Tightly is the only decent comment I'll bring to the conversation that many people will forget. Remember, you're trying to maximise the surface area over the knee joint so don't waste time covering areas that is not the knee joint. Most people will use the lines on the wrap as a guide and depending how long or stiff the wraps are or how many lines are on it etc will determine how you do this. Most people X the knee a few times then work from bottom to top. Remember that the knee joint is at the top of the knee and not the bottom. It took me a few goes to figure this one out. Sticky showed me how to wrap the first time but there are eleventy billion methods out there so ultimately you're just going to have to play around
I second the apt tutorial and what callan said. If you wrap tightly into the top of the calf you will
- lose feeling in your feet
- feel a weird pulling in your calf/ Achilles
- have a massive cork in your calf the next day
I've played around with wrapping a couple of times, and it's either too loose and I don't feel anything from them during the squat or too tight and I can't actually squat because the pain makes it impossibru.
Might try that interlocking style from the vid if I get a chance this week.
