Joe Kinney's Use Of Wrist Wraps For Negatives


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this topic has been discussed before, but here goes. I was watching Joe Kinney's video this morning. This point blew past me in previous viewings, but I noticed that Joe mentioned that he used wrist wraps when he did heavy negatives with his gripper. When I powerlifted, I would make a tight fist and wrap my wrists, giving a much more secure grip for my deadlift attempts. Has anyone else used wrist wraps in doing gripper negatives? Would you consider this "cheating"?

Wrist wraps are not allowed in the Löddeköpinge Grip Challenge, but this is competition. I would personally consider it cheating if it was used during certification.

I think Kinney used his wrist straps for support... which makes me wonder about that also, since he has very strong wrists. :blink
