FINDING THE BEST CROSSFIT GRIPS
There are many different choices for hand grips out there, so finding the right ones is not always the easiest task. Hand grips are typically used for bar work, like pull-ups and bar muscle ups. Although there are many different grip options to choose from, certain types might be better for your style of workouts. Before buying grips, here are some considerations:
First, you want to decide what your workouts will look like. Are you doing HIIT workouts, Crossfit, or are you a gymnast in need of new gymnastic hand grips. If you’re switching from one movement to another and don’t want to take your grips off, a flexible material such as lightweight stretchable canvas is a better option. Stiffer leather and suede grips may help provide greater overall protection, become these hand grips tend to be much stiffer, less flexible, and need to come off when doing movements that involve the barbell or rower.
Next, you want to find out what you want your grip protection to look like (full palm protection or just the center of your palm). Then pick the amount of finger holes you want for your workout. After that, you want to find a brand that is reliable and trustworthy. Finally after figuring all of this out, you should have a pretty good understanding of what type of grip you want and all you have to do is find your size.
