Fox Force Knee Sleeves and Wrist Straps Review - GetFitOver40

A little while back I reviewed some Wrist Wraps I received from a company called Fox Force which happens to be owned and operated by my Trainers over at CrossFit Langley - CMA Martial Arts. You can checkout that review by clicking here.

So far my Fox Force Wrist Wraps have been holding up really well and I am now in possession of some more products from FoxForce.ca! My old Knee Sleeves where getting kind of sloppy so I needed a new pair, and my Wrist Straps where starting to get pretty shredded up, hey that's what happens when you use stuff all the time ;)

So LeeAnn from FoxForce.ca was kind enough to set me up with a new pair of their Fox Force Knee Sleeves and Wrist Wraps. I have been using them for a few weeks now and have no complaints. The Fox Force Knee Sleeves have just the right amount of thickness to give ample support without being so thick that they constrict my movement. I like how they keep my knees nice and warm while I workout and cushion my knees when I do lunges, no more bruised knee caps!

My Fox Force Wrist Straps have added neoprene in the wrist area that I find eliminates how standard Wrist Straps can bite into my wrists. Wrist Straps are a must for me as I have mild carpal tunnel which can really flair up if I am not careful to reduce how much stress I put on my wrists and tendons. The Fox Force Wrist Straps help out tremendously in aiding my grip when pulling heavy weight, allowing me to concentrate on the exercise rather than my grip.

At the time of this Article FoxForce.ca does not have their new Knee Sleeves and Wrist Straps listed but after some testing (by their local Patrons), they are planning to add them to their product lineup.

Fox Force Wrist Wraps Review - GetFitOver40

I was asked by my CrossFit coaches LeeAnn and Darren to tryout some Wrist Wraps they are promoting. Darren and LeeAnn recently started selling their own line of weight lifting products under the name Fox Force located at www.FoxForce.ca.

LeeAnn and Darren have told me they will be adding more products to their Fox Force line of workout gear including: Wrist Straps, Knee Sleeves and Weight Belts.

Previously I was using a basic Buckle Closure wrist wrap and they did help out when doing push type exercises but the Fox Force Wrist Wraps provide superior support and comfort. They come up higher on the wrist and use a thicker more comfortable material.

One exercise I find they benefit me greatly is when I do Back Squats. I use a low bar position on my back that puts a lot of the load on my arms and wrists, pushing down and back on my arms. Without wrist wraps after a set of squats my wrists are in a noticeable amount of pain but when using the Fox Force Wrist Wraps there is no pain at all after a set of squats.

Of course the Fox Force Wrist Wraps are ideal for any push based exercise movement and are even beneficial for activities like arm curls, power cleans and front squats.

Make sure to order a pair of Fox Force Wrist Wraps using this Amazon link if you're in the market for something like this and be sure to check back when LeeAnn and Darren have added some more products to their lineup. I hope to be doing some more reviews for them in the future...
