Deadlifting Straps
The Drawbacks of Traditional Deadlifting Straps

The issue with lifting straps is that you have to use two hands to wrap them around the bar. And once locked on, there’s a high risk for injury. If you need to let go of the weight bar, for example, you risk pulling the tendons in your wrists. And since straps are only used for pulling exercises, they’re often tight, cutting off the blood circulation in your wrists.

Versa Gripps are a better alternative to deadlifting straps. With a unique 3-in-1 design—they’re like hooks, straps, and gloves, all in one. And with built-in arch support, a quick-release safety feature, and one-hand grip movement, Versa Gripps help you stay safe during training.

Wrist Straps for Deadlifting
Why Use Wrist Straps for Deadlifts?

Deadlifting is an excellent way to build strength and muscle, but it can put serious strain on your wrists and hands. When you deadlift, all the weight passes through your wrists and hands, which can leave you susceptible to overextension, wrist failure, and injury.

Investing in quality deadlift wrist wraps or an alternative product—like Versa Gripps—can help you avoid injury and maximize your lifts. Specialized wrist straps for deadlifting can help you:

  • Get a secure and comfortable grip
  • Maintain proper form
  • Stabilize your wrists during heavy lifts
  • Target muscles more effectively
  • Avoid pain and discomfort in the wrists and hands
  • Reduce your risk of injury

Versa Gripps aren’t just for deadlifts. They can provide you with extra support during a variety of exercises, including shrugs, rows, and all pushing exercises like bench press.

If your grip is failing during deadlifts (or any other exercise), it’s a good idea to use deadlift straps—or better yet, Versa Gripps—which can help you avoid injury and overextension. Don’t wait until you injure yourself. If you're struggling to maintain your grip on the bar, it's time to give deadlifting straps or weightlifting grips a try.

No. Deadlifting straps are simply a tool to help you get the most out of your workout. They don't do the lifting for you—you still need to put in the effort. Using weightlifting straps is no different than wearing supportive shoes or using a weightlifting belt. Straps can help build strength and endurance, especially when working out at your home gym, without a trainer or spotter.

It really comes down to personal preference. Some weightlifters prefer gloves, while others prefer lifting straps. Versa Gripps are better than gloves or straps alone. In fact, they’re a 3-in-1 product that effectively replaces gloves, straps, and hooks.

Versa Gripps’ cutting-edge technology improves your grip to help prevent fatigue and injuries that can set you back. With built-in arch support, a quick-release safety feature, and one-hand grip movement, Versa Gripps offer unparalleled performance. It’s like having straps, gloves, and hooks—all in a single product.
