I am a bit over 160 pounds, doing deadlifts with mixed grip with 253 pounds for 7-8 reps. Not much… my maximum is maybe 2x bodyweight.
But now my grip is giving up. I already am doing shrugs with wrist wraps, 155-165 pounds, for 12-15 (30 secs). When I stop doing Dls also, then my grip won’t get better or something? Isn’t this bad when I start using wrist wraps that soon?
I know people dl over 300 without wraps, some guys even with an overhand grip. Btw I pause at bottom on each rep, get a good grip again, do my rep, then grip and so on. On the last reps I pull the bar up and lock out, and the bars falls off my hands. And this makes hell lot of NOISE! And throwing weights is against gym rules.
So is this bad to use straps, will I be a weakgripped moron forever then? I will be shamed next week when I use straps with this weight
