Weight Lifting Wrist Wraps is an essential to almost all fitness activities. The reason being, that right now we can bend out wrist back sometimes 90 degrees or more, and when we add stress like holding barbells, dumbbells, or even just the pressure of our own body weight on our wrists put our joints, ligaments and tendons at risk of injury.
To maximize our muscle output, and get the most out of our performance it is recommended that our wrist only bend back 40 - 65 degrees, before added resistance of any type. The further back we go, without proper technique we always risk injury, and also we hinder our maximal muscle output.
Our goal in resistance training is to put stress on muscles, not our joints, putting our wrist back in uncompromising positions can lead to added stress on our joints. Bear Grips makes three different styles of weight lifting wrist wraps for the way you workout.
They offer two styles of Velcro closure wrist wraps, which are their two band wraps, and their extra strength wrist wraps. The number of elastic bands tells you how strong the wraps are. The two band wrist wraps by name have two bands and offer the most mobility. While the extra strength wrist wraps which are exclusive to Bear Grips, offers four bands! This is the most support and protection you can get!
Both these styles come in three sizes: 12", 18", 24" and an assortment of colors. They are also recommended for use outside of gym and workouts, often used in gymnastics, as a wrist brace, to alleviate symptoms of carpel tunnel and many more.
