Step-by-Step Guide to Using Wrist Wraps

New wraps? No problem! Here’s how you can use them to hit your next PB.

 

Wrapping Technique

Preparing the Wrap:
  • Start by locating the thumb loop on one end of the wrist wrap.
  • Place your thumb through the loop and hold the wrap with the palm facing up.
Wrapping the Wrist:
  • Position the wrap so it covers the underside of your wrist and extends across the back of your hand.
  • Pull the wrap snugly around your wrist, starting from the bottom and working your way up towards your forearm.
  • Wrap it around 2-3 times, depending on the length of the wrap and the support you require.
Securing the Wrap:
  • Once wrapped around your wrist, secure the end of the wrap by tucking it through the loop or fastening it securely with the Velcro closure (if equipped).

Adjusting the Tightness

  • The wrap should be snug enough to provide support without cutting off circulation or causing discomfort.
  • Adjust the tightness by pulling the wrap slightly tighter or loosening it as needed. You should feel firm support around your wrist.

Range of Motion

  • Ensure the wrist wrap allows for a comfortable range of motion in your wrist joint. You should be able to flex and extend your wrist freely without restriction.

Performing the Lift

  • With the wrist wraps securely in place, perform your weightlifting exercise (e.g., bench press, overhead press, deadlifts).
  • Focus on maintaining proper form and technique, utilizing the added wrist support to stabilize your wrists during heavy lifts.

Removing the Wrist Wraps

  • After completing your set or workout, carefully remove the wrist wraps by gently pulling the Velcro strap or unwrapping them from your wrist.
  • Avoid pulling the wrap too quickly to prevent any discomfort or sudden movements that could strain your wrist.

Proper Care and Maintenance

  • Store your wrist wraps in a clean, dry place after each use to maintain their elasticity and durability.
  • Wash them periodically according to the manufacturer’s instructions to keep them clean and odor-free.
  • No products in the cart.
