    Use your hands as much as you can. It's not the end of the world to use straps on very heavy sets or super high volume, but don't use them as a crutch.

    Re: Deadlifting with straps

    this topic came up a few weeks ago. the guys who wear straps will argue for them. the guys who don't will argue against them

    as someone who used to use accessories for a short time i am 100% against using them. they will increase imbalances which are going to cause you problems. you aren't improving your raw grip, you are causing it to lag. i am a proponent of raw lifting with proper form. no belts, no straps, no gloves, no nothing. when you get to mobster's level you can do what you want to set PR's or what not, but especially younger guys or recreational lifters you have zero business using any sort of accessorie!

    Whatever you prefer... Try both. Why do you have to ask?

    Strengthening your hands without the straps is the biggest bonus of all!

    Domt use them. Your grip will suffer and never improve.
