Why do gymnasts wear grips?
Grips are used to enhance the gymnast’s grip on the apparatus and to reduce friction, which can cause painful blisters and rips, in which outer layers of skin separate and tear away from the hand. Grips are optional and are not used by all gymnasts.
How often should you replace gymnastics grips?
For small, casual gymnasts who are just starting out, you might get well over a year from a pair. Elite gymnasts, such as the girls we support, sometimes get only a run of weeks out of them (due to their training hours and power). It’s also worth noting that as a gymnast grows, their grips stretch with them.
Are Velcro or buckle grips better?
Velcro grips are faster to fasten and to take off. They are good for those gymnasts who are new to wearing grips. Buckle grips come in either single or double buckle fastenings. There isn’t really a big difference between the two choices but double buckles have an added benefit when your grips get older
Do gymnastics grips prevent rips?
Grips: Grips are used in gymnastics to help grasp the bar but they do help in preventing rips. Even in grips, rips will still happen. The leather in the grips helps by putting more of the friction on the grip rather than the hand itself.
How should hand grips fit?
When you put the grips on, the strap around your wrist should be tight. Not “cut off circulation” tight, but they should stay in place (maybe with some exception depending on the workout but that’s for another time) and not be able to spin around your wrist.
