One of the most frustrating things which often happens in functional fitness training and CrossFit is when you rip and tear your hands up. It’s painful and stops or at least limits you from training the rest of that week.
We’ve previously discussed proper hand care, as well as given you a thorough breakdown of how to tape your hands to prevent them from ripping. However, continuously taping your hands can become costly, and REBEL Elite Fitness have recently launched their awesome new REBEL Gymnastics Grips which offer a great alternative.
These grips safeguard your hands from rips and tears during training workouts like pull-ups, kettlebell swings, dumbbell swings, toes-to-bar and muscle-ups. As we know, these high intensity workouts can take a damaging toll on your hands and these REBEL Gymnastics Grips have been specially designed to protect your hands from ripping and even forming nasty calluses.
They are made from the highest quality leather and the design allows them to move naturally with the reflexes of your wrist, providing a comfortable fit. The leather also gives you the perfect grip, with a comfortable, soft and natural leather underside and a buffed outside which eliminates slipping during use and obviously then allows you to push harder without worry of rips and tears.
They are super easy to use and have an adjustable hook and loop strap which wraps around your wrist and then can be adjusted to your preference.
They come in three sizes: Small (fits up to 100mm), Medium (fits up to 115mm), and Large (fits over 130mm), so they will suit all sized hands. The measurements are based on the size of your palm, so that means you’ll measure from the base of your palm to where your index finger starts to see which size is best for you. If you’re somewhere in-between on sizes, rather go with a larger size, as it will work better than having a slightly tighter fit.
If you are serious about taking care of your hands, these are a definitely accessory you need to own. To order yours now, check them out here.
