Love these grips!, January 3, 2013
Grip Power Pads are well constructed and easy to adjust to. I use these during my shoulder workouts. They are great! I found an old pair of grips and wanted to go with the pro ones that others at the gym use. These are better manufactured than the ones I found. When you hold them positioned as in the picture, though, they do run a bit long. I enjoy using these for all dumbbell workouts. I haven’t gained the confidence to use these for barbell workouts yet, though. For the Bench Press, I still prefer my gloves. I use them in conjunction with wrist wraps. In particular, the ones from Amazon or the Everlasting boxing speed wraps. Two things that I would love to see them fix are 1) for anal peeps that like only using one side – have a little mark or something that we can tell which side we use on the weights. Some guys at my gym are friggin dirty and I don’t like having to keep track of which side I use on my palm and which side I use on the weights. The other thing would be to 2) figure out how to use them without dropping them while lifting extremely heavy weights. When I’m doing 70lbs pound dumbbell military presses, I tend to drop them with the weights. Other than that, I would totally recommend these to everyone. Plus way more affordable than at your local nutrition shop. Thanks, Grip Power!
