I often see posts on facebook and twitter bashing the use of lifting straps. Maybe I need to update 10 things for your gym to 11 things to clear up the confusion.
A week ago I was having a conversation about the topic and a few people told me they believe lifting straps are useless. That is a strong word. Then the follow on was if someone was to use lifting straps they will have weak hands.
Is that true? Watch the above video, decide for yourself.
My final thought on the topic – like all tools, the limit is typically your creativity and understanding of what you wish to accomplish.
Also I liked this guys article on the topic, good stuff.
