I can't work out how to use straps. I heard they should go counter-the-grip, right? That's fine, but lining up to pull for a new 5RM alone, they don't work. When one hand is strapped, it can't strap up the other hand! I tried to get a mate to help but even in that instance it was shit, my grip just couldn't hold the strap on. Work the grip, right? I will, but in the meantime my legs and back want a quicker solution, they're getting left-out.
My grip's my weak part. Small hands. This is very frustrating since i locked out 20kg more than previous, but my grip caused me to drop on rep #4.
Is there an alternative you could recommend? like some kind of rugged hook you can attach to your wrist? Cheers
