I find that, after a heavy leg workout consisting of deads, maybe romanian deads and other grip intense exercises, when I stick on alternating lunges as assistance work at the end, my performance is severely limited by my grip when I try to go in the 10-12 rep range...meaning I have to compromise using heavier loads so that I don't have to drop the weights. That is, I'm begging for the set to end so that my hands and forearms feel better rather than so my quads stop hurting.
Select all solutions that you find to be the most helpful:
a) Do more grip work
b) Move lunges to earlier in the workout
c) Use straps
d) Less reps
e) Don't alternate legs, rest in between legs.
f) Suck it up
g) Use a barbell
