Product Overview

Myprotein Figure 8 Straps are a fantastic training accessory to help enhance lifting technique and reduce premature grip fatigue.

These heavy duty cotton straps are the ideal replacement for the traditional lifting straps which are known for their impractical and uncomfortable design.

The Myprotein Figure 8 Straps are designed to loop over the lifting bar whilst your wrist is secured through both hoops. This creates a grip which can be used for both over hand and under hand lifting techniques to provide a secure grip on any size bar.

Unlike traditional lifting straps, figure 8 straps can be adjusted at any stage during your lift without having to unwind straps. For added comfort and support, each strap is constructed with padded foam sections to protect your wrists.

Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.

Key Benefits

  • Enhance lifting technique
  • Can be adjusted at any stage during your lift
  • Padded foam to protect wrists

Suggested Use

Place wrist through one of the loops and pass the second loop underneath the bar. Feed your wrist through the second loop, securing the bar in place. Grip the bar and the strap securely before performing your lift.

For more specific direction we recommend seeking the advice of a fitness expert.

Myprotein Figure 8 Straps

Overall:

5

Works great. Been using the old style straps for years but these simply work better. There is abit of initial movement as the straps take up the tension, but once locked they stay locked, with very little discomfort in the wrists due to double padded wrap, rather than a single one for old style straps. And it's nice to actually hold the bar directly rather than holding the strap wrapped around the bar. These Fig8 straps so far have no slip, no issues with taking 200KG+ deadlifts.

Straps are of good quality but feel big for a standard barbell even with average size hands and wrists. I reverted back to my old conventional straps but thought these would be quicker and more suited on competition days.

These do the job, they are easier to use than traditional straps and get on and off etc. However, you can't really get them as tight or as firmer grip. Still, you can keep hold of the bar and train the parts you're trying to when you are tired without worrying about grip.

Disappointed hugely with these, the loops are FAR too big, and unadjustable, therefore making them almost useless, the loops are that big it almost makes your hand slide right out of them, I tried them whilst doing deads and shrugs and still find that the normal wrist wraps (the ones you have to keep twisting to make tighter) FAR better, wouldn't advise these at all.

I wanted to try some straps after my grip started slipping with heavier deadlifts. This was especially important after moving house and having to workout on tiled floors. Dropping 90kg on the floor might have lead to divorce! I was amazed how much difference the straps made, I feel like I can go heavier and no fear of dropping damage. Highly recommended.

A must have for doing heavy deadlifts and shrugs. Makes lifting the bar possible even after your grip fails completley :D Can also be used on dumbbells or for doing pullups.

Good for rope chin ups

Overall:

5

Effectiveness:

5

These are great for deadlifts and such, though for me I wear wrist sweat bands so they fit correctly. Just to let you guys know they are great for doing rope type chin ups. Just drape them over a pull up bar. The middle, stitched together part sits on top of the bar. You grab the 2 looped bits together. It's a bit difficult to explain, but when you try it you should find the padding portion of the straps sits directly below your hands so you won't slip of the bottom too easily, yet they still give you some grip work. You can also stick your hands/wrists through the loops if you want to. Allows much better shoulder rotation on chinups and better range of motion. I never do normal chin ups now.

These straps are fantastic, unlike normal straps which you normally still have to grip these allow you to take a loose grip so you can use your energy for lifting rather than gripping. There is soft padding around the wrists so the straps are really comfortable as well.

Quick and effective

Overall:

Bought these as an experiment when my old conventional style straps were starting to wear. I was very sceptical how these could work effectively but I was pleasantly surprised. They are quicker to use than the old style wraparounds (more reason to hit those heavy drop sets) and offer as much grip and support during the lift as well. Easy to use, just slam them round a bar, and 'wind them up' (you'll know what I mean if you use them) and fire away. Plus, Eddie Hall broke a dead lift world record with them, so all the cool kids are using 'em now. Good value, would recommend for powerful back sessions.

An obscenely large weight and a lot of masculine grunting

Don't be deterred by its bad taste and poor mixability. The figure of 8 straps do exactly want there Ment too. If your grip gives up at the start of a back exercise whilst your doing some shrugs, how can you do bent over rows or deadlift without them? Thats rhetorical... The figure of 8 design makes them quick and easy to use, also it would take a lot to snap them.

I've found these to be a lot quicker to place and adjust than standard straps, so reduces time between drop sets / super sets, and the ability to slide them on and off pull down bars is very useful rather than having to reset them constantly. Would recommend over standard straps unless training back with another body part, as these straps are not as easy to train other areas e.g. training back & chest.

Deads, shrugs and rows

I tried the wrist straps but never have tried any equipment like this before but they as so effective! Took two or three sessions to get used to them but they helped me dead lift at least 20kg just by wearing the straps. I'd recommend these to anyone looking to lifting a little bit extra weight with easy.
