Build Bigger, Stronger Arms Faster. Grab a Better Grip!
Most gym equipment only provides straight cylindrical bars and handles, placing high pressure on a relatively small grip area. This often causes irritation and discomfort, especially when lifting heavy weights. While regular fat grips can alleviate some of these issues by increasing the diameter of the bar, they can still cause imbalances and strain on the hands, wrists, elbows, and shoulder joints. This is why we developed Optimo Pro grips.
With their unique wing-shaped design, Optimo Pro grips provide a neutral hand position that supports the wrist and decreases strain on the joints. The wing shape also helps prevent imbalances and allows for a more comfortable and effective grip during your workouts. Additionally, Optimo Pro grips are easy to install on any bar or handle, allowing you to quickly and easily transform your workout equipment.
Experience insane forearm and arm pumps! The increased diameter of the bar provided by Optimo Pro grips enhances muscle stimulation and recruitment during your workouts, leading to bigger and stronger arms. Whether you're training arms, bench presses, or overhead press, Optimo Pro grips can help you achieve your goals with less discomfort and better results.
Transform everyday barbells, dumbbells, cable attachments and plate-loaded machines into kinesthetic bars so you can lift more naturally and effectively.

Optimo Pro grips are the result of extensive research and development in collaboration with hundreds of strength training athletes and ergonomists at the University of Toronto. Our goal was to create a product that not only enhances grip strength but also helps prevent joint injuries and discomfort commonly associated with weightlifting. The unique "ergonomic wing" design provides cushioned support and adapts to the natural shape of your hand, reducing the strain on your joints and tendons during high-force contractions. With Optimo Pro grips, you can take your workouts to the next level and experience improved performance and comfort in your strength training routine.
Optimo Pro grips force your muscles to engage stronger than when you do the same exercise with a standard bar, effectively “turning on” the surrounding muscles. It’s all due to Sherrington's Law of Irradiation.

Why Choose Optimo?
Optimo Pro grips stand out from other thick grip products on the market for several reasons. Firstly, our patent-pending "ergonomic wing" not only provides cushioned support to your hand, but also adapts to the natural shape of your hand, reducing the strain on your joints and tendons during high-force contractions. This unique design feature promotes a more natural and comfortable grip, allowing you to focus on your workout without worrying about discomfort or injury.
Additionally, unlike other products that claim to be ergonomically designed, but are essentially standard cylinders, Optimo Pro grips are designed to naturally adapt to the shape of your hands. This means that you get the additional support you need in a maximum force environment, while also benefiting from a comfortable, customized grip.
Our high-grade, non-slip silicone rubber compound was created to withstand even the most intense workouts, making Optimo Grips the ideal choice for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. This material is also resistant to wear and tear, ensuring that your grips will last longer and perform better than other products on the market. Plus, the unique texture of our grips promotes better blood flow and can help prevent calluses and blisters, allowing you to train harder and longer.
1. Open the slit in each grip and slide it over the bar, tightly adjusting it into position.
2. Place your hand so the winged portion is resting in your palm, while ensuring your wrists are aligned perpendicular to the exercise bar.
Optimo Pro grips are designed to provide a custom fit for each hand, ensuring maximum comfort and support during your workouts. The customized left and right grip in each pair are engineered to fit the unique shape and size of your hands, providing a personalized experience that can't be matched by generic, one-size-fits-all grips.
By ensuring a proper fit, Optimo Thick Grips help to distribute weight evenly across your palm, reducing the risk of joint and tendon strain while also improving your lifting form. Additionally, the custom fit allows for a more secure grip, so you can focus on pushing yourself to the limit without worrying about slippage or losing your grip.

We understand hand size and grip strength varies greatly from one person to the next. So it's important to start with correct size. As your strength increases, you will graduate to using a larger diameter. The Optimo Pro is best size for most goals and hand sizes. That being said, if you have smaller hands or weak grip strength you may want to consider the Optimo One.
