Our grip is our weakest and most vulnerable link to a successful workout regimen. Like a chain, we are only as strong as our weakest link. The success of our workout depends upon our connection to the weight. Fatigue, due to high repetitions using lighter weights or failure due to a heavy weight, is caused by an unsupported and/or unprotected grip. This can result in dropping the weight, cutting a set short due to loss of focus, or even injury.
The grip is comprised of a group of small finger flexor muscles in the forearm. These finger flexor muscles (see diagram) are connected to the fingers by tendons passing through the wrists. Also running through the wrists are arteries for blood flow, and nerves. These small finger flexor muscles allow the hands to hold onto and carry the weight on the weightlifting bar. In order to gain maximum development and isolation of the larger muscles in the body - such as the back, arms, and chest - the grip and hands need to be protected and supported.

VERSA GRIPPS ELIMINATE GRIP FATIGUE AND FAILURE
Versa Gripps allow the user to concentrate on the larger muscle groups while not thinking or worrying about their grip. When you no longer have to worry about losing your grip or your grip becoming fatigued, you will then be able to concentrate on and appreciate the mind/muscle connection. Huge gains will be experienced.
Versa Gripps are used for all pushing (as in bench press) and pulling (as in dead lift) movements in strength training. The patented Versa Gripps take the place of gloves, lifting straps, hooks, and wrist supports. By using Versa Gripps, both types of movement are accomplished safely, easily, and comfortably.
Unlike lifting straps that are difficult to use (particularly over your head), Versa Gripps are flexible, self-supporting, and stand up in front of your hand. This design makes it quick and easy to reach them with the tips of the fingers on the same hand that they are worn on.
The gripping portion is made of a proprietary material that is ruggedly reinforced. This gripping material, engineered exclusively for Versa Gripps, is designed to remain tacky and grippy throughout the life of the product. The grip is wide enough to cover the width of the hand offering protection from the knurls of the weightlifting bar as well as protection from calluses. Other weightlifting gloves encase the entire hand and become a breeding ground for bacteria and disease. Versa Gripps allow the hand to breath, offering freedom of movement for the fingers and the thumb.
Another valuable feature is their ability (should it become necessary) to immediately release the weight. Simply let go. This is not possible when using straps or hooks.
Versa Gripps are an extremely versatile product. They can be used to enhance almost any exercise in the gym. They are effective in all pushing and pulling exercises. Versa Gripps help to enhance the “Mind-Muscle Connection.” This gives the athlete the ability to focus on specific muscle groups without the distraction or hindrance of grip fatigue.Learn more
