But to do it AGAIN Feb 27th. …

It’s nearly impossible for so many guys to hit so many routines so well, two meets in series.

gymnastics bar grips – finger wedgies

What are they?

This photo was posted by bogwoppit on the Chalk Bucket forum.

bogwoppit explains:

They make the finger holes of your grips smaller. I managed to get some from the UK, where they call them wedgies!

Leave a comment if you know of anyone else selling something like this.

We are currently using it for Hop 1/1 on Bar, as well. The last step following this stage.

Tony Retrosi is using the Quick Flex Bar for Shaposhnikova drills.
