Save Your Wrists With Optimo Fitness Ergonomic Grips

Article updated May, 2024.

A wrist injury can really hold you back when it comes to lifting weights. Optimo Grips are designed to take the strain off your wrists and can be attached to a range of existing gym equipment. Let’s explore the Optimo fitness ergonomic grips in more detail…

Introducing Optimo Fitness Ergonomic Grips

Stay safe with Grips Designed by Athletes, for Athletes.
The Optimo fitness ergonomic grip was designed with feedback from world-class athletes. They feature a 1 inch ergonomic wing that provides extra pressure dampening. The idea of the 1 inch wing is instead increasing the thickness (or diameter) all around by an inch, you have an extra thick section of rubber to hold the grip securely in place.

The thick section of rubber also creates a softer end for extra comfort and creates a slightly conical shape for the hands, providing a secure feeling that’s unparalleled to grasping onto conventional dumbbell and barbell handles. They are a grip that can attach to almost any existing equipment found in gyms today.

The grip is made up of a unique silicone rubber compound that is flexible but very stout and does not compress when weight is applied. The shape is designed to help relieve pressure and assist in isolating target muscles.

Benefits of training with ergonomic grips

Pressure relief and increased comfort:
Optimo Grips provide pressure relief by distributing the weight over a wider surface area on the palm, which ultimately makes each lift more comfortable and efficient than they were without.

Targeting specific muscles with a different angle grip:
These grips snap on immediately and are easy to remove. By changing the angle of your hand placement, it changes your workout entirely.

They can be used for all or one of many sets. It’s a good change of pace and may be especially helpful if you’ve hit a plateau, needing to try something different.

Improved hygiene on shared equipment:
In a post-pandemic world, another benefit of training with your own ergonomic grips is is that they provide you with an increased level of safety and hygiene when your training at the gym, rather than handling shared equipment that hasn’t been wiped down by the previous user.

Thousands of people all over the world are now using Optimo Grips and the product has earned quite a reputation as one of the most comfortable and effective grips for weight lifting.

How do Optimo ergonomic grips work?

Optimo Grips attach to just about any type of barbell, dumbbell, or other type of attachment in the gym (any 1 to 1.5-inch handle). They can be used for basic lifts like bench press, curls, pull-ups, lat pull-downs, shoulder press, etc. They’ll also be helpful when using cables or machine equipment where there is a suitable handle.

Optimo Grips are flexible enough to wrap around multiple types of equipment and are extremely easy to take on and off. They weigh next to nothing, but are tough enough to not compress when weight is applied. You can’t squeeze them like a stress ball.

It does not feel abnormal to use the grips. They fit snug on the bar and are easy on the hands. The angles also help to relieve pressure on your wrists and shoulders.
