    The only caveat I will put here is on high-rep DB rows, but only once you're at a certain level of strength somewhere in the 2/3 of your BW area. For example, if you weigh 210 and you can do a set of 15-20 with 140s on DB rows, then straps are fine.

    Agreed, that is a monster row!

    Agreed, or if you have some overuse problems.

  6. Grip responds well to different kinds of static holds. In addition to holding a bar, you can pinch grip different objects that vary in size and shape.
