    Glad you found it useful! Yes it’s amazing how wrong some people can be, and yet be so adamant that they are right.

    This video is soooo helpful! I bought straps and had no idea how to use them! The guys in the gym are using them wrong! LoL

    Wow. I’m really glad I watched this video! I just got some lifting straps and would have used them about as wrong as you can! Thanks!

    It’s a tool, and like all tools there is a time and a place to use it. I do as many sets as possible without assistance, but when the grip goes, it goes – and if I’m not done with my sets I’m going to use straps rather than lose my grip, partially drop half the bar, and potentially hurt something. The only absolute rule is that there are no absolute rules.

    Wrong, never use straps. He says he has dainty hands, so did I. But after deadlifting for a few months I was perfectly fine. What man doesn’t want tough hands? You don’t want to worry about your grip while deadlifting? That’s easily the best way to get a stronger grip. I’m not trying to bash just because y’all don’t know any better but there are much better ways to do any I’d tits

    Thanks Jeroen – in my experience going with a mixed grip like that negates the need for straps. I don’t do it often myself and there’s certainly nothing wrong with using straps with that grip, but I don’t think you’ll find it helps tremendously.

    Do you also recommend using them if you are using one hand underhand and one hand overhand grip, like with heavy deadlifts? Or do you think i won’t need the reverse grip thing when i am using straps? Nice and clear vid btw

    Hello, have you seen Mega Muscle Method? (search for it on google) You will realize the serious crimes we commit against our bodies. With Mega Muscle Method, you will discover how to bulk up quickly.

    It would be a shame if you did not bulk up when normal people do it easily using Atomic Max Muscle (check it out on Google).

    Harbinger makes decent ones like what I used in this video – they are cheap and effective. Better ones are available, but don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good!

    Do straps eff up ur wrist? I mean dont they put the stress on it by pulling wrist witht he straps???

    It’s a lot harder, for sure. They key is to keep it super loose until it’s time to cinch up tight, then try to do that in as few moves as possible. A lat pulldown bar with padded grips is a similar story. It depends on what kind of padding as well, if it’s smooth rubber it’s going to be a pain in the ass, no 2 ways about it.
