Again Faster Grips

http://www.againfaster.com/grips/

I had never heard of these, never even thought about getting something like this but I am curious. Anyone using them, or gloves, tape ect...
I had always heard that using gloves took away from your grip strength, just wondering if this would do the same

Re: Again Faster Grips

I went through a hand protector phase when my hands started getting destroyed on a weekly basis, I ultimately just sucked it up and started taking even better care of my hands with some occasional tape wraps thrown in.

My personal stance these type of grips? they're silly. I tried a pair (not these specific grips) about a year and a half ago, used them on a few workouts over a 2-3 week period and I hated them.

The grip feel was so unnatural and trying to go high rep or burn through a good amount of CTB's was just awkward for me.

I suppose the best thing to do is buy and try though if you're really curious.

Re: Again Faster Grips

I boutgh a pair from Again Faster. I used them for one workout and haven't used them since. I feel like its harder to hold on to the bar, probably because of the bigger diameter you have to hold on to. Who knows, maybe my grip just sucks. I'll probably save them for when I rip my hands.

Re: Again Faster Grips

I have some that I bought from a gymnastic supply site. I love them. I only use them for WODs with 100 or more pull-ups. They really help. Our bars were made from rolled steel so they have a seam. The seam faces outward and it always grinds a hole in my palms. Some of the bars have tape but that will year my hands as well (on high reps). The grips eliminate that. You will see lots of blood on the bars after a day of Eva for example.

Re: Again Faster Grips

I have these http://www.ten-o.com/xq/asp/deptId.9...qx/product.htm wfs from ten-o. I use them when I have raw spots/ peeled off calluses. Had mine for quite a while and they are holding up great. I only use them for high rep pull ups, wouldn't want to use them on a barbell or anything else. They are meant for gymnastics bar work and work great on a pull up bar.

You can buy them cheaper from a gymnastics supply place...ten-o even sent me some free chalk when I bought mine

Re: Again Faster Grips

A gymnast i know reccomended them to me and now taping my torn up hands just doesn't seem as affective to me ... These are quicker and actually stay in place....From what I read, fit is everything with these things...I followed the directions on the site for sizing...they feel like they should be too small, but when using them I really can't even tell that they are there (except for the fact that there is no blood on the bar when my hands are already jacked up)

Again I would only use something like this as an alternative to taping up ripped up hands... I don't normally use them and hope that as my hands toughen up I'll use them even less...

The ones most gymnasts use have a dowel in the palm to maintain a false grip.

Or you could try something like in the link above (WFS).

Re: Again Faster Grips

I can't have open wounds on my hands because of my profession. If a rip is coming I go for the grips. I like them and think they were worth the cost. My grip does seem to go out sooner tho.
