Equipment

Belt

Belts are great for improving strength and decreasing the risk of injury.

Wrist wraps

Wrist wraps are used to comfortably stabilize the wrist while lifting heavy weights. They are commonly used during the bench press and sqaut.

Flat shoes

Unlike running sneakers, flat shoes allow the lifter to distribute weight through the backside of the foot and effectively “spread the floor apart."

Singlet

Singlets are essentially your uniform while weightlifting. They are required at all events.

Knee-high socks

While deadlifting, bloody shins are a common occurence. Knee-high socks are a great way to prevent this.
