Use wraps/straps unless grip strength is a priority

You may want to warm up with no wraps then when you go heavey use the wraps that way you will still be increasing your grip strength.

i have to use my wraps for my last 1 or 2 sets of deads, shrugs. but as i increase weight for my weight, my strength goes up since.

bump what they said - it's not a tough problem to solve, straps or hooks --> (does anyone actually use those?)

I have used the hooks when I had tendinitis in both forearms. It was so bad I couldn't hold a paper towel without pain. I used the hooks so I could do deads and actually worked out a way that I could do cable curls without even putting the bar in my hands.

This is excellent advice. I used it with good success. I also made me one of those roller things for forearms where you put a weight on a string and roll it up. After a couple of weeks my forearm and grip strength was noticeably better.Originally Posted by CROWLER

straps is the best way to go but ive also increased my grip strength by doing the following
i got one of those gyro balls from sportmart they are used to help rock climbers they kill my forearms fingers and hands
also i do towel chin ups hang 2 towels over a chin up bar grab each towel and start pulling

use as much weight as you can without straps, then switch over for the remaining sets with straps. my grip has improved tremendously since i started doing this.
