NO MEDALS FOR DAMAGED HANDS
WEARING GRIPS IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS.
IT'S THE SIGN OF EFFECTIVE TRAINING!
Ripping your hands while training is almost unavoidable and chances are it will happen to all of us at some stage. While the build up of calluses will help your hands when training, if they aren't protected or managed correctly they can become painful and ultimately tear. Injured hands are little use when training which usually means some rest time until they heal. Ask yourself this question, if you are struggling with painful calluses or torn palms, are you actually performing your best?
Grips won't prevent you from the dreaded lumps and bumps, but they can help to delay and minimise them while providing essential protection for your palms.
Professional athletes such as Tia-Clair Toomey, Sammy Wood, Ricky Garard, Bryan Cardeno and Courtney Fitzharris use them, and lets face it do you think they show off their hand scars as a sign of their ability, or do you think they see grips as a performance aid to help them achieve their goals?
There are plenty of brands, styles and options to choose from and in this article we'll review the benefits of the products from JAW (Just Another WOD). They're made in Australia and are the Worlds No. 1 Cloth Grips.
LIGHTWEIGHT & DURABLE
JAW Grips are meant to be tight fitting and are available in 3x core sizes : Small, Medium and Large. As they're made from highly durable cloth they're designed to stretch as you exercise. Because of their snug fit and lightweight construction, its almost like you aren't wearing them. With the JAW Grips you cut the finger holes to ensure they fit securely on your fingers because what is the point if they keep slipping off right!
WHAT ARE THEY SUITABLE FOR?
GO FARTHER FASTER // BE STRONGER LONGER
Let's be totally clear. JAW Grips will not prevent your hands from ripping. But they will help to protect them and delay the onset of calluses. Combine them with an effective hand care regime such as the WOD Welder Hand Care Kit and who knows you may never have the extreme rips you've experienced again.
