    No sweat Steve (yet, lol!!! you know what I mean!)

    Most important, I believe, is not to over-wrap the hands - too tight and they will break...

    Wrapping is also required to be generally different depending on the gloves you are using.

    My advice would be first to learn exactly how hands should be wrapped...you'll be saving your hands pain and suffering.

    Out of interest, I don't wrap my hands in training. I've trained for proper fist position, supporting the bone structure and soft tissue all the way to the floor as a prop, and utilise heavier gloves for protection.

    Hope this gives a different perspective...

    Best regards,

    As Gary says above, but also worth checking your glove fit. More so in Boxing , I like to use bandages and tape , helps pack out my glove so it fits nice around my hand, no movement. But then you need someone to help you do this. Alot of the time i will use wraps , they just need to be applied correctly.

    I know that this is a slightly different subject, but here is the best way to wash wraps.
    Roll wrap up and secure with the Velcro. Place in washing machine and wash with other gym kit.
    When wash is finished. Unroll handwrap over a door to dry.
    This gives you a totally flat wrap. Easy to rewrap ready for wearing again.
    This will prevent tangles with the rest of your kit and trying to flatten out you wraps when washed.
    Hope this helps guys

    Ooossssssssss
    my boxing coach likes to dish out 100 burpees for every one that is unwrapped. My mate was hiding in his car rolling them up before he went in the gym, got busted... 200 straight out lol

    mexican style all the way, Windy too short generally , like the KING ones right now, Twins or Raja make up the rest of my ridiculous amounts of wraps....in every colour ! (self confessed handwrap tart) but both the actual wrap and how you wrap your hands is very individual
