Powerlifting & Weightlifting Wrist Wraps

Protect Your Wrists and Maximize Your Lifting Potential With Wrist Wraps

One of the essential pieces of equipment for any weightlifter is a pair of gym wrist wraps. Ever asked yourself why they put those annoying thumb loops on wrist wraps? Yea, we don't know either! Did you know having the thumb loop on will disqualify your lift at a sanctioned powerlifting meet?

 

We got rid of the thumb loops and developed a unique system with our Villain Wrist Wraps called the "Belt Loop Tightening System." This system allows you to control how secure you want your wrist wraps and makes working out much more enjoyable. With the right wrist wraps and proper form, you can minimize your risk of injury and maximize your training results.

 

Wrist wraps support your wrists and help keep them in a neutral position, thus maximizing your power through each lift. This allows you to lift heavier and target specific muscle groups more effectively.

What are Wrist Wrist Wraps, and How Do They Work?

Villain Wrist Wraps are made of a high-quality fabric woven in a proprietary pattern that provides the ultimate wrist support and stability during weightlifting. They come in various lengths, including 16-inch, 24-inch, and 30-inch. The longer the wrist wrap, the more support they will provide, but they will be bulkier to wear, so there is a tradeoff.

 

When bench pressing, your wrists are subjected to a lot of stress and strain. One of the most critical functions of a wrist wrap is to limit wrist extension, thus providing you with maximum power output through the lift. Too much wrist extension can cause pain, discomfort, and even injury if you're not careful. Villain Wrist Wraps help distribute that stress evenly across your wrist, providing support and reducing the risk of injury.

Benefits of Using Wrist Wraps

There are several key benefits to using wrist wraps, including:

 

  • Increased wrist stability and support
  • Reduced risk of a wrist injury
  • Improved lifting form and technique
  • Ability to lift heavier weights
  • Protection for your wrist during intense workouts

Choosing the Right Wrist Wraps

Various wrist wraps are available, each with unique features and benefits. When choosing a pair of wrist wraps, consider the following factors:

 

  • Material: We offer a regular and a STIFF version. The regular material is our most popular. The STIFF offers a cast-like feel and will be rougher on the skin. The STIFF provides the most support.
  • Length: We offer 16-inch, 24-inch, and 30-inch. The longer the wrist wraps are, the more support they provide, but they also are bulkier on the wrist.
  • Support:  If you have wrist pain or are recovering from an injury, look for a pair of wraps that provide maximum support.
  • Purpose:Make sure to choose a pair of wrist wraps for your intended purpose. Do you have an injury or need a pair for those heavy sets? This can help dictate what length and material to go with.

How to Wrap Your Wrists with Wrist Wraps

Wrapping your wrists with wrist wraps is a straightforward process. Follow these steps:

 

  1. Start by placing the tab through our belt loop at the opposite end. Stick your hand through the hole and place it over your wrist joint.
  2. Wrap the longer end wrap around your wrist, pulling it tight as you go.
  3. Repeat the wrapping process several times, making sure to overlap each layer.
  4. Once you've reached your desired level of support, secure the wrap with Velcro.
