Wrist straps can help you lift heavier weights. Here’s how to use them
Put your hand through the loop, ensuring the end lies between your thumb and forefinger, and fasten it so the strap is snug around your wrist. STEP 2
Put your hand over the bar with your palms facing down, keeping the strap end on the side nearest you. STEP 3
Using your other hand, wrap the strap around the part of the bar you will be holding. To tighten it, twist the bar towards you as if you were revving a motorbike. STEP 4
Secure the strap in place by gripping the bar and strap together. Twist your hand to tighten it. Letting go of the bar will also release the straps.
