Yes I am the same way. I get my air when I’m standing. All of my best pulls have been without straps. I just can’t brace as well when I’m strapped to the bar and not standing straight.
I just got a pair of figure 8 straps to (hopefully) correct this problem. They go on fast enough to where I should be able to get my air while standing and still set up quickly enough. I’ll know more later this week.
Of course, all of this depends on why you’re deadlifting in the first place, and what you expect to get out of using straps, or not.
