Do a quick search for “wrist wraps” on good ol’ Google or Amazon and you’ll find a bunch of thick powerlifting type wrist supports.
All of which are great in their own way and there’s some trusted brands out there for sure.
But one thing that none of these wraps offer is the element of MOBILITY. These wraps are all aimed at complete stability, offering little to no motion at all.
That’s great if you’re gearing up to bench 315 lbs…
But if you’re a functional athlete dealing with the occasional wrist discomfort and/or are looking for some additional support without complete immobility, then you’re not going to want one of those thick, bulky wrist wraps.
That’s the flaw with most wrist wraps out there.
They’re too limiting.
Imagine what happens when you want to do a circuit with DB push press but need to move quickly burpees… You either have to take the time to unwrap the wrap or you do burpees on your fists.
Oh and then when you want to hop back up and go back to DB push press, you have to tighten them again!
One that’s not efficient, and two, and I’m not looking to get bloody knuckles.
It’s a huge inconvenience.
If you have such wrist wraps, you know! That’s why you have to pick and choose when to wear the wraps.
However, with the Element 26 IsoWraps, you have the freedom to wear the wraps for nearly anything!
That’s because they’re one-inch in thickness.
Ok so now you may have concerns about them not being very stable or supportive…
That’s fair, but don’t worry. Just because they’re one-inch does not make them any less supportive.
Constructed from premium suede leather, these wraps are both very durable and incredibly supportive. They’re built for longevity.
Oh and because they’re not bulky, you have a BONUS option of where you want to apply them on your wrist.
You see, the wrist itself contains a bunch of tiny bones, each articulating upon another. That’s what allows your wrist to move the way it does and distribute a bunch of force.
So you can wrap the IsoWrap directly on those tiny bones to prevent wrist motion and limit extension (this technique may be preferred if you have pain pressing a barbell for example).
But if you have some tendonitis-like symptoms going on (pain from the tendons that feed into the wrist), then wrapping just below those tiny wrist bones is the way to go. That way is also recommended if you have to perform any activity on your hands since that will allow an element of wrist extension aka more mobility.
And remember, these wraps are not just for athletes with pain!
They’re for anyone who wants that added advantage in their training to increase their pressing strength and overall wrist stability in movements such as cleans, snatches, and front squats .
So if you’re looking for a wrap that’s durable, supportive, non-restrictive, and versatile, then the Element 26 IsoWrap Wrist Wraps are easily the way to go. Nothing else like them.
