One of the fastest growing accessory brands is Gymreapers, and one of its biggest sellers is its lifting straps. Gymreapers’ premium padded lifting straps are designed for both comfort and performance. They can be used for any handle, regardless of knurling, and they’ll hold up until the end of the workout.

Gymreapers Lifting Straps features

There are nine different color schemes available and they cost less than many other brands (so you can buy multiple pairs to match outfits, if that’s your thing). The neoprene material is supposed to provide comfort, which it does, and the straps do have extra padding where it matters most.

The company logo with their trademark skull is right on the top. They do look good and perform well under the toughest conditions. Beginners and those with sensitive skin would be wise to test them out with lighter resistance to make sure they feel comfortable with them.

These are durable enough to be used by strongman competitors in training or competition if the organisation allows them.

Discover how to use lifting straps

The Gymreapers lifting straps are 18in (45.7cm) long, which is shorter than many other brands, but you can still secure the strap to the handle without any trouble. I found these to be beneficial for using on cable attachments and smaller handles. Of course, they’ll work on barbells and machine handles as well. 

The company also stands behind its product by offering a lifetime replacement guarantee. The straps are available on both Gymreapers’ websites and on Amazon, where they have an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 from more than 16,000 reviews.
