FASTER SETUP - With practice, these lifting straps only take seconds to set up. Just feed the hanging end around the bar, give it a twist to tighten, and you’re ready to go. Need to bail from the bar in a hurry? Just release your grip as normal and you’re unattached.
SUPPLEMENTS GRIP, DOESN’T DO THE WORK FOR YOU - Helps build better grip strength versus wraps/hooks that could be considered “overly supportive”. Due to the shorter length, a firm grip must be applied to the barbell to create the friction necessary, similar to a hook grip. Don’t expect to hold onto very heavy weights without effort using these straps!
LEATHER GRIP - Lasts longer than cotton, less slippery than nylon. We thought long and hard when choosing the material of the wrap and decided on a 3MM thick, tough leather. This material breaks in and softens over time, grips well, and is stronger than the cotton materials used in other wraps.
WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION - Distributes weight over the hand rather than tightening around the wrist. Doesn’t cinch and tighten around the wrists. Right and left specific lifting straps allows even bar wrapping.
5 STAR EXPERIENCE GUARANTEE - We're confident you'll absolutely love our Twist Grip lifting straps - or any of our other products! If somehow you aren't 100% satisfied, just contact us!

Complete Buying Guide to Lifting Straps
What are Lifting Straps For?
Lifting straps serve many purposes. Here are a few:
They can save your hands. You can use straps for warm-up before a competition so your hands are fresh for the competition. In other words – your grip is not worn out before you start competing.
Straps help you lift more when grip is your limiting factor. If your muscles can handle the weight, but it is your grip that is giving out – straps can handle the added weight and assist your grip, while allowing you to work and strengthen the intended target muscles.
Straps can help you lift through an injury or prevent injury. Many lifters, especially as the weight gets really heavy, open themselves up to joint injury, especially in the wrist and forearm. Straps can ease the pressure.
How do I Choose Lifting Straps?
There are basically three common styles and three common materials used for lifting straps and I will go over each and list the pros and cons of each.
Usually less expensive than cotton or leather.
Easily stronger than cotton or leather.
Lasts longer, can withstand more abuse.
Not as grippy as cotton or leather.
Can dig into wrists.
Not as durable as nylon – you need to replace them more often.
Excellent grip – even on bars with no knurl.
Softer on the wrists.
Not as durable as nylon – will fail faster.
There are three common designs when it comes to lifting straps.
The lasso style is the most common out there. It is one long strap threaded into a sewn loop at one end to create a loop that goes around your wrist.
Your wrist goes into the loop and the tail wraps around the bar.
The benefit of this strap is the ability to adjust the size of the wrist opening and get a snug fit.
The figure 8 loop is specifically for deadlifting. It is a figure 8, sewn in the center. The loops go around your wrist, and the sewn section goes over the bar.
This style should only be used for deadlifts, because you cannot quickly ditch or fail it, since your arms are attached to the bar with the strap.
Teardrop, speed strap or single loop
This style is a loop, sewn together at the ends, resembling a teardrop. It is called a speed strap because it is very fast to set up.
This type is not as secure around the bar as other styles, but it has the huge benefit of releasing quickly should you fail the lift.
Weightlifting Straps FAQs
Do Straps Increase Deadlift?
Yes – if the grip is holding you back from lifting more on your deadlift. Lifting straps will help you gain size and strength, leading to gains. If you cannot finish your deadlift set because your grip is dead, consider picking up a pair of lifting straps.
As long as you are striking a balance by improving your grip and doing grip training exercises, there is no problem using lifting straps.
Should I Use Lifting Straps for Squat Cleans or Power Cleans?
Squat cleans, certainly not. Power cleans, probably not.
Because when you use straps, it is harder to get away from the bar in the event of a failure and it can be dangerous. You can break a wrist if you fail – or go down with the bar, or the bar can go down on you, or you can slam your elbows into the platform, either way – painful and dangerous.
Speaking of power cleans, notice how Oleksiy Torokhtiy is wearing a good pair of lifting shoes in this power clean demo video.
A good pair of shoes, dedicated and designed for lifting can also improve your form and performance. I have reviewed the top lifting shoes here, check it out.
Should I Use Lifting Straps? Do Lifting Straps Help?
It depends. There is a time and place for lifting straps, and when applied judiciously, they are a great weight lifting tool, but if overused they cause reliance and don’t allow you to strengthen your grip.
See this video for more.
How do You Wear Wrist Straps for Lifting? How to Use Lifting Straps?
How you wear the lifting strap depends entirely on the style of strap you are using and the particular lift you are attempting.
Seriously, it would take an entire article to explain all the different variants.
How about you check out this video where BarBend shows you the most common ways to use the lifting strap.
If you want specifics on how to use the most popular style lifting strap, the lasso style, Brian Shaw, three-time Strongman winner, gets into detail on the how’s and techniques of using the lasso style strap properly.
Check out his video.
Are Leather Lifting Straps Good?
It depends on what you value. If you value excellent grip and a strap that does not eat into your wrists, leather might be the choice for you.
But if you use a heavily knurled bar and don’t want to buy new straps every 6 months, maybe nylon is a better choice for you.
Simply put – leather straps are good if you know their benefits and limitations.
Are Lifting Straps Allowed in Powerlifting?
Lifting straps are not allowed in powerlifting competitions. That is an important distinction because powerlifters still stand to gain from using lifting straps.
Powerlifters can use straps for training, warm-up, and even to strengthen target muscles before competition day – just like any other style of lifting.
Straps vs Wraps vs Hooks – What is the Difference?
A weightlifting strap is used to increase grip strength. It is wrapped around your wrist and the bar, and bears some of the weight on your wrist, giving your grip a bit of a break.
A hook takes on all the weight of the bar, and puts the weight on your wrist instead of your grip. If you want to see an example of great weightlifting hooks, I reviewed the best weight lifting hooks here.
Beware: Straps are superior because they allow you to drop the bar if needed.
Not so with hooks which are harder to detach from the bar in the event of a failure.
Of course, the downside to straps is that they still require considerable grip strength to use – but you should be working on your grip strength anyways, so I recommend straps over hooks.
So what are wraps?
Wraps sometimes get confused with straps, but the two are quite different and serve a separate purpose. Wraps support the wrist and have nothing to do with your grip.
A wrist wrap stabilizes the wrist and prevents it from moving backward in the event of say, like a bench press or similar exercise.
