Ratings & Reviews
My hands are a size "Large" and I can NOT recommend this product. Maybe someone with bigger hands might be able to get a grip while using this lifting hooks, but I wasn't able to. Someone at the gym uses some other brand that has a smaller hook, so the lifter is able to get a grip on the bar to neutralize the wrist and the hook aids in the puling exercise. But for me not this product. It put too much stress on my wrists because I couldn't get a grip around the hook thus shooting pain all the way down my elbow. I don't have this problem with Schiek Lifting Straps, which I believe would be a better alternative for those looking for extra support. I would recommend trying a pair before committing to buying a pair. Sorry, but hope this helps.
If you are looking for some thing to help your grip so you can focus on lifting a lot more? Because this is for you, my friends and I use them all the time and it let's me put 100-150 lbs more on shrugs without letting my grip slip at all!!! Great product, I defiantly recommend it!
The hook is so wide. It's not comfortable to use.
Got these to help up my back workouts and my deadlifts. Was worried about the quality and usability... but they really work great. You just need to trust them. It's that instinct that tells you it's going to roll off... but it really isn't. High quality hooks. No bending. Great wrist wraps. Minimal discomfort.
Have used for 4 months now, two times a week. Really no wear on them yet. Work well with the Schiek Gloves I have and the Gold's Gym gloves I have. I like the width of them as I can put three fingers on the hook for a better grip. Other hooks never really got more than one finger on so it always felt funny having one finger pulled up more than the others. Good quality, worth the extra money. The other hooks, Harbinger Lifting Hooks, the seams tore out quickly on the hook part and let it slip out, etc. just became unsafe in a short period of time. Was worrying more about keeping the hook in place instead of the exercise.
Use it for pull-ups in the park & in the weight room. Hooks are rubberized so as not to scratch the bars but obviously easily scraped by the rough diamond grips of barbell bars. Although nicely padded wish it was as wide as the Schiek Wrist Support. Also would be nice if the hooks is on an slight angle or can slightly swivel left or right for wide-grip pull-ups. At times I also feel I wish the hook has a slightly smaller radius & slightly longer to hook on to the bar. Even with all of these critiques in mind, it's still the best one I've used to date. Still recommend it!
I've gotten to use a few other hooks and straps and this product easily outshines them all. With these hooks I've found it easier to isolate my lats significantly better, since I don't have to focus on grip, for pullups, t bar rows, lat pull downs, shoulder shrugs etc. I have also made noticeable improvements in the amount of weight that I can lift and increase in muscle gain since I've started using these. I'd recommend these to anyone and they are my favorite accessory at the gym.
Fantastic product. Second time I've bought them. First pair mysteriously disappeared at the gym....almost went crazy without them. They allow you to "go heavy" without concern for grip fatigue. Extremely comfortable and easy to get on & off. Would recommend to anyone looking for lifting hooks.
Realy enjoyed using SchiekLifting Hooks in Back training.
These are the best hooks I've ever used. The thick wrist padding makes them comfortable under even the heaviest loads. The hooks are wide and deep so I don't have to worry about the bar rolling. I would recommend these to anyone.
Hooks too long. Wrist support ends up slipping and makes it extremely uncomfortable for deadlifts or pull ups. Don't feel safe with them, in terms that they may slip. Straps are better all round, even if the exercise takes longer to set up.
Amazing product. I'v used several different brands of hooks and these by far take the cake, the hook on them is big and have a nice grip support. Also they are beyond comfy. 10/10 would buy over & over again.
I've used these powerlifting hooks for the past 4 weeks and they are excellent. They allow you to lift heavier without fatiguing your grip while focusing on your desired muscle groups; particularly shoulder shrugs (dumbbell or barbell), seated row, lat pull down, hack squat. I have not noticed any wear or tear and they feel as if constructed to take a beating in the gym. They are easier to set up for your lift than lifting straps. The only negative to consider is that you may not be able to perform a full and tight squeeze with a seated row bar due to the natural mechanics of the body and the hooks wanting to roll off the handles with the motion. With that being said, I still rated them a 10 and they have not actually fallen off the handles during seated rows. I substituted two strap handles in place of the seated row bar with the hooks and that allowed for a tighter squeeze during seated rows, accommodating the bodies mechanics without any issue. I love incorporating this product into my workouts for heavier lifts and to fully isolate the training of my back muscles. Highly recommended!
I've tried a few other hooks, but these are far and away the best of them all. They are wide and will not roll when lifting heavy. The straps are well constructed and so far have been very rugged after about a years use. Don't waste your money on the others!
