It was about time to get a new set of lifting straps but I had been putting it off for a while until I worked out with my friend and saw his Versa Grips. They looked pretty cool and are lifting straps which also offer protection like a glove would.
Now I haven’t used gloves for a long time because they bother me and feel a little weird when lifting. They also smell and get nasty after a while. I thought to myself well they couldn’t be any worse then gloves so I ordered a pair of the Pro grips.
When I first used them I was a little worried because they were a bit stiff but decided that they would wear in after a couple of workouts.
After a couple of weeks using these grips I am thoroughly impressed; they are broken in and I use them for all of my workouts not just pulling like I would with a set of wrist straps.
I also like the fact that they are open and not restrictive on my hands like a set of gloves would be.
If you’re in the market for a new set of straps or gloves, take some time to check these out and decide if they would be a good fit for you. Don’t forget to take note of the sizes before ordering.
