    A friend came into town yesterday and we went to go work out.

    I get out my straps for shrugs/hang cleans and he gives me the :ugh: look. He plays football at Cornell and they don't let them use straps, something about making your hands stronger.

    nothing wrong with using them, but I agree with him, if you're making every other body part stronger, why not make your hands stronger?

    I do for back. If youre a bodybuilder use them, if youre a football player, I dont know, go jerk off however you want. I train for sick delts and lats. Not to grab other men with a tight grip and have them blast their juicy manpaste all over my helmet

    All the time. I use em for pullups, BB rows, upright rows, lat pull downs, rack pulls, and shrugs. Mostly becuase tendonitis in my forearm is really bad and if I don't use straps I am incapacitated for a couple of weeks. Takes the stress off.
