Why Use Weight Lifting Straps at Dragon’s Lair Gym?

Lifting straps become your ally in overcoming these challenges, providing crucial support for exercises such as:
- Dumbbell or barbell rows
- Romanian deadlifts
- Rack pulls
Mastering the Steps: How to Use Lifting Straps
- Thread and Secure:
- Thread the ends of the straps through the loops.
- Slide your hands through the circles or attach the straps with hook-and-loop fasteners so the ends hang down along your fingers.
- Wrap and Grip:
- Wrap the ends of the strap around the bar (or bars) holding the weight.
- Place your hands over the straps, closing your palm and fingers over the area where the straps are wrapped around the barbell.
- Roll for Tightness:
- Roll the bar toward you to tighten the strap.
- Ensure the straps are tight before starting the lift.
These steps ensure that the lifting straps provide optimal support and grip during your workout, allowing you to focus on the exercise itself.
