3 Must-Have CrossFit Hand Protection Tools

Posted by Coach Jerry Lamigo on

Our hands our the most used tool / body part in Functional Fitness, CrossFit workouts. We grab a barbell, dumbbell, pull up bar, wall ball, jump rope, handstand, and so much more.

Without proper hand protection, we'd be ripping and shredding our hands faster, unable to make our fitness gains.

Which is why it's SO IMPORTANT to get yourself some proper hand protection.

Hand grips provide an extra layer of protection necessary to grip it and NOT rip it. Taping your thumbs during weightlifting sessions can also mean the difference between setting a new PR and a failed lift.

Don't worry, we've got you! At WODshop, we're always seeking the BEST gear to help you take your fitness to the next level....
