Which Type of Hand Straps?


My trusty old hand strap broke today. I don't have good ones to replace them.
I have got some thick leather Eleikos straps which are crap, they are only good for light weights. I had thin Eleiko straps which were very good , also for the Olympic lifts (snatch pulls). The thick leather Eleikos were rubbish for Rack pull/shrugs.

Which straps/type of straps do you guys use for shrugs/snatch pulls etc?


Ironmind sew easy straps for me


I like my Spud straps


my hands


I found some shorter straps I bought. They are not bad , I managed 280kg rack pull with them. I felt I could have got more with better straps. I suppose a bad workman blames his tools.
