Wrapping my hands after press ups is really an issue, things are pretty fast paced in our training, from warming up to getting gloves on fast etc.
I will see how they are when I first get them, then if I need to I can made do them a bit looser and then tighten them up quickly before putting my gloves on.
Anyone on here used these hand warps before?
I recently got the black ones from this shop "B2Fitness" but on Ebay.
I must say I was expecting something better. Or maybe I have just been unlucky. I'm right now waiting to receive my third pair since the first two have not been anything like the description.
Problems I had with them:
They are nowhere close to 180" (4,5 m). They are more 160" (4 m).
The wraps, from the same pair, aren't the same length (One was 4,12 m the other 4,36 m. This you will notice while wearing them).
The stitches around the Velcro are coming off, and I haven't even started using them.
They smell like something from an old garage/shed. Needs washing ASAP!
They don't come with that handy see through bag shown on the picture (which can be helpful to hold your wraps if you would role them with the Velcro on the inside).
I've been in touch with the company several times and they explain the length issue by stating that it says " ...'approximately' 4,5 meter..." in their description. I replied by saying most people interpret "approximately" as ± 5-10 cm and not 45 cm that has been in my case.
In their last reply they "guaranteed" the length problem won't happen again. The previous wraps were from an old batch and the new ones are measured better. Lets hope they get it right the third time. I have little hope...
Good luck with yours and keep us posted!
Ps. It usually takes around a week to get them to Amsterdam.
