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 Video Demonstration: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hQbcnqMlL4 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.
