Hand wrapping Basics - How to wrap your hands with short wraps
Click here to see video
This video demonstrates how to wrap your hands with short 116" hand wraps. Hand wrapping provides extra support for your wrist and knuckles so that you can get the most out of your boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai workouts without injury.
To wrap your hands, place the loop around your thumb and start wrapping around the back of the wrist. Wrap around the wrist 2 to 3 times. Next, wrap around the thumb to protect the thumb joint then once again around the wrist.
Go up to the knuckles along the back of the hand. Wrap around the knuckles 2 to 3 times. Finish by making an X on the back of the hand as you go back down to the wrist.
Repeat the X on the back of the hand and wrap the knuckles 1 or 2 more times. Finish by wrapping around the wrist and securing.
