What are the benefits of lifting straps?


Improved Grip Strength: Lifting straps can assist individuals with weak grip strength, allowing them to continue working on other muscle groups without being limited by their grip. You can focus more on completing heavy sets without having to worry about your grip failing.

Enhanced Muscle Engagement: Lifting straps can help lifters focus more on the target muscle group, rather than overcompensating with other muscle groups to compensate for grip fatigue.

Reduced Risk of Injury: Proper use of lifting straps can help reduce the risk of accidents or injuries in the gym.

Plateau Breaking: Lifting straps can be a valuable tool for individuals who have reached a plateau in their strength training. Grip is the first to go out when weight lifting and using lifting straps will help push you further.


Understanding Lifting Straps


What are lifting straps? Lasso Lifting Straps are the most common type of lifting straps, also known as wrist straps. While they can be a bit confusing for beginners, even experienced lifters can sometimes use them incorrectly. Lasso lifting straps are typically made from heavy-duty materials like cotton, nylon, or leather. They serve various purposes, with the most common use being in heavy-duty lifting exercises like deadlifts, lat pulldowns, and rows. These straps enhance grip control, reducing the strain on your hands and allowing you to focus on other aspects of your lift.

What are Figure 8 Straps? Shaped like the number 8, these straps provide a secure grip by looping one end around your wrists and the other end under and around the barbell. This design ensures you remain connected to the bar, even if you relax your grip. Figure 8 straps are excellent for grip-taxing lifts like heavy deadlifts and shrugs, but they may not be suitable for power movements or exercises that require weight dumping.

What are Lifting Grips? Lifting grips are versatile and serve multiple purposes. They offer wrist support and palm protection, making them a fantastic addition to your workout gear. Gymreapers lifting grips feature a durable grip material (leather or rubber) that can be worn flat against your palm or wrapped around the bar like a hook. These grips are popular among CrossFit athletes for WODs and are gaining popularity in various exercises, enhancing muscle definition and bar grip control.

What are Olympic Lifting Straps? Olympic weightlifting straps, often referred to as closed-loop straps due to their teardrop shape, provide minimal grip support compared to other strap types. However, their design makes it easy to release the bar when necessary, making them a popular choice for Olympic weightlifting. These straps can also be used for deadlifts, rows, and other exercises, offering a convenient and quick setup.
