Weightlifting Grips Can Save Your Hands and Wrists

Weightlifting Grips Can Help You Train BetterLifting grips are designed to reduce stress on your hands and wrists by helping you get a more secure grip on your weights. They come in different shapes and sizes, and most are made of heavy-duty durable materials like leather or neoprene that provide cushioning and help prevent slippage. Both women’s and men’s weightlifting grips provide a range of benefits for weightlifters, including:

  • Better grip strength – By giving you a secure and comfortable grip on the bar, lifting grips help you perform more reps with more weight—with fewer worries about losing control.
  • Less hand fatigue – Grips protect your hands from blisters and calluses that can set you back. This allows you to train longer with less discomfort.
  • Enhanced control – Grips give you more control over the bar and dumbbells, so you can focus on your form and technique. Better form means less risk of injury and enhanced performance.
  • Versatility of use – Grips aren’t just for weightlifting. You can also use them for pull-ups, deadlifts, rows, and many other exercises inside and outside the gym.


When to Use Lifting Grips

Weightlifting grips can aid your performance for a range of exercises. In general, they’re ideal when:

  • You want a more secure grip on the bar
  • You’re lifting lighter weights
  • You want the flexibility to do both pulling and pushing movements without changing gear


How to Use Weightlifting Grips

Lifting grips are much more versatile than straps. They can be used for both pulling and pushing movements.

For pulling and lifting exercises, it’s best to curve the grip portion into your palm as it wraps around the bar. This allows for a quick and easy release when you’re finished.

For pushing movements, the grip pad should lay snugly against your palm to provide extra support and protection for your hands.


Choosing the Right Size Grips

Choosing the right size grips is everything. Well-fitting grips will help you train effectively without unnecessary snagging or stress on your hands or wrists. To find the right size, measure the circumference of your wrist and the length of your palm. Search for grips that match your size needs.
