If I want a tighter fit is it OK to order a smaller size than what the size chart suggests?
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.
What length of wrist wrap would be best for me?
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.
How do I know if the product fits correctly?
Our products are designed to fit each person snug and with enough compression or tightness to provide ample amounts of support.
- Wrist and knee wraps can be adjusted according to the lifters desire
- 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
My cuffs are very tight, how do I know if they are too tight?
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.
How do I wash my items?
We recommend hand washing with cold water and a mild soap and then air drying.
