they're pretty crude. They're not lined on the inside, so it's like having your leg hair removed by duct tape when you put them on. Also, if you happen to snag the inside and cause any small tears etc, you will have to replace it because it will pull apart under any stress at all. Get the Rehbands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love them but they ripped I had my knee sleeves for about a month before one of them started to rip. Now the tear is so big it doesn't serve its purpose anymore. I love them otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They tear Wouldn't say I used them a lot...maybe a few dozen times or so over a 9 month period and they ripped. Ripped on the medial side of the band. I understand this isn't uncommon.
