As gymnasts advance through their levels and begin competing, some equipment may become necessary to acquire as their skills advance. With so much weight supported and held by our hands it becomes a strenuous task to say the least. Gymnastics grips are useful for weight support, hand protection, and, due to certain mechanics, a firm grasp.
This equipment is specifically constructed to prevent friction injuries. They are designed with velcro or buckles that securely wrap around the wrist, a leather strap which reduces exposure to the hand, and finger holes for necessary grasp.
But before you jump into buying a pair of gymnastics hand guards, you’ll need to know which kind are the best gymnastics grips for you or your children.
