Having shit stolen from you sucks. And being 16 also doesn't necessarily allow for a lot of money, I will happily buy you these (which I really like):

Not sure how to do this anonymously or whatever. I can also just get you a gift card but PM if interested and we'll figure it out.

u/VMwareJesus · 11 pointsr/homegym

I hate my local gym(s). So. Damn. Much. I know it's just me. I'm impatient, intolerant, and generally just can't stand the douchers everywhere. So, I finally finished up my garage gym. It's not pretty, but it works. I just need a few more plates, and a really good deal on a row machine (and to clean up the other half of the garage).

Right I made a thread for this but was told to move it to here so here's the repost:

When I was small my dad lost his ring and little fingers, as well as a lot of the functionality of his middle finger on his right hand in a workplace accident. As a result he can't do certain exercises, such as rows, pull ups etc without pain (still always manages to slightly out bench me though). For Christmas I'd like to get him some hooks so he can finally work his back properly, he's tried straps and been without luck. He still can use the rowing machine and do chin ups (although there is pain) so I don't think I'll need anything as intense as this:

But there's so much choice out there I'm not sure what to get. I was wondering if anyone had any experience and know a decent brand that can deliver to the UK by Christmas. He won't be pulling ridiculous numbers so it doesn't have to be rated for really high weights but it's a present so I'd like it to be durable and high quality. A couple of ones I've already looked at are: but it has crossfit in the name so I'm wary but the reviews are pretty bad.

Thanks for reading my massive essay, and any help is appreciated.

u/Bobby_Bouch · 10 pointsr/Fitness

Check out Anvil straps. Really good quality and very comfortable, would def but again.

u/why_rob_y · 8 pointsr/Fitness

Lots of people here seem to dislike straps, but I'll go ahead and suggest them. It isn't like your grip doesn't get a workout while using them - you still have to hold a decent portion of the weight, the strap just transfers some of the weight directly to your wrists. Even training with straps, my grip strength has improved (I'm able to go strapless at lower weights pretty easily when I try it or forget my grips). Just use them for the heaviest sets and go strapless for your warmups.

Here's the pair I own. I just can't stand the idea that my deadlift workout is not optimized simply because my grip is giving out first. I never want to miss out on doing a compound lift because of a single point failing, if I can avoid it (this is the same reason you wouldn't hit your triceps hard before benching).

u/orionshadow · 8 pointsr/Fitness

Wrist "wraps" and "straps" are two different things. Straps assist by wrapping around the bar to assist in exercises such as deadlifts and bent over rows.

Wraps assist with wrist strength for exercises such as overhead shoulder press or bench press.

I bought mine off of amazon:

u/Atiouss · 7 pointsr/Fitness

These are what I use.

u/Philll · 7 pointsr/fitnesscirclejerk

I've [4realz] had these straps for maybe six months now and they refuse to die on me. I bought a pair of Spud Inc. straps--probably the most frequently recommended brand--expecting that they'd quickly be called for. Those cheap straps ended up being a pretty good bargain.

So if you want cheap, go with the linked. If you're looking for long-term, go Spud.

u/voyvf · 6 pointsr/Fitness

Besides the obvious - barbell, plates, and cage?

  • Powerlift 2 lifting shoes. The .5 inch heel is simply fucking magic for those with limited ankle flexibility. If I could go back in time to when I started and give myself one recommendation, it'd be to buy a pair of lifting shoes. They're worth every penny.

  • A knock-off lever belt, 'cause fighting with the normal ones is a pain in the arse. I may break down and get an Inzer, but only if this one dies for some reason.

  • A pair of wooden rings that I hang from the pull-up bar of my cage. Good for ring pushups, flies, rows, and of course weighted dips.

  • A dip belt for use with the above mentioned rings and pull-up bar. Honestly, it's not terribly difficult to make one of these with a piece of chain, some pipe insulation for padding, and carabiners (if I can do it, pretty much anyone can) but I'm lazy.

  • Straps, really great for shrugs.

  • A flat bench.

  • A combination pec deck, lat pull-down, leg extension machine that I can't find the link for.

  • A white board and sharpies for my lifts on a given day.

    I also have an assortment of wrist and ankle weights, a 40lb weight vest, and an ab wheel.
u/MEatRHIT · 5 pointsr/weightroom

Yup, I use shitty <$10 ones for 600lb shrugs with no issues.

u/iDeZey · 4 pointsr/weightroom

That is correct. I googled the straps and they are shown as 2 identical straps. It has some photos of strongmen wearing them, 1 is upside down and the other isn't.

u/Underwater_Grilling · 4 pointsr/Fitness
u/acift · 4 pointsr/Weakpots

I suggest straps with a small amount of padding. I had ones without and they would eat up my wrists, but the padded ones are great.

I have these, and I like them.

u/sooshie · 3 pointsr/fitness30plus

Three things helped me.

  1. Voodoo Floss and this video
  2. This thingy
  3. Tricep Smash

    Numbers 1 and 3 hurt, but after 2 weeks of both of those every day, and wearing the band for support during workouts I haven't had any problems since (knock on wood).
u/vhalros · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I like ones that are made of old seat belts from a junker car, but you can also buy them. It is just a piece of nylon webbing so there are a limited amount of ways to screw it up. Just avoid ones with a bunch of fancy rubber or whatever.

There are two styles the "Olympic style" and the "loop style" (I just made up those terms, I don't know if any one else uses them). I prefer the Olympic style because it won't tighten up on you while you lift, but it is sort of personal preference.

u/Skwyre7 · 3 pointsr/rva

I have a door frame pull up bar (like this) with some ab straps. The pull up bar is excellent at hanging clothes on. I'm guessing it could also be used for exercise.

$20 OBO. Please don't make me move this to the new house.

u/Tiny311 · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

I've had these for a while and love em. Looks like u/pat0488 recommended them as well

u/MyParentsAre_Cousins · 3 pointsr/Fitness

I like doing farmers carries with weight plates and holding them with a pinch grip (don't know if that is an actual term, just the best way I can think to describe it.

Also I would do barbell curls with just my wrists. So sit down on the bench with your forearms flat on the bench with your hands hanging just past your wrist and curl the bar while keeping your arms flat against the bench.

You can also get a grip strengthener

I got botox shots in my hands 2x a year for about 10 years so I had almost no grip when I started training.

Also, you can buy wrist straps for grip assistance as well.

u/meepgiraffe · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I use these both at home and in the gym. Cheap and durable!

Straps. $7 amazon, Harbinger 21501 Heavy Cotton Lifting Straps (Pair)

u/hdote50 · 3 pointsr/leangains

That is the one that I bought and it works just fine. It will nto work with 45 lbs. plates that only have a hole for the barbell. I have to put the chain through the barbell handle holes if that makes sense.

u/UnderAmour · 2 pointsr/Fitness

You could, but it's better just to see if your gym has one of these:

Or just buy one yourself.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Fitness

A dip belt for up to about 40lbs for chins can be made out of a $5 home depot 2" wide made-in-china tool belt. It doesn't have to be tight at all. When you add some weight to a very loose belt with a rope or whatever, the belt just naturally stays on your hips very comfortably. For more weight this belt is good and cheap at only $25.

u/howiegroove · 2 pointsr/progresspics

Here are a couple products that look good and have good reviews. I have had friends use these when they go out of town for business. The deal is, you can combine the bands to get more resistance. So you would hold a red AND yellow at the same time and its much more difficult to lift. You can literally do just about every excersize with these. Squats, deadlifts, bench press, curl, back exercises, just about anything. Of course, nothing beats old fashioned iron, but this will get you going.

Other than these, try to get in cardio in some way. The best way to get in cardio in a short amount of time. HIIT is great. 20-25 minutes is the equivalent of 60 minutes of regular training.

Here is an excerpt from (which I posted the link to the article below as well...

Minutes 1-4 (Warm-Up)
Jog at about 50% effort
Minute 5 (Workout Interval 1)
Sprint 30 seconds at maximum effort Jog/Walk 30 seconds
Minute 6 (Workout Interval 2)
Sprint 30 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 30 seconds
Minute 7 (Workout Interval 3)
Sprint 30 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 30 seconds
Minute 8 (Workout Interval 4)
Sprint 30 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 30 seconds
Minutes 9-12 (Cool-Down)
Jog at about 50% effort
After every two workout sessions, one can increase the number of "workout" intervals they do each time up until about 10 total "workout" intervals. This will allow for a steady progression of fitness levels, and help one realize the full potential and results of interval training.

> While it's definitely possible to perform this training using a variety of methods like with a Stairmaster, bike, or treadmill, it's more beneficial to apply a simple unassisted running technique. Because sprinting causes a greater peak in oxygen consumption, it is most ideal for HIIT workouts.

> It's been shown that the closer one gets to their maximum oxygen intake (or VO2max) while exercising dictates how much fat will be used for energy afterward. So the use of sprints conforms best to our goal of losing adipose tissue.

> However, the option of sprinting is not always convenient for those who want to reduce the stress on their joints. For such individuals, a bike or elliptical machine may be the perfect solution. These types of machines might also want to be used once in a while just to provide a different stimulus for the body, and to prevent adaptation and plateaus. But for the most part, it's highly recommended to stick with the alternation of sprinting and jogging for HIIT.

> For those who have progressed through the previous workout that was outlined and are still seeking new challenges, the following HIIT workout might do the trick. It's certainly not easy and might be the closest to being "the best" one can do for a HIIT workout in terms of intensity.

Minutes 1-4 (Warm-Up)
Jog at about 50% effort
Minute 5 First-Half (Workout Interval 1)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 5 Last-Half (Workout Interval 2)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 6 First-Half (Workout Interval 3)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 6 Last-Half (Workout Interval 4)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 7 First-Half (Workout Interval 5)

Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 8 First-Half (Workout Interval 7)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minute 8 Last-Half (Workout Interval 8)
Sprint 20 seconds at maximum effort
Jog/Walk 10 seconds
Minutes 9-12 (Cool-Down)
Jog at about 50% effort
Using these 12 minutes as planned, for 3 times a week, will no doubt have anyone reaping the benefits of new leanness and more within 8 weeks. To help stay on track for the duration of the program it is be best to monitor heart rate during exercise in order to ensure that the desired intensity levels are reached.*

u/The_Bluest_Things · 2 pointsr/Fitness

These are what professional strong man tend to use

They are rough on your hands. Try a cotton strap for more comfort, or even one with wrist padding.

u/dameeerajman · 2 pointsr/intermittentfasting

Invest in a cheap set of fit loops and you’re good to go. Her channel has a ton of exercise variations you can do just with those bands.

u/coleesy · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Get these

Or, if you already don't, try having your hands face the opposite ways before you buy those. I personally use the straps for everything though (even rows and pulldowns)

u/cargillk · 2 pointsr/Swimming

Barbells can offer a lot of good training, but to be honest if you're interested in losing weight or improving at swimming you're really going to want to do resistance workouts. I know thats not necessarily the answer you're looking for. Barbells are great for some shoulder exercises, maybe some bicep and chest building, but not necessarily for weight loss. Take a look at getting Resistance Bands and trying a workout like this

Good luck!

u/ccecil · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Here's a couple ideas that have worked for me in the past:

  • Perform exercises which place particularly high levels of stress on the elbows on an every-other-workout basis (think preacher curls, reverse-grip anything)

  • Try sleeping with an elbow splint to keep the arm straight at night. This helps to relax the ulner nerve.

  • Try using the BandIT Therapeutic Arm Band, especially while sleeping.

    Hope some of this helps.

Yeah, you know, straps. I thought it was clear in context of hitting the gym.

Very cushioned around the wrist, and very long straps. I don't know anything about brands, but some people like less cushioning and shorter straps.

u/pm_me_ur_macros_gurl · 2 pointsr/Fitness
u/colonistpod · 2 pointsr/Fitness

if you're hanging from the chinup bar then yeah it's entirely possible for your grip to give up first. dead hangs are good for them, so it's kind of a 2 in 1 exercise. You might look around your gym and see if they have some ab straps so you can still do your leg raises after your grip gives out.

I usually do my leg raises after deadlifting so my grip is usually only good for like a single set or a set and a half anyway, so the ab strap things can help quite a bit.

u/ihaveplansthatday · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A brace for my tendonitis. The one I currently have is uncomfortable and doesn't really seem to help anything. Thank you for the contest! :)

u/winkwinkblink · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I've been using these for a while and love them. Bands range from light to extra heavy resistance.

u/oeokillertofu · 2 pointsr/ToneItUp

I just bought these!

u/CoffeePWO · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Those are straps, he asked for wraps.

Same brand, but wraps this time.

u/MagnesiumCarbonate · 2 pointsr/weightroom

I've been using these Valeo for 2.5 years no problems. They are a bit narrower than some other straps, but I haven't tried wide straps to be able to comment whether that's a negative.

WRT the accessories/prehab yeah a video would be interesting. But I think scientifically it would be more interesting to find whether there's a 'minimum effective dosage' that everyone can incorporate.

Eco Ball Chalk is the tits:

Or Harbinger straps:

90% of the people at my gym use those straps. Then again, they won't necessarily help strengthen the grip.

u/Martin_Samuelson · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I've never used them, so maybe someone else can vouch for effectiveness in using these to get around a hand injury

u/redshrek · 1 pointr/powerlifting

I use IronMind starps. They are very good quality and I have used it to pull up to 700 lbs with no problem.

u/icos211 · 1 pointr/bodybuilding



Reebok Lite TR (flat sole powerlifting shoe)


Adidas Powerlift 3 Oly/squat shoes, 0.6" heel

You can get the 2's and the originals for cheaper if you look around on the internet a little bit more.

Adidas "Adipower" Oly shoes, 0.75" heel

I've heard most people get these for closer to 80-90 dollars, but I don't know where. Wei Rui is also a good brand for heeled Oly/squat shoes and come it a fair bit cheaper, but are not available on Amazon.

As for wraps and sleeves, I've no experience with them so I can't help much.

u/vatothe0 · 1 pointr/Stronglifts5x5

I have straps that are just a loop of fabric that go around your wrist then wrap around the bar. You still get some grip work along with the assistance.

Basically these. I'd do as many without as I could then strap up.

u/horaiyo · 1 pointr/weightroom

If/when my crappy Harbinger ones break I'll probably buy these.

u/Nihilii · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

I don't think 2-3 months will hurt you if you had balanced training up to this point, but it is a pretty long time. Maybe check out lifting hook straps - something like this

I haven't used them but some people at my gym do, and it seems like it would take most of the pressure of your hand.

And I'm sure you can find cheaper ones to try them out, these are just the first that I got on my search.

u/azndinho · 1 pointr/Fitness

I just bought a pair of these and they’ve been doing the job:

Harbinger 21501 Heavy Cotton Lifting Straps (Pair)

u/T-Flexercise · 1 pointr/xxfitness

You should definitely see a doctor or a physical therapist, because they might be more help for your specific grip issue. But in the meantime, buy some straps!

Youtube videos will probably be better than a description, but you basically just wear the straps around your wrist at one end, and then loop them around the weight a few times before you grab it. That way, the weight is basically hanging off the wrist, and requires only a very little strength to keep the strap from unravelling. They take grip strength almost entirely out of the equation.

I'd recommend against using them for everything all the time because it will cause you to stop working on your grip strength, but a great way to do it is to lift with normal grip until your grip starts to fail (or you start to feel numbness or pain), then put on the straps and lift more weight without working your grip! It can keep you making progress in the gym without feeling like your grip is holding you back.

u/thriftyfetus · 1 pointr/xxfitness

My boyfriend has these that I borrow sometimes. My wrists are almost 5.5" at the widest point and these work fine, though I'd look for a women's version if your wrists are any smaller than mine as the size of the neoprene padding will prevent the straps from tightening.

u/RCDrift · 1 pointr/Fitness

Get some lifting straps like these . You deadlift not to improve your grip, but to work out your whole body. I've heard all sorts of arguements about using straps to lift. To me their a moot point because I was born with middle arthritis in my hands.

u/fresh_kicks · 1 pointr/Fitness

A kid at my school has these, similar. He's able to do most stuff with em, I wonder how you bench tho, clasp or something?

u/pacman_johns · 1 pointr/Fitness

sounds like you could use some lifting straps for the snatches/overhead squats. i have these and they're awesome. i never do front squats without them (that's the main lift that always destroys my wrists). they really do a great job at relieving all of the pressure i normally feel on my wrists. and the blue is a nice color, so you get some style points, as well

u/darkcloud5554 · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

If you dont mind spending a few dollars forearm straps would make you be able to do the hanging leg raises, and I'm sure some other stuff I cant think of. If you dont mind answering do you know what you did/what happned to cause all these injuries?

u/Bullwinkle1983 · 1 pointr/Fitness

Just use everything that came with it. If you're looking to leg raises as well, you could pair it with some arm straps.

u/destinybond · 1 pointr/Fitness
u/justmckeevs · 1 pointr/strength_training

Have you tried straps? I'm talking about these. They really do make a difference, despite upper body strength!

u/earlypooch · 1 pointr/Fitness

Get some lifting straps to help with the later reps/sets when your grip starts failing. They work great. But don't rely on them too much.

u/LiveAndLetLift · 1 pointr/Fitness

Machines might be your best bet. And this is where the Smith machine can actually come in handy. But like I said, if it's worth the small investment to you then some kind of hooks should allow you to do barbell deadlifts and other pulling movements Harbinger Lifting Hooks

u/II------II · 1 pointr/Fitness

Something Like this from amazon:


Or something else?

Thanks for the suggestion. This could possibly provide the captain hook method to do pulling exercises.

u/corezero · 1 pointr/weightroom

Wraps or straps? I got the elitefts normal wrist wraps in 80cm.

I also have some cheapo Harbinger straps, but those are different.

u/Metcarfre · 1 pointr/weightroom

Haha, no worries. I use these, they're fine. The plain cotton ones might be even better from a durability standpoint.

u/Aedan382 · 1 pointr/Fitness

if you HAVE to use straps, there are a brand that are padded, and they do not unduly chafe my wrists. I only use them on high rep, snatch grip deads.

u/christmas_sweater · 1 pointr/bodyweightfitness

First of all, this is extremely common. Welcome to the club! I first got tendonitis after about 8 years of regular strength training. It's just not a problem that you can resolve through exercise/getting stronger. Like a muscle, you damage your tendons through wear and tear. However, they generally receive less blood flow than muscles and heal slower as a result. This allows them to worsen over time until you develop tendonitis. Recovery is usually easy, but it's a pain in the ass if you love to work out. I sympathize with you there. All you can do is RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). That's probably a good order for importance. Rest is absolutely necessary and the other three will aid and speed the recovery process. In addition, anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen will help.

This compression band has worked well for me. I recommend wearing that band (or any band) when you resume training, at least for a little while.

If the condition does not start to heal, please do take cblupo's advice and see a doctor.

u/onceamennonite · 1 pointr/Bowling

If you do try to "play through" the pain, it's a good idea to wear a forearm brace to protect the tendon. This is the type I use. I had a pretty severe case of tennis elbow that forced me to bowl left-handed for a year and am mostly recovered now. With the brace on while bowling, I'm confident that I'm not about to hurt it again.

Have you fixed your 10-pin shooting, do you think? When the cause of the tendonitis goes away, the pain will probably go away too -- but sometimes that happens maddeningly slowly.

I have golfers elbow from hockey injury for a past 1.5 years. I recommend this brace;amp;sr=8-1&amp;amp;pi=AC_SY200_QL40

It will provide great support, but do not wear it all the time it will cause muscle atrophy.

Make sure to do stretching and exercises, use brace when needed.

u/Frank_Caswole · 1 pointr/bodybuilding

Fyi These are the ones I picked up

If your wrists are smaller than 7", I would go with something else. The pad hits itself wrapping around my wrist when I use them. You have to use them to understand. Ones without pads should fit anyone.

u/Thibpyl · 1 pointr/Fitness
u/Radfad2000 · 1 pointr/Velo

Here it goes. I use [these] (;amp;redirect=true&amp;amp;ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00) for the calm shell exercises and variations. The black one is money, but I dont know how strong you are. The green band works the best as it is really the only band which I can wrap my foot around. Its strong. Basically, what I do is wrap my standing leg around one of the band and I attach the other side of the band to something sturdy(at my house its a pole on the stairs) and then I do this I do both sides and I stay on my standing leg for as long as possible. I move around a big only to play with my ankle flexibility and to make sure my hips are sqaure and my back is flat. I will lean forward and back a bit to play with balance. But the goal is to feel it in your ass of your standing leg. Trust me, you will feel it in your glute. Once you get strong you can play around with pulling in your extended leg with the band to work on core strength and hamstring strength, you can also try standing splits by placing your hands on the floor and working on your hamstrings and core strength. I would also look at warrior 3/airplane yoga poses to understand alignment and how you want your body reacting in the pose, half moon and revolved half moon are also variations you can play around with once you can maintain balance. When you get really strong look into belgian squats. This will blow the glute and really work the legs and core.

u/thinklewis · 1 pointr/Fitness

Having lots of issues with this as well. I am pretty sure my problem is poor ergonomics at work (bad keyboard/mouse position) as well as softball season. Hoping to alleviate this by getting a trackball and positioning it and keyboard better.

And yes working out with this is a pain. I have issues with pull upos, squats, bench and others when I am having my pain. I just got one of these which seems to help during a workout a bit, but its a bandaid not a problem solver.

u/corybomb · 1 pointr/Fitness

You know, I have never attempted either exercise. I will definitely try the Zercher squat, that looks perfect for my circumstances, and for deadlifts I think I am going to buy some straps like for the time being.

Thanks for the advice!
