When lifting in the gym, we all want to get stronger and adding heavier weight to our program is the way to achieve that.  When you increase weight while training your grip can be one of the first things that fail.  This is where lifting straps have become an essential piece of gym gear that many people use.  There are many types of lifting strap options from Figure 8 Lifting Straps, Cotton Lifting Straps, Leather Lifting Straps, and many others.

Lifting straps are nothing new and have been around for many years.  These straps have helped individuals lift heavy weight. This was especially noted when Eddie Hall's World Record Deadlift of 500kg (1102 lbs.)  Eddie used the exact type of Figure 8 Lifting Strap we offer and the Figure 8 Lifting Straps have been used by thousands of people who are strongman training, powerlifting, bodybuilding, and even the everyday gym goers.  They use these type of straps when they want to go for that PR or even to lift heavier weight knowing their grip won't be compromised. TUFF Figure 8 Lifting Straps are made with heavy-duty cotton that utilises a unique weave for maximum durability.  Despite the heavy-duty construction, they are very comfortable to use. These Figure 8 Lifting Straps will enhance your lifting technique, decrease premature grip fatigue, and boost your work rate by up to 40%!

So how do they work?

We included a video to help show how to use these Figure 8 straps most effectively.
