    Not a fan of wrist wraps unless I'm benching, squatting and ohp heavy. That's usually deep into my sets. I have strong wrists and forearms. If you become too reliant on wraps you run the risk of weakening your wrists.
    Strength is understanding that your power is both physical and emotional..

    THERE IS NO PAIN
    that I cannot and will not fight through.

    Those ones jen posted are good and all but not for heavy lifting. U can't get enough support out of those. U need atleast 3 revolutions to get a good casting from a wrap on a wrist.

    Everybody likes Gangsta Wraps.
    Bigorexia is real.
    And you're too small.

    Imo it's a genetic thing that many people overlook. I have horribly weak wrists when pressing but above average forearms and a damn good grip. I'd put money down on out pulling anyone on this board double overhand.
    But get on the bench and I can't go over 225 without cast wraps. They just roll right over.




    As far far as my choice in wraps... I like em stiff and thick. Allhomo.
    Pioneer silver beast are great for cast. Currently using Cerberus Extreme. They're pretty crazy; takes everything I got to crank them on.
