You can save your joints a lot of wear and tear by purchasing the following inexpensive support devices.
- Wrist Wraps – Wrist wraps can be purchased off of Amazon for under $10. They help support your wrists during bench presses, overhead presses, and even during exercises such as push ups and dips.
- Knee Wraps – Knee wraps provide support during squats, helping to stave off knee tendonitis and things such as minor hamstring strains. You can purchase a decent pair for $30 and under.
- Bench Slingshot – If you have any form of shoulder issues, then Mark Bell’s bench press Slingshot is a necessity. It provides shoulder support, and works well not only while bench pressing, but also while performing push ups and dips.
