Sporto's DUP Program
These felt really light and I was able to explode off the floor. No belt. No straps. No wraps. It was a nice change of pace to lift at a lower intensity for once.
BB Pendlay Rows
I must admit, the last set of 315 was pretty hard to do without the straps. By that time, my grip was pretty tired and I had to throw on the straps and re-do the last 4 reps of the set to make sure I did them with good form. I still count the set as 8 reps and not 12.

Here is where the sweat started steamrolling down my face. At about this time in the workout, I had quite a bit of bloodflow in the back and I felt gi-normous.

No straps here either, but towards the end it was getting difficult to keep hold. Man, it's amazing how much grip strength I lost by relying on straps all this time. I mean, it's not like I didn't expect it, but I guess I didn't expect that it would have been this much. I love the straps because they allow me to focus on pulling with my elbows to make my back to the movements, but I'm not digging this weak grip strength stuff. Time to man up.
