I’m new to squatting in wraps, I bought a 2.5m pair of the red Slingshot wraps and signed up for a WPC-affiliated meet in April. I later noticed that on the WPC site there is an announcement that 3m wraps are allowed as of last October, although last I checked the rulebook wasn’t updated and the site for the Canadian affiliate was only updated after I contacted some officials to ask about this.
Anyway, my question is how much difference is there between squatting in 2.5m and 3m wraps? I’m still not 100% with depth in wraps (although WPC isn’t too strict either) and some of my squats have looked about borderline or slightly high, but I have over 3 months to sort that out. I would say I’m getting around 30lbs out of the wraps, and I haven’t been wrapping them incredibly tight either. How much more carryover could I expect to get out of a 3m pair vs. wrapping the 2.5m’s tighter? Is it much harder to hit depth with 3m wraps? If it makes any difference, I’m going to be wrapping my own knees at the meet. I train alone and have nobody competent that I can rely on.
