Our new Weightlifting Straps Version 2.0 are in and they are vastly improved over our last version!Our new straps are made of a proprietary synthetic material which you won't find in any other weightlifting strap anywhere else! This material is:
- Durableand Tear resistant
- Chalk Friendly
These straps are a single-piece construction model without any stitching to weaken the strap, and they resist tearing through thousands of reps with the heaviest loads, with a tensile strength as high as 7000lbs! They are chalk friendly and absorb chalk and sweat without any odor, and without stiffening up like all the other straps on the market. They are also about 1/3 the thickness of any other strap you'll find, which means that you'll barely notice that there is any material between your hand and the bar! The material is smooth and pliable, and there is not even any need for bulky padding to make them comfortable.
Except for chalk, lifting straps are the primary piece of equipment used by our team members and others in the Cal Strength gym. Designed specifically for the needs of Olympic Weightlifters, these straps can also be used on any heavy pulling exercise (such as deadlifts or shrugs) to help you maintain your grip through the end of the your workout. For athletes doing the Olympic Lifts or CrossFit exercises, lifting straps are used on heavy pulls, hang snatches, snatches, and especially on volume days, and they are just as common in commercial gyms as they are in Olympic Lifting and Athletic Training Facilities. It takes practice to get the hang of using weightlifting straps, but it is worth the effort. Weightlifting straps can dramatically improve your grip, which will allow you to focus on larger muscle groups and perform more volume. For strength athletes and Olympic Weightlifters, lifting straps are a must.
Because they come un-attached, you can cut them to your preference and either use tape or stitching to loop the straps!
