True Natural Raw Strength journal, articles, and rants of a strength chasing mountain man. I am a competitive Olympic lifter and hunter. I have lifted weights since 1996, and started doing in Olympic lifts in 2008. I have a good handle on persistance, determination, what works, and nutrition. My training has always been drug free and simplistic, focusing on the foundations of proper training and diet.

Eleiko Weightlifting Wraps
Eleiko wrist wraps.
I have used the Eleiko wrist wraps in training and competition for almost 2 years and knee wraps for almost 1 year. I have almost worn through my second pair of wrist wraps even though I had them repaired once. The knee wraps are still going strong.
- Convienient to loosen/ tighten between sets.
- Supportive but not restrictive.
- Relatively inexpensive.
High wear area by the loops.
-Velcro stitching is not strong.
-The area around the thumb loops get's stretched.
-Less than 1 year life span.
In summary, don't expect the wrist wraps to be as good as Eleiko's barbells.
Eleiko Knee Wraps.
-Offers more support/tension than knee sleeves.
-Totally adjustable to different sizes and desired tension.
-More breathable than knee sleeves.
- They can loosen during movement, so you will need to continually adjust them between sets.
Here is a video of a competition while I wear Eleiko wraps:
