What do you think of using thick grip pads instead of gloves.
Main aim is to thicken the bar - for deadlifts, chins, rows, and even bicep curls, skull crushers etc.
I believe this is supposed to improve grip strength, forearm development and allow you to target/recruit the muscle in mind more easily.
I would not waste money on an expensive set of grip pads, I will just buy some heavy duty, extra thick foam/rubber.
Thoughts on using grip pads to thicken the bar - noticeable advantages?
