Thread: Wrist straps for working out

    Wrist straps for working out

    Hello I'm a c5/c6 with limited hand function and when i workout I use wrist straps, I'm starting to do more weights and the straps I have are irritating my skin.

    I cannot find anything anywhere that has padding, the only thing I can find are ankle straps which are too big for my wrists.

    Anyone know a good pair of straps?

    The ones that I use. http://www.amazon.com/Harbinger-Neop.../dp/B0054LZTXS

    They are ankle cuffs but have a really good size adjustment.

    They have 1/4" thick neoprene for padding. If you needed a thicker padding, you can easily build it up with added layers of neoprene. The 1/4" has been suffice for me.

    I was wrong, the padding is 4mm's thick. Anyway, they are a comfortable fit for me.

    Hi,

    A really great glove is "active hands" here's the link to their website: http://www.activehands.com/
    They come with more padding then the traditional weightlifting gloves and last a lot longer too. They're a little pricey but you're definitely paying for quality.
