The size chart is designed to maximize the performance, compression and longevity of the product. Follow the size chart to ensure proper fit without compromising support.
Deciding which wrist wrap to get can be challenging. We recommend the 20” POWER Wrap for accessory work or those who desire a shorter wrap. The 36” Gangsta Wrap works great under heavy strain, but also works well with lighter weights. It mainly comes down to personal preference on how much material you want on your wrist.
Our products are designed to fit each person snug and with enough compression or tightness to provide ample amounts of support.
Compression Cuffs, STrong Elbow and Knee Sleeves should be on tight enough to limit pain and provide ample support without causing immediate numbness
Sling Shots should be snug around the elbow and bicep, not falling off when arms are down
Hip Circles should be secure enough around your legs, above your knees, when you’re standing shoulder width apart
Compression Cuffs must be tight enough to where elbow pain is limited and support is provided. Personal preferences on compression could cause the lifter to remove Compression Cuffs between sets.
We recommend hand washing with cold water and a mild soap and then air drying. Use water superficially on the product do not fully submerge the items as this can cause your sleeves to deteriorate faster.
We do not recommend washing them in a machine. Detergent and hot water can break down the neoprene and cause your sleeves to deteriorate faster.
