Aster Wrist Wraps Reviews
By: Aster Athletic
IntroductionI had recently just bought some new wrist wraps, but I went to a new gym and somebody jacked them when I sat then in the cubicle after my workout. Literally the next day these came up for review luckily so i grabbed then.
DesignThese are made of a very sturdy material, some slight flex to them, but plenty of backbone to offer support. A nice bright red color if the appearance matters to you it's visually appealing. The thumb loop is sewn across the end unlike most of the ones I've used in the past but this didn't seem to make A Difference. At 1st I didn't think this sew job would hold up very well as it looked cheaply done but I was pleasantly surprised.
UsageMy wrists have been a problem area for me lately when going even the slightest bit heavy. I used these while doing any kind of pressing movements, preacher curls, and any triceps push down variations.
EffectivenessMy most recent pair of wrist wraps before these were very stretchy I could wrap them tight and they would offer support but I would have to continuously adjust them between sets to keep the circulation in my hands.
With these I could wrap them tight but they were thick enough that they would offer the backed support without cutting into my hands and making them go numb. They are quite long so you get a couple good wraps for extra support. While benching with these I could tell a huge difference in the weight I was able to comfortably lift while keeping my wrists straight.
