    I really enjoy the Podcast, thank you for doing it. I am getting some of the Rehband 7mm sleeves and I was wondering about the fit. According to Rehband’s sizing chart, I need the XXL which surprised me. Should the knee sleeves fit tight or just snug?

      They should be super tight. Get the size they recommend, perhaps one size smaller.
