Today’s blog post is about Training with bandages. I will introduce you to different types of bandages and their different areas of application.
Bandages can support you in different ways during training. Be it through stronger support at Returning to training after an injury. Or even if you are fit and with flexible bandages want to push your limits.
Training With Bandages
Returning to training after an injury
I think most of us know it (unfortunately) from personal experience. You have one injury moved and still want to go as soon as possible to get back into training. Of course, depending on the severity of the injury, one must not rush it and must give the body time to recover.
It was the same when I tore my ankle ligaments. When I was able to start again, the ankle was of course still very unstable. In such a case, the stable is the perfect Phantom 3+ ankle brace. It gives ankle support and you can support start training.
The bandage supports the ankle, provides stability, and is there yet comfortable and you can wear your shoes normally. In this way, you can get back to training in the best possible way or, after a minor injury such as a sprain, continue training in a stabilized manner.
The bandage comes in different sizes, so it fits your foot perfectly. By the way, you can wear them on both your right and left foot.

Safety at maximum performance
Even if you’re fit and healthy, training with bandages can have some benefits. Do you want eg maximum performance to bring you one flexible sports bandage Provide security and at the same time promote your performance.
Just at extremely intense workouts with a high load, I like to use it for my knees and knee sleeves. Be it for lots of wallball shots, burpees, or, for example, walking lunges. With a knee bandage, the knee gets additional support.
Benefits of training with bandages
- Improved blood flow to muscle tissue (reducing the risk of injury)
- Protection against (micro) impacts, e.g. during walking lunges
- Better performance through more stability
Of course, the knee bandages must be worn so that you can also benefit from these advantages and sit properly. Make sure the bandages Sit a few inches above and below your knee. they may not too loose, but not too tight either be.
In contrast, to wrap bandages, you still have the full ROM (Range of Motion) and can practice each movement as usual. By the way, the bandages are too washable in the washing machine.
Proper Use Of Bandages
As you have seen, there are different reasons for training with bandages. Nevertheless, it is of course important not to do every workout with bandages in the long term. Your ligaments, tendons, and joints need to be trained just like your muscles.
However, if you always relieve them of the work in the long term or reduce their burden, they cannot become stronger. So if you are free of complaints and not pushing your maximum limits, I would definitely recommend you Recommend training with as few “aids” as possible.
In addition to bandages, this also includes weight lifting belts or pulling aids.
