It can happen to the best of us. Wrist pain is unfortunately a common issue when it comes to exercising. Whether you're lifting weights, holding an iron-cross pose, hammering out burpees, or doing pushups against the wall upside down, your wrists are pretty vulnerable. After hearing from a ton of our friends that they were experiencing wrist pain, we decided to go to the drawing boards and create a way to save your wrists. Weight lifting wrist wraps assist in providing stability and support to the wrist. You'll benefit by an improvement in your form/technique and you are less likely to injure your wrists. Even experienced gym rats will express that when weight lifting, wrist support is something that is necessary because wrists are weak and can severely limit maximum lifting potential.
We started by buying a lot of the competitor's wraps and testing ourselves. We found that some of the other elastic wrist wraps for lifting on the market come up short in a few ways. First and foremost, most of them were too tight. The circulation was cut off and we ended up cutting our workouts short because there wasn't enough blood flow to keep pushing. Second, the velcro enclosures were far too skinny and by the 3rd or 4th workout, it started to tear. Lastly, we didn't like how any of them looked.
Introducing our weightlifting wrist wraps - designed and developed by Crazy Muscle. Here are a few details about the weightlifting wrist wraps:

The weight lifting wrist supports aren't just good for working out. If you happen to have tendonitis from working on a computer all day, the straps will double as a way to provide some compression and stability during your work day. You'll probably want to get another pair so that you aren't using a damp wrist wrap from the morning workout session.
Here's How to Wrap a Wrist for Support
One thing to note - Don't make a habit of wearing the powerlifting wrist wraps during your entire workout because no matter what, you aren't getting full blood circulation to your hands. If you are about to do a series of workouts where you know either your form isn't perfect or you know that the particular movement has given your wrist some issues in the past, by all means wrap up! On legs day, leave the wraps at home.
