Wrist wraps/Rogue wrist wraps?

After seeing Rogue post a pair of wrist wraps on their site for purchase, I have a couple questions:

1. What exactly are they used for, as in what lifts specifically?
2. At what point in training should an athlete even bother considering them?
3. What are some good things to look out for when buying them?


And lastly:
4. If anyone has purchased the Rogue wraps, how are they and how do they compare to other wrist wraps?



After seeing the rogue one's, my interest got the better of me and I now am curious to find out more about wraps :P

Wraps can be used for a variety of lifts. Personally, I use them whenever I go overhead so any press/pushpress/push jerk/split jerk or overhead squats and snatches. Some people like them when they front squat or clean too, it's a matter of preference. I think that any serious athlete should have a pair. I don't have the Rogue wraps but I have a pair of Schiek wraps that look very similar. If it has Rogue on it I have no doubt that it's a top of the line product.

My concern with the rogue wraps are that they are 30cm long, where as the ones ive seen on elitefts are 60 and 80 cm long. Any comments on that?

Re: Wrist wraps/Rogue wrist wraps?

Length is also a matter of personal preference. Before I got the Schiek wraps I use now (which are 12"/30cm) I had a pair of Harbinger wraps which were 24" or 60cm. Only difference is that the longer wraps were a little lighter so you had to wrap them around a few times to get a tight, secure feeling whereas the cotton in the 12" wraps is so heavy that once around will lock you in if that makes sense.

Re: Wrist wraps/Rogue wrist wraps?

I have some 24" and I prefer that length. Mine are very heavy-duty as I had some wrist issues when I bought them so I wanted something very solid. I use them a lot. Anything overhead is very nice to have the suppport and anything like thrusters, front squats where there is pressure on the wrists.

Re: Wrist wraps/Rogue wrist wraps?

Maybe that was a bit of an overstatement. I personally like using them because my wrists kill if I go overhead or bench heavy without them. I know guys who are great athletes who swear by them. No real science or facts to back up my statement, just anecdotal stuff.

Re: Wrist wraps/Rogue wrist wraps?

If your wrists never ever bother you at all, you probably don't need them.

If you are "aware" of your wrists when Front Squatting, doing Thrusters, Push Presses, etc, then you should get wrist wraps and use them.

I can't imagine doing a WOD with a lot of heavy thrusters or OHS without wraps/tape on my wrists.

What i wonder is this: could it bee that using the wraps has resulted in a loss of strength in your wrists which is why they hurt? The extra support means that your wrists dont need to work as hard, no?
