Conclusion

Wether you are a beginner or advance weightlifter, powerlifter or crossfiter you will benefit from using wrist wraps. In this post I have not gone over all the brands that do make wrist wraps. Instead, I chose some more popular ones available. When purchashing a pair of wrist wraps you do not necesseraly need to buy the most expensive ones, the important part is to actual own a pair because over time it will help decrease risks of injuries to your wrist. If you are a first time buyer look for something that generally fits good. I know that can be hard to do while buying online but usually if you are a relatively small person with small wrist the smaller sizes such as 12″ in length will fit you appropriately. Same goes for medium to big built lifters. They’ll want to focus more on 18″ wrist wraps. For those seeking powerlifting wrist wraps. Essentially they are the same as for weightlifters. You just have to look for the overall biggest size in length. That way you can lock your wrist even more so that a weightlifter or crossfiter would want to. A good size for powerlifting wrist wraps is around 22″ to 24″ some brands may even go bigger than that. Overall you want to look for a pair that you enjoy visually and feel comfortable training with. Over time your wrists will thank you.
