Wrist WrapsIndustrial Athletic offers one of the best selections of high-quality wrist straps, wraps and supports in NZ. Wrist wraps are an important part of every weightlifter's kit, providing strength and stabilisation during heavy lifting, and help keep your wrists straight during a pressing movement.
Some wrist wraps have thumb loops which help to position them so that the wrist is correctly supported, and to keep them in place. Some have a super strong Velcro which lets you slacken or tighten the pressure quickly, while some are friction locked by a twist of the wrist. Overuse of wrist wraps can actually limit your strength development, so only use them when working at near maximum workout load. Thinner cotton wraps are best for snatches and jerks where more wrist movement is required, while thicker wraps are indicated for bench and shoulder presses. Wrist wraps come in different strengths, so before you buy wrist wraps, feel free to have a chat to one of the Industrial Athletic team to help find the best product for your fitness goals.
