Do you ever watch renowned weight-lifters take up record-breaking weights and are compelled to follow in their footsteps? You might as well have tried to break your records but fail to grasp that glory simply because your grip gives out. To solve this problem and become a bridge between you and your dreams, DMoose Fitness has developed its Figure 8 Lifting Straps. Made with Heavy-Duty Fabric and reinforced seams, our light-weight, and comfortable Figure 8 Straps give you an edge while lifting heavyweights. Your deadlifts and shrugs may have never been easier without this beauty by your side!

Figure 8 Lifting Strap is one of the many all-purpose lifting straps use to help you when your grip on bars seems to be slipping out. They are used by weightlifters, powerlifters, CrossFit athletes, and strongmen for exercises like shrugs and deadlifts, to name a few.

They are used to lift heavier weights for longer periods. The question arises- why do we need a Figure 8 Strap for that? It’s because our grip has a habit of giving out at the worst of times, mainly due to fatigue of these muscle groups. This hinders the stimulation of larger muscle groups which you might want to tap in extensive workouts.


  • Allows you to add on more pounds in your lifts. 
  • Conventional lifting straps take a lot of time to strap on, but Figure 8 Lifting Strap is quick and easy to wear. 
  • It is the most secure- almost too secure. You’ll be completely locked in with the bar as there is no extra end to wrap on the bar. Both the loops of Figure 8 Strap end up on your wrists. 
  • They can be used by beginners getting into powerlifting or at competition levels where they are allowed. 
  • Allows you to focus on working other, larger muscle groups without worrying about your grip giving out. 
  • Provides support to your wrist joint and stabilizes your wrists. 
  • Reduce strain off your muscles, thus decreasing the chances of injury.



Perform the following steps to properly wear and use a Figure 8 Lifting Strap.

  • Put your hand through one of the two loops. 
  • Bring the strap under the bar to bring the opposite loop up (If the strap is still too loose, twist it towards the plate side). 
  • Put your hand through the second loop. 
  • Maintain an upward tension and grab the bar from the inner part of the strap. Don’t grip the strap or your grip will be affected.



Most normal weight lifting exercises can be performed with a Figure 8 Lifting Strap such as deadlifts and shrugs. However, they are not recommended for exercises where you may have to drop the weight or lift it quickly overhead, i.e. Power Clean and Clean & Jerk.


Start by wearing your Figure 8 Strap around your Barbell. Your hands should be shoulderwidth apart. Bend your knees until your shins touch the bar. Lift your chest and straighten your back; hold the weight in position for a second. Return the weight gradually back to the ground. This completes a single rep.


Grab a Barbell and hold it in position with your DMoose Figure 8 Strap. Standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, place a barbell in front of your thighs, hands shoulder-width apart, palms facing your body, and arms fully extended. Keeping your arms straight, shrug your shoulders as high as you can. Pause, then lower to the start position.


stand with your feet under the bar, bend over and wrap your Figure 8 Lifting Strap around the bar. Your hands should be shoulder-width apart; keep your hips high and your back straight. Now lift the bar against your lower chest. Return the bar to the floor to complete one rep.


Stand near a weight bench, with your outer arm holding a dumbbell, fixated using the straps, and the palm of your inner hand facing in. Place your inner knee and hand on the top of the bench for support. Let your outer arm hang with the dumbbell in it. Engage your core and bend forward from the hips such that your back is roughly parallel to the floor and your outer knee is slightly bent. Raise your outer arm holding the dumbbell up and down while concentrating on pulling from your back muscles. Keep the posture of your body intact.
