Why Use Gymnastics Grips?
While CrossFit has recently popularized gymnastics grips, they have been around for decades. Gymnasts use dowel grips in both training and competition. This prevents blisters on a gymnast's hands when they flip and turn over bars.
We use grips to protect our hands. While hanging from a gymnastics bar or ring might develop calluses, spinning around them while kipping or doing muscle-ups can cause skin tears. Grips protect your hands from abrasion. Even with grips, you can still tear. But they reduce the chances.
Increased Grip Strength
Many high-quality gymnastics grips are designed to improve your grip on the bar. Grip fatigue can limit how long you can hold onto a bar. The grip's wrist strap should relieve some of the strain on your hand muscles.
Then there's the comfort of knowing that other individuals, possibly strangers, have been sweating, ripping, or bleeding. A grip is not meant to substitute sanitizing and hand washing. But if it makes you feel better, rock on.
What to Look for in Gymnastics Grips for CrossFit
When looking at gymnastics equipment grips, you should consider the following:
Construction and finger holes
Many high-quality gymnastic grips are designed to improve your hold on the bar. The grip's wrist strap should relieve some of the strain on your hand muscles. The grips' performance is heavily influenced by the company's materials and workmanship. We suggest a three-finger grip over two finger holes.
The best materials for heavy volume workouts were leather and nylon. Our runner-up uses carbon fiber. Victory Grips Stealth Grips, which we also like, feature an ultra-light synthetic microfiber. Genuine leather is very comfortable, but it is difficult to clean. Other materials, such as silicone, are available, but we prefer the materials listed above.
Gymnastic grips are not meant to last. Most people should change their grips at least once a year, and ideally every six months. It is possible to buy "disposable" gymnastic grips, but their lifespan is too short.
Although gymnastic grips have a short lifespan, they should last at least 6 months, and if not, the company should have procedures in place to fix the problem.
The price of the gymnastic grips should be in line with the quality and features provided by the grips. Value is crucial, but in our search for the best gymnastic grips for CrossFit, it was secondary to our other criteria. We discovered that the ones we loved best ranged in price from $20 to $50 for the pair.
