I want to improve my grip strength esp. for deadlifts, I don't want to use the wraps anymore.
I bought a set of heavy grips for $75, from 100lb pressure to 350lb pressure. I can just about get the 200 handles to meet.
Anyone use these? got any tips? I'm thinking of doing 3x6 3x per week with the 150's.
My deadlift max is 420lb with straps, I havent maxed out without them but I'm doing 5x5 deadlifts once per week, without the straps now. Today I made all five sets for 5 reps with 345lb. Last week was 5,5,2,5,2. I'm left handed and its my left hand that gives first, end up doing the last rep of each set with the bar on the tips of my fingers(I use an over and under grip alt. each set)
My questions mainly are:
Are these heavy grips the right direction to take for grip strength.
Is my grip weak for how much I deadlift in the first place(I want to make it stronger regardless)
Thank you for any input
