We all how know often you can tear your hands during a WOD. Some people cut and sand their callouses, others use tape or wear gloves to prevent the all too common stigmata hands.
I generally use and recommend gloves to prevent tears, but I’ll admit gloves are a straight up hassle or can’t be used, especially if you have a WOD where a hookgrip is required such as a heavy deadlift, snatch or clean and jerk.
In the past I’ve used gymnastic grips from Again Faster that worked great but I lost those awhile back. So I was excited to test the straps that WODGrips offered.
I’ve only used WODGrips for a few session but I’ve tested them in exercises from pull-ups, pushups, kettlebell swings, light snatches, rowing on the C2 and so far they have held up well. At $27.99 they are certainly worth a look.
In the video above I discuss the WODGrips a little more and if you want to check them out for yourself you can find their website here.
