Product Overview

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.

Key Benefits

  • Enhance lifting technique
  • Can be adjusted at any stage during your lift
  • Padded foam to protect wrists

Suggested Use

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.

Not sure what other reviewers see in them!

Disappointed hugely with these, the loops are FAR too big, and unadjustable, therefore making them almost useless, the loops are that big it almost makes your hand slide right out of them, I tried them whilst doing deads and shrugs and still find that the normal wrist wraps (the ones you have to keep twisting to make tighter) FAR better, wouldn't advise these at all.

Quick and effective

Overall:

5

Bought these as an experiment when my old conventional style straps were starting to wear. I was very sceptical how these could work effectively but I was pleasantly surprised. They are quicker to use than the old style wraparounds (more reason to hit those heavy drop sets) and offer as much grip and support during the lift as well. Easy to use, just slam them round a bar, and 'wind them up' (you'll know what I mean if you use them) and fire away. Plus, Eddie Hall broke a dead lift world record with them, so all the cool kids are using 'em now. Good value, would recommend for powerful back sessions.

An obscenely large weight and a lot of masculine grunting

I had big expectations, however figure 8 links are too wide, and cannot get enough grip. Will stick with usual straps

Figure 8 straps

Overall:

5

Don't be deterred by its bad taste and poor mixability. The figure of 8 straps do exactly want there Ment too. If your grip gives up at the start of a back exercise whilst your doing some shrugs, how can you do bent over rows or deadlift without them? Thats rhetorical... The figure of 8 design makes them quick and easy to use, also it would take a lot to snap them.

Couldn't get on with regular straps. These were so easy to put on the bar, give a solid hold and added 10kg to my deadlift PB. Wont use them all the time but great for heavier lifts or when your hands are fatigued but you still have more to lift. Worked really nicely for one arm rows too. Strong, comfortable, well made, wish I'd found them ages ago.

Fig 8 dead lift straps

Overall:

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!

Figure 8 lifting straps

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.

Overall:

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.

Feel too big

Straps are of good quality but feel big for a standard barbell even with average size hands and wrists. I reverted back to my old conventional straps but thought these would be quicker and more suited on competition days.

Good bit of kit.

Overall:

These do the job, they are easier to use than traditional straps and get on and off etc. However, you can't really get them as tight or as firmer grip. Still, you can keep hold of the bar and train the parts you're trying to when you are tired without worrying about grip.

Goes Well With:

Training hard.

A better the normal lifting straps. Smash a new PB shrubs with dumbbells with them

Improved lifting!

Overall:

I wanted to try some straps after my grip started slipping with heavier deadlifts. This was especially important after moving house and having to workout on tiled floors. Dropping 90kg on the floor might have lead to divorce! I was amazed how much difference the straps made, I feel like I can go heavier and no fear of dropping damage. Highly recommended.
