Wrist Wraps

Was at the doctor today for my ankle and asked about my wrist, doesn't seem to be anything serious but I want to start using some wrist wraps on my days that I am doing presses.

Does anyone use them and can you recommend me some?

My company makes and sells them. Not sure if this is the style you were looking for, but if so, we have the best deal around on them. If you want the kind with velcro I would just go to a local sporting goods store and buy a pair of Harbingers or whatever for $12.

Exactly what I was looking for, just ordered some from you.

Doubt you'll be disappointed. My spun compression shirt / compression socks have been awesome for hockey, and those look like solid wraps. To me it doesn't make sense, but I find that I am less hot wearing the compression shirt playing hockey than I am when I am just bareskinned. When I'm skating I can feel the material breathing and it has a cooling effect. And the socks help me "feel" my skating stride 100% better than barefoot/regular socks.

Wear those socks for your 10k. They help a ton.

Makes perfect sense, while I don't own any spun stuff (yet) I did accidentally buy some underarmour heat gear pants a few years ago when I was working the door at a bar, wore them in zero degree weather and while I didn't notice it while outside once I went inside I could feel the heat being pulled off my body.

good advice, I am actually going to order the neon green or pink. We are dressing pretty ridiculously, and those will fit the theme better. Plus I love them so much it would be nice to have a second pair, especially one without the stench of hockey gear.

Yeah the green are cool and loud, the grey (or black that I think you already have) are nice so you can wear them to work if you want, but the pink might be perfect for that event!

Re: Wrist Wraps

I forgot to post this, but figured this would be a good place to do it. We're selling some charity tee shirts to benefit the guy who lost both his legs in the bombing in Boston. We're donating 100% of the profits from these to him.

Hope someone can buy one to help!

You wrap them around your wrist and tuck in the strings so they stay secure. Or were you asking something else lol.

There should be a video on the product page of our website. What solly said is spot on though.

Yeah the video is great and they work exactly as advertised regarding tightening and loosening them.
