Enhance lifting technique
Average connection time 25 secs
Myprotein Figure 8 Straps are a fantastic training accessory to help enhance lifting technique and reduce premature grip fatigue.
These heavy duty cotton straps are the ideal replacement for the traditional lifting straps which are known for their impractical and uncomfortable design.
The Myprotein Figure 8 Straps are designed to loop over the lifting bar whilst your wrist is secured through both hoops. This creates a grip which can be used for both over hand and under hand lifting techniques to provide a secure grip on any size bar.
Unlike traditional lifting straps, figure 8 straps can be adjusted at any stage during your lift without having to unwind straps. For added comfort and support, each strap is constructed with padded foam sections to protect your wrists.
Please note that the labelling on this product is provided in English as a minimum. French, Italian, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish and Finnish may also be present on a product by product basis.
Place wrist through one of the loops and pass the second loop underneath the bar. Feed your wrist through the second loop, securing the bar in place. Grip the bar and the strap securely before performing your lift.
For more specific direction we recommend seeking the advice of a fitness expert.

They work and help take the strain, however are slightly bulky when trying to grip over them to hold the bar
Great straps! Slightly large however but twisting them before wrapping them round the bar seems to help
Ordered these figure 8s and was very pleased with the quality of them, especially for the great price. Very happy customer.
Absolutely fantastically simple piece of kit, could not lift more than 140 kg on dead lifts because of grip fatigue and then went to 170 kg in 2 sessions! I use them for all my dead lifts now and can't wait to see what I'm really capable of. What's also nice is that I don't need to over under grip any more
These straps are too big!. I have large wrists and have used the Eddie Hall ones and they are a far more useable product. I guess you can't get it right all the time!
Only used these a couple of times so far but quite happy with them. Take a bit of getting used to and don't fasten as tightly as traditional straps, don't know if part of that is because I only have small wrists. Good addition to the gym bag though for the price and gives me another option as well as my old faithful straps that I've had for 20 years and my powergrips
These are phenomenal, exactly what I needed! I was struggling to do more than two reps at 160kg deadlifting, but with these I've just smashed three sets of six reps at 160kg! Buy these, they are brilliant and pave the way for an Eddie Hall 500kg deadlift (we can all dream!)
After surgery for replacement knuckles, I am unable to lift heavy weights. Just purchased some figure 8 straps, and can now pull 80 it with ease. Must highly recommend this training aid.
Figure 8 straps are what I swear by as I am aware of my raw grip strength than normal wraps giving me the misconception of my grip limits.
Works great. Been using the old style straps for years but these simply work better. There is abit of initial movement as the straps take up the tension, but once locked they stay locked, with very little discomfort in the wrists due to double padded wrap, rather than a single one for old style straps. And it's nice to actually hold the bar directly rather than holding the strap wrapped around the bar. These Fig8 straps so far have no slip, no issues with taking 200KG+ deadlifts.
