    Is this a suitable wrist support?

    Basically iv been having trouble with my right wrist ever since i upped my wrist curl weight about 3 or 4 weeks ago, i no longer do wrist curls but i still get the weakness in my wrist when doing dumbbell curls, barbell curls and bench press, i get a really uncomfortable wrist that clicks when i move it around after workout and its uncomfortable (almost painful but not quite) when i lean on it. also if i hold my right hand out and push on it with my left (kinda like a arm wrestle movement) it feels like im gonna pull it out the socket


    i dont want this to slow me down so i thought about getting this:

    I would try to buy some quality wrist wraps like APT or EliteFTS. EliteFTS just recently released here own product line for equipment.

    The EliteFTS are a knockoff of the APT products.

    APT is the way to go - unbeatable selection, pricing, and customer service.

    For heavy pressing and other lifts I really like the Black Mamba wraps. They give you strong support but are also very comfortable. For a good all around support I would suggest the ZRV wraps. If you want something very rigid you can go with the stragulators or convict wraps.
