Lately I've been deadlifting with straps since I pair it with pullups in an edt style(only for about 3weeks) I will usually wait till my grip dies, but even then I know i can be pulling more if i started out w/ straps rather than resort to them in fatigue.
My training is aimed soley at MMA.....
can you give me some opinions on straps for deadlifts? Should I forget the faggy strips of cloth? Or should I use them as a tool to load more weight onto the rest of my body and just train my grip in another session/point in time?
Same question goes for shrugs. I can shrug damn near 600lbs (once) if I really wanted to with straps. I'm stuck in the 3-4's (for reps) without them.
(stating that I recognize i DESPERATELY need to bring up my grip strength)
How would you go about training your grip to match the rest of your body's strength?
I've been using the tampon-neck-protector-thingy that people use for squats as a thick bar and do curls, side bends, and static holds with that to improve my grip.
I've yet to purchase the ivanko supergripper that i want but would that be helpful?
I really couldn't care about closing any grippers for certification i just want to get stronger and dominate opponents like mere children.
