Hand and knee grips/pads?

Just ordered my first pole and am waiting for it. I’ve taken some beginner classes before but have terrible grip strength and need hand and knee grips. Any brands recommended?

Hi! Unless you have super sweaty hands you don't need gloves or grip accessories. However, if you're talking about grip aids to apply to skin well that will depend on what problem you're having. Do you have dry hands/skin, or sweaty hands/skin?

Before buying grip aids for skin, first make sure you have fully warmed up your body and the pole, sometimes just taking a bit more time to prepare can help.

If you slip because of sweat an antiperspirant like Dry hands powder, Carpe Lotion or Tite Grip II is what you'll want for hands and body. If you slip because you have dry skin use a sticky or tacky grip aid like, trick tac towel, or my favorite is a mixture of mighty grip and this homemade spray [www.studioveena.com]

To improve grip strength work on my hand and wrist strength routine! [www.studioveena.com]

I have the knee pads from Mighty Grip- I got them to support my knees after spraining my rightknee a couple of times. They're ok but they make my knees sweat and I rarely use them now- only for floorwork which I avoid anyway if I can ;)

To strengthen knee pit grip I'd recommend side climbs or working towards it and side crunches with leg hook ([www.studioveena.com]
