How to Use
Power Grabs are designed to be used for both Pulling and Pushing exercises and are rated a superior gripping aid product when compared to any other types of lifting straps or gripping products. Anti - slip engineered materials are used in Power Grab designs to enhance and secure the gripping function.
As shown in the Pulling Image and Demonstration Video on this page,the palm grip is wrapped back or reversed around the bar so that the grip is positioned in between the hand and the bar, handle, or piece of equipment being used. In this manner the grip maintains a secure, non slip, and tight grip when used in combination with the hand positioned on whatever equipment is being used.
Pull Exercises where Power Grabs are used in training with free weights or machines:
- Back exercises: wide or narrow grip lat pulldowns, close grip rows of any type including seated rows, one arm rows with dumbbells, T Bar rows, deadlifts, chin ups
- Shoulder and trap exercises: shoulder shrugs with dumbbells or a barbell, front, side and rear delt exercises, upright rows of any kind
- Arm exercises: dumbbell or barbell curls, preacher curls, reverse grip tricep extensions
- Other exercises using free weights, machines or any type of selectorized equipment pulling the weight towards you or to the side
As shown in the Pushing image and video, the palm grip is wrapped forward around the bar so that the grip is positioned in between the hand and the equipment being used to train with. In this manner, the palm grip maintains a secure, non slip, and tight grip when used in combination with the hand positioned on whatever equipment is being used. Power Grabs are used in training the following Push Exercises: barbell and dumbbell presses to work the chest and shoulders, and tricep extensions.
With either Pulling or Pushing exercises, power grabs also protect the palms and fingers from developing those painful calluses that often occur when training with smooth or knurled bars, and handles and other equipment where the hands come in direct contact with the metal handles of the equipment being used.
Power Grabs design also includes a fully functioning padded wrist support that is size adjustable to fit the wrist, using a cinch ring and Velcro hook and loop closure that ensures the most comfortable, secure and solid fit around the wrist.
