    Has anyone ordered wrist straps specifically for olympic lifting before? If so, where did you purchase them?

    I have seen a lot of videos of lifters using them, they don't look like normal wrist straps that nutrition stores carry.

    they will unravel a lot quicker if you ever have to dump, thus avoiding injury in a missed snatch from behind for instance where you cant let go of the bar as could be the case with normal straps

    They have a nice pair on there site, but I think what I mean to ask for was a wrist guard of sorts. I broke my wrist doing a clean a while back and since i have got back to lifting I would like to protect my wrists.

    Any ideas?

    you mean wrist wraps then...I assume any standard wrist wrap would work....
