What is it?

Phantom Weighted Sleeves are compression sleeves with flexible metal weights that allow for Functional Strength Training during practice, enabling the athlete to develop the EXACT muscles groups used during game performance.

How does it work?

Just put it on and go play! Phantom weighted sleeves strategically position an optimal amount of weight directly on the arms and/or legs, specifically the forearm portion of the arms and the calf portion of the legs. The strategic and optimal weight placement allows the athlete to safely add resistance to their throwing, swinging, running and/or jumping motions without messing up their mechanics. The athlete is also able to practice with the same equipment (ball, bat, club, racquet, etc) as they would use in competition, thus not disrupting their Autonomic Nervous System (their repeater muscles). The athlete is now able to strengthen the EXACT muscle groups used in game situations, while reinforcing the correct muscle memory through normal reps in practice. The result is increased STRENGTH, POWER and SPEED.Check out the “Science” page to get more detailed information and see the testing results.

Is it safe?

There is an inherent risk of injury when playing any sport or training. Phantom has consulted and tested with numerous professionals in the athletic and medical fields,from professional athletes to orthopedic surgeons to kinesiologists, biomechanists, physical therapists and even chiropractors to make the product as safe as possible.

Who uses it?

Phantom weighted sleeves are worn and trusted by professional athletes, as well as used by youth athletes and everyone in between. We have Major League baseball players to PGA tour trainers using and endorsing the sleeves.Visit the testimonials page to see what people are saying about the sleeves.

Does it work for my sport?

Phantom sleeves can be used for any sport! As a general rule, anything you can do without the sleeve, you can do with the sleeve on and get stronger, quicker and faster. Visit our “Sports” page to choose your sport and see how Phantom can help you. If you don’t see your sport listed please let us know and we’d be happy to add it to the list.

How do I put the sleeve on?

Check out our “How to video” for the proper way to put the sleeve on.

Can I wash the sleeves?

Yes, the sleeves can be machine washed or hand washed. If you machine wash make sure to use the gentle cycle. Remember to remove the weights prior to washing.

How much weight should I use?

Our recommended weight limit is .5lbs total for the Sm sleeves and 1lb total for the Md and Lg sleeves for each arm and/or leg. Remember, the idea behind the sleeves is less weight, more reps. If you add too much weight you are increasing your likelihood to compromise your mechanics.
