WHY SHOULD I WEAR AN ANKLE BRACE WHEN WEIGHTLIFTING?
For weight trainers and physically active people, the ankle joints endure a wide range of stresses and strains.
Some common forms of ankle injuries caused from weightlifting and heavy squats include ligament tears and sprains, stress fractures, Achilles tendinitis and heel pain.
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace and ankle support when weightlifting can minimise your chances of injury with it’s enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression and help in preventing or avoiding an ankle injury.
Bauerfeind ankle braces also help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.
A good ankle brace for weightlifting is the MalleoTrain which offers joint stabilisation and a moisture-wicking compressive knit, allowing for improved heat and sweat dissipation during exercise.
Protect your ankle joints so you can lift, squat and enjoy multiple reps without injury
