I'm a 5'1" girl who has been training as a powerlifter for about a year now because that's what he does. I got tired of always using my guys wrist wraps (let's be honest. They smelled FUNKY sometimes) and decided to get some of my own to use. I chose these and they work GREAT. So great, in fact that I've gotten to use them about 3 times in about the month since I got them. He uses them ALL the time and claims they're his. We use them to support our wrists on heavier squats, bench, incline, and pretty much any movement that puts strain on the wrists. They're super rigid and do a great job of keeping our wrists straight and they hold up just as well at his 365lb bench as they do for my little 105lbs.
