John Brookfield's Grip Tips

Lock, Load, Lift

If you’re not using IronMind Lifting Straps, you’re probably not lifting as much as you could be.

IronMind’s competition-quality lifting straps are super-strong, super-dependable: they won’t let you down.

No wonder they are the top choice at the World’s Strongest Man contest, where the Strong-Enough Lifting Straps were named the official lifting strap in 2010.

IronMind’s Lifting Straps are available in 5 styles, so that you can match the right lifting straps to your lifting requirements.

Short & Sweet Lifting Straps

IronMind’s original lifting strap, classic style used by Olympic-style weightlifters. With no sewn loop and designed for quick bail-outs, this is the style preferred by top lifters like Mario Martinez, the last American to win an Olympic medal in men’s weightlifting.

Blue, flat webbing (no sewn loop); 18” long x 1-1/2” wide.

Sew-Easy™ Lifting Straps

Probably the easiest of all lifting straps to use, these straps are used by hardcore weightlifters and recreational lifters alike. Even if you’re all thumbs when it comes to lifting straps, you’ll find Sew-Easy Lifting Straps a breeze—which means bigger lifts and more strength are within your grasp.

Blue, ends sewn together to form a loop; 21-1/4” loop x 1-1/2” wide.

Strong-Enough™ Lifting Straps

Named the official lifting straps of the World’s Strongest Man contest in 2010, it’s the dominant lifting strap on the professional strongman circuit—versatile enough for nearly everyone and nearly every application.

Blue, sewn loop at one end; 21-1/4” long x 1-1/2” wide. 

Blue Twos™ Lifting Straps

If you prefer a little extra length and width in your lifting straps, and want the benefits of a custom nylon designed for added levels of strength and durability with even less stretch, Blue Twos Lifting Straps could be just for you.

Blue, sewn loop at one end; 23-1/4” long x 1-3/4” wide. 

Black and Fourth™ Lifting Straps

Add another notch of width and length to the Blue Twos Lifting Straps, use the same custom nylon, and you have this bad boy of a lifting strap. Not for everyone, but if you have big wrists, lift really big weights, and want plenty of length for thick bars too, here’s your lifting strap.

Black, sewn loop at one end; 25-1/4” long x 2” wide.
