Frequently Asked Questions
Why don’t you put them into gloves or put little finger thingies on your lifting grips?
Two reasons (and we’ve tested everything).
1) The material we use would not function as intended and we’d have an expensive glove that failed as a grip.
2) It would not meet our quality standards. Rubber fails at the stitching and it does not take long to do so.
Why don’t you make Big Back Lifting Grips in colors?
It would triple the price of the grips without improving performance. And pink or yellow would look gross after about 2 workouts. And seriously, if the color of your lifting grip is a bigger issue than its performance, you may be missing the point of using a grip at all. If color is really a big issue, you can injure yourself in lifting straps in any number of beautiful shades.
Are Big Back Grips only for working lats?
No, they will help you with dips, benching, dumbbells, curls, triceps, ropes, deadlifts, shrugs or just handling heave plates. They will cushion your palm bones against the crushing weight of heavy barbells and dumbbells. And you’ll have a firmer, cleaner, more comfortable grip on virtually any bar, handle or plate.
Where can I buy Big Back Grips and Big Back workout clothes?
Right here on this website or your local gym or supplement store.
Are Big Back Grips made in America?
Yes, yes, yes. We are made entirely in America. The FDA has approved the material for human contact without any warnings or cautions.
Do Big Back Grips contain latex?
No. Big Back Grips are made of certified Natural Rubber and contain no latex.
I’ve seen rubber grips and lifting pads before. Why are these different?
The Dual-Sided Gripping Tread, custom-engineered to our specs, makes all the difference. You’ve probably seen those thick or thin useless rubber pads with cloth on one side, usually re-purposed mouse-pads. They just don’t grip.
How long do they last? Are they washable?
The Grips will usually last 4-6 months, often longer. How often you use them, the condition of the gym equipment, and even how much you sweat will affect lifespan. No one ever said they didn’t get their money’s worth. To wash, squeeze them under warm running water. Let them air dry overnight after squeezing (NOT WRINGING) in a towel.
Are Big Back Grips guaranteed?
We guarantee them to be free of material defects and to work as promised.
