I was telling my friend about my hands getting tired as my workout progressed and that when doing shrugs my hands were not strong enough to hold the necessary weight without it slipping gradually. I use 80 LBS dumbells to shrug and the bells start to slip by around the 7th rep (3 sets X 10 reps).
Well, my friend bought me a set of Hooks attached to wristbands to help hold the weights so I can keep on shrugging.
Is it wise to use this equipment or will it hurt me by not allowing my hands and fore-arms to strengthen? Should I shrug with less weight?
