Lifting straps figure 8 or WOW

Postby Zak » Sun Mar 06, 2016 2:19 pm

Wanting to get a new set of straps, never used figure 8, or WOW. Wondering which would be the best all around (axel, car, Olympic bar)

It really is personal preference

I personally prefer WOW straps but sell figure 8s probably 20 - 1 compared to WOW so they are most people's favorite

So I went with the figure 8 straps. I bought the larger size to accommodate an axel. This works well if you plan on using just an axel. I have kinda small wrists so trying to use the larger size on a barbell left them kinda loose.

You can put them to the side and they work OK but yea the regular size works better for me as well

I twisted them twice before putting my hand through and that tightened them up enough I could open my hand on the barbell and the straps held the weight to my wrists.

Do they no longer make the giants figure 8? I wanted to get them after seeing your review, but I can't find them. I'm a little guy so I'd need the smaller ones.

Giants went out of business but we still sell Cerberus figure 8's which are just as good if not better and come in 4 sizes not just two
