  3. Without straps...

  4. Without

  5. NO STRAPS!!!!

    As a rock climber, martial artist, and general strength athlete, grip strength is king! The importance of the mind muscle connection forged through heavy deads sans straps, can not be overstated.

    Also...thick bar deads when I'm feelin froggy. No straps of course!

    I couldn't have pulled that without it. Heck I can't pull over 400 without hook grip. I hurt myself using straps about a year and 1/2 ago haven't done deads with them since that time. Heavy bent over rows are
    a different story.

  18. Im in Sweden so i cant compete, but im in to support a great giveaway.

    I prefer to lift without straps myself. I find all my pull-ups has helped alot with building a solid grip.

  19. No straps and switch grip every set.

  20. For me, it totally depends on the exercise and setting.

    In Powerlifting, no straps (of course).
    In Strongman where it's max weight, or heavy weight for reps- straps
    For trap bar deadlifts, I will usually work up to 500lbs before adding straps..

  21. I'm in the "it depends" club. For speed work or >6 reps: strapless, mixed-grip and changing the overhand from set to set.

    Anything else I'm strapped in for the ride

    That's where I'm at... Just used straps for the first time in like 5 years last week and I really liked it. I've never failed a DL on grip though, and that's up to 655. So, I guess if you keep your grip strong you're good?

  23. deadlifts without straps....I have small wrists and the straps are usually big which means I have to wrap them a million times around the bar and reduces my grip rather than improve it

    Yes, not first to say straps.

    But only when over 90% of max.

    Not entering (just so others get a chance ), but I'm in the club of "depends on the goal" as well.

    I normally deadlift with straps because my goal is max weight for ~5 reps. My back is stronger than my grip. I work on improving grip on other days with other exercises, but I'm not selling my back short when I know it can handle more weight.

  26. Of the three, haven't tried Yok3d

    But with the majority here, I'd go without straps. Saw a dude pull 700+ at my gym with just chalk, so there's that

    this is exactly my thought process... i couldnt care less about grip strength when it comes down to that vs back development... aint nobody gonna tell me my hands look strong haha

  28. With or without as long as the weights loud lmao

    PM with any questions bros!

  29. It depends on what I'm doing.

    I haven't been able to deadlift in nearly a year because of injuries.

    But, i would go no straps for the first few sets and higher reps. Then once I kept failing because it was slipping, I'd throw the straps on so I could get the benefit of the heavier weight. I tend to use straps for most things, and do forearm specific stuff to get better grip strength.



  30. Versa gripps-- one of the best purchases I ever made( continue to make they last about 2 years for me)
