  1. I don't see a negative to straps honestly, they only help once your grip starts to fail. Myself personally and everyone larger than me that I've trained with all used straps for back day and all had huge forearms

    Agreed. Nothing at all wrong with using straps. Especially with a farmers walk. I personally do this exercise 3 times a week and don't use straps...... Yet.

    But you bet your a$$ if I'm doing laps in the gym with 115 dB's I'm two strapping it bro. Lol

  3. Haha, well looks like I'm the douche then...but fück it I'm standing by it! Ya bunch of Nancy's!

    hahaha. I wouldn't say that, but straps def allow me to push my body further than my grip would normally allow. Those last few heavy rows or heavy pull downs that I would've had to stop because my grip would've slipped, but got thanks to the straps add up

    Ive been a construction worker and a mechanic since I was 15 years old, so that, on top of lifting, my grip has never been an issue. I finally broke down and bought straps this year, but only for snatch grip work

    nice, I have some buddies that work construction and they all have really big forearms and strong hands. Makes sense, you're basically working your hands out all the time. But personally when I'm trying to rep the whole stack for a machine or something like that my grip def goes out before my back does. I also like straps for heavy lunges because I concentrate on my quads and not holding the weight. Focus! Haha

  7. I can definitely see that!! I should've been more clear in my original post. The d-bag I spoke of was doing 20 meter farmer walks with 53 lb kettle bells.....

  8. I don't use straps on mine but could see how it'd be useful for like 125 lb dumbbells.

    yeah, this is exactly what I mean, say I'm doing bent over db rows, the 100s are ok, the 110s were fine, but then im doing the set with the 120s and let's say normally maybe I'll get 8-9 and my grip will start to give out, whereas the straps will let me get that extra 2-3 reps that can lead to better back development, and really my forearms are actually getting a better workout with straps because I'm still squeezing the weight as hard as I can the whole time, just getting more reps, it's kinda like having a spotter for your hands if that makes sense

  10. Straps make sense when you get to heavy weight. But people using straps as beginners never let their forearm grip develop as fully as I could.

    I don't even strap to deadlift , chalk up or get out.

    I have extremely small bones! My wrists r a lil over 5"...
    Generally I stay the fk away from straps, but it sure pisses me off when my grip gives out, when I know damn well I can lift much more!!!

    hahaha! Ohhhhh I thought they were maybe using the metric system in Canada :-P

  17. I use straps for a lot of stuff. On GH my grip hasent been the greatest from sides some days. I see why pros use them so religiously.
    The advice I give is just that... Advice, purely my opinion. Not medical advice

  18. I use straps on deadlifts heavier than 4 plates, dumbbells heavier than 110 for pulling or carrying exercises, and snatches. I don't see the pt of using them on pushing activities which I see at times.

    im pretty much the same, and yes that is pointless. I've known guys that always wear the straps, kinda a habit I guess. I had one friend I trained with that always did. When he benched he just ran the strap through his fingers tho, he didn't wrap them around. I think he just liked having them on his hands to play with. Idk

  20. came across these at biglots and got more excited than anybody ever should lol

    That's not a bad deal at all. I'm not a fan but at that price I could be...

  24. I'll use straps, gloves, wraps, suits, pink underwear, hell a dildo outta my a$$, and when I'm 240 no ones gonna say $hit about it.....

    Until then I don't use any of it lol

    Gh weakens your grip?

    Yes side effects are carpul tunnel syndrome (cts). CTS weakens grip. My hands swell up slightly and I can't squeeze as hard.

    Alot of people say "the old school bodybuilders didn't use straps so the guys now shouldn't need them" blah blah blah. I bite my tongue. The old school guys like franco and arnold or frank weren't on 10-20iu or more of HGH. There's a reason why bodybuilding evolved like it has.

    I never used straps and had great strength from being a mechanic, construction and riding MX. I could deadlift 500lbs 6 months ago no straps or DB row 120s no problem. Now on GH... can't pull more than 405 for 5reps until I fail hahaha. Now I strap da fuk up and pull weight.

    Interesting. That's true, those guys didn't use high amounts of hgh, but damn they looked good and not all bloated and blocky.

    They didn't have GH. Look at mid 90s bodybuilders. Look how distended their guts are. That's when they started realizing running a ton of GH probably wasn't smart because everything grows lol. Ronnie coleman was one but he fixed his issue and got rid if his gh gut but the mid to late 90s changed everything. They learned the power of gh and slin together. That's the main difference between old and new bodybuilders. AAS usage changed but not much, training evolved but didn't change, diets are the same just adjusted for size. Its interesting to see how it all changed. What's next? Peptides? Will that change bodybuilding?

    I wish Gh never happened in bodybuilding. My a and p professor went off on body builders abusing that and insulin today during our endocrine lecture.
