    Versa Grips

    Thanks to Kevin (DBX) I ordered these. They came in today. Wow I must say these things feel like they are going to work extremely well

    I haven't had the time to put them through the test but just going down to my basement and wrapping it around the pole speaks high volumes. The grip is unbelievable.

    Thanks Kevin I will let you know how they do on Tuesday my back day, I might just hit 6 plates this time around!

    LOFL . Nah, no commission. I just wish I could have forwarded you guys the email frees ship coupon they sent me twice in the last 2wks. I've had mine for over 2yrs, but I guess they keep your name forever .

    I promise they will live up to the expectations I set .

    Come back and post in here how you like them when you use them, OK? I was reluctant as hell to buy them when I accidentally ran into a BB.com member (he's an original member, but hasn't posted here in several years) on a business trip to SC, and he told me I had to try them. I was up to 500# on RD's and canvass straps were tearing up my hands/wrists at that weight. Man, these things are the greatest

    Hey, didn't I get you to try them too? Maybe not, but I know I've sold several members here on them since I got mine.

    Hey John, do you know which way to roll the grip to grab the bar? That may sound stupid, but this dummy tried to simply use them to follow the contour of his palm the first time I tried them. I actually said, "Damn it, I knew I shouldn't have listened to that guy" . No joke. And then....it hit me; you actually roll it under the bar and back toward yourself. Huge difference

    It's really kinda hard to tell from the pics on their site.

    How easy is it to "one hand roll" them? Yes, I'm talking about the gloves not a doob.

    LOL actually it came with instructions

    But yeah I know exactly how to use it, the other way would be good for any pushing movements as it also has a slight cushion on it, sort of like a glove.

    You just rolled it against the bar and it snugs it, perfect tight fit! No more f'cking twisting and turning!!

    I used to have some straps that were made from a karate belt, it was a major pita wrapping and rolling.

    Think I'll order me some of these. Currently my hold up on dead's isn't my back, it's my grip.

I appreciate the information. I almost bought a pair of hookers. These should be alot more versatile.

    Oh no. Another new "toy" for my wish list.

    I used the grips for the first time this morning. They're outstanding! My last (2) sets of 5 were @ 405 (RD's) up from 360 last week. Absolutely no pain in the hands I have a 3 day split and missed a whole split due to working double shifts last week and still ganied on my lift. Thanks again Kevin!!




    AND THEN...............I made a mistake that I have never made in the gym..ever. My mind was in a land far far away and I was re-racking the plates. For some really dumb reason I peeled all 4 plates off of one side before taking any off of the other. I know better, but for whatever reason had a dumbass attack. You can picture the rest of the story. Bar flips on end and have to push the bar back down while taking off the plates. There was a nice guy that came to give me a hand. Wow, I really felt like an idiot.

    John, this intrigues me coming back from hand surgery. I am incredibly anxious about my grip as I will be a total of six weeks of immobilization. Any thoughts?

    Tom

    I would be the last person to ask about working out after surgery I am somewhat of an ignorant dumbass when it comes to training after surgery. As you know after my accident I was told NOT to do certain exercises and yet I did, whether it was bad or good for me I didn't care, I still did them. Fortunately it worked out for the better for me as I am fully recovered 100% and I honestly believe it was because I did do what they said for me not to do. But I wouldn't want to give you advise on something I know nothing of. Sorry

    Fantastic! Glad to hear that Dave. I was highly confident you'd love em' and never regret it, and I couldn't say that about any other supp or BBing type of product I can think of.

    And great progress on the 405 sets! I have RD's scheduled for tomorrow and can't wait.

    Thanks John. I am aiming for a hybrid of you and me. I have found that the ice I ace wrap to my hand is actually doing something for me besides pain control. Shoulder and biceps not falling off as fast as forearm and triceps. .

    Going nuts not lifting. I am going to beg of my sweetheart to help me set up the leg sled tomorrow for some leg work
