Arm sleeves protect the arms when it is cold leaving the arms feeling much warmer than without arm sleeves. Arm sleeves are great for when working out because it helps the body to sweat more causing the arms to lose fat faster than without sleeves.
They do nothing to help. Unless you have elbow problems or if the sleeve has a pad in it, then it helps protect you elbow if you were to fall
The real reason for wearing them is for keeping your circulation in the arms going. For example, you would wear it on your shooting arm in basketball, but on both arms in tennis. Does that make sense?
Basketball players wear sleeves on the arm they shoot with so it stays warm. In addition it is an extension of the wrist sweat bands from the old days, keeping the sweat from running down their arm and onto their shooting hand. Keeping their shooting hand dry is important for feel on the ball when passing, dribbling and shooting.
