When signing up for CrossFit or any fitness program, knowing what to get and what not to get is often an overwhelming task. Without a clear plan, it can be a challenge to figure out what to purchase first, what is a necessity, and when to pull the plug on an item. Here is a buyer’s guide to help you avoid any bad purchases. I listed them the order in which I suggest they should be purchased.

Wrist Wraps by Rogue – 18″ length: Crossfit Wrist Wraps

  • Often athletes starting out with CrossFit will complain about wrist discomfort due to lack of wrist mobility. Although the discomfort will mitigate with time, wrist wraps are great to have for supporting weight overhead. Even when the discomfort is no longer an issue, you will be happy you have them. Use them for greater wrist stability anytime you are pressing or going overhead during weightlifting, powerlifting, and strongman training. Use them for support during Body weight and gymnastic movements.
