What brand, model and length are you using?
Titan, KLA 2000, 2m. Wife got them for me for Christmas by mistake and I kept them always thinking I'd work them in one day.

KLA 2000 Gold Knee Wraps 2.0M

One thing is they are stiff as a board, so should I beat them up some to see if they aren't so stiff? Or is stiff good?

Also tying them off is a complete bast**d! It's hard to get that the end under the last loop, and when I do I pull it a lttle bit tight and that last loop feels like a tourniquet!

I'm just looping right now, but maybe another pattern is better? I'm trying the different ones I saw on your video, but until you get under the bar (when you're already tired btw) it's doesn't tell me much other than how tight they feel.

Any advice on this is appreciated. I'm not planning on using them in a meet for quite a while, but my thinking is to use them as an overload after my main work like I do with the RAM. Not sure if that is a good plan though.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
