    1. Put fat man loop around thumb

    2. Go around twice, pulling the wrap as tight as possible each rotation. Make sure the 2nd rotation is higher then the 1st one.

    3. when the wrap is sitting under your thumb, bring it down across the two rotations.

    4. on the back side, bring it up and criss-cross the diagnol wraps you just did. this will make and X patter on your hand.

    5. wrap the remaining material toward the top of your wrist and lower hand.

    you shouldnt be able to bring your wrist forward or back - and the pressure should be enough that your hand snaps back to a fist when you open your fingers out.

    6. remove fat man loop.



    this is also helpful when deadlifting, a good wrap can help your grip

    EDIT: These are for long wraps - if you have short wraps....... buy some long wraps. if you can't, put your emphases on one wrap around the base of the wrist, then come up over the lower portion of you hand, then wrap the remaining material between the two locations, don't worry about a criss-cross.

    criss cross will make you jump.



    EDIT 2:

    And as a recently permabanned associate just reminded me, this will cut off the circulation after a little bit. so if you are getting ready for a meet lift, you don't want to be standing there for too long wrapped tight or else you won't be able to feel your hands, and that is a shitty feeling.

    doesn't really matter... someone gave me the Inzer long wraps and they are great. wraps all come down to personal preference. the Metal All Blacks are insane and feel like a cast, but they are expensive as balls and you can't get them right now.

    whatever you do, get the long wraps. I use long wraps for my heavy ass sets and my shorties for heavier sets (315-405 = shorties, 405+ = long wraps) wrist wraps are used on all pulls above 455, too

    I use an extremely thin Sports Authority belt for benching, leather double prong. Ed Rectenwald (655 bench) uses the same belt. Again, its all personal preference - I just didnt like big belt

    Now do one for knee wraps by this evening or at least by friday and I'll be set. I put them on nice and tight last night and not sure if i could hit parallel at all (no weight though)

    I only like my big belt for max effort squats. I use a medium thickness belt for pulls and speed squats. thin guy for bench work

    For squats and deads only, being much less advanced than you, a medium would be best? And how do I know how thick is each brand?

    yeah get a mid cut belt, most will say their thickness. A thick belt is like 13mm, you will want something less then that.

    I think a lot of people really like the EFS prime cut belt

    My prime cut belt was 12mm so it seems to depend, some people get a 10 some get an 11 some get a 12
