I've started to deadlift a little bit and with the heavier weights I'm finding out that my grip strength is pretty much just shitty. So while I'm going to work on that, I thought that I would get a set of straps so that I can still lift heavy. Thing is, I have no idea what to look for. I figured if I bought from EFS I couldn't go to wrong so I started there and learned a few things just from reading the product information.
The ones I was looking at getting were the Orange Stripe 1.5" Wrist Straps. I figured the 1.5" would be better for me because I have smaller wrists. Am I right or wrong? Also, I saw that they were 26" long. To me, that sounds excessive but I'm sure it's just ignorance on my part. Anyone care to give me the low-down on straps and what makes them good or bad?
