MacGyvering lifting straps

  1. MacGyvering lifting straps


    So my grip killed me today on deadlifts and I need straps before my next workout; problem is I have no money.

    Any ideas on how to whip up some straps from common household materials?


  2. You could try to cut up a towel into strips, and sew loops in it. Is the $3-$5 for a new pair of straps really too much money for you?

    Not normally, I'll probably order some next week when I order other stuff. I mostly just wanted to find something to use by friday.
