    I'm starting to see people wear them constantly especially pros etc like jay but I have always been told they make your wrists weak.
    So does any one use them pros and cons etc?

    Does anyone wrap their wrist like boxers do before they lift lol. I saw that at the gym the other day.

    I got some wrist wraps and they do help if properly used. As I broke my left wrist years ago as a kid, it is rather unstable when benching heavy so wrist wraps do help provide the support.

    I must admit I would like to try it even though I don't lift heavy weights

    I had a hairline fracture in my left wrist when I was a teen and I use the cheap wrist wraps from Walmart and they've helped a lot when benching and curling.

    I usually use wrist wraps on heavy days and thats only if my wrists arent handling the weight too well. Sometimes i feel i need them sometime i dont. I wouldnt use to them to simply use them tho. Gonna get me some gangsta wraps soon.

    I know what you mean and I have those Walmart wrist sleeves that cost just 88 cents (still have them) and they did the job for me too. Now I use those velcro adjustable sleeves to provide the support when I need it.

    Absolutely! Just like with belts I use wrist or knee sleeves when needed for support when going heavy.
