I bought these sleeves because I knew that I would be putting several plates on my Ankr for each exercise. I intend to use it for progressive overloading of weights. So I knew I would need the extra length of the sleeves to accommodate the thickness of several plates.
The sleeves are great. I am so glad I got them. I can now do leg exercises I could not previously do in my basement gym and I will be able to progressively increase the number of plates per exercise. It feels like a great investment.
I should also mention that customer service has been prompt to answer my questions.
