Lifting straps are used to assist grip strength. If your grip won't allow you to hold onto the bar, you won't be able to train your legs and pulls for weightlifting. Using straps allows the athlete to take the focus off their grip so they can become a better all around lifter.
Our straps were designed to quickly release when the bar is dropped. With our straps only wrapping under and around once, this safety feature allows the lifter to drop the barbell safely and quickly.
To set up, place straps under and through the closed loop, with the strap sitting gently across the crease of the wrist. Wrap the strap under and around the barbell. Tighten the strap under the thumb by rolling and tightening the barbell towards you. Repeat on both sides.
