Fuck me I'd be out of breath after wrapping with 3.0 meters.

Had a brainstorm on the grippers......ever tried wrapping with them rubber side up?  You'd still get the benefit of them gripping the layer of wrap above them but they might not tear up the skin on your knees as bad.

Might try that next time.

I had thought of that, but the rubber wasn't the main reason I opted to switch.  It was the stiffness of the material that I wasn't liking.  As my stance has been widening out, I've been looking at stiffer wraps that are Cast, instead of Rebound. 

After looking through loads of different wraps and what people preferred and the reviews on them, these came up as the best for what I want.

And... Elite FTS had a wicked sale last week.  I paid $25 and they are $46 wraps.

As for exhausted, I used to get 9 wraps with the 2.5m grippers.  I get 7 wraps with the 3m Kraits.  I can't hit bodyweight parallel with just one knee wrapped.  !!

Vids tonight.

Knee Wrapping


Ho Lee Fuq.

Grippers got nothing on these.  I realize now, why the guys that squat 1000lbs use these wraps.  With the 2.5m wraps, I could pull tight and get 10 wraps.  Painful as hell, but I could get it.  The Krait 3m wraps, barely stretch, and I only can get 8 wraps.  I now fully understand what "Cast Like" means.  I'm gonna have to sort something out as trying to wrap myself, I'm sweating from the workout.  May have to enlist BLK to wrap my knees. 

Seriously, these wraps are brutal.  The pain is no different, that the gripper, I just don't have the rubber tearing my skin apart. 

I will say, that these are not high rep wraps.  I would not want these on trying to get anything beyond 8 reps.

All things considered, They are awesome. 

After the Meet in August, I'm more than happy to wrap anyone up, if they want to test them out.

Please ignore then ladies discussing diet in the background.  In fact, watch the Vid without Volume.

Stand on one leg and I'll run around in circles wrapping them up. :jester:
