What type of grips should I get for gymnastics?
Most competitive gymnasts wear gymnastics grips. There are two kinds of grips for women: dowel grips and non-dowel grips. Dowel grips are used by competitive gymnasts doing high level circling elements like giants. The dowel is a rod near the gymnast’s fingers that helps her get a better grip on the bar.
When should you get gymnastics grips?
