Step-by-Step Guide to Using Lifting Straps

Preparing the Lifting Straps

Positioning the Strap:
  • Hold the lifting strap in one hand with the loop or end facing up.
  • Position the strap around your wrist, ensuring it sits comfortably.
Wrapping Technique:
  • With your palm facing up, loop the free end of the strap around the barbell or dumbbell handle.
  • Pull the strap through the loop, creating a secure grip around the barbell or dumbbell.
  • Tighten the strap by pulling the free end to remove any slack, ensuring a firm grip on the weight.

Adjusting the Grip

  • Adjust the placement and tightness of the lifting strap to ensure it provides a secure grip on the weight.
  • The strap should be snug enough to prevent slipping but not too tight that it restricts blood flow or causes discomfort.

Performing the Lift

Executing the Exercise:
  • With the lifting straps securely in place, perform your weightlifting exercise (e.g., deadlifts, rows, pull-ups).
  • Focus on maintaining proper form and technique, utilizing the added grip strength provided by the straps.
Grip and Technique:
  • Ensure your fingers wrap around the barbell or dumbbell handle to reinforce the grip provided by the lifting straps.
  • Avoid over-reliance on the straps; use them to supplement your grip strength rather than replace it entirely.

Removing the Lifting Straps

  • After completing your set or workout, release the tension on the lifting straps by unwrapping them from the barbell or dumbbell handle.
  • Remove the straps carefully to avoid any sudden movements that could strain your wrists or hands.

Proper Care and Maintenance

  • Store your lifting straps in a clean, dry place after each use to maintain their integrity and longevity.
  • Wash fabric straps periodically according to the manufacturer’s instructions to keep them clean and odor-free
  • No products in the cart.
