wrist wraps
 
i was doing body wait split jerks today 195# and it was really killing my wrist should i invest in wrist wraps or will they become stronger. i feel that this is keeping me from putting up more weight.

Yes. I have a pair of schiek wraps and they're fantastic. I use them whenever I go overhead.

Hey Nate - wondering which ones you had specifically. I was looking at their site and there seems to be quite a few options.

Thanks!

Boris - I have the 12" Black line wraps. I prefer these to the Schiek line because the cotton used is a little stiffer and more supportive, IMO.

Awesome. Definitely going to consider a pair of those.

Thanks again

Absolutely. Also, since you're shopping around, Inzer and APT Pro Gear both make comparable products. Also APT gives you 10% off of every purchase forever for signing up for their mailing list.

There's also a thread in the Equipment forum just below talking about these new wrist wraps. I have a pair on order right now and will report back.

I think that definitely a good pair of wrist wraps are a must have in your bag.

There are many brands and materials. I recommend the ones made with cotton vice elastic material; they offer much better support.

I've used the red APT ones for years now, and they're still kickin.
