How to make Olympic Lifting Straps

Here are 5 steps to make your own olympic lifting straps:

  1. Buy 1” Nylon Webbing. Many hardware stores will carry in and sell it by the foot. You can also purchase it online if buying in bulk. This is the same material that a dog/ cat leash is made out of
  2. Purchase a “hot knife.” You can find these at fabric and hobby stores. Here is an example online for purchase.
  3. Measure out approximately 25 inches of Nylon Webbing onto a piece of board and use the hot knife to cut through the Nylon Webbing leaving you with a 25 inch piece of Nylon Webbing
  4. Loop the webbing around and tape the ends together
  5. Repeat for another strap
