Protect your shins

Rope climbs, dead lifts, cleans and snatches can be hard on your shins (so hard that some athletes develop staph infections). Built with UV protective 5MM of hi-tech neoprene and breathable 10-24 Lycra, Rock Guards protect and serve. They’re light-weight and slightly compressive, yet offer the ultimate in protection.

Rock Guards are great for:

  • Rope climbs
  • Dead-lifts
  • Cleans and snatches
  • Box Jumps

New Features:

  • Impact resistive 5MM Neoprene fronts fused to a compressive lycra sleeve.
  • Back zip makes them easy to get on.
  • Foot stirrup and silicone grips keep them in place

Sizing Chart

  • If your calves are < 38CM in circumference at the widest point and your height is 155CM (5') or less and therefore the length of your leg (tibial tuberosity to the ankle bone is generally 30cm or less) use the small size.
  • If your calves are < 38CM in circumference at the widest point use the medium size.
  • If your calves are > 38CM in circumference at the widest point use the large / extra large size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for deadlifts I used to kill my shins when I did deadlifts, but after buying these I don’t tear myself up anymore. They have a nice tight fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for deadlifting, with one exception These are terrible with my high top chucks. They hurt. The zipper presses in hard. Just be warned if you lift in anyone other than low top shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be careful of what size you order When I first tried them on they were tight. I was at the box so I went through a workout. Afterward I planned to send them back but once I paid for shipping it wasn’t worth the aggravation. I like the guards but go big on the size of your calf size is near the upper end of the suggested max. I’m hoping they expand over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prevention for box-jump injuries I bought these after biting it on a 24" box-jump for the 4th time during a metcon and I really wish I had bought these earlier. The padding is thick enough to significantly reduce the damage you would do otherwise. In reading some of the other reviews, I have to say that: Yes, you'll probably have a nasty bruise, but it would not be anything like hitting the edge with just your skin. It's not realistic to think they would stop any damage from a missed jump. Otherwise, ask yourself, would you pay $30 to avoid having bloody shins after a miss? I had also never done rope-climbs before getting these and a couple of weeks ago I was able to do them in a metcon without any damage to my legs. The negatives: Like others, I find the zippers on them pretty much useless and the stirrup straps on one of them is coming unstitched, but it's not impacting the overall product. The grip material on the top of them does a great job of holding them in place for the most part.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stirrups Failed After First Use The shine guards work well, and do the job. However, after the first use one of the stirrups failed and came apart at the stitching. Also, the side zipper is useless, meaning it does not stay zipped. My opinion, do away with the zippers and sewn stirrups and just have an integrated stirrups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for rope climbs and box jumps This isn't my second pair, beyond protecting from rope rashes, these protect you shins from box jump scrapes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea, execution could be better The concept and design of the Rock Guards are excellent...they protect the shins during deadlifts VERY well and are pretty easy to put on and take off. Unfortunately, the sewing leaves quite a bit to be desired, particularly the elastic bands that go underneath the feet. I have had to carefully re-sew the elastic bands back on to the shin guards. If this part of the design was a bit more robustly engineered, you'd get a 5 out of 5 stars from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and the cheapest price I could find An essential for rope climbs and some lifting I am so glad I purchased these. Stay in place when put on and does the job. I was also very surprised that Rogue EU had them at the best price I could find online, beating out amazon, ebay and other gym suppliers.
