    Hey everyone, I've read a lot here the past year, but now I'm kind of stuck with something and I was hoping I could post here for help. I looked at past posts on the topic, but I've not really been able to figure it all out. I have a question about grip sizes. My current grips are too large...

    WAG Under grip thumb position

    Just a matter of curiosity... when doing undergrip skills like front giants, endos, weilers, jaegers, is it preferred to wrap your thumbs around the bar or keep them close the rest of the hand?

    MAG Need help / advice - injury causing inability to grip

    My son competes in Championships in a couple weeks and he hurt himself doing high-bar. I don't think it was a true injury on high-bar but the symptoms became obvious while on high-bar. He can't grip with his right hand. When he touches his thumb to his index finger, pain shoots up his arm into...

    WAG Grip/Wristband problems

    I currently have double buckle grips and recently the metal part of the grip has started to really hurt/irritate my wrist. I have tried washing my wristbands to get the chalk out and that helps, but only for a day. I have tried taping my wrist then putting a wristband on top which has helped so...

    My daughter had surgery to fix her broken radius a year ago. Her scar still hurts if rubbed or bumped. She’s finally at a level where (non dowel) grips are being used. But she can’t wear them because even with the wrist bands, it rubs and hurts. Any suggestions on padding that area to keep...

    For Coaches High Bar Grip Lock

    On Men's high bar, every so often someone's grip locks up, and often they break their wrist or worse. It seems to happen on eagle giants most. Why does this happen? What can be done to avoid it?

    WAG Grip help please

    I seem to recall that there was a pic posted of how grips are supposed to fit. I searched, but cannot find it. Can anyone help me find it? Other dumb questions from a clueless mom on behalf of a shy gymmie who doesn't want to ask the coach: 1. Do the buckles go near the thumb and the...

    MAG Grip frustration

    So DS has been using high bar grips from a new company and we're not having good luck. I think they lack quality control. The first pair he had, two of the tines for the buckles broke off in the first couple weeks. Now he just started using a new pair, and the leather of the strap snapped in...

    For Parents Clueless grip question

    DD mentioned her grips are feeling a little small, so I figured I'd get some new ones after states in 2 weeks, as I read they need "breaking in" (??) I didn't buy her current ones. Her friends mum measured and bought them. I had no idea there were even different kinds. So which part of the hand...
