How To

How to wrap hands for boxing training

Hand wrapping is an essential step to prevent injuries. Start with the loop around your thumb, and roll the wrap over the back of your hand three times. Wrap three times around your knuckles, then crisscross your fingers. Then, create a tight anchor at your wrist. Finish with more crisscrosses. Then secure the Velcro. The wrap should feel snug but still allow flexibility to make a good fist.
