At first glance, you will notice that the Gymreapers lifting straps have some extra padding on the wrists for comfort. It’s a great pair of straps for the deadlift unless you’re planning on lifting over 400 lbs or 181 kg.

 

Overall, I would recommend these straps for training days instead of strongman competitions.

 

 

Stiff Weightlifting Wrist Wraps

It's almost second nature to adjust your wrist wraps after every set when you’ve become accustomed to training.

 

Enter the Gymreapers wrist wraps. Aside from the cool logo they have designed, the loop around the thumb makes it easier for adjustment, and you can find them on Amazon at a great value.

Strength Wrist wraps

If you’re looking for good wrist support for doing overhead snatches, the Gymreapers wrist wraps will provide you substantial support for your wrists.

Again it has a pretty cool logo that will make you look badass while you perform 200+ lbs overhead snatches, pull-ups, or toes to the bar.

 

However, I would refrain from putting these on if you’re working on handstand walks or handstand pushups. While they provide excellent support for your wrists, they don’t exactly offer sufficient room for flexibility.
