    Versa Grips


    I am thinking of getting these for my self and my brother for xmas.

    Has anyone used these and can comment on them?

    Do they support your wrist? How do they compare to wrist wraps

    Thanks.

    I haven't used them, but did look them up to see what they were.
    Here's what I would say based on what I saw:
    They are probably an OK substitute for straps.
    They are likely not as good a substitute for a good pair of wrist wraps.

    If you and your brother are relatively new to lifting and aren't using huge poundages, they would probably be fine. If you need alot of support for pressing movements, I would go with a regular wrist wrap. You could use these as a starting point and get some better wraps down the road as you get stronger.

    I have the APT 36" convict wrist wraps and love them. They are pretty stiff, but I can adjust the tightness of the wraps to get the level of support I want. I like something a little less stiff for knee wraps (like the ZRV) if you want to go with the APT. I also have the APT straps and they are also great. They are practically indestructible and should last a long, long time, unlike some of the cheaper straps.

    As far as wrist support goes, they don't give you too much. They are more like straps and help with your grip. They also help if you get pain in your hands on bench or shoulder press. If you're looking for wrist support then go with some good wraps, the versa grips will definitely help save your grip on back day though.

    Ive been wanting a pair myself and just have not up the change to get them, but I did test them at the 09 Arnold and they were good and supported my wrist pretty well. Ive been using hooks for the last year and I hate them, there loose and the move arond to much for me so Ill probally get the versa in the near future lord willing.

    what is wrist support for you? if it means compression, then yes they can "support" on bench/pushing, but they'd still be pretty bad at that, and cheap wrist wraps would do a better job at that. If you are looking for real wrist support get some real wrist wraps.
