Excerpt: I found three lifting hooks on the web and need to hear from anyone with experience with them. these are the most expensive and lift a ton. I don't thnk I'll be lifting a ton though http://www.precisiontraining.com/hooks.cfm heres a cheaper versionof them http://store.yahoo.com/sportsunlimited/powerclawhooks.html I'll probably get these becaue of price also the hooks look wider (would help stablize single dumbell movements)

    was that aimed at me?
    cause i'm thinking hooks would be more dentrimental than straps for grip strength....

    I think hooks are a great thing. If your like most people your grip on heavy deadlifts for reps gives out first. At least if your deadlifting 400+ for reps.
    I use the hooks, just red ox brand.
    They were like 40.00 they work fine.
    I wouldnt sacrifice posterior chain devlopment for grip. So i definetly use them.
    Just train grip seperate with COC's.

    what kind of grip do you use on your deadlift? i use an alternating grip. i just recently got 515 off the ground, and had no problems with grip. i did rack deads a week ago with 600, and still had no problems with grip (and i could have done more.) but when i use a overhand grip with both hands, i start to run into problems. i use this grip for SLDL, and have to use straps with i use 315 for more than 5 reps.

    my arms get pumped and tired way before my back. straps help, I figure hooks would help more.
