    Think about it this way... you (not you specifically) will spend 40 bucks on creatine, vitamins, preworkout a pack of protien shakes etc... and how much weight does that add to the bar? lol more then likely nothing.. spend 40 on some "plastic" use em for some max effort lifts and you add 5-10 pounds to the bar for 40 bucks.... seems alot more worth it then supps ya feel?

    I've used them on flat bench both regular and close grip. Feels good, had to lower the weight about 20lbs, but felt really good. Not as much forearm pump, but a different stretch for chest/shoulders. I like it and will rotate them in and out of chest workouts, as well as all other body parts (except legs and abs).

    This. I have never had a problem with buying lifting accessories. But am VERY selective with supplements because only a certain percentage actually work. Unlike if you order a weight sled you know what you are getting is just that.

    Tried the FG's on deadlifts today, could only pull 225 x 5. Went to straps and pulled 455 x 1.

    I also tried them on one arm DB rows, 70 x 8 (losing grip), then went to straps for 130 x 8.

    So, moral of the story to me is I'll start heavy with straps and finish up with the FG's on higher reps / lower weight. My grip is so tired now...

    I have a pair and I love them. I use them almost every day except legs obviously. Training with these grips helped me hit a 500lb raw dead lift at 198 lb.

    I bought a pair of "Fat Gripz" this week. I'll update once I get to using them. The majority of feedback I've come across has been impressive.

    I got mine on Tues. Used them on Wed for dumbell rows and dumbell curls. Had to lower the weight but really felt my forearms during both exercises. Still feeling my forearms a little today.

    get some. I am loving using these for presses. For me it really enhances the mind muscle connection.

    I only use my for pulling movements... pressing movements it doesnt affect my lifts at all. But I had decent forearms to begin with... (pulling 405 for sets with over over grip) but these things will definitely make a bitch outa you on pulling movements
    Bench - 355
    Squat - 405
    Deadlift - 600
