Hand wraps are more than just cool accessories to make you look like belong in a Street Fighter game (namely Sagat). It’s sexier than that. Hand wraps are good for your health. Seriously, you don’t want to break your wrists, or knuckles, or fingers, basically your whole damn hand. No. If you’ve been going at the heavy bag or punch pads, you need them hands wrapped and you know how to do it.
Hand wraps have variety. 4 meters or 180” semi-elastic hand wraps are great, meaning there’s more than enough to wrap and the elasticity lets you tighten to your comfort.
You can wrap your hands in a variety of ways. But I’m here to tell the best way to wrap em’ up:
First. Hold your hand downwards, knuckle-side up, spread your fingers, and keep your hand relaxed but with separation. Put your thumb through the thumb loop and pull the wrap across behind the back of your hand and wrap your wrist at least 3 times, keeping the edge of the wrap at the end of your wrist and not spilling toward the hand. Wrap three times, to form a comfy layers as to support the wrist but not to cut blood circulation. You want to be comfortable at the wrist end.
