Do you like using your hands? Well if you’re a heavy hitting pro or you simply enjoy venting your frustrations on the heavy bag, your hands are taking the impact. Hand wraps are an essential but largely neglected piece of equipment for anyone punching. They are an investment in your hands and our VS-1's are simple to use and unbeatably priced. Or even better, buy a loved one a pair, it’s almost guaranteed that they will say “I have been meaning to get a pair of these for ages”, therefore you have prevented their injury.
Here at Valour Strike we are enthusiastic about injury prevention and our superb ‘VS Hand Wraps’ certainly do just that.
Why You Need Hand-Wraps: Hand and wrist wraps are used to compress the bones and tissues in the hand. Boxers claim they feel less pain when striking, therefore they can strike with an increased force. Hand wraps increase injury prevention by maintaining the alignment of the joints, compressing and lending strength to the soft tissue of the hand during the impact of a punch. For such a small item they do wonders. Every serious boxer has a pair.
When applied correctly they supports the wrist joint ensuring it’s correctly aligned when the impact of a punch is absorbed by the wrong part of the hand. Hand wraps also significantly strengthens the metacarpus, reducing the likelihood of a fracture of one of the metacarpal bones. Such a fracture is commonly referred to as "boxer's fracture".
How to Use Hand Wraps: Simply place the loop over your thumb and wrap the hand reasonably tightly in your approved style. Use your wrist as the base to work from. With our 4.5m length, you will have more than enough length to wrap your whole hand. There are a variety of approved methods to wrapping your hand - advice and guidance can be seen in a number of videos on YouTube.com
Secure Fitting: a reinforced loop is applied over the thumb making the base to wrap from. The material is stretchy and therefore flexible enough to safely compress the hand without restricting the blood flow. The easy to use velcro grip ensures that once you have secured the wrap it will not come loose.
