LET'S BREAK THE ANATOMY OF A LIFTER DOWN
HOW TO FIND THE PERFECT FIT
To get the most out of your weightlifting shoes, they must fit correctly. The first thing to look for is a shoe that has sufficient room for your feet and toes, while offering a snug fit. Your feet shouldn’t slide around in the shoe and you want to make sure there is no lifting in the heel area. When trying on new lifters, do it in the evening as your feet swell during the day and wear your socks while doing so. Simulate a few movements you’d normally do, while wearing them, this way you can ensure a comfort and a secure fit.
CAN I WEAR LIFTERS FOR MY WOD?
If your WOD’s include weightlifting or any squat style movement as part of the workout, lifters could be the perfect choice. However, as most WOD’s incorporate a range of different movements and not just weightlifting moves, you’ll want to make sure you choose a lightweight lifter with a flexible forefoot. This will give you the flexibility you need for box jumps and other functional movements.
