    Many people are big believers on wrist straps. However I find them extremely difficult to lift with and I much prefer to feel my own skin on the bar as I feel I’ve got much better control. Although I would recommend everybody to try them as in some possibly many cases they could be greatly beneficial.

    I would use them sparingly personally – deadlifts and heavy rowing is great for improving grip strength and forearm development, and therefore I would suggest only using the straps for a few sets if possible so you do not neglect your grip!

    i only started using wrist strap about 3-4months ago and i’ve instantly felt the difference in using one. it helps alot on reaching those targeted repetitions while doing heavy load. before i’ve started using it, i can only do a few reps before my fingers start to give way to the weight.

    my method of avoiding over used of wrist strap is to only use it when you are on your last set with maximum weights put in. i usually go for 4 sets in each workout and straps will only come to play on the 3rd and 4th sets.

    but somehow i’m still baffled as i’ve seen a few fellow gym member using the straps for workout that does not requires any pulling ie. bench press, biceps curl, etc.
