Lifting Straps are an integral part of a lifters accessories. No matter your level of experience, weather your a professional athlete or a novice, lifting straps are a must.
With the majority of pulling exercises like rows, shoulder shrugs and deadlifts, the first sign of fatigue is your grip, followed by forearm fatigue.
Utilising straps will reduce and in some instances eliminate forearm fatigue and grip fatigue.
Rappd have a few different styles of lifting straps.
SINGLE LOOP LIFTING STRAPS
Also known as figure 6s this style of strap is a good option for medium to heavy weight as the tail of the strap will wrap around the bar 2 to 3 times and will need to be wrenched tight.
FIGURE 8 LIFTING STRAPS
Figure 8 straps are easy and quick to use as all you need to do is place your hand through one loop, feed strap under barbell and place your hand inside second loop and grip bar. Figure 8 straps are also a good choice for medium to heavy weight.
POWER GRIP LIFTING STRAPS
Power Grips Straps are a wrist support and strap in one!
The strap itself is short in design with a dowel at the end to help lock your grip in. The dowel will wedge at the base of your palm and the barbell. These straps are a good option for light to medium weight.
With all straps always wrap from under not over the barbell or bar.
I've been using Rappd accessories for years. My belt (comes in pink too!) is atleast 5 years old and is still in good condition til this day. The wrist and knee wraps are still in great condition too! Love that I can walk into any supplement store and many gyms to find Rappd accessories available everywhere I go!
Highly recommend brand! I personally purchased 7 mm knee sleeves and “slim waist trainer”. As a fitness professional I was bit sceptical about the “waist trainer” ability to slim my waist ha ha. Well I didn’t purchased the product to expect slimming effects. I purchased the product as I suffer with chronic back pain. Slim waist trainer allowed me to lift,squat,deadlift with minimum pain. Any female professional or competitors who struggle with any lower back/abdomen pain should definitely try the waist trainer. It’s more functional tool then sliming tool.
I purchased a pair of RAPPD G Force gloves a year ago, and the comfort and quality are still like brand new. The wrist straps give me plenty of confidence especially when the weight gets bumped up, and the wide Velcro allows plenty of adjustment to get the appropriate firmness.Very highly recommended
Richard is an awesome operator.He looks after me and my gym members,personally delivering stock,and making sure sizing and quality is spot on.His products are always consistant,and he not only listens to suggestions to improve,but acts on those recommendations .The best service lve ever had for gym accessories.His quick release tapered belts suit my smaller female clients,as they tend to suit the female form better than the 4 inch standard belts.Give him a go...He will not let you down..
Excellent service and great products. Have made a few orders on the website and I received the products promptly. I received a text with my delivery details and received all the goods in perfect condition. Good to see a brand out there that cares! No complaints.
Just recently got the wrist wraps and the powerlifting belt, comfortable and extremely supportive with that heavy duty feel. Definitely recommend these products to anyone looking for quality training gear!!
Absolutely amazing service and great products. From the first interaction until now the service has been second to none. I love my powerlifting belt and have now added alot more products to my collection. Thankyou Rappd
