Terrible, Awful, Brutal, Not for Gym Regulars.Dec 01, 2006
I receieved the Valeo padded straps and headed off to the gym, after waiting a week for the product to arrive with shipping costs more than the cost of the straps which is rediculous. I purchased them after I lost my previous pair of TKO Fitness straps after beating on them for about 4 years with no problems. I put on the Valeo straps and did one pull-up, and one of the straps ripped in half right on the seam where the neoprene pad was sewn in. My advice, this product is poorly made and cheap. A complete waste of money. Go with something better, and I would avoid the padded straps because the extra stitching weakens the strap fabric.

Good, comfortable lifting strapsMar 09, 2007
By Chae An
From novice to intermediate, this is an excellent set of lifting straps. You don't need something like this from the beginning. But the weight you're handling starts to exceed your grip strength, this is invaluable.
Use is simple. You just wrap the strap around the bar. There is no real technique to it. As you lift the weight, the weight itself will pull the strap tight and transfer some of the load to the straps around your wrists. I don't recommend wrapping the straps too tight, as that will transfer almost all weight to your wrists and your forearms won't get the usual amount of workout. The point is to complete the lift without your grip failing, not avoiding using your grip altogether. If you do it right, your grip will be supporting most of the weight in the beginning, and as you complete more reps and your grips start to fail, more and more weight can be transfered to the straps.
This is a simple, no frills strap. It works and it's priced very reasonably. Padding is a little light, but it's adequate unless you are handling some Herculean weight.

Nice StrapsSep 05, 2006
These straps work great. They are nice and thick and seem to be made well. They're easy to put on and they stay out of the way when you aren't using them. Valeo made a nice strap.

Valero straps are awesome. I only order more when I lose them because they are durable. Unfortunately this one was sowed wrong so when I wrap it around to use it as a glove, the padding is situated on the wrong side. I am sure that it was just defective and skipped quality control. I usually recommend Valeo straps.
