    I remember a thread awhile back on lifting straps but was there ever consensus on which ones are best? i have the harbinger black straps and really don't like them at all so im shopping around for a new pair

    I am a pretty big pussy as far as heavy weight goes, but I think I might finally break down and buy some straps. Lately my grip has started to suck toward the end of my workouts causing the end of my routine to not be as good as it could be.

    At least now I know which straps are good. ;)

    Do you guys get the regular length or the shorter ones?

    ok i looked at the ironmind blue straps but they look pretty similar to what i use now (harbinger black). ill give them a try but has anyone ever used harbinger straps? my main gripe with them is the material is so fucking thick and stiff u really cant get a good hold on the weight.

    i use the harbinger straps on occasion. I thought the material was pretty thick too, but I guess I got used to it. Try wrapping it around the bar differently. I was going to get some Spud Inc straps, but judging from the picture they are the same, just made better.

    I've never owned straps so purely from what I've read; for those saying they don't like their straps because they are too stiff - rub them on the sidewalk first and they break in better. Who knows, I probably read that on here.
