Equipment question


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Equipment question within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: Do any of you wear wrist wraps during your "heavy" or ME days benching? Or only at meets? I guess the question goes for any equipment, wraps, belts, etc. I've read a few of the threads on bench shirts, but what about the other equipment???????

    I always use wrist wraps, on M.E. day and dynamic day. But I don't have the biggest bone structure around, and when I neglect to wear wrist wraps I end up with hand pain. I never wear knee wraps in training, though.

    I wear a belt, though, because I am kind of a pussy, and I don't particularly like back pain. I know a lot of people don't use them to train, but those guys are a lot tougher than me. I have tried it without a belt, and I don't care for it.

    Yep,couldnt do without the wrist wraps.I got 2 pairs( 22"-36")

    Just recently started wearing the elbow sleeves and love them.My elbows were feeling tender and ache some off and on.But the sleeves have help keep my elbows warm and flexable.

    Yes wear wrist wraps and elbow sleeves. A top westside expert recommended these Rehband elbow sleeves to me and they are the best, noit cheap but worth it. They are Sweedish and you will see some of the World's Strongest Man people wearing their products Worth every penny!

    Thanks CytoMel!
    Not that I'm ready for a meet, but can you wear elbow sleeves in a meet? I know you can wear wrist wraps.

    Anyone?

    No elbow sleeves at all. At least for bench. I wear then to squat too, and you can wear then ina meet to squat, just not to bench.

    Yes until i shirt up. Mine are loose, i just originally got them cause i thought after i was warm i would stay warm wearing them. But i definitly notice they help with little tingles of pain. So yes i train bench and tris with them. Except pushdowns.
