During our observations and working with athletes we found it was very common for knee wraps to slip while squatting. Another related occurrence was the exposure of skin during flexion of the knee. Both represent the disbursement or loss of energy.
THP Wraps have a special construction that grabs onto your leg and stays put better than any other wrap on the market. And once it overlaps on itself, it grabs onto itself as well. So the result is less slippage and more energy return where you need it. How good is the adhesion?
THP wraps adhere so well that they commonly leave impressions where the actual weave of the wrap can still be seen on the legs!
The second variable we identified indicated that even when lifters wrapped extremely tight, many still felt as if they had not gotten all the stretch completely out of their wraps. There was still more give or untapped energy left in the wrap. The result is that the lifter does not achieve maximum energy storage.
While being among the heaviest wraps on the market and offering maximum coverage, THP's have a distinct elastic profile that provides a high modulus (power) within a very defined stretch limit. What that means is that the wraps do not simply keep stretching. With THP's you can pull the rolled wrap to a maximum tension and have the confidence of knowing that you've got the tightest, most supportive wrap possible.
THP's can be wrapped so tight that they actually sing to you!
That is, when wrapped tight enough, you can actually hear the wraps creak! This is a result of the wraps grabbing and maintaining their position on your knees and refusing to slip.
A more efficient storage of energy resulting from less slippage and the ability to wrap tighter add up to greater returned energy or....bigger squats!
