There are no scarcities of attachments for Cross Fit runners today. Straps, wraps, lifting shoe, sleeves, knee, and belts are some of the familiar pieces of gadgets you will find on any active fitness athlete. According to me, wrist wrap is one of the most overused garrets of support gear. And the work of the wrist wrap is to give some support to joints of the wrist when a sports person is experiencing some heavy pressing from lifting an overweight object. In this process, the wrist can be dragged into an extension under results and load with a compromised injury, and mechanical lifts. The wrist is very important to an athlete or any other sports person, but I have realized that we do not correctly use the piece. Here are some few tips to help you and your friend get the best out of your training.
Warm up Without the Wraps
It is not wise to wear the wrist wraps when doing press up. I usually recommend that my team wear the kits only on the training that involve lifting of loads. You need less energy to lift your body weight during a warm-up most the power comes from your hands, and no harm is caused to the joints in the wrist. And we can only use this garret when we are dealing with something that can cause pressing of the wrist joint. Make sure that you do not use the wrist in any training to avoid over dependence. Becoming addicted to wraps a whole your exercise can limit the strength development of your extensors and flex ors.
Avoid Tying the Wrist Wraps too Low
Before even you think of using the wraps, first you should keep in mind that it is supposed to give some support to the wrist joints. Make sure the wrist wrap is in the right place for perfect results and enough creation of support and prevent excess joint extension. If you wrap the blanket below your wrist, then I can assure that the work of the wrap has just turned into a forearm bracelet that will only act as a bracelet but no support. For a perfect wearing, you can take your time and search online on the best and right way of wearing a wrap. Meanwhile, make sure that the cloth covers the wrist joint for a maximum functioning.
Always use the Right Type of Wrap
Before you go out to buy the wrist wrap, it’s better than you know we have two types and the two types perform different functions. The Velcro and Strength wraps. The Velcro typically very thick and is used to provide support to wrist joints (our case). The strength wraps are thick also but used to cover ankles from getting injuries if the runner falls. I, therefore, recommend when lifting loads use the recommended brand and when other practices use the strength wraps.
