If your grip is really limiting your progression, use straps as soon as your grip fails (NOT before)
Make sure you wrist is straight. If you curl your wrist joint (even slightly) while DLing or doing Pull/Chin-Ups, you weaken your grip considerably and tire much faster.
Grip strength/strength-endurance improves slower than other muscle groups, so you just have to be patient and wait till your grip performance catches up with the rest of your body.
Wrong, wrong, and one more time WRONG!
Look dude, Forearms are an amazing mussel to choose to build. Forearms gain almost no fat, lose mussel very slowly once they gain it, and they are used as functional mussels in so many ways. I am a forearm Fanatic!

If you want grip, don’t avoid the problem. Forearms are easy to build and within just your one or two recovery days, you will see a difference. [/quote]
If you’re going to tell someone their wrong, might be a good idea to tell them why and not just say why forearm muscles are great. He is right. IT is harder to keep grip strength up with most muscles otherwise why the hell would anyone need straps?
BTW, while doing wrist curls can help grip, just doing forearm curls will not alone increase grip strength as much as pulling heavy fucking weight off the floor without straps. Also doing cleans(and other O lifts), and farmer walks will help alot more than some small forearms curls.
