If you’re not doing 400lbs+ you don’t need straps.
I think the weight that they are pulling is irrelevent. If their grip is giving out before the targeted muscle group is, then what would it hurt? If they cut their workout short because they can’t hang onto the bar, then they are short-changing themselves.
Like I said before, pull as much weight as you can until your grip gives out, then use the straps. It is a good idea to do additional grip strength exercises as well.[/quote]
I agree. Quitting just because your grip gives out will not allow you to get the most out of your deadlifting, unless of course you are deadlifting solely for grip strength, which I doubt anybody does.
