      I have the weakest wrists there are. They crack forever. I can't do palm pushups. Meanwhile I never bench with wrist wraps, don't need them for squat. I don't see the utility.

      when you pass 3 plates you will start to notice this some bars spin easily if you don't use them there will be big power leaks

        cont. it's same as dyels who squat with bars without center knurling you don't notice the difference because you're below 3plates and the weight doesn't create enough pressure to break friction

            no one that squats 450 doesn't use a bar with a knurling, like you're just larping for the sake of it. If you even try to unrack it the difference is night and day

              Not who you were replying to, but lol, if you think "nobody" squats 450 with a bar with no knurling, you haven't been to most gyms in the USA lately.
              FFS, half the gyms I've been to in my chain have NO bars with center knurling at all, literally, the entire 50% of the center of the bar has nothing but slip slidey bullshit.
              Needless to say, I've squatted 500 with these shit bars, but yes, they suck ass for doing any rep work because that bar moves all over your fricking back like crazy.
              When you realize that there were guys squatting 700+ on bars with zero knurling decades ago, you come to terms with the fact you have no excuse not to still lift heavy even when the equipment sucks balls.

                keep in mind that the guy in the pic is a world class weightlifter and has perfect limb ratios for squatting. (short femurs) generally most of your squats wont look nearly as vertical as his.

            if deadlift isnt a grip exercise then why do you need straps? if squat doesnt require core strength, why use a belt? it does require those things lmfao

              Weight genuinely feels lighter in your hand. You don't need to work to keep the bar in the correct position because the wrist wraps will keep your wrist from falling back. I can bench the same amount with or without wrist wraps, but with wraps it's one less thing to think about

                Interesting... There's 4 bars at my commercial gym and I've specially marked the one I like the most with chalk to use for myself because the others kinda rotate in your hand.
                One time I used another bar when benching and it kind of just rolled forward almost dropped it on me. Wonder if wrist wraps would fix that with any bar or the bars are just shit?
                I always assumed wrist wraps were for people who had wrist pain and I never had any so I just never bought any.

                Nta but you’re probably using oly bars, they rotate freely. I workout at a CrossFit gym at work and I can’t bench over 100kg there due to how much the bars spin the weights. Wraps won’t help you here.

                >I like the most with chalk to use for myself because the others kinda rotate in your hand
                I've had this issue with cheap thin bars. In a hotel I was benching and the bar just kind rolled forward and almost out of my hand. Since wrist wraps really tighten your hand position (if they're tight enough it's hard to even open your hand) that would probably help, but you should be able to maintain your hand position without them.
                >I always assumed wrist wraps were for people who had wrist pain and I never had any so I just never bought any.
                They're really not a necessity, but my thought is I'm training bench, not my wrists, so I use wraps.

                Yeah on olympic bars since the collars spin so freely I feel like I need to choke the shit out of the bar instead of letting it sit in my hand.
