4 Reasons Why You Must Wear Wristband While Lifting Weights(2023)


1. To avoid injuries
Wristbands and wrist wraps provide proper support to your wrist joints. Due to this jerk and sprain don’t damage the bone and the muscle tissues. In fact, a study published in the journal Hindawi also suggests that if someone has issues with their bone density then wearing a wristband while exercising or playing sports is a must for them.

2. For better grip
When your wrist bone and muscles get proper support from the wristband, you tend to have a better grip on barbells and dumb bells. A study published in a journal called Trauma Monthly ratifies it too.

Have better grip on those dumb-bells. 

3. To reduce muscle strain
When you do crossfit or weight training your muscles bear the maximum strain. But if you use a wristband then it will not just reduce the strain on your wrist but because you have a better grip it will also lower the strain on your muscles too.

And according to a study published in the Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine, people who power lift only train with their wristbands and wraps on to avoid muscle strain.

4. To move right
Have you ever noticed the movement of your wrist while doing bicep curls? If not then please show it to your trainer or an expert and ask whether your wrist is moving fine or not. Sadly, in most of the cases, you’ll find that the movement is not right. Due to this, you end up with sore muscles and less contraction in the target muscles.
