Why You Need To Train With Wrist Wraps | THENX

– What’s up elite THENX
athletes, it’s Chris Heria. Welcome to another
video of Official THENX. Today we’re gonna show you why you need to train with wrist wraps
and how to use them. Let’s get started. (slow tempo house music) All right. So let’s get started. Today I’m going to show you why you need to train with wrist wraps
and how to use them. Wrist wraps are used
for extra wrist support. Extra wrist support is going
to increase your ability to support more wrist pressure. That’s gonna mean more reps,
longer holds, heavier lifts, increased stability, and
of course healthier joints. Having this wrist wrap
here to support your wrists is gonna keep your wrist
really, really straight. When your wrist is really straight, really supported like this,
it’s tight and braced. It’s gonna allow you
to do more repetitions. Normally, when you’re working
out you’re joints tend to give out before your muscles do. So having these is gonna
allow you to focus more on the repetitions allowing
you to get more reps in there. Normally, when doing stabilizing exercises such as handstands you
work a lot of that wrist and it takes a lot of wrist
stability and pressure to be able to get a nice clean handstand. These wrist wraps are gonna
keep your wrist super straight, so even if you feel like
wobbling a little bit, it’s gonna give that extra support. It’s gonna feel a lot easier to balance in your handstand or any
other stabilization exercises. It’s also gonna allow you to
lift heavier because it has a brace around your wrist,
a support around your wrist. Kind of like when you see power
lifters using a weight belt to help lift heavier weights,
this is the same thing. It’s like a mini weight
belt for your wrists so it’s gonna allow you
to have more pressure on your wrists, heavier lifts,
longer holds, and more reps. And of course it’s a lot
healthier on your joints. When doing exercises involving joints and tendons, you want to make sure that you’re also always
protecting your joints. Having healthy joints,
you’re gonna be able to progress a lot safer, a lot easier, you’re not gonna hit that
plateau because you’re injured. So wearing these is gonna
support your wrists. It’s gonna prevent injury by
keeping your wrists straight, no matter what, and not allowing to bend your wrist passed
where it’s supposed to. All right, so now we’re
gonna do a whole-body workout that incorporates all the
topics we just covered. We’re gonna show you how to apply them with different exercises. So the first exercise is
gonna be handstand hold. Then, we’re gonna go
into 90 degree pushups. After, we’re gonna go
for explosive muscle-ups. Then, we’re gonna go into deadlifts. Next, we have one arm pullups. After, we have explosive pushups. And then we’re gonna finish
off with single arm L-sit hold. So you guys ready? Let’s go for it. The first one, we have handstand hold. We’re gonna warmup, so
when doing this move with the wrist wraps you want to make sure to just loosen them a
little bit, and the way that you can loosen them is
just take a nice little grip, and then just twist them the opposite way to where you feel loose. See, so we’re gonna loosen
them up a little bit. And the reason why is because
when we’re putting our palms down on the ground you want
to give enough mobility in your wrists to be
able to be just like this and not have it like
squeezing your wrist, okay. So we’re gonna give it a little
bit of space so we can move. Let’s go for this handstand hold. (slow instrumental hip-hop music) (breathes deeply) All right. That was a nice little warmup. Now, we get the workout started. So next, we’re gonna go
into 90 degree pushups. Now, this is an advanced move. We’re not gonna show you
guys how to do this move. If you want to learn all the
other moves go onto thenx.com and become a member to learn all these. Right now we’re gonna go
into 90 degree pushups. So now here we’re holding onto a bar. Now you want to tighten
this so hold it a little bit and just go like that,
you’ll feel it tighten up. So now that it’s tighter, you’ll be able to have a
more solid, more stable grip. Now, if you try to put your
hand back down on the floor, you’re gonna feel a lot
of pressure right here. So if you’re gonna do more
open-hand floor style moves, you want to then loosen
it back up a little bit. But we’re gonna keep it nice and tight. (breathes deeply) Let’s
go into 90 degree pushups. (slow instrumental hip-hop music) Oh yeah, all right. Oh my gosh. That was intense. Let’s move on to the next exercise. (breathes deeply) So now we have explosive muscle-ups. So a lot of times when
you’re doing bar movements, explosive bar movements,
just having that grip, that’s where you first give out, you know. And then it’s the muscle, right? But just even hanging feels hard. Having these wraps on is gonna allow you to keep a stronger grip, it’s
gonna be more comfortable. It’s gonna have support for your wrists, you’re gonna be able to
hang like it’s nothing. All right, so now we’re
gonna put these wrist wraps and grip strength to the
test with this next exercise. Make sure you loosen a little bit, so you can have some
mobility in that wrist. Let’s go for some explosive muscle-ups. (heavy instrumental hip-hop music) (exhales deeply) Yep. I think they work,
that’s enough jumping around. Let’s move on to the next exercise. Next, we have deadlifts. All right let’s go for this. So like I said, having this wrist support is gonna help you lift more, it’s gonna be more comfortable
when you lift especially. Of course, this is gonna
make you do more reps. You’ll be able to lift longer
and everything like that. You’re gonna get addicted
to having them on. So don’t forget that when
you make those new gains, take them off and try to adjust
them to your natural wrist because you want to make sure that you’re strengthening your wrists too. So if you’re doing
something like deadlift, you start to lift
heavier more consistently and you’re adding more reps as well, take them off and try
to do the same thing. Once you’ve mastered it with
it off, put it back on again and keep making those gains,
making those progress. So now we’re gonna go for some deadlifts. Now, to build more strength you want to go for three to five reps, so we’re gonna go for a
three to five rep range. (uptempo house music) (weight crashes)
(breathes deeply) Okay. (breathes deeply) We’re almost to the end,
next we have one arm pullups. Let’s go for it. (uptempo house music) (uptempo house music)
(moves into heavy house music) One more each. (heavy house music) Oh yeah. All right, now we have explosive pushups. (breathes heavily) Let’s go for it. So normally, this is
another move right here, people do this or they don’t like to do it because they feel like that explosiveness is too much pressure in their wrists. So this is definitely gonna help a lot. Make sure now, you loosen it a little bit so you have more wrist
mobility, you can put your hand down flat comfortably. All right explosive pushups, here we go. (heavy house music) All right. (breathes heavily) See, the best part about that is I can focus on doing more reps. I don’t have to worry
about that wrist pain because this keeps my wrists straight. All right. We’re gonna
go for the last move. Single arm L-sit hold. You ready for this? Let’s go for it. (heavy instrumental hip-hop music) (breathes deeply) All right, so there you have it. That’s the end of the routine. If you can do this routine
three rounds you’re a beast. But this is how you use the wrist wraps. This is why you need to
train with the wrist wraps. It’s gonna be a lot easier
to make gains, to progress. And you’re gonna not find
yourself plateau so often. It’s gonna keep you on the next level. So thank you guys so much for watching. If you enjoyed the video don’t forget to like, share, comment,

  2. Chris heria, I started months ago to train with wristbands, but when I train without thath I feel like my wrists are too weak.

  3. If wrist wraps are so beneficial why do you often not wear them in your videos? Im considering on buying them but am slightly unsure.

  4. youtube channel name is blatant rip off of athlean-x…without jeff cavalier you'd be virtually unknown. tool.

  5. I have seen a professional gymnast try and fail at the very first rep for the ninety degree pushup. This is awesome stuff from thenx

  6. Explosive pushups are dangerous though. For example I was doing some explosive pushups in the living room the other day and my friend walks in and lights a cigarette. I stopped immediately because the whole house almost blew up. Don't play with explosives!

  7. I disagree with the notion of using an assistive device to try to out perform what an area of the body can perform. How about you encourage this community to spend more time on wrist strength and mobility?

  8. Besides the deadlift I don’t think 90% of these people can do any of the other exercises….maybe the handstand warmup

  9. Hmmmm a quick question, if you would work out with these bands every time doesn't that actually give your muscle memory less progression? cause i would think it's good to use your bare wrists for push ups and handstands for example so they kinda get used to it.

  10. Thanks man! This was really helpful, whenever I work out my wrists are the first to go so I have to limit myself, but now I know how to properly use the wraps

  11. So wrist wraps are for cheating…just kidding, more great content and information. Your unstoppable.

  12. If "joints give out before muscles" then wouldn't using straps (which relieve tension from joints) exacerbate the problem of wrist giving out? Because then you are further strengthening your major muscles while not addressing the weak wrist issue? I am a percussionist so my wrists never give out before my major muscles (at least yet) because my major muscles aren't that big LOL and my wrists and forearms are crazy strong from years of playing my instrument.

  13. If you also use wrist wraps too much your wrists get weak and that's not good either because then you'll have pain

  14. I returned gymming after a delivery & seem to hv lost all stamina. You guys do a vid on returning moms?! I love all ur vids.

  15. Sometimes, I wish I was 5 foot 6 inches and weighed 135lbs soaking wet. Then, this kind of stuff would be attainable but being a 6'2, 270lbs man. There isn't a hope in hell for someone of my size being able to do half of this sort of acrobats.. Although I sure do enjoy, currently, being able to bench press 315lbs; incline press 225lbs and shoulder press 170lbs (2x85lbs dumbbells) with ease. Deadlifting sucks for bigger guys; the weights have farther to go than someone much shorter than me.. :/

  16. I just started going to gym and i have noticed many people wearing gloves especially while doing pull ups so there hands don't get hurt but I think it's bullshit

  17. Hey Thenx, i have recently sustained a TFCC tear in my right wrist. Do you think the wrist wraps will help support this injury in day to day life as well as during exercise? Many thanks!

  18. Chris you should more the Thenx videos long like it use to be. An I miss the vlogs about working out and cooking tips too.

  19. The silly vsuck of cunt didn't even put them on fucking properly what fuck bag had supposed to be in a fist when your wrapping kids

  20. I'd love to buy some of your wrist wraps but the shipping costs to Germany are just insane, it's almost double the wrist wrap itself 🙁

  21. Chris what are the differences between the wrist wraps I see in the vid and the one regular lifters wear. Are they the same?

  22. Chris, how about a video on how to strengthen wrists? Wraps are great but in order to do all the moves shown you already require a certain amount of wrist strength (which is pretty much true for calisthenics as a whole).
    Thanks for the informative video, keep it up✌

  23. Im from the UK. The only thing stopping me buying THENX PRO is because sometimes you Americans explain differently to us. Has anyone got the THENX PRO and can give me advice?

  24. This guy just showed up in my recommended cause i watch guys like Jeff Nippard, so i wanted to see if this guys knew what he was talking about. After watching his vid, he has no clue what he’s talking about. Don’t use wrist wraps on deadlifts, use straps. This guys provides no scientific backed research or proof to his claims. If i was any of y’all, i would watch Jeff Nippard. He’s one of if not the best body builders on YouTube and provides scientific studies to all of his claims the will get you the best bang for your buck
