Best Answer

Women and girls use grips to help them stay on the uneven bars. Grips go on your hands and strap around your wrists. They help you get a grip on the bars so you don't slip off. Gymnasts use them in higher levels (5-10) Gymnasts use them when they are mostly swinging. Hope this answer helped! :)

What are those things that you put on your hands when you do the bars in gymnastics?

The "things" that gymnasts put on their hands when they perform on bars are called grips. Grips are friction reducers that help prevent hands from getting "rips" which are caused by the continuous pressure of the hands on the bar. Some coaches discourage grip use in the early years of training as they can be quite cumbersome for the athletes to deal with, but the more hours spent on the bar, the more rips a gymnast is likely to acquire.
