Sports-Specific Training

GripSling has many sport-specific training applications, including (but not limited to):

  • OCR & Obstacle Training: from modified rope-climbs to swinging transfers, GripSling will help you gain the necessary skills needed to conquer obstacles. Our training straps are considered to be essential gear by many ninja-warrior athletes and elite obstacle course racers.

  • Surfing & board-sports: condition vital boarding skills like balance, coordination, and agility with the exercise strap's unique dynamic.

  • MMA, Jiu Jitsu, & combat sports: develop superior grip strength for clutching your opponent’s limbs, gi, or clothing—an ideal training tool for military and law enforcement.

  • Power lifting & strongman: durable, extra-thick straps can securely harness your wrist when weightlifting, or use the workout straps to control the resistance and improve your grip strength.

  • Rock climbing & bouldering: practice specific forearm and finger grip strengthening movements for scaling the most challenging cliffs, glaciers, or indoor walls.

 

Physical Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation

GripSling training methods may be prescribed to individuals of any fitness ability, and the GripSling device may be an appropriate aid for any stage of rehabilitation. The device may be used for many types of therapy, including: musculoskeletal injury rehabilitation, mobility and range of motion strengthening, and for joint stability enhancement. GripSling may assist patients in completing movements in planes of motion more safely and effectively by helping them perform comfortable, controlled therapy and rehabilitation. Also, the device is a great tool for helping people of all ages achieve a healthy lifestyle, as GripSling may be incorporated within any wellness program. Consult with your physician to see if GripSling is right for you.

 

Proper & Safe Use

Only wrap GripSling products around non-abrasive surfaces in order to prevent damage to the material. If strapping/ anchoring the product to abrasive surfaces (such as untreated wood, textured metal, or any angled object that has an edge), it is recommended to place a small towel or washcloth between the surface of the object and your GripSling Raw Training Straps.

Thoroughly inspect GripSling training straps before use for any defects, wear, or abrasion. Discontinue using the exercise straps if they are damaged in any way.

Do not perform exercises with GripSling that may cause physical harm or bodily injury. Always consult with your physician before beginning any type of exercise program. Please refer to our Disclaimer and Privacy Policy for GripSling's complete waiver of liability and detailed disclosures.

 

Care & Maintenance

Wash and storage your GripSling products by following the below instructions:

  • Always hang your fitness straps in a cool and dry place after training to prevent mold and mildew.

  • GripSling products are made out of cotton material and are not pre-shrunk.

  • Hand-wash with cold water separately from your other clothes. DO NOT wash your workout straps in warm water.

  • If badly soiled, use a few drops of mild, non-bleach detergent when washing your fitness straps. Strong detergents can be harmful on the material's fibers and may shorten the lifespan on your GripSling Raw Training Straps.

  • Hang-dry or air-dry. DO NOT machine dry your exercise straps.

  • Store your training straps in a cool, dry place and keep out of reach from children and animals.
