To Wrap Or Not To Wrap Your Hands

You may be wondering why you need hand wraps when you’ve already got a pair of boxing gloves on. Sounds like overkill, right? Well...

Hand wraps have a number of jobs. When a fist is clenched, dozens of bones inside the hand come together to form a more solid object to deliver a blow. If your fist isn’t perfect, you run the risk of setting off a chain reaction of injuries that can twist, sprain, and even damage the tendons, ligaments and bones in your hands and wrists.

Hand wraps help secure the bones in your hands, increase padding across the knuckles, and add additional wrist support. When you’re wearing hand wraps and you make a fist, it’s tight, compact and helps your hands and wrists stay aligned.
